Romans 11-13

Israel Is Not Cast Away

11 I say then, God has not (A)rejected His people, has He? (B)May it never be! For (C)I too am an Israelite, [a]a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God (D)has not rejected His people whom He (E)foreknew. (F)Or do you not know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? “Lord, (G)they have killed Your prophets, they have torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they are seeking my life.” But what [b]is the divine response to him? “(H)I have kept for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time (I)a remnant according to God’s [c]gracious choice. But (J)if it is by grace, it is no longer [d]on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.

What then? What (K)Israel is seeking, it has not obtained, but [e]those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were (L)hardened; just as it is written,

(M)God gave them a spirit of stupor,
Eyes to see not and ears to hear not,
Down to this very day.”

And David says,

(N)Let their table become a snare and a trap,
And a stumbling block and a retribution to them.
10 (O)Let their eyes be darkened to see not,
And bend their backs forever.”

11 (P)I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? (Q)May it never be! But by their transgression (R)salvation has come to the Gentiles, to (S)make them jealous. 12 Now if their transgression is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their [f](T)fulfillment be! 13 But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as (U)I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if somehow I might (V)move to jealousy (W)my [g]fellow countrymen and (X)save some of them. 15 For if their rejection is the (Y)reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but (Z)life from the dead? 16 If the (AA)first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too.

17 But if some of the (AB)branches were broken off, and (AC)you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the [h]rich root of the olive tree, 18 do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that (AD)it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. 19 (AE)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 (AF)stand by your faith. (AG)Do not be conceited, but fear; 21 for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. 22 Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s (AH)kindness, (AI)if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also (AJ)will be cut off. 23 And they also, (AK)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 were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?

25 For (AL)I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this (AM)mystery—so that you will not be (AN)wise in your own estimation—that a partial (AO)hardening has happened to Israel until the (AP)fullness of the Gentiles has come in; 26 and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written,

(AQ)The Deliverer will come from Zion,
He will remove ungodliness from Jacob.”
27 (AR)This is [i]My covenant with them,
(AS)When I take away their sins.”

28 [j]From the standpoint of the gospel they are (AT)enemies for your sake, but [k]from the standpoint of God’s choice they are beloved for (AU)the sake of the fathers; 29 for the gifts and the (AV)calling of God (AW)are irrevocable. 30 For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so these also now have been disobedient, that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy. 32 For (AX)God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.

33 Oh, the depth of (AY)the riches [l]both of the (AZ)wisdom and knowledge of God! (BA)How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! 34 For (BB)who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor? 35 Or (BC)who has first given to Him [m]that it might be paid back to him again? 36 For (BD)from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. (BE)To Him be the glory [n]forever. Amen.

Dedicated Service

12 Therefore (BF)I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to (BG)present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, [o]acceptable to God, which is your [p]spiritual service of worship. And do not (BH)be conformed to (BI)this [q]world, but be transformed by the (BJ)renewing of your mind, so that you may [r](BK)prove what the will of God is, that which is good and [s]acceptable and perfect.

For through (BL)the grace given to me I say to everyone among you (BM)not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to (BN)each a measure of faith. For (BO)just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, (BP)who are many, are (BQ)one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Since we have gifts that (BR)differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if (BS)prophecy, [t]according to the proportion of his faith; if [u](BT)service, in his serving; or he who (BU)teaches, in his teaching; or he who (BV)exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with [v](BW)liberality; (BX)he who [w]leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with (BY)cheerfulness.

Let (BZ)love be without hypocrisy. (CA)Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be (CB)devoted to one another in brotherly love; [x]give preference to one another (CC)in honor; 11 not lagging behind in diligence, (CD)fervent in spirit, (CE)serving the Lord; 12 (CF)rejoicing in hope, (CG)persevering in tribulation, (CH)devoted to prayer, 13 (CI)contributing to the needs of the [y]saints, [z](CJ)practicing hospitality.

14 (CK)Bless those who persecute [aa]you; bless and do not curse. 15 (CL)Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 (CM)Be of the same mind toward one another; (CN)do not be haughty in mind, but [ab]associate with the lowly. (CO)Do not be wise in your own estimation. 17 (CP)Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. [ac](CQ)Respect what is right in the sight of all men. 18 If possible, (CR)so far as it depends on you, (CS)be at peace with all men. 19 (CT)Never take your own revenge, beloved, but [ad]leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “(CU)Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 (CV)But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Be Subject to Government

13 Every [ae](CW)person is to be in (CX)subjection to the governing authorities. For (CY)there is no authority except [af]from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore [ag]whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. For (CZ)rulers are not a cause of fear for [ah]good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an (DA)avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also (DB)for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. (DC)Render to all what is due them: (DD)tax to whom tax is due; (DE)custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.

Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for (DF)he who loves [ai]his neighbor has fulfilled the law. For this, “(DG)You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “(DH)You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love [aj]does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore (DI)love is the fulfillment of the law.

11 Do this, knowing the time, that it is (DJ)already the hour for you to (DK)awaken from sleep; for now [ak]salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. 12 (DL)The night is almost gone, and (DM)the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside (DN)the deeds of darkness and put on (DO)the armor of light. 13 Let us [al](DP)behave properly as in the day, (DQ)not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. 14 But (DR)put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh (DS)in regard to its lusts.
