Romans 11

LEB 1 Therefore I say, God has not rejected his people, has he? May it never be! For I also am an Israelite, from the descendants 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. LEB 2 God has not rejected his people, whom he foreknew! Or do you not know, in [the passage about] Elijah, what the scripture says--how he appeals to 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: LEB 3 "Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have torn down your altars, and I alone am left, and they are seeking 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" ? LEB 4 But what does the divine response say to him? "I have left for myself seven thousand people who have not bent 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." LEB 5 So in this way also at the present time, there is a remnant {selected by grace}. NIV 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. LEB 6 But if by grace, [it is] no longer by works, for otherwise grace would no longer be grace. NIV 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. LEB 7 What then? What Israel was searching for, this it did not obtain. But the elect 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, LEB 8 just as it is written, "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that do not see and ears that do not hear, until this very day."<note: A quotation from Deut 29:4; Isa 29:10> 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." LEB 9 And David says, "Let their table become a snare and a trap, and a cause for stumbling and a retribution to them; NIV 9 And David says: "May their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them. LEB 10 let their eyes be darkened so that they do not see, and cause their backs to bend {continually}." NIV 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever." LEB 11 I say then, they did not stumble so that they fell, [did they]? May it never be! But by their trespass, salvation [has come] to the Gentiles, in order 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. LEB 12 And if their trespass [means] riches for the world and their loss [means] riches for the Gentiles, how much more [will] their fullness [mean]? 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! LEB 13 Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Therefore, inasmuch as I am apostle to the Gentiles, I promote 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 LEB 14 if somehow I may provoke my people to jealousy 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. LEB 15 For if their rejection [means] the reconciliation of the world, what [will] their acceptance [mean] except 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? LEB 16 Now if the first fruits [are] holy, [so] also [is] the [whole] batch of dough, and if the root [is] holy, [so] also [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. LEB 17 Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, [although you] were a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them and became a sharer of the root of the olive tree's richness, 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, LEB 18 do not boast against the branches. But if you boast against [them], you do not support the root, but the root [supports] 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. LEB 19 Then you will say, "Branches were broken off in order that I could be grafted in." NIV 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." LEB 20 Well said! They were broken off because of unbelief, but you stand firm because of faith. Do not think arrogant [thoughts], but 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. LEB 21 For if God did not spare the {natural} branches, neither will he spare you. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. LEB 22 See, then, the kindness and severity of God: severity upon those who have fallen, but upon you the kindness of God--if you continue in his kindness, for otherwise you also will 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. LEB 23 And those also, if they do not persist in unbelief, will be grafted in, 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. LEB 24 For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are {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! LEB 25 For I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, of this mystery, so that you will not be wise {in your own sight}, that a partial hardening has happened to Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles has 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. LEB 26 and so all Israel will be saved, just as it is written, "The deliverer will come out of Zion; he will 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. LEB 27 And this [is] the covenant from me with them when I take away their sins." NIV 27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." LEB 28 With respect to the gospel, [they are] enemies for your sake, but with respect to election, [they are] dearly loved for the sake 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, LEB 29 For the gifts and the calling of God [are] irrevocable. NIV 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. LEB 30 For just as you formerly were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of the disobedience 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, LEB 31 so also these have now been disobedient for your mercy, in order that they also may now be shown 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. LEB 32 For God confined them all in disobedience, in order that he could have mercy on them all. NIV 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. LEB 33 Oh, the depth of the riches and the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable [are] his judgments and [how] incomprehensible [are] 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! LEB 34 "For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? NIV 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" LEB 35 Or who has given in advance to him, and it will be paid back to him?" NIV 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?" LEB 36 For from him and through him and to him [are] all [things]. To him [be] glory for eternity! Amen. NIV 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
