Romans 9:27-33 (New American Standard)

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