(A)For by grace you have been saved (B)through faith, and that not of yourselves; (C)it is the gift of God, not of (D)works, lest anyone should (E)boast. 10 For we are (F)His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Brought Near by His Blood

11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called (G)the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— 12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

16 For if (A)the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. 17 And if (B)some of the branches were broken off, (C)and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and [a]fatness of the olive tree, 18 (D)do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.

19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of (E)unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, [b]goodness, (F)if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise (G)you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, (H)if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be (I)wise in your own [c]opinion, that (J)blindness in part has happened to Israel (K)until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be [d]saved, as it is written:

(L)“The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
27 For (M)this is My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins.”
