Passage: Romans 11:7 - Romans 11:27
7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which they seek for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
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.
9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompense unto them;
10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.
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.
12 Now if the fall of them is the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fullness?
13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office.
14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
15 For if the casting away of them is the reconciling of the world, what shall the restoring of them be, but life from the dead?
16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.
17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wast grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
18 Boast not against the branches, for thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 For if thou boast, thou wilt say, The branches were broken off, that we might be grafted in.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear;
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
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.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in; for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For it thou wast cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wast grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree; how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits, that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And then all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
