Romans 11:1-10 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
1 I ask then, Has God cast off His People? No, indeed. Why, I myself am an Israelite, of the posterity of Abraham and of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not cast off His People whom He knew beforehand. Or are you ignorant of what Scripture says in speaking of Elijah--how he pleaded with God against Israel, saying, 3 "Lord, they have put Thy Prophets to death, and have overthrown Thy altars; and, now that I alone remain, they are thirsting for my blood"? 4 But what did God say to him in reply? "I have reserved for Myself 7,000 men who have never bent the knee to Baal." 5 In the same way also at the present time there has come to be a remnant whom God in His grace has selected. 6 But if it is in His grace that He has selected them, then His choice is no longer determined by human actions. Otherwise grace would be grace no longer. 7 How then does the matter stand? It stands thus. That which Israel are in earnest pursuit of, they have not obtained; but God's chosen servants have obtained it, and the rest have become hardened. 8 And so Scripture says, "God has given them a spirit of drowsiness--eyes to see nothing with and ears to hear nothing with--even until now." 9 And David says, "Let their very food become a snare and a trap to them, a stumbling-block and a retribution. 10 Let darkness come over their eyes that they may be unable to see, and make Thou their backs continually to stoop."
