Romans 9:23-33 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
23 And He did so to make known 1the riches of His glory upon 2vessels of mercy, which He 3prepared beforehand for glory, 24 even us, whom He also 4called, 5not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles. 25 As He says also in Hosea, "6I WILL CALL THOSE WHO WERE NOT MY PEOPLE, 'MY PEOPLE,' AND HER WHO WAS NOT BELOVED, 'BELOVED.' " 26 "7AND IT SHALL BE THAT IN THE PLACE WHERE IT WAS SAID TO THEM, 'YOU ARE NOT MY PEOPLE,' THERE THEY SHALL BE CALLED SONS OF 8THE LIVING GOD." 27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, "9THOUGH THE NUMBER OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL BE 10LIKE THE SAND OF THE SEA, IT IS 11THE REMNANT THAT WILL BE SAVED; 28 12FOR THE LORD WILL EXECUTE HIS WORD ON THE EARTH, aTHOROUGHLY AND bQUICKLY." 29 And just as Isaiah foretold, "13UNLESS 14THE LORD OF cSABAOTH HAD LEFT TO US A dPOSTERITY, 15WE WOULD HAVE BECOME LIKE SODOM, AND WOULD HAVE eRESEMBLED GOMORRAH." 30 16What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, attained righteousness, even 17the righteousness which is fby faith; 31 but Israel, 18pursuing a law of righteousness, did not 19arrive at that law. 32 Why ? Because they did not pursue it gby faith, but as though it were hby works. They stumbled over 20the stumbling stone, 33 just as it is written, "21BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION 22A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE, 23AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM 24WILL NOT BE iDISAPPOINTED."
