26 and in this way[a] all Israel will be saved.(A) As it is written:

“The deliverer will come from Zion;
    he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
27 And this is[b] my covenant with them
    when I take away their sins.”[c](B)

28 As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies(C) for your sake; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs,(D) 29 for God’s gifts and his call(E) are irrevocable.(F) 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient(G) to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, 31 so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now[d] receive mercy as a result of God’s mercy to you. 32 For God has bound everyone over to disobedience(H) so that he may have mercy on them all.


33 Oh, the depth of the riches(I) of the wisdom and[e] knowledge of God!(J)
    How unsearchable his judgments,
    and his paths beyond tracing out!(K)
34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord?
    Or who has been his counselor?”[f](L)
35 “Who has ever given to God,
    that God should repay them?”[g](M)
36 For from him and through him and for him are all things.(N)
    To him be the glory forever! Amen.(O)
