16If the 1firstpiece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too.
But ifsome of the 2branches were brokenoff, and 3you, being a wildolive, were grafted in among them and becamepartaker with them of the arichroot of the olivetree,
do not be arroganttoward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that 4it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you.
195You will saythen, "Branches were brokenoffso that I might be grafted in."
20Quiteright, they were brokenoff for their unbelief, but you 6stand by your faith. 7Do 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's8kindness, 9if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also10will be cutoff.
And they also, 11if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
For if you were cutoff from what is by nature a wildolivetree, and were graftedcontrary to nature into a cultivatedolivetree, howmuchmore will thesewho are the natural branches be grafted into their ownolivetree?
For 12I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this13mystery-so that you will not be 14wise in your ownestimation -that a partial15hardening has happened to Israeluntil the 16fullness of the Gentiles has come in;
and soallIsrael will be saved; just as it is written, "17THE DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION, HE WILL REMOVEUNGODLINESS FROM JACOB."
