boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
Thou wilt say then, "The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in."
Thou sayest well! Because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear;
for if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest He also spare not thee.
Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in His goodness. Otherwise, thou also shalt be cut off.
And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more shall these, which are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
For I, brethren, would not have you be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits: that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.
And so all Israel shall be saved, as it is written: "There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.
For this is My covenant unto them when I shall take away their sins."
Concerning the Gospel, they are enemies for your sake; but concerning the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.
