Romans 9:12-22 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
12 it was said to her, "1THE OLDER WILL SERVE THE YOUNGER." 13 Just as it is written, "2JACOB I LOVED, BUT ESAU I HATED." 14 3What shall we say then? 4There is no injustice with God, is there? 5May it never be! 15 For He says to Moses, "6I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHOM I HAVE MERCY, AND I WILL HAVE COMPASSION ON WHOM I HAVE COMPASSION." 16 So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who 7runs, but on 8God who has mercy. 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "9FOR THIS VERY PURPOSE I RAISED YOU UP, TO DEMONSTRATE MY POWER IN YOU, AND THAT MY NAME MIGHT BE PROCLAIMED aTHROUGHOUT THE WHOLE EARTH." 18 So then He has mercy on whom He desires, and He 10hardens whom He desires. 19 11You will say to me then, "12Why does He still find fault? For 13who resists His will?" 20 On the contrary, who are you, 14O man, who 15answers back to God? 16The thing molded will not say to the molder, "Why did you make me like this," will it? 21 Or does not the potter have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel bfor honorable use and another cfor common use? 22 dWhat if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much 17patience vessels of wrath 18prepared for destruction?
