Romans 9:26-33 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
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.' "a1 27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: "Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea,2 only the remnant will be saved.3 28 For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality."b4 29 It is just as Isaiah said previously: "Unless the Lord Almighty5 had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah."c6

Israel's Unbelief

30 What then shall we say?7 That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith;8 31 but Israel, who pursued a law of righteousness,9 has not attained it.10 32 Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the "stumbling stone."11 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."d12
