Romans 11

NKJV 1 I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! 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. NKJV 2 God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying, 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: NKJV 3 "Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, 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" ? NKJV 4 But what does the divine response say to him? "I have reserved 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." NKJV 5 Even so then, at this present time 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. NKJV 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. NIV 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. NKJV 7 What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded. NIV 7 What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened, NKJV 8 Just as it is written: "God has given them a spirit of stupor, Eyes that they should not see And ears that they should not hear, To 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." NKJV 9 And David says: "Let their table become a snare and a trap, A stumbling block and 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. NKJV 10 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see, And bow down their back always." NIV 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever." NKJV 11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. 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. NKJV 12 Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! 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! NKJV 13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify 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 NKJV 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh 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. NKJV 15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance 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? NKJV 16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; 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. NKJV 17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and 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, NKJV 18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that 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. NKJV 19 You will 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." NKJV 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, 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. NKJV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. NKJV 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. 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. NKJV 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will 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. NKJV 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature 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! NKJV 25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness 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. NKJV 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And 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. NKJV 27 For 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." NKJV 28 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved 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, NKJV 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. NIV 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. NKJV 30 For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through 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, NKJV 31 even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may 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. NKJV 32 For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all. NIV 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. NKJV 33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding 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! NKJV 34 "For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?" NIV 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" NKJV 35 "Or who has first given to Him And it shall be repaid to him?" NIV 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?" NKJV 36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen. NIV 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
