Romans 9:14-24 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
14 1What shall we say then? 2There is no injustice with God, is there? 3May it never be! 15 For He says to Moses, "4I 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 5runs, but on 6God who has mercy. 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "7FOR 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 8hardens whom He desires. 19 9You will say to me then, "10Why does He still find fault? For 11who resists His will?" 20 On the contrary, who are you, 12O man, who 13answers back to God? 14The 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 15patience vessels of wrath 16prepared for destruction? 23 And He did so to make known 17the riches of His glory upon 18vessels of mercy, which He 19prepared beforehand for glory, 24 even us, whom He also 20called, 21not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles.
