Romans 9

WEB 1 I tell the truth in Christ. I am not lying, my conscience testifying with me in the Holy Spirit, NIV 1 I speak the truth in Christ--I am not lying, my conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit-- WEB 2 that I have great sorrow and unceasing pain in my heart. NIV 2 I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. WEB 3 For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brothers' sake, my relatives according to the flesh, NIV 3 For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race, WEB 4 who are Israelites; whose is the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service, and the promises; NIV 4 the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. WEB 5 whose are the fathers, and of whom is Christ as concerning the flesh, who is over all, God, blessed forever. Amen. NIV 5 Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen. WEB 6 But it is not as though the word of God has come to nothing. For they are not all Israel, that are of Israel. NIV 6 It is not as though God's word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel. WEB 7 Neither, because they are Abraham's seed, are they all children. But, "In Isaac will your seed be called." NIV 7 Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham's children. On the contrary, "It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned." WEB 8 That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as a seed. NIV 8 In other words, it is not the natural children who are God's children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham's offspring. WEB 9 For this is a word of promise, "At the appointed time I will come, and Sarah will have a son." NIV 9 For this was how the promise was stated: "At the appointed time I will return, and Sarah will have a son." WEB 10 Not only so, but Rebecca also conceived by one, by our father Isaac. NIV 10 Not only that, but Rebekah's children had one and the same father, our father Isaac. WEB 11 For being not yet born, neither having done anything good or bad, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him who calls, NIV 11 Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad--in order that God's purpose in election might stand: WEB 12 it was said to her, "The elder will serve the younger." NIV 12 not by works but by him who calls--she was told, "The older will serve the younger." WEB 13 Even as it is written, "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated." NIV 13 Just as it is written: "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated." WEB 14 What will we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? May it never be! NIV 14 What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all! WEB 15 For he said to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion." NIV 15 For he says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion." WEB 16 So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who has mercy. NIV 16 It does not, therefore, depend on man's desire or effort, but on God's mercy. WEB 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "For this very purpose I caused you to be raised up, that I might show in you my power, and that my name might be published abroad in all the earth." NIV 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: "I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth." WEB 18 So then, he has mercy on whom he desires, and he hardens whom he desires. NIV 18 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. WEB 19 You will say then to me, "Why does he still find fault? For who withstands his will?" NIV 19 One of you will say to me: "Then why does God still blame us? For who resists his will?" WEB 20 But no, man, who are you who replies against God? Will the thing formed ask him who formed it, "Why did you make me like this?" NIV 20 But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? "Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, 'Why did you make me like this?' " WEB 21 Or hasn't the potter a right over the clay, from the same lump to make one part a vessel for honor, and another for dishonor? NIV 21 Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use? WEB 22 What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath made for destruction, NIV 22 What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath--prepared for destruction? WEB 23 and that he might make known the riches of his glory on vessels of mercy, which he prepared beforehand for glory, NIV 23 What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory-- WEB 24 us, whom he also called, not from the Jews only, but also from the Gentiles? NIV 24 even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles? WEB 25 As he says also in Hosea, "I will call them 'my people,' which were not my people; And her 'beloved,' who was not beloved." NIV 25 As he says in Hosea: "I will call them 'my people' who are not my people; and I will call her 'my loved one' who is not my loved one," WEB 26 "It will be that in the place where it was said to them, 'You are not my people,' There will they be called 'sons of the living God.'" NIV 26 and, "It will happen that in the very place where it was said to them, 'You are not my people,' they will be called 'sons of the living God.' " WEB 27 Isaiah cries concerning Israel, "If the number of the children of Israel are as the sand of the sea, It is the remnant who will be saved; NIV 27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: "Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea, only the remnant will be saved. WEB 28 For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, Because the LORD will make a short work upon the earth." NIV 28 For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality." WEB 29 As Isaiah has said before, "Unless the Lord of Hosts had left us a seed, We would have become like Sodom, And would have been made like Gomorrah." NIV 29 It is just as Isaiah said previously: "Unless the Lord Almighty had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah." WEB 30 What will we say then? That the Gentiles, who didn't follow after righteousness, attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith; NIV 30 What then shall we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith; WEB 31 but Israel, following after a law of righteousness, didn't arrive at the law of righteousness. NIV 31 but Israel, who pursued a law of righteousness, has not attained it. WEB 32 Why? Because they didn't seek it by faith, but as it were by works of the law. They stumbled over the stumbling stone; NIV 32 Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the "stumbling stone." WEB 33 even as it is written, "Behold, I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense. And no one who believes in him will be put to shame." NIV 33 As it is written: "See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame."
