11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that bthe purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of chim that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, dThe ||elder shall serve the ||younger. 13 As it is written, eJacob have I loved, but Esau have I fhated.
14 What shall we say then? gIs there unrighteousness with God? hGod forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, iI will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
