Romans 11

ASV 1 I say then, Did God cast off his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. NIV 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. ASV 2 God did not cast off his people which he foreknew. Or know ye not what the scripture saith of Elijah? how he pleadeth with God against Israel: NIV 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: ASV 3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. NIV 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" ? ASV 4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have left for myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal. NIV 4 And what was God's answer to him? "I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal." ASV 5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. NIV 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. ASV 6 But if it is by grace, it is no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. NIV 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. ASV 7 What then? that which Israel seeketh for, that he obtained not; but the election obtained it, and the rest were hardened: NIV 7 What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened, ASV 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, unto this very day. NIV 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." ASV 9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, And a stumblingblock, and a recompense unto them: NIV 9 And David says: "May their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them. ASV 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, And bow thou down their back always. NIV 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever." ASV 11 I say then, Did they stumble that they might fall? God forbid: but by their fall salvation [is come] unto the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. NIV 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. ASV 12 Now if their fall, is the riches of the world, and their loss the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? NIV 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! ASV 13 But I speak to you that are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I glorify my ministry; NIV 13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry ASV 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy [them that are] my flesh, and may save some of them. NIV 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. ASV 15 For if the casting away of them [is] the reconciling of the world, what [shall] the receiving [of them be], but life from the dead? NIV 15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? ASV 16 And if the firstfruit is holy, so is the lump: and if the root is holy, so are the branches. NIV 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. ASV 17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and thou, being a wild olive, wast grafted in among them, and didst become partaker with them of the root of the fatness of the olive tree; NIV 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, ASV 18 glory not over the branches: but if thou gloriest, it is not thou that bearest the root, but the root thee. NIV 18 do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. ASV 19 Thou wilt say then, Branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. NIV 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." ASV 20 Well; by their unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by thy faith. Be not highminded, but fear: NIV 20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. ASV 21 for if God spared not the natural branches, neither will he spare thee. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. ASV 22 Behold then the goodness and severity of God: toward them that fell, severity; but toward thee, God's goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. NIV 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. ASV 23 And they also, if they continue not in their unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. NIV 23 And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. ASV 24 For if thou wast cut out of that which is by nature a wild olive tree, and wast 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? NIV 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! ASV 25 For I would not, brethren, have you ignorant of this mystery, lest ye be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening in part hath befallen Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in; NIV 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. ASV 26 and so all Israel shall be saved: even as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer; He shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: NIV 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. ASV 27 And this is my covenant unto them, When I shall take away their sins. NIV 27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." ASV 28 As touching the gospel, they are enemies for your sake: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sake. NIV 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, ASV 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are not repented of. NIV 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. ASV 30 For as ye in time past were disobedient to God, but now have obtained mercy by their disobedience, NIV 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, ASV 31 even so have these also now been disobedient, that by the mercy shown to you they also may now obtain mercy. NIV 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. ASV 32 For God hath shut up all unto disobedience, that he might have mercy upon all. NIV 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. ASV 33 O 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! NIV 33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! ASV 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? NIV 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" ASV 35 or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? NIV 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?" ASV 36 For of him, and through him, and unto him, are all things. To him [be] the glory for ever. Amen. NIV 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
