Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 I ask then, Did God reject his people? May it never be! For I also am an Yisra'elite, a descendant of Avraham, of the tribe of Binyamin. 1 I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin.
2 God didn't reject his people, which he foreknew. Or don't you know what the Scripture says about Eliyah? How he pleads with God against Yisra'el: 2 God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don't you know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah--how he appealed to God against Israel:
3 "Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have broken down your altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life." 3 "Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me" ?
4 But how does God answer him? "I have reserved for myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Ba`al." 4 And what was God's answer to him? "I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal."
5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace.
6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
7 What then? That which Yisra'el seeks for, that he didn't obtain, but the election obtained it, and the rest were hardened. 7 What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened,
8 According as it is written, "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear, to this very day." 8 as it is written: "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes so that they could not see and ears so that they could not hear, to this very day."
9 David says, "Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, A stumbling block, and a retribution to them. 9 And David says: "May their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them.
10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see. Bow down their back always." 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever."
11 I ask then, did they stumble that they might fall? May it never be! But by their fall salvation has come to the Goyim, to provoke them to jealousy. 11 Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious.
12 Now if their fall is the riches of the world, and their loss the riches of the Goyim; how much more their fullness? 12 But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring!
13 For I speak to you who are Goyim. Since then as I am an apostle to Goyim, I glorify my ministry; 13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry
14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh, and may save some of them. 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them.
15 For if the rejection of them is the reconciling of the world, what would the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? 15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
16 If the first fruit is holy, so is the lump. If the root is holy, so are the branches. 16 If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.
17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them, and became partaker with them of the root of the richness of the olive tree; 17 If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root,
18 don't boast over the branches. But if you boast, it is not you who bear the root, but the root you. 18 do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in." 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in."
20 True; by their unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by your faith. Don't be conceited, but fear; 20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.
21 for if God didn't spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.
22 See then the goodness and severity of God. Toward those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness; otherwise you also will be cut off. 22 Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.
23 They also, if they don't continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 23 And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For if you were cut out of that which is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more will these, which are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 24 After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!
25 For I don't desire, brothers, to have you ignorant of this mystery, so that you won't be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening in part has happened to Yisra'el, until the fullness of the Goyim has come in, 25 I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.
26 and so all Yisra'el will be saved. Even as it is written, "There will come out of Tziyon the Deliverer, And he will turn away ungodliness from Ya`akov. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
27 This is my covenant to them, When I will take away their sins." 27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins."
28 Concerning the Good News, they are enemies for your sake. But concerning the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sake. 28 As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies on your account; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs,
29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable.
30 For as you in time past were disobedient to God, but now have obtained mercy by their disobedience, 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience,
31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that by the mercy shown to you they may also obtain mercy. 31 so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now receive mercy as a result of God's mercy to you.
32 For God has shut up all to disobedience, that he might have mercy on all. 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.
33 Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out! 33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
34 "For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?"
35 "Or who has first given to him, And it will be repaid to him again?" 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?"
36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things. To him be the glory for ever! Amein. 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
