The Holy Bible (KJV) _ Romans 11


(Romans 11:1) I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

(Romans 11:2) God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,

(Romans 11:3) Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

(Romans 11:4) But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

(Romans 11:5) Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

(Romans 11:6) And 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.

(Romans 11:7) What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

(Romans 11:8) (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

(Romans 11:9) And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:

(Romans 11:10) Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.

(Romans 11:11) I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

(Romans 11:12) 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?

(Romans 11:13) For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

(Romans 11:14) If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

(Romans 11:15) For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

(Romans 11:16) For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

(Romans 11:17) And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

(Romans 11:18) Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

(Romans 11:19) Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.

(Romans 11:20) Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

(Romans 11:21) For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

(Romans 11:22) Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

(Romans 11:23) And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
