Romans 9:24-33 (New American Standard)

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