Romans 11:1-10 (Third Millennium Bible)

View In My Bible
1 I ask then: Hath God cast away His people? God forbid! For I also am an Israelite of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God hath not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Know ye not what the Scripture saith of Elijah, how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, 3 "Lord, they have killed Thy prophets and torn down Thine altars, and I am left alone and they seek my life"? 4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? "I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal." 5 Even so then, at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it be by works, then it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. 7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded, 8 according as it is written: "God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear, unto this day." 9 And David saith, "Let their table be made a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a recompense unto them. 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their backs alway."
