Romans 9:4-8 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 the people of Israel.1 Theirs is the adoption as sons;2 theirs the divine glory,3 the covenants,4 the receiving of the law,5 the temple worship6 and the promises.7 5 Theirs are the patriarchs,8 and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ,9 who is God over all,10 forever praised!a11 Amen. 6 It is not as though God's word12 had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel.13 7 Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham's children. On the contrary, "It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned."b14 8 In other words, it is not the natural children who are God's children,15 but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham's offspring.16
