Romans 11

TMB 1 I ask then: Hath God cast away 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. TMB 2 God hath not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Know ye not what the Scripture saith of Elijah, how he maketh intercession to 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: TMB 3 "Lord, they have killed Thy prophets and torn 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" ? TMB 4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? "I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of 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." TMB 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. TMB 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it be by works, then 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. TMB 7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath 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, TMB 8 according as it is written: "God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not 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." TMB 9 And David saith, "Let their table be made a snare and a trap, a stumbling block 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. TMB 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their backs alway." NIV 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever." TMB 11 I say then: Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid! But rather, through their fall salvation has 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. TMB 12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world and the diminishing of them the riches of 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! TMB 13 For I speak to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my office, NIV 13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry TMB 14 that by any means I may provoke to emulation those who are my flesh, and might save some of them. NIV 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. TMB 15 For if the casting away of them be 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? TMB 16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the whole lump is also holy; and if the root be 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. TMB 17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest 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, TMB 18 boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not 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. TMB 19 Thou wilt say then, "The 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." TMB 20 Thou sayest well! Because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by 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. TMB 21 for if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest He also spare not thee. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. TMB 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward thee, 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. TMB 23 And they also, if they abide not still in 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. TMB 24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert 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! TMB 25 For I, brethren, would not have you be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits: that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness 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. TMB 26 And so all Israel shall be saved, as it is written: "There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and 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. TMB 27 For 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." TMB 28 Concerning the Gospel, they are enemies for your sake; but concerning the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. 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, TMB 29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. NIV 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. TMB 30 For as in times past ye have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief, NIV 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, TMB 31 even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy 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. TMB 32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, 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. TMB 33 O 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! TMB 34 "For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been His counselor?" NIV 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" TMB 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?" TMB 36 For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things, to whom 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.
