Romans Chapter 11
11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also
am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
11:2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not
what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God
against Israel saying,
11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars;
and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to
myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of
11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according
to the election of grace.
11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no
more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise
work is no more work.
11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but
the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of
slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not
hear;) unto this day.
11:9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a
stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:
11:10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down
their back alway.
11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid:
but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for
to provoke them to jealousy.
11:12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the
diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their
11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the
Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
11:14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my
flesh, and might save some of them.
11:15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world,
what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the
root be holy, so are the branches.
11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild
olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the
root and fatness of the olive tree;
11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest
not the root, but the root thee.
11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be
11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest
by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also
spare not thee.
11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which
fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his
goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be
graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by
nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how
much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into
their own olive tree?
11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this
mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in
part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come
11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall
come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from
11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their
11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as
touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes.
11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now
obtained mercy through their unbelief:
11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy
they also may obtain mercy.
11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have
mercy upon all.
11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his
11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto
11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom
be glory for ever. Amen.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
