Romans 9:1–5

Israel’s Rejection Considered

9:1 1 I am telling the truth in Christ (I am not lying!), for my conscience assures me2 in the Holy Spirit—9:2 I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart.3 9:3 For I could wish4 that I myself were accursed—cut off from Christ—for the sake of my people,5 my fellow countrymen,6 9:4 who are Israelites. To them belong7 the adoption as sons,8 the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the temple worship,9 and the promises. 9:5 To them belong the patriarchs,10 and from them,11 by human descent,12 came the Christ,13 who is God over all, blessed forever!14 Amen.
