Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 I say then: Hath God cast away his people? God forbid! For I also am an Israelite of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 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 hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Know you not what the scripture saith of Elias, how he calleth on God against Israel? 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 slain thy prophets, they have dug down thy 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 what saith the divine answer to him? I have left me seven thousand men that have not bowed their knees to Baal. 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 saved 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, it is not now by works: otherwise grace is no more grace. 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 Israel sought, he hath not obtained: but the election hath obtained it. And the rest have been blinded. 7 What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened,
8 As it is written: God hath given them the spirit of insensibility; eyes that they should not see and ears that they should not hear, until this present 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 And David saith: Let their table be made a snare and a trap and a stumbling block and a recompense unto 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: and bow down their back always. 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever."
11 I say then: Have they so stumbled, that they should fall? God forbid! But by their offence salvation is come to the Gentiles, that they may be emulous of them. 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 the offence of them be the riches of the world and the diminution of them the riches of the Gentiles: how much more the fulness of them? 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 say to you, Gentiles: As long indeed as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I will honour 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 emulation them 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 loss of them be the reconciliation of the world, what shall 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 For if the firstfruit be holy, so is the lump also: and if the root be 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 And if some of the branches be broken and thou, being a wild olive, art ingrafted in them and art made partaker of the root and of the fatness 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 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root: but the root thee. 18 do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
19 Thou wilt say then: The 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 Well: because of unbelief they were broken off. But thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, 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 hath not spared the natural branches, fear lest perhaps also he spare not thee. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.
22 See then the goodness and the severity of God: towards them indeed that are fallen, the severity; but towards thee, the goodness of God, if thou abide in goodness. Otherwise thou also shalt 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 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall 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 thou were cut out of the wild olive tree, which is natural to thee; and, contrary to nature, wert grafted into the good olive tree: how much more shall they that 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 would not have you ignorant, brethren, of this mystery (lest you should be wise in your own conceits) that blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles should 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 Israel should be saved, as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, he that shall deliver and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob. 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 And this is to them my covenant: when I shall take away their sins. 27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins."
28 As concerning the gospel, indeed, they are enemies for your sake: but as touching the election, they are most dear for the sake of the fathers. 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 without repentance. 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable.
30 For as you also in times past did not believe God, but now have obtained mercy, through their unbelief: 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience,
31 So these also now have not believed, for your mercy, that they also may 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 hath concluded all in unbelief, that he may have mercy on all. 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.
33 O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are his judgments, and how unsearchable his ways! 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 hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counsellor? 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?"
35 Or who hath first given to him, and recompense shall be made him? 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?"
36 For of him, and by him, and in him, are all things: to him be glory for ever. Amen. 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
