Romans 9:1-6 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
Israel’s Rejection of Christ
9 I speak the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience testifies to me through the Holy Spirit[a]— 2 that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. 3 For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off[b] from Christ for the benefit of my brothers and sisters, my own flesh and blood. 4 They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the temple service, and the promises. 5 The ancestors are theirs, and from them, by physical descent,[c] came the Christ, who is God over all, praised forever.[d] Amen.
God’s Gracious Election of Israel
6 Now it is not as though the word of God has failed, because not all who are descended from Israel are Israel.
