Romans 9:15-16; Romans 9:18; Romans 11:30-32; Romans 12:8
For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy , and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion .
So then it is not of him that willeth , nor of him that runneth , but of God that sheweth mercy .
Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth .
For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
Even so have these also now not believed , that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy .
For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
Or he that exhorteth , on exhortation: he that giveth , let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth , with diligence; he that sheweth mercy , with cheerfulness.
