11:1 I ask then, Did God reject his people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
11:7 What then? That which Israel seeks for, that he didn`t obtain, but the election obtained it, and the rest were hardened.
11:9 David says, "Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, A stumbling block, and a retribution to them.
11:11 I ask then, did they stumble that they might fall? Certainly not! But by their fall salvation has come to the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy.
11:12 Now if their fall is the riches of the world, and their loss the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fullness?
11:13 For I speak to you who are Gentiles. Since then as I am an apostle to Gentiles, I glorify my ministry;
11:14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh, and may save some of them.
11:16 If the first fruit is holy, so is the lump. If the root is holy, so are the branches.
11:17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them, and became partaker with them of the root of the richness of the olive tree;
11:19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in."
11:20 True; by their unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by your faith. Don`t be conceited, but fear;
11:21 for if God didn`t spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you.
11:22 See then the goodness and severity of God. Toward those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness; otherwise you also will be cut off.
11:23 They also, if they don`t continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
11:24 For if you were cut out of that which is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more will these, which are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
11:25 For I don`t desire, brothers, to have you ignorant of this mystery, so that you won`t be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles have come in,
11:26 and so all Israel will be saved. Even as it is written, "There will come out of Zion the Deliverer, And he will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.
11:27 This is my covenant to them, When I will take away their sins."
11:31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that by the mercy shown to you they may also obtain mercy.
11:32 For God has shut up all to disobedience, that he might have mercy on all.
11:33 Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out!
11:34 For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?"
11:35 Or who has first given to him, And it will be repaid to him again?
11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things. To him be the glory for ever! Amen.
