PAUL TO THE ROMANS
9:1 The truth am I telling in Christ, I am not lying,
my conscience testifying together with me in holy spirit, 2 That my
sorrow is great, and unintermittent pain is in my heart 3 for I
myself wished to be anathema from Christ for my brethren, my relatives according to
the flesh, 4 who are Israelites, whose is the sonship and the glory and
the covenants and the legislation and the divine service and the promises; 5
whose are the fathers, and out of whom is the Christ according to the flesh, Who is over
all, God be blessed for the eons. Amen!
6 Now it is not such as that
the word of God has lapsed, for not all those out of Israel, these are Israel; 7
neither that Abrahams seed are all children, but In Isaac shall your seed be
called. 8 That is, that the children of the flesh, not these are
the children of God, but the children of the promise is He reckoning for the seed.
9 For the word of the promise
is this: At this season I shall come and there will be for Sarah a
son. 10 Yet, not only so, but Rebecca also is having her bed of
one, Isaac, our father. 11 For, not as yet being born, nor putting into
practice anything good or bad, that the purpose of God may be remaining as a choice, not
out of acts, but of Him Who is calling, 12 it was declared to her that
The greater shall be slaving for the inferior, 13 According
as it is written, Jacob I love, yet Esau I hate.
14 What, then, shall we be
declaring? Not that there is injustice with God? May it not be coming to that! 15
For to Moses He is saying, I shall be merciful to whomever I may be merciful, and I
shall be pitying whomever I may be pitying. 16 Consequently, then,
it is not of him who is willing, nor of him who is racing, but of God, the Merciful. 17
For the scripture is saying to Pharaoh that For this selfsame thing I rouse you up,
so that I should be displaying in you My power, and so that My name should be published in
the entire earth. 18 Consequently, then, to whom He will, He is
merciful, yet whom He will, He is hardening.
19 You will be protesting to
me, then, Why, then, is He still blaming? for who has withstood His intention?
20 O man! who are you, to be sure, who are answering again to God? That
which is molded will not protest to the molder, Why do you make me thus? 21
Or has not the potter the right over the clay, out of the same kneading to make one
vessel, indeed, for honor, yet one for dishonor? 22 Now if God, wanting
to display His indignation and to make His powerful doings known, carries, with much
patience, the vessels of indignation, adapted for destruction, 23 it is
that He should also be making known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which
He makes ready before for glory 24 us, whom He calls also, not
only out of the Jews, but out of the nations also. 25 As He is saying in
I shall be calling those who are
not My people My people,
And she who is not beloved
26 And it shall be, in the place where
it was declared to them,
Not My people are
There they shall be called
sons of the living God.
27 Now Isaiah is crying over
Israel, If the number of the sons of Israel should be as the sand of the sea, the residue
shall be saved, 28 for a conclusive and concise accounting the Lord
will be doing on the earth.
29 And according as Isaiah
Except the Lord of hosts
conserved us a seed,
As Sodom would we become,
And to Gomorrah would we be
30 What, then, shall we be declaring? That the nations
who are not pursuing righteousness overtook righteousness, yet a righteousness which is
out of faith. 31 Yet Israel, pursuing a law of righteousness, into a law
of righteousness does not outstrip. 32 Wherefore? Seeing that it is not
out of faith, but as out of law works, they stumble on the stumbling stone, 33 according
as it is written:
Lo! I am laying in Zion a Stumbling
and a Snare Rock,
And the one believing on Him shall
not be disgraced.
