Romans 9:4-6 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

who are Israelites and to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;

of whom are the fathers, and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

It is not as though the Word of God hath taken no effect. For they are not all Israel, who are of Israel;

Romans 9:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption to sonship; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who is God over all, forever praised![a] Amen.

God’s Sovereign Choice

It is not as though God’s word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel.
