Romans 11

WYC 1 Therefore I say, Whether God hath put away his people? God forbid [Far be it]. For [and] I am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the lineage 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. WYC 2 God hath not put away his people, which he before-knew. Whether ye know not [Whether ye witen not], what the scripture saith in Elias? How he prayeth 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: WYC 3 Lord, they have slain thy prophets, they have under-delved 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" ? WYC 4 But what saith God's answer to him? I have left to me seven thousands of men [I have left to me seven thousand of men], that have not bowed their knees before 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." WYC 5 So therefore also in this time, the remnants [the reliefs] be made safe, by the choosing [after the choosing] of the grace of God. NIV 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. WYC 6 And if it be by the grace of God, it is not now of works; else grace is not now grace. NIV 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. WYC 7 What then? Israel hath not gotten this that he sought [Israel hath not gotten that that he sought], but election hath gotten; and the others be blinded. NIV 7 What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened, WYC 8 As it is written, God gave to them a spirit of compunction, eyes that they see not, and ears, that they hear not, into 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." WYC 9 And David saith, Be the board of them made into a snare before them, and into catching, and into cause of stumbling, and into yielding to them [and into catching, and into offence, and into yielding again to them]. NIV 9 And David says: "May their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them. WYC 10 Be the eyes of them made dark, that they see not; and bow thou down always the back of them [and bow down all-gates the back of them]. NIV 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever." WYC 11 Therefore I say, Whether they offended so, that they should fall down? God forbid [Far be it]. But by the guilt of them health is made to heathen men, that they follow them. 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. WYC 12 That if the guilt of them be riches of the world, and the making less of them be riches of heathen men [and the diminishing, or making less, of them be riches of heathen men], how much more the plenty of them? 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! WYC 13 But I say to you [Soothly I say to you], heathen men, for as long as I am apostle of heathen men, I shall honour my ministry [I shall honour my ministry, or service], NIV 13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry WYC 14 if in any manner I stir my flesh for to follow, and that I make some of them safe. [if on any manner I stir my flesh to follow, and I make some of them safe.] NIV 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. WYC 15 For if the loss of them is the reconciling of the world, what is the taking up [of them], but life of dead men [but life of dead]? NIV 15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? WYC 16 For if a little part of that that is tasted be holy, the whole gobbet is holy; and if the root is holy, also 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. WYC 17 What if any of the branches be broken, when thou were a wild olive tree, art grafted among them, and art made fellow of the root, and of the fatness of the olive tree, [That if any of the branches be broken, thou soothly, when thou were a wild olive tree, wert set in among them, and wert made fellow of the root, and of 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, WYC 18 do not thou have glory against the branches [do not thou glory against the branches]. For if thou gloriest, 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. WYC 19 Therefore thou sayest, The branches be broken, that I be grafted in [that I be inset]. NIV 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." WYC 20 Well, for unbelief the branches be broken; but thou standest by faith. Do not thou understand high things [Do not thou savour high thing], but dread thou, NIV 20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. WYC 21 for if God spared not the natural branches, [see thou] lest peradventure he spare not thee. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. WYC 22 Therefore see the goodness, and the fierceness of God; yea, the fierceness into them that fell down, but the goodness of God into thee, if thou dwellest in goodness [if thou shalt dwell in goodness], else also thou shalt be cut down. 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. WYC 23 Yea, and they shall be set in, if they dwell not in unbelief. For God is mighty, to set them in again. [But, and they shall be inset, if they shall not dwell in unbelief. Forsooth God is mighty, again to inset them.] NIV 23 And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. WYC 24 For if thou art cut down of the natural wild olive tree, and against kind art set into a good olive tree, how much more they that be by kind, shall be set in their olive tree? [+For if thou wert cut down of the natural wild olive tree, and against kind wert inset into a good olive tree, how much more they that be by kind, shall be inset into their 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! WYC 25 But, brethren, I will not that ye not know this mystery, that ye be not wise to yourselves; for blindness hath fallen a part in Israel, till that the plenty of heathen men entered, [Forsooth, brethren, I will not that ye unknow this mystery, that ye be not wise to yourselves; for blindness hath felled of part in Israel, till the plenty of heathen men entered,] 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. WYC 26 and so all Israel should be made safe. As it is written, He shall come of Sion, that shall deliver, and turn away the wickedness of Jacob [and turn away the unpiety of 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. WYC 27 And this testament to them of me, when I shall do away their sins. NIV 27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." WYC 28 After the gospel they be enemies for you, but they be most dear-worthy by the election [after the election] for 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, WYC 29 And the gifts and the calling of God be without repenting. [Soothly the gifts and calling of God be without repenting.] NIV 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. WYC 30 And as sometime also ye believed not to God, but now ye have gotten mercy for the unbelief of them; NIV 30 Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, WYC 31 so and these now believed not into your mercy [so and these now believed not to your mercy], that also they get 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. WYC 32 For God closed all things together in unbelief [Forsooth God closed together all things in unbelief], that he have mercy on all. NIV 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. WYC 33 O! the highness of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowing of God; how incomprehensible be his dooms, and his ways be unsearchable. [O! the depth of the riches of wisdom and knowing of God; how incomprehensible be his dooms, and his ways unsearchable.] 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! WYC 34 For why who knew the wit of the Lord, or who was his counsellor? NIV 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" WYC 35 or who former gave to him, and it shall be requited [again] to him? NIV 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?" WYC 36 For of him, and by him, and in him be all things. To him be glory into worlds [of worlds]. Amen. NIV 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
