Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
11 I say then: Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid! But rather, through their fall salvation has come unto the Gentiles 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 the fall of them be the riches of the world and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles, 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 Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my office, 13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry
14 that by any means I may provoke to emulation those who are my flesh, and might 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 casting away of them be the reconciling 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, the whole lump is also holy; 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 off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and 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 Thou sayest well! Because of unbelief they were broken off, and 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 spared not the natural branches, take heed lest He also spare not thee. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.
22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in His 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 wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more shall 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!
