12Nowif their transgression is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, howmuchmore will their a1fulfillment be!
But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuchthen as 2I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,
14ifsomehow I might 3move to jealousy4my bfellowcountrymen and 5savesome of them.
For if their rejection is the 6reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but 7life from the dead?
16If the 8firstpiece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too.
But ifsome of the 9branches were brokenoff, and 10you, being a wildolive, were grafted in among them and becamepartaker with them of the crichroot of the olivetree,
do not be arroganttoward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that 11it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you.
1912You will saythen, "Branches were brokenoffso that I might be grafted in."
20Quiteright, they were brokenoff for their unbelief, but you 13stand by your faith. 14Do not be conceited , but fear;
for ifGod did not spare the naturalbranches, He will not spare you, either.
22Beholdthen the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God's15kindness, 16if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also17will be cutoff.
