Israel Is Not Cast Away

1 I say then, God has not rejected R523 His people, has He? May R524 it never be! For I R525 too am an Israelite, a F182 descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has R526 not rejected His people whom He foreknew. R527 Or R528 do you not know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? 3 "Lord, THEY R529 HAVE KILLED YOUR PROPHETS, THEY HAVE TORN DOWN YOUR ALTARS, AND I ALONE AM LEFT, AND THEY ARE SEEKING MY LIFE." 4 But what is F183 the divine response to him? "I R530 HAVE KEPT for Myself SEVEN THOUSAND MEN WHO HAVE NOT BOWED THE KNEE TO BAAL." 5 In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time a R531 remnant according to God's gracious F184 choice. 6 But if R532 it is by grace, it is no longer on F185 the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.

7 What then? What Israel R533 is seeking, it has not obtained, but those F186 who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened; R534 8 just as it is written, "GOD R535 GAVE THEM A SPIRIT OF STUPOR, EYES TO SEE NOT AND EARS TO HEAR NOT, DOWN TO THIS VERY DAY." 9 And David says, "LET R536 THEIR TABLE BECOME A SNARE AND A TRAP, AND A STUMBLING BLOCK AND A RETRIBUTION TO THEM.



11 I R538 say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? May R539 it never be! But by their transgression salvation R540 has come to the Gentiles, to make R541 them jealous. 12 Now if their transgression is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fulfillment R542 F187 be! 13 But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I R543 am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if somehow I might move R544 to jealousy my R545 fellow F188 countrymen and save R546 some of them. 15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation R547 of the world, what will their acceptance be but life R548 from the dead? 16 If the first R549 piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too.

17 But if some of the branches R550 were broken off, and you, R551 being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich F189 root of the olive tree, 18 do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it R552 is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. 19 You R553 will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in." 20 Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand R554 by your faith. Do R555 not be conceited, but fear; 21 for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. 22 Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God's kindness, R556 if R557 you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will R558 be cut off. 23 And they also, if R559 they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?

25 For I R560 do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery--so R561 that you will not be wise R562 in your own estimation--that a partial hardening R563 has happened to Israel until the fullness R564 of the Gentiles has come in; 26 and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, "THE R565 DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION, HE WILL REMOVE UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB."



28 From F191 the standpoint of the gospel they are enemies R568 for your sake, but from F192 the standpoint of God's choice they are beloved for the R569 sake of the fathers; 29 for the gifts and the calling R570 of God are R571 irrevocable. 30 For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so these also now have been disobedient, that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy. 32 For God R572 has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.

33 Oh, the depth of the R573 riches both F193 of the wisdom R574 and knowledge of God! How R575 unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! 34 For WHO R576 HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, OR WHO BECAME HIS COUNSELOR? 35 Or WHO R577 HAS FIRST GIVEN TO HIM THAT F194 IT MIGHT BE PAID BACK TO HIM AGAIN? 36 For from R578 Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To R579 Him be the glory forever. F195 Amen.
