Romans 11:11–23

Israel’s Rejection Not Final

11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But nthrough their 2fall, to provoke them to ojealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. 12 Now if their 3fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!

13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as pI am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and qsave some of them. 15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be rbut life from the dead?

16 For if sthe firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. 17 And if tsome of the branches were broken off, uand you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and 4fatness of the olive tree, 18 vdo not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.

19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of wunbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, 5goodness, xif you continue in His goodness. Otherwise yyou also will be cut off. 23 And they also, zif they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
