Romans 11

YLT 1 I say, then, Did God cast away His people? let it not be! 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. YLT 2 God did not cast away His people whom He knew before; have ye not known -- in Elijah -- what the Writing saith? how he doth plead with God concerning 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: YLT 3 `Lord, Thy prophets they did kill, and Thy altars they dug down, and I was 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" ? YLT 4 but what saith the divine answer to him? `I left to Myself seven thousand men, who did not bow a 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." YLT 5 So then also in the present time a remnant according to the choice of grace there hath been; NIV 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. YLT 6 and if by grace, no more of works, otherwise the grace becometh no more grace; and if of works, it is no more grace, otherwise the work is no more work. NIV 6 And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace. YLT 7 What then? What Israel doth seek after, this it did not obtain, and the chosen did obtain, 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, YLT 8 according as it hath been written, `God gave to them a spirit of deep sleep, eyes not to see, and ears not to hear,' -- unto 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." YLT 9 and David saith, `Let their table become for a snare, and for a trap, and for a stumbling-block, 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. YLT 10 let their eyes be darkened -- not to behold, and their back do Thou always bow down.' NIV 10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever." YLT 11 I say, then, Did they stumble that they might fall? let it not be! but by their fall the salvation [is] to the nations, to arouse 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. YLT 12 and if the fall of them [is] the riches of a world, and the diminution of them the riches of nations, how much more the fulness 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! YLT 13 For to you I speak -- to the nations -- inasmuch as I am indeed an apostle of nations, my ministration I do glorify; NIV 13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry YLT 14 if by any means I shall arouse to jealousy mine own flesh, and shall save some of them, NIV 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. YLT 15 for if the casting away of them [is] a reconciliation of the world, what the reception -- if not life out of the dead? NIV 15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? YLT 16 and if the first-fruit [is] holy, the lump also; and if the root [is] 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. YLT 17 And if certain of the branches were broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wast graffed in among them, and a fellow-partaker of the root and of the fatness of the olive tree didst become -- 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, YLT 18 do not boast against the branches; and if thou dost boast, thou dost not bear 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. YLT 19 Thou wilt say, then, `The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in;' right! NIV 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." YLT 20 by unbelief they were broken off, and thou hast stood by faith; be not high-minded, but be fearing; NIV 20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. YLT 21 for if God the natural branches did not spare -- lest perhaps He also shall not spare thee. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. YLT 22 Lo, then, goodness and severity of God -- upon those indeed who fell, severity; and upon thee, goodness, if thou mayest remain in the 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. YLT 23 And those also, if they may not remain in unbelief, shall be graffed in, for God is able again to graff 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. YLT 24 for if thou, out of the olive tree, wild by nature, wast cut out, and, contrary to nature, wast graffed into a good olive tree, how much rather shall they, who [are] according to nature, be graffed 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! YLT 25 For I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, of this secret -- that ye may not be wise in your own conceits -- that hardness in part to Israel hath happened till the fulness of the nations may 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. YLT 26 and so all Israel shall be saved, according as it hath been written, `There shall come forth out of Sion he who is delivering, and he shall turn away impiety 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. YLT 27 and this to them [is] the covenant from Me, when I may take away their sins.' NIV 27 And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins." YLT 28 As regards, indeed, the good tidings, [they are] enemies on your account; and as regards the choice -- 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, YLT 29 for unrepented of [are] the gifts and the calling of God; NIV 29 for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. YLT 30 for as ye also once did not believe in God, and now did find kindness by 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, YLT 31 so also these now did not believe, that in your kindness they also may find kindness; 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. YLT 32 for God did shut up together the whole to unbelief, that to the whole He might do kindness. NIV 32 For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. YLT 33 O depth of riches, and 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! YLT 34 for who did know the mind of the Lord? or who did become His counsellor? NIV 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?" YLT 35 or who did first give to Him, and it shall be given back to him again? NIV 35 "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?" YLT 36 because of Him, and through Him, and to Him [are] the all things; to Him [is] the glory -- to the ages. Amen. NIV 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
