Romans 11

DBY 1 I say then, Has God cast away his people? Far be the thought. 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. DBY 2 God has not cast away his people whom he foreknew. Know ye not what the scripture says in [the history of] Elias, how 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: DBY 3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have dug down thine altars; and *I* have been 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" ? DBY 4 But what says the divine answer to him? I have left to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed 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." DBY 5 Thus, then, in the present time also there has been a remnant according to election of grace. NIV 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. DBY 6 But if by grace, no longer of works: since [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. DBY 7 What [is it] then? What Israel seeks for, that he has not obtained; but the election has obtained, and the rest have been blinded, NIV 7 What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened, DBY 8 according as it is written, God has given to them a spirit of slumber, eyes not to see, and ears not to hear, unto this 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." DBY 9 And David says, Let their table be for a snare, and for a gin, and for a fall-trap, and for a recompense to them: NIV 9 And David says: "May their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them. DBY 10 let their eyes be darkened not to see, and bow down their back alway. NIV 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever." DBY 11 I say then, Have they stumbled in order that they might fall? Far be the thought: but by their fall [there is] salvation to the nations 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. DBY 12 But if their fall [be the] world's wealth, and their loss [the] wealth of [the] nations, how much rather 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! DBY 13 For I speak to you, the nations, inasmuch as *I* am apostle of nations, 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 DBY 14 if by any means I shall provoke to jealousy [them which are] my flesh, and shall save some from among them. NIV 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. DBY 15 For if their casting away [be the] world's reconciliation, what [their] reception but life from among [the] dead? NIV 15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? DBY 16 Now if the first-fruit [be] holy, the lump also; and if the root [be] holy, the branches also. 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. DBY 17 Now if some of the branches have been broken out, and *thou*, being a wild olive tree, hast been grafted in amongst them, and hast become a fellow-partaker of the root and 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, DBY 18 boast not against the branches; but if thou boast, [it is] not *thou* 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. DBY 19 Thou wilt say then, The branches have been broken out in order that *I* might be grafted in. NIV 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." DBY 20 Right: they have been broken out through unbelief, and *thou* standest through faith. Be not high-minded, 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. DBY 21 if God indeed has not spared the natural branches; lest it might be he spare not thee either. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. DBY 22 Behold then [the] goodness and severity of God: upon them who have fallen, severity; upon thee goodness of God, if thou shalt abide in goodness, since [otherwise] *thou* also wilt be cut away. 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. DBY 23 And *they* too, if they abide not in unbelief, shall be grafted in; for God is able again to graft them in. NIV 23 And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. DBY 24 For if *thou* hast been cut out of the olive tree wild by nature, and, contrary to nature, hast been grafted into the good olive tree, how much rather shall they, who are according to nature 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! DBY 25 For I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, of this mystery, that ye may not be wise in your own conceits, that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the nations 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. DBY 26 and so all Israel shall be saved. According as it is written, The deliverer shall come out of Zion; 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. DBY 27 And this is the covenant from me to them, when I shall have taken away their sins. NIV 27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." DBY 28 As regards the glad tidings, [they are] enemies on your account; but as regards election, beloved on account of the fathers. 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, DBY 29 For the gifts and the calling of God [are] not subject to repentance. NIV 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. DBY 30 For as indeed *ye* [also] once have not believed in God, but now have been objects of mercy through the unbelief of *these*; NIV 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, DBY 31 so these also have now not believed in your mercy, in order that *they* also may be objects of 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. DBY 32 For God hath shut up together all in unbelief, in order that he might shew mercy to all. NIV 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. DBY 33 O depth of riches both of [the] wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable his judgments, and untraceable his ways! 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! DBY 34 For who has known [the] mind of [the] Lord, or who has been his counsellor? NIV 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" DBY 35 or who has first given to him, and it shall be rendered to him? NIV 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?" DBY 36 For of him, and through him, and for him [are] all things: to him be 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.
