Romans 9:25–33

25 As He says also in Hosea,

aI will call those who were not My people, ‘My people,’

And her who was not beloved, ‘beloved.’ ”

26 aAnd it shall be that in the place where it was said to them, ‘you are not My people,’

There they shall be called sons of bthe living God.”

27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, “aThough the number of the sons of Israel be blike the sand of the sea, it is cthe remnant that will be saved;

28 afor the Lord will execute His word on the earth, 1thoroughly and 2quickly.”

29 And just as Isaiah foretold,

aUnless bthe Lord of 1Sabaoth had left to us a 2posterity,

cWe would have become like Sodom, and would have 3resembled Gomorrah.”

30 aWhat shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, attained righteousness, even bthe righteousness which is 1by faith;

31 but Israel, apursuing a law of righteousness, did not barrive at that law.

32 Why? Because they did not pursue it 1by faith, but as though it were 1by works. They stumbled over athe stumbling stone,

33 just as it is written,

aBehold, I lay in Zion ba stone of stumbling and a rock of offense,

cAnd he who believes in Him dwill not be 1disappointed.”
