Romans 11
1I say then, Has God-The Father cast away his people? May it not be. For I also am an Israeli, of the seed of Avraham [Exalted Father], [of] the tribe of Binyamin [Son of the Right Hand/Strength].
2God-The Father has not cast away his people which he foreknew. Knew (thought; supposed) you2f not what the scripture says of Eliyahu [my God is Yehovah]? how he makes intercession to God-The Father against Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God], saying,
3Lord - Kurios, they have killed youri prophets, and excavated down youri altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
4But what says the answer of God-The Father unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to [the image of] Ba’al [lord (a false god)].
5Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
6And if 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.
7What then? Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God] has not obtained that which he seeks for; but the election has obtained it, and the rest were blinded
8(According as it is written, God-The Father has given them the Spirit [Ruach] of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
9And David [Beloved] says, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence (punishment for evil, reward) unto them:
10Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back always.
11I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? May it not be: but [rather] through their fall salvation [is come] unto the Goyim [Gentiles], for to provoke them to jealousy.
12Now if the fall of them [be] the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Goyim [Gentiles]; how much more their fullness?
13For I speak to you Goyim [Gentiles], inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Goyim [Gentiles], I magnify my office:
14If by any means I may provoke to emulation (trying to equal or be better than others) [them which are] my flesh, and might save some of them.
15For if the casting away of them [be] the reconciling of the world, what [shall] the receiving [of them be], but life from the dead?
16For if the firstfruit [be] holy, the lump [is] also [holy]: and if the root [be] holy, so [are] the branches.
17And if some of the branches be broken off, and youi, being a wild olive tree, were graffed in among them, and with them partakes of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
18Boast not against the branches. But if youi boast, youi bear not the root, but the root youi.
19youi will say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.
20Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and youi stand by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
21For if God-The Father spared not the natural branches, [take heed] lest he also spare not youi.
22Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God-The Father: on them which fell, severity; but toward youi, goodness, if youi continue in [his] goodness: otherwise youi also shall be cut off.
23And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God-The Father is able to graff them in again.
24For if youi were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were 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?
25For I would not, brethren, that you2f should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you2f should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God], until the fullness of the Goyim [Gentiles] be come in.
26And so all Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God] shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Tziyon [a parched place] the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Ya’akov [He who grabs onto the heal of] [Heal of God]:
27For this [is] my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28As concerning the Gospel (joyful message), [they are] enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, [they are] beloved for the fathers’ sakes.
29For the gifts and calling of God-The Father [are] without repentance.
30For as you2f in times past have not believed God-The Father, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
32For God-The Father has concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
33O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God-The Father! how unsearchable [are] his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
34For who has known the mind of the Lord - Kurios? or who has been his counsellor?
35Or who has first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
36For of him, and through him, and to him, [are] all things: to whom [be] glory forever. Amen.
