Romans 9:17-19Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh [in Ex 9:16] that “I raised you up for this very purpose: so that I might demonstrate My power[a] in you, and so that My name might be proclaimed in all the earth”. 18 So then, He has-mercy-on whom He wants, and He hardens[b] whom He wants.
The Creator Is Making Known His Wrath And His Mercy In Humankind
19 Therefore you will say to me, “Why then does He still find-fault? For who has resisted[c] His will?”
Romans 9:17That is, My power both to punish (Egypt) and to save (Israel); My wrath and My mercy.
Romans 9:18God is not unrighteous to harden because all punishment for sin is earned and deserved.
Romans 9:19How can people be held accountable since God has mercy or hardens as He pleases and people cannot resist His will in either direction? Paul’s answer is that people are accountable, and the Creator intends to demonstrate both His wrath and mercy on mankind.
