Romans 11

CEB 1 So I ask you, has God rejected his people? Absolutely not! I'm an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, from 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. CEB 2 God hasn't rejected his people, whom he knew in advance. Or don't you know what the scripture says in the case of Elijah, when he pleads 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: CEB 3 Lord, they have killed your prophets, and they have torn down your altars. I'm the only one left, and they are trying to take 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" ? CEB 4 But what is God's reply to him? I have kept for myself seven thousand people who haven't bowed their knees 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." CEB 5 So also in the present time there is a remaining group by the choice of God's grace. NIV 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. CEB 6 But if it is by grace, it isn't by what's done anymore. If it were, God's grace wouldn't be grace. NIV 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. CEB 7 So what? Israel didn't find what it was looking for. Those who were chosen found it, but the others were resistant. NIV 7 What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened, CEB 8 As it is written, God gave them a dull spirit, so that their eyes would not see and their ears not hear, right up until the present 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." CEB 9 And David says, Their table should become a pitfall and a trap, a stumbling block and payback to them for what they have done. NIV 9 And David says: "May their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them. CEB 10 Their eyes should be darkened so they can't see, and their backs always bent. NIV 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever." CEB 11 So I'm asking you: They haven't stumbled so that they've fallen permanently, have they? Absolutely not! But salvation has come to the Gentiles by their failure, in order to make Israel jealous. 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. CEB 12 But if their failure brings riches to the world, and their defeat brings riches to the Gentiles, how much more will come from the completion of their number! 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! CEB 13 I'm speaking to you Gentiles. Considering that I'm an apostle to the Gentiles, I publicize my own ministry NIV 13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry CEB 14 in the hope that somehow I might make my own people jealous and save some of them. NIV 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. CEB 15 If their rejection has brought about a close relationship between God and the world, how can their acceptance mean anything less than 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? CEB 16 But if part of a batch of dough is offered to God as holy, the whole batch of dough is holy too. If a root is holy, the branches will be holy too. 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. CEB 17 If some of the branches were broken off, and you were a wild olive branch, and you were grafted in among the other branches and shared the root that produces the rich oil 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, CEB 18 then don't brag like you're better than the other branches. If you do brag, be careful: it's not you that sustains the root, but it's the root that sustains you. NIV 18 do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. CEB 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." NIV 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." CEB 20 Fine. They were broken off because they weren't faithful, but you stand only by your faithfulness. So don't think in a proud way; instead be afraid. NIV 20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. CEB 21 If God didn't spare the natural branches, he won't spare you either. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. CEB 22 So look at God's kindness and harshness. It's harshness toward those who fell, but it's God's kindness for you, provided you continue in his kindness; otherwise, you could be cut off too. 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. CEB 23 And even those who were cut off will be grafted back in if they don't continue to be unfaithful, because 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. CEB 24 If you were naturally part of a wild olive tree and you were cut off from it, and then, contrary to nature, you were grafted into the cultivated olive tree, won't these natural branches stand an even better chance of being grafted back onto 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! CEB 25 I don't want you to be unaware of this secret, brothers and sisters. That way you won't think too highly of yourselves. A part of Israel has become resistant until the full number of the Gentiles comes 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. CEB 26 In this way, all Israel will be saved, as it is written: The deliverer will come from Zion. He will remove ungodly behavior 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. CEB 27 This is my covenant with them, when I take away their sins. NIV 27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." CEB 28 According to the gospel, they are enemies for your sake, but according to God's choice, they are loved for the sake of their ancestors. 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, CEB 29 God's gifts and calling can't be taken back. NIV 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. CEB 30 Once you were disobedient to God, but now you have mercy because they were disobedient. NIV 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, CEB 31 In the same way, they have also been disobedient because of the mercy that you received, so now they can receive mercy too. 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. CEB 32 God has locked up all people in disobedience, in order to have mercy on all of them. NIV 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. CEB 33 God's riches, wisdom, and knowledge are so deep! They are as mysterious as his judgments, and they are as hard to track as his paths! 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! CEB 34 Who has known the Lord's mind? Or who has been his mentor? NIV 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" CEB 35 Or who has given him a gift and has been paid back by him? NIV 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?" CEB 36 All things are from him and through him and for him. May the glory be to him forever. Amen. NIV 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
