I say then, aHath God cast away his people? bGod forbid. For cdI also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of dthe tribe of Benjamin. eGod hath not cast away his people fwhich he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he gmaketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, Lord, hthey have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith ithe answer of God unto him? kI have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is la remnant according to the election of grace. And mif by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? nIsrael hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were ||blinded (According as it is written, oGod hath given them the spirit of ||slumber, peyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, qLet their table be made a snare, and a trap, and qqa stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.

11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? bGod forbid: but rather rthrough their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, sfor to provoke them to jealousy. 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 fulness? 13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as tI am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: 14 If by any means I may sprovoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and umight uwsave some of them. 15 For if the casting away of them be the xreconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? 16 For if ythe firstfruit be holy, zthe lump is also holy: and if athe root be holy, so are the branches. 17 And if bsome of the branches be broken off, and thou, cbeing a wild olive tree, wert graffed in ||among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of dthe olive tree; 18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. 20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou estandest by faith. eBe not highminded, but ffear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, gif thou continue in his goodness: otherwise hthou also shalt be cut off. 23 And ithey also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. 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?

25 For iiI would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, jlest ye should be wise in your own conceits; kthat ||blindness lin part is happened to Israel, muntil the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26 And iso all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, nThere shall come oout of Sion the Deliverer, and pshall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
