Romans 9:3-5 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
3 For I could almost wish to be cursed and cut off[a] from the Messiah for the benefit of my brothers, 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,[b] came the Messiah, who is God over all, praised forever.[c] Amen.
