Romans 9:1-7

NLT 1 With Christ as my witness, I speak with utter truthfulness. My conscience and the Holy Spirit confirm it. NIV 1 I speak the truth in Christ—I am not lying, my conscience confirms it through the Holy Spirit— NLT 2 My heart is filled with bitter sorrow and unending grief NIV 2 I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. NLT 3 for my people, my Jewish brothers and sisters. I would be willing to be forever cursed—cut off from Christ!—if that would save them. NIV 3 For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my people, those of my own race, NLT 4 They are the people of Israel, chosen to be God’s adopted children. God revealed his glory to them. He made covenants with them and gave them his law. He gave them the privilege of worshiping him and receiving his wonderful promises. NIV 4 the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption to sonship; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. NLT 5 Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are their ancestors, and Christ himself was an Israelite as far as his human nature is concerned. And he is God, the one who rules over everything and is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. NIV 5 Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen. NLT 6 Well then, has God failed to fulfill his promise to Israel? No, for not all who are born into the nation of Israel are truly members of God’s people! NIV 6 It is not as though God’s word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel. NLT 7 Being descendants of Abraham doesn’t make them truly Abraham’s children. For the Scriptures say, “Isaac is the son through whom your descendants will be counted,” though Abraham had other children, too. 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.”
