045:011:001
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.


045:011:002
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,


045:011:003
Lord,
they have killed thy prophets,
and digged down thine altars;
and I am left alone,
and they seek my life.


045:011:004
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 Baal.


045:011:005
Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.


045:011:006
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.


045:011:007
What then?
Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for;
but the election hath obtained it,
and the rest were blinded.


045:011:008
(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.


045:011:009
And David saith,
Let their table be made a snare,
and a trap,
and a stumblingblock,
and a recompence unto them:


045:011:010
Let their eyes be darkened,
that they may not see,
and bow down their back alway.


045:011:011
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.


045:011:012
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 fulness?


045:011:013
For I speak to you Gentiles,
inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles,
I magnify mine office:


045:011:014
If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh,
and might save some of them.


045:011:015
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?


045:011:016
For if the firstfruit be holy,
the lump is also holy:
and if the root be holy,
so are the branches.


045:011:017
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;


045:011:018
Boast not against the branches.
But if thou boast,
thou bearest not the root,
but the root thee.


045:011:019
Thou wilt say then,
The branches were broken off,
that I might be graffed in.


045:011:020
Well;
because of unbelief they were broken off,
and thou standest by faith.
Be not highminded,
but fear:


045:011:021
For if God spared not the natural branches,
take heed lest he also spare not thee.


045:011:022
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.


045:011:023
And they also,
if they abide not still in unbelief,
shall be graffed in:
for God is able to graff them in again.


045:011:024
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?


045:011:025
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 in.


045:011:026
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 Jacob:


045:011:027
For this is my covenant unto them,
when I shall take away their sins.


045:011:028
As concerning the gospel,
they are enemies for your sakes:
but as touching the election,
they are beloved for the father's sakes.


045:011:029
For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.


045:011:030
For as ye in times past have not believed God,
yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:


045:011:031
Even so have these also now not believed,
that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.


045:011:032
For God hath concluded them all in unbelief,
that he might have mercy upon all.


045:011:033
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!


045:011:034
For who hath known the mind of the Lord?
or who hath been his counsellor?


045:011:035
Or who hath first given to him,
and it shall be recompensed unto him again?


045:011:036
For of him,
and through him,
and to him,
are all things:
to whom be glory for ever.
Amen.
