Romans 111599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
11 1 Lest the casting off of the Jews should be limited according to the outward appearance, 4 he showeth that Elijah was in times past decieved: 16 and that, seeing they have an holy root, 23 many of them likewise shall be holy. 18, 24 He exhorteth the Gentiles to be humble, 33 and crieth out, that God’s judgments are unsearchable.
3 Lord, they have killed thy Prophets, and dug down thine Altars: and I am left alone, and they seek my life?
5 Even so then, at this present time is there a remnant according to the [h]election of grace.
7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that he sought: but the election hath obtained it, and the rest have been [k]hardened,
9 And David saith, [o]Let their table be made a snare, and a net, and a stumbling block, even for a recompense unto them.
10 Let their eyes be darkened that they see not, and bow down their back always.
11 [p]I demand then, Have they stumbled, that they should fall? God forbid: but through their fall, salvation cometh unto the Gentiles, to provoke them to follow them.
14 To try if by any means I might provoke them of my flesh to follow them, and might save some of them.
15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving be, [u]but life from the dead?
18 [ab]Boast not thyself against the branches: and if thou boast thyself, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches are broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well: through unbelief they are broken off, and thou standest by faith: be not high-minded, but [ac]fear.
21 For if God spared not the [ad]natural branches, take heed, lest he also spare not thee.
22 [ae]Behold therefore the [af]bountifulness, and severity of God: toward them which have fallen, severity: but toward thee, bountifulness, if thou continue in his [ag]bountifulness: or else thou shalt also be cut off.
23 [ah]And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For if thou wast cut out of the Olive tree, which was wild by [ai]nature, and was grafted contrary to nature in a [aj]right Olive tree, how much more shall they that are by nature, be grafted in their own Olive tree?
25 [ak]For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this secret (lest ye should be arrogant in [al]yourselves) that partly obstinacy is come to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be [am]come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved, as it is written, The deliverer shall come out of Zion, and shall turn away the ungodliness from Jacob.
27 And this is my covenant to them, When I shall take away their sins.
29 [aq]For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30 [ar]For even as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31 Even so now have they not believed by the mercy showed unto you, that they also may obtain mercy.
32 For God hath shut up [as]all in unbelief, that he might have mercy on all.
34 [aw]For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who was his counselor?
35 Or who hath given unto him [ax]first, and he shall be recompensed?
36 For of him, and through him, and for [ay]him are all things: to him be glory forever. Amen.
