All Israel Will Be Saved

25 I do not want you to be ignorant(A) of this mystery,(B) brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited:(C) Israel has experienced a hardening(D) in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in,(E) 26 and in this way[a] all Israel will be saved.(F) As it is written:

“The deliverer will come from Zion;
    he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
27 And this is[b] my covenant with them
    when I take away their sins.”[c](G)

28 As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies(H) for your sake; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs,(I) 29 for God’s gifts and his call(J) are irrevocable.(K) 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient(L) to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, 31 so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now[d] receive mercy as a result of God’s mercy to you. 32 For God has bound everyone over to disobedience(M) so that he may have mercy on them all.

Doxology

33 Oh, the depth of the riches(N) of the wisdom and[e] knowledge of God!(O)
    How unsearchable his judgments,
    and his paths beyond tracing out!(P)
34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord?
    Or who has been his counselor?”[f](Q)
35 “Who has ever given to God,
    that God should repay them?”[g](R)
36 For from him and through him and for him are all things.(S)
    To him be the glory forever! Amen.(T)

A Living Sacrifice

12 Therefore, I urge you,(U) brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice,(V) holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform(W) to the pattern of this world,(X) but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.(Y) Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is(Z)—his good, pleasing(AA) and perfect will.
