Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, though a wild olive branch, were grafted in among them, and have come to share in the rich roota of the cultivated olive tree,
do not brag that you are better than those branches. But if you do brag-you do not sustain the root, but the root sustains you.
Then you will say, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in."
True enough; they were broken off by unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.
For if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you either.
Therefore, consider God's kindness and severity: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness toward you-if you remain in His kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off.
And even they, if they do not remain in unbelief, will be grafted in, because God has the power to graft them in again.
For if you were cut off from your native wild olive, and against nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these-the natural branches-be grafted into their own olive tree?
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 allb 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, c when I take away their sins. d
