Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I ask 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 whom He foreknew. Know ye not what the Scripture saith of Elijah, how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, 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 Thy prophets and torn down Thine 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 answer of God unto him? "I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of 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 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 by works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it be by works, then 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? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded, 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 hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear, unto this 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, 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 backs alway." 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever."
