Israel’s Rejection of Christ

I speak the truth in Christ(A)—I am not lying; my conscience is testifying to me with the Holy Spirit[a] that I have intense sorrow and continual anguish in my heart. For I could almost wish(B) to be cursed(C) and cut off[b] from the Messiah for the benefit of my brothers, my own flesh and blood. They are Israelites,(D) and to them belong the adoption,(E) the glory,(F) the covenants,(G) the giving of the law,(H) the temple service,(I) and the promises.(J) The ancestors are theirs,(K) and from them, by physical descent,[c] came the Messiah,(L) who is God(M) over all,(N) praised forever.[d](O) Amen.
