Just as you who were at one time disobedient1 to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience,
so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may nowa receive mercy as a result of God's mercy to you.
For God has bound all men over to disobedience2 so that he may have mercy on them all.
Oh, the depth of the riches3 of the wisdom andb knowledge of God!4 How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!534
"Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?"c635
"Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?"d736
For from him and through him and to him are all things.8 To him be the glory forever! Amen.9
