View In My Bible
19 1You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in." 20 Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you 2stand by your faith. 3Do not be conceited , but fear; 21 for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. 22 Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God's 4kindness, 5if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also 6will be cut off. 23 And they also, 7if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree? 25 For 8I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this 9mystery -so that you will not be 10wise in your own estimation -that a partial 11hardening has happened to Israel until the 12fullness of the Gentiles has come in; 26 and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, "13THE DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION, HE WILL REMOVE UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB." 27 "14THIS IS aMY COVENANT WITH THEM, 15WHEN I TAKE AWAY THEIR SINS." 28 bFrom the standpoint of the gospel they are 16enemies for your sake, but cfrom the standpoint of God's choice they are beloved for 17the sake of the fathers; 29 for the gifts and the 18calling of God 19are irrevocable. 30 For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so these also now have been disobedient, that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy. 32 For 20God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all. 33 Oh, the depth of 21the riches dboth of the 22wisdom and knowledge of God! 23How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! 34 For 24WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, OR WHO BECAME HIS COUNSELOR? 35 Or 25WHO HAS FIRST GIVEN TO HIM eTHAT IT MIGHT BE PAID BACK TO HIM AGAIN? 36 For 26from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. 27To Him be the glory fforever. Amen.
