New American Standard Bible
16 If the (A)first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are as well.
17 But if some of the (B)branches were broken off, and (C)you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the [a]rich root of the olive tree, 18 do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that (D)it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. 19 (E)You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” 20 Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you (F)stand by your faith. (G)Do not be conceited, but fear; 21 for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. 22 See then the kindness and severity of God: to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s (H)kindness, (I)if you continue in His kindness; for otherwise you too (J)will be cut off. 23 And they also, (K)if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in; for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?Read full chapter
