Romans 9:8
That is, they who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; rather, the children of the promise are counted as the seed.
That is, it is not the children of the flesh that are children of God; but the children of the promise are reckoned for a seed.
That is, it is not the children of the body [Abraham’s natural descendants] who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are counted as [Abraham’s true] descendants.
That is to say, it is not the children of the body [of Abraham] who are made God’s children, but it is the offspring to whom the promise applies that shall be counted [as Abraham’s true] descendants.
That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
That means it isn’t the natural children who are God’s children, but it is the children from the promise who are counted as descendants.
In other words, it is not the physical children who are children of God, but the children the promise refers to who are considered seed.
In fact, when God made the promise to Abraham, he meant only Abraham’s descendants by his son Isaac. God was talking only about Isaac when he promised
That is, [they that are] the children of the flesh, these [are] not the children of God; but the children of the promise are reckoned as seed.
That is, these children of the flesh are not children of God, but the children of  the promise are counted for seed.
That is to say, not they that are the children of the flesh, are the children of God; but they, that are the children of the promise, are accounted for the seed.
This means that not all of Abraham’s descendants are God’s true children. Abraham’s true children are those who become God’s children because of the promise he made to Abraham.
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring.
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring.
This means that ·not all of Abraham’s descendants [L it is not the children of the flesh who] are God’s true children. [L But; Rather] ·Abraham’s true children [L Those counted as Abraham’s descendants/seed] are ·those who become God’s children because of the promise God made to Abraham [L the children of the promise].
That is, they which are the children of the flesh, are not the children of God: but the children of the promise, are counted for the seed.
This means that children born by natural descent from Abraham are not necessarily God’s children. Instead, children born by the promise are considered Abraham’s descendants.
This means that the children born in the usual way are not the children of God; instead, the children born as a result of God's promise are regarded as the true descendants.
That is, it is not the children by physical descent who are God’s children, but the children of the promise are considered to be the offspring.
This means that not all of Abraham’s descendants are God’s true children. Abraham’s true children are those who become God’s children because of the promise God made to Abraham.
That is, it is not merely the children born through natural descent who were regarded as God’s children, but it is the children born through the promise who were regarded as descendants.
That means that it is not the natural descendants who automatically inherit the promise, but, on the contrary, that the children of the promise (i.e. sons of God) are to be considered truly Abraham’s children. For it was a promise when God said: ‘At this time I will come and Sarah shall have a son’. (Everybody, remember, thought it quite impossible for Sarah to have a child.) And then, again, a word of promise came to Rebecca, at the time when she was pregnant with two children by the one man, Isaac our forefather. It came before the children were born or had done anything good or bad, plainly showing that God’s act of choice has nothing to do with achievements, good or bad, but is entirely a matter of his will. The promise was: ‘The older shall serve the younger’.
That is, Those who are sons of the flesh, these are not the sons of God; but those who are sons of the promise are counted in the generation.
That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
That is, it is not the children by human descent who are children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
This means that not all of Abraham’s children are children of God, but only those who believe the promise of salvation which he made to Abraham.
Don’t suppose for a moment, though, that God’s Word has malfunctioned in some way or other. The problem goes back a long way. From the outset, not all Israelites of the flesh were Israelites of the spirit. It wasn’t Abraham’s sperm that gave identity here, but God’s promise. Remember how it was put: “Your family will be defined by Isaac”? That means that Israelite identity was never racially determined by sexual transmission, but it was God-determined by promise. Remember that promise, “When I come back next year at this time, Sarah will have a son”?
So those who are the children of the flesh are not the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
This means it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
This means that children born by natural descent from Abraham are not necessarily God’s children. Instead, children born by the promise are considered Abraham’s descendants.
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are regarded as descendants.
This means that not all of Abraham’s descendants are God’s true children. Abraham’s true children are those who become God’s children because of the promise God made to Abraham.
This means it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God; rather, the children of promise are counted as descendants.
In other words, God’s children are not just in the family line of Abraham. Instead, they are the children God promised to him. They are the ones considered to be Abraham’s children.
In other words, it is not the children by physical descent who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring.
In other words, it is not the children by physical descent who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring.
That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.
This means that children born to Abraham are not all children of God. Only those that are born because of God’s promise to Abraham are His children.
This means that Abraham’s physical descendants are not necessarily children of God. Only the children of the promise are considered to be Abraham’s children.
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as descendants.
That is, it is not the b’nei habasar (old humanity without hitkhadshut) who are the b’nei HaElohim (children of G-d) but the b’nei HaHavtachah (children of the promise) who are reckoned as ZERA (seed, children, including the right of the heir in relation to the father).
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are reckoned as descendants.
This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are reckoned as descendants.
That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God; rather, the children of the promise are counted as seed.
The proper interpretation is this: Abraham’s children by natural descent are not necessarily God’s covenant people; what matters is that His children receive and live the promise.
That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as heirs.
For this is what God promised, `About this time next year I will come and Sarah shall have a son.'
that is to say, not they that be sons of the flesh, be sons of God, but they that be sons of [the] promise be deemed in the seed.
that is, the children of the flesh -- these [are] not children of God; but the children of the promise are reckoned for seed;
