Romans 11


11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? By no means. For
 I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, [of] the tribe
 of Benjamin.
11:2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Know
 ye not what the scripture saith of Elijah? how he maketh
 intercession to God against Israel, saying,
11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thy
 altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
11:4 But what saith the answer of God to him? I have reserved to
 myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal.
11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant
 according to the election of grace.
11:6 And if by grace, then [is it] no more of works: otherwise
 grace is no more grace. But if of works, then is it no more
 grace: otherwise work is no more work.
11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh
 for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were
 blinded.
11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit
 of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they
 should not hear;) to this day.
11:9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a
 trap, and a stumbling-block, and a recompense to them:
11:10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow
 down their back always.
11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? By
 no means: but [rather] through their fall salvation [is come]
 to the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy.
11:12 Now if the fall of them [be] the riches of the world, and
 the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much
 more their fullness?
11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle
 of the Gentiles, I magnify my office:
11:14 If by any means I may incite to emulation [them who are]
 my flesh, and may save some of them.
11:15 For if the rejection of them [be] the reconciling of the
 world, what [shall] the receiving [of them be], but life from
 the dead?
11:16 For if the first fruit [is] holy, the lump [is] also
 [holy]: and if the root [is] holy, so [are] the branches.
11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being
 a wild olive-tree, art ingrafted among them, and with them
 partakest of the root and fatness of the olive-tree;
11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boastest, thou
 bearest not the root, but the root thee.
11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I
 might be ingrafted.
11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou
 standest by faith. Be not high-minded, but fear:
11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, [take heed]
 lest he also spare not thee.
11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them
 who fell, severity; but towards thee, goodness, if thou shalt
 continue in [his] goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut
 off.
11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall
 be ingrafted: for God is able to ingraft them again.
11:24 For if thou wast cut out of the olive-tree which is wild
 by nature, and wast ingrafted contrary to nature into a good
 olive-tree; how much more shall these, which are the natural
 [branches], be grafted into their own olive-tree?
11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of
 this mystery, (lest ye should be wise in your own conceits)
 that blindness in part hath happened to Israel, until the
 fullness of the Gentiles shall be come in.
11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There
 shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away
 ungodliness from Jacob:
11:27 For this [is] my covenant to them, when I shall take away
 their sins.
11:28 As concerning the gospel, [they are] enemies for your
 sakes: but as concerning the election, [they are] beloved for
 the father's sakes.
11:29 For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance.
11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have
 now obtained mercy through their unbelief;
11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through
 your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might
 have mercy upon all.
11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge
 of God! how unsearchable [are] his judgments, and his ways past
 finding out!
11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been
 his counselor?
11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be
 recompensed to him again?
11:36 For from him, and by him, and to him [are] all things: to
 whom [be] glory for ever. Amen.
