Romans 11 - AMP

2 No, God has not rejected and disowned His people He had marked out and appointed and foreknown from the beginning. Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? 3 Lord, they have killed Your prophets; they have demolished Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life. 4 But what is God's reply to him? I have kept for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal! 5 So too at the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority), selected (chosen) by grace (by God's unmerited favor and graciousness). 6 But if it is by grace (His unmerited favor and graciousness), it is no longer conditioned on works or anything men have done. Otherwise, grace would no longer be grace . 7 What then ? Israel failed to obtain what it sought . Only the elect (those chosen few) obtained it, while the rest of them became callously indifferent (blinded, hardened, and made insensible to it). 8 As it is written, God gave them a spirit (an attitude) of stupor, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, down to this very day. 9 And David says, Let their table (their feasting, banqueting) become a snare and a trap, a pitfall and a Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.just retribution ; 10 Let their eyes be darkened (dimmed) so that they cannot see, and make them bend their back forever. 11 So I ask, Have they stumbled so as to fall ? By no means! But through their false step and transgression salvation to the Gentiles, so as to arouse Israel and so to make them jealous. 12 Now if their stumbling (their lapse, their transgression) has so enriched the world , and if failure means such riches for the Gentiles, think what an enrichment and greater advantage will follow their full reinstatement! 13 But now I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I lay great stress on my ministry and magnify my office, 14 In the hope of making my fellow Jews jealous , and thus managing to save some of them. 15 For if their rejection and exclusion from the benefits of salvation were for the reconciliation of a world to God, what will their acceptance and admission mean? life from the dead! 16 Now if the first handful of dough offered as the firstfruits is consecrated (holy), so is the whole mass ; and if the root is consecrated (holy), so are the branches. 17 But if some of the branches were broken off, while you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among them to share the richness of the olive tree, 18 Do not boast over the branches and pride yourself at their expense. If you do boast and feel superior, remember it is not you that support the root, but the root you. 19 You will say then, Branches were broken (pruned) off so that I might be grafted in! 20 That is true. But they were broken (pruned) off because of their unbelief (their lack of real faith), and you are established through faith . So do not become proud and conceited, but rather stand in awe and be reverently afraid. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches , neither will He spare you . 22 Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's gracious kindness to you--provided you continue in His grace and abide in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away). 23 And even those others , if they do not persist in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. 24 For if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and against nature grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much easier will it be to graft these natural back on their own olive tree. 25 Lest you be self-opinionated (wise in your own conceits), I do not want you to miss this hidden truth and mystery, brethren: a hardening (insensibility) has befallen a part of Israel until the Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.full number of the ingathering of the Gentiles has come in, 26 And so all Israel will be saved. As it is written, The Deliverer will come from Zion, He will banish ungodliness from Jacob. 27 And this will be My covenant (My agreement) with them when I shall take away their sins. 28 From the point of view of the Gospel (good news), they are enemies , which is for your advantage and benefit. But from the point of view of God's choice (of election, of divine selection), they are still the beloved (dear to Him) for the sake of their forefathers. 29 For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable. 30 Just as you were once disobedient and rebellious toward God but now have obtained mercy, through their disobedience, 31 So they also now are being disobedient , that they in turn may one day, through the mercy you are enjoying, also receive mercy . 32 For God has consigned (penned up) all men to disobedience, only that He may have mercy on them all . 33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unfathomable (inscrutable, unsearchable) are His judgments (His decisions)! And how untraceable (mysterious, undiscoverable) are His ways (His methods, His paths)! 34 For who has known the mind of the Lord and who has understood His thoughts, or who has been His counselor? 35 Or who has first given God anything that he might be paid back or that he could claim a recompense? 36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever! Amen (so be it).
