Romans 11:11-24

BBE 11 So I say, Were their steps made hard in order that they might have a fall? In no way: but by their fall salvation has come to the Gentiles, so that they might be moved to envy. 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. BBE 12 Now, if their fall is the wealth of the world, and their loss the wealth of the Gentiles, how much greater will be the glory when they are made full? 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! BBE 13 But I say to you, Gentiles, in so far as I am the Apostle of the Gentiles, I make much of my position: NIV 13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry BBE 14 If in any way those who are of my flesh may be moved to envy, so that some of them may get salvation by me. NIV 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. BBE 15 For, if by their putting away, the rest of men have been made friends with God, what will their coming back again 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? BBE 16 And if the first-fruit is holy, so is the mass: 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. BBE 17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, an olive-tree of the fields, were put in among them, and were given a part with them in the root by which the olive-tree is made fertile, 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, BBE 18 Do not be uplifted in pride over the branches: because it is not you who are the support of the root, but it is by the root that you are supported. NIV 18 do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. BBE 19 You will say, Branches were broken off so that I might be put in. NIV 19 You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." BBE 20 Truly, because they had no faith they were broken off, and you have your place by reason of your faith. Do not be lifted up in pride, but have fear; NIV 20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. BBE 21 For, if God did not have mercy on the natural branches, he will not have mercy on you. NIV 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. BBE 22 See then that God is good but his rules are fixed: to those who were put away he was hard, but to you he has been good, on the condition that you keep in his mercy; if not, you will be cut off as they were. 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. BBE 23 And they, if they do not go on without faith, will be united to the tree again, because God is able to put 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. BBE 24 For if you were cut out of a field olive-tree, and against the natural use were united to a good olive-tree, how much more will these, the natural branches, be united again with the olive-tree which was theirs? 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!
