So that you will not be conceited, brothers, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery: a partial hardening has come to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.
And in this way alla Israel will be saved, as it is written: The Liberator will come from Zion; He will turn away godlessness from Jacob.
And this will be My covenant with them, b when I take away their sins. c28
Regarding the gospel, they are enemies for your advantage, but regarding election, they are loved because of their forefathers,

As you once disobeyed God, but now have received mercy through their disobedience,
so they too have now disobeyed, [resulting] in mercy to you, so that they also nowe may receive mercy.
For God has imprisoned all in disobedience, so that He may have mercy on all.
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments and untraceable His ways!
For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been His counselor?
Or who has ever first given to Him, and has to be repaid? f36
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.
