Romans 11
Rom 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. (kjv) Rom 11:1 I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. Rom 11:1 λέγω οὗν, μὴ ἀπώσατο ὁ θεὸς τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ; μὴ γένοιτο· καὶ γὰρ ἐγὼ ἰσραηλίτης εἰμί, ἐκ σπέρματος ἀβραάμ, φυλῆς βενιαμίν.
Rom 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, (kjv) Rom 11:2 God has not rejected His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? Rom 11:2 οὐκ ἀπώσατο ὁ θεὸς τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ὃν προέγνω. ἢ οὐκ οἴδατε ἐν ἠλίᾳ τί λέγει ἡ γραφή; ὡς ἐντυγχάνει τῶ θεῶ κατὰ τοῦ ἰσραήλ,
Rom 11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. (kjv) Rom 11:3 "Lord, they have killed Your prophets, they have torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they are seeking my life." Rom 11:3 κύριε, τοὺς προφήτας σου ἀπέκτειναν, τὰ θυσιαστήριά σου κατέσκαψαν, κἀγὼ ὑπελείφθην μόνος, καὶ ζητοῦσιν τὴν ψυχήν μου.
Rom 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. (kjv) Rom 11:4 But what is the divine response to him." I have kept for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal." Rom 11:4 ἀλλὰ τί λέγει αὐτῶ ὁ χρηματισμός; κατέλιπον ἐμαυτῶ ἑπτακισχιλίους ἄνδρας, οἵτινες οὐκ ἔκαμψαν γόνυ τῇ βάαλ.
Rom 11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. (kjv) Rom 11:5 In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time a remnant according to God's gracious choice. Rom 11:5 οὕτως οὗν καὶ ἐν τῶ νῦν καιρῶ λεῖμμα κατ᾽ ἐκλογὴν χάριτος γέγονεν·
Rom 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 it is no more grace otherwise work is no more work. (kjv) Rom 11:6 But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace. Rom 11:6 εἰ δὲ χάριτι, οὐκέτι ἐξ ἔργων, ἐπεὶ ἡ χάρις οὐκέτι γίνεται χάρις.
Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. (kjv) Rom 11:7 What then? What Israel is seeking, it has not obtained, but those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened; Rom 11:7 τί οὗν; ὃ ἐπιζητεῖ ἰσραήλ, τοῦτο οὐκ ἐπέτυχεν, ἡ δὲ ἐκλογὴ ἐπέτυχεν· οἱ δὲ λοιποὶ ἐπωρώθησαν,
Rom 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. (kjv) Rom 11:8 just as it is written," God gave them a spirit of stupor, Eyes to see not and ears to hear not, Down to this very day." Rom 11:8 καθὼς γέγραπται, ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς ὁ θεὸς πνεῦμα κατανύξεως, ὀφθαλμοὺς τοῦ μὴ βλέπειν καὶ ὦτα τοῦ μὴ ἀκούειν, ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας.
Rom 11:9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: (kjv) Rom 11:9 And David says," Let their table become a snare and a trap, And a stumbling block and a retribution to them. Rom 11:9 καὶ δαυὶδ λέγει, γενηθήτω ἡ τράπεζα αὐτῶν εἰς παγίδα καὶ εἰς θήραν καὶ εἰς σκάνδαλον καὶ εἰς ἀνταπόδομα αὐτοῖς,
Rom 11:10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. (kjv) Rom 11:10 "Let their eyes be darkened to see not, And bend their backs forever." Rom 11:10 σκοτισθήτωσαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτῶν τοῦ μὴ βλέπειν, καὶ τὸν νῶτον αὐτῶν διὰ παντὸς σύγκαμψον.
Rom 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. (kjv) Rom 11:11 I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? May it never be! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make them jealous. Rom 11:11 λέγω οὗν, μὴ ἔπταισαν ἵνα πέσωσιν; μὴ γένοιτο· ἀλλὰ τῶ αὐτῶν παραπτώματι ἡ σωτηρία τοῖς ἔθνεσιν, εἰς τὸ παραζηλῶσαι αὐτούς.
Rom 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? (kjv) Rom 11:12 Now if their transgression is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fulfillment be! Rom 11:12 εἰ δὲ τὸ παράπτωμα αὐτῶν πλοῦτος κόσμου καὶ τὸ ἥττημα αὐτῶν πλοῦτος ἐθνῶν, πόσῳ μᾶλλον τὸ πλήρωμα αὐτῶν.
Rom 11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: (kjv) Rom 11:13 But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, Rom 11:13 ὑμῖν δὲ λέγω τοῖς ἔθνεσιν. ἐφ᾽ ὅσον μὲν οὗν εἰμι ἐγὼ ἐθνῶν ἀπόστολος, τὴν διακονίαν μου δοξάζω,
Rom 11:14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. (kjv) Rom 11:14 if somehow I might move to jealousy my fellow countrymen and save some of them. Rom 11:14 εἴ πως παραζηλώσω μου τὴν σάρκα καὶ σώσω τινὰς ἐξ αὐτῶν.
Rom 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? (kjv) Rom 11:15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? Rom 11:15 εἰ γὰρ ἡ ἀποβολὴ αὐτῶν καταλλαγὴ κόσμου, τίς ἡ πρόσλημψις εἰ μὴ ζωὴ ἐκ νεκρῶν;
Rom 11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. (kjv) Rom 11:16 If the first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too. Rom 11:16 εἰ δὲ ἡ ἀπαρχὴ ἁγία, καὶ τὸ φύραμα· καὶ εἰ ἡ ῥίζα ἁγία, καὶ οἱ κλάδοι.
Rom 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; (kjv) Rom 11:17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, Rom 11:17 εἰ δέ τινες τῶν κλάδων ἐξεκλάσθησαν, σὺ δὲ ἀγριέλαιος ὢν ἐνεκεντρίσθης ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ συγκοινωνὸς τῆς ῥίζης τῆς πιότητος τῆς ἐλαίας ἐγένου,
Rom 11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. (kjv) Rom 11:18 do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. Rom 11:18 μὴ κατακαυχῶ τῶν κλάδων· εἰ δὲ κατακαυχᾶσαι, οὐ σὺ τὴν ῥίζαν βαστάζεις ἀλλὰ ἡ ῥίζα σέ.
Rom 11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. (kjv) Rom 11:19 You will say then," Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in." Rom 11:19 ἐρεῖς οὗν, ἐξεκλάσθησαν κλάδοι ἵνα ἐγὼ ἐγκεντρισθῶ.
Rom 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: (kjv) Rom 11:20 Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear; Rom 11:20 καλῶς· τῇ ἀπιστίᾳ ἐξεκλάσθησαν, σὺ δὲ τῇ πίστει ἕστηκας. μὴ ὑψηλὰ φρόνει, ἀλλὰ φοβοῦ·
Rom 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. (kjv) Rom 11:21 for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. Rom 11:21 εἰ γὰρ ὁ θεὸς τῶν κατὰ φύσιν κλάδων οὐκ ἐφείσατο, [μή πως] οὐδὲ σοῦ φείσεται.
Rom 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. (kjv) Rom 11:22 Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God's kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. Rom 11:22 ἴδε οὗν χρηστότητα καὶ ἀποτομίαν θεοῦ· ἐπὶ μὲν τοὺς πεσόντας ἀποτομία, ἐπὶ δὲ σὲ χρηστότης θεοῦ, ἐὰν ἐπιμένῃς τῇ χρηστότητι, ἐπεὶ καὶ σὺ ἐκκοπήσῃ.
Rom 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. (kjv) Rom 11:23 And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. Rom 11:23 κἀκεῖνοι δέ, ἐὰν μὴ ἐπιμένωσιν τῇ ἀπιστίᾳ, ἐγκεντρισθήσονται· δυνατὸς γάρ ἐστιν ὁ θεὸς πάλιν ἐγκεντρίσαι αὐτούς.
Rom 11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert 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? (kjv) Rom 11:24 For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree? Rom 11:24 εἰ γὰρ σὺ ἐκ τῆς κατὰ φύσιν ἐξεκόπης ἀγριελαίου καὶ παρὰ φύσιν ἐνεκεντρίσθης εἰς καλλιέλαιον, πόσῳ μᾶλλον οὖτοι οἱ κατὰ φύσιν ἐγκεντρισθήσονται τῇ ἰδίᾳ ἐλαίᾳ.
Rom 11:25 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 fulness of the Gentiles be come in. (kjv) Rom 11:25 For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery"so that you will not be wise in your own estimation"that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; Rom 11:25 οὐ γὰρ θέλω ὑμᾶς ἀγνοεῖν, ἀδελφοί, τὸ μυστήριον τοῦτο, ἵνα μὴ ἦτε [παρ᾽] ἑαυτοῖς φρόνιμοι, ὅτι πώρωσις ἀπὸ μέρους τῶ ἰσραὴλ γέγονεν ἄχρις οὖ τὸ πλήρωμα τῶν ἐθνῶν εἰσέλθῃ,
Rom 11 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob (kjv) Rom 11:26 and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written," The Deliverer will come from Zion, He will remove ungodliness from Jacob." Rom 11:26 καὶ οὕτως πᾶς ἰσραὴλ σωθήσεται· καθὼς γέγραπται, ἥξει ἐκ σιὼν ὁ ῥυόμενος, ἀποστρέψει ἀσεβείας ἀπὸ ἰακώβ·
Rom 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. (kjv) Rom 11:27 "This is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins." Rom 11:27 καὶ αὕτη αὐτοῖς ἡ παρ᾽ ἐμοῦ διαθήκη, ὅταν ἀφέλωμαι τὰς ἁμαρτίας αὐτῶν.
Rom 11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes. (kjv) Rom 11:28 From the standpoint of the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but from the standpoint of God's choice they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; Rom 11:28 κατὰ μὲν τὸ εὐαγγέλιον ἐχθροὶ δι᾽ ὑμᾶς, κατὰ δὲ τὴν ἐκλογὴν ἀγαπητοὶ διὰ τοὺς πατέρας·
Rom 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. (kjv) Rom 11:29 for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Rom 11:29 ἀμεταμέλητα γὰρ τὰ χαρίσματα καὶ ἡ κλῆσις τοῦ θεοῦ.
Rom 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: (kjv) Rom 11:30 For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience, Rom 11:30 ὥσπερ γὰρ ὑμεῖς ποτε ἠπειθήσατε τῶ θεῶ, νῦν δὲ ἠλεήθητε τῇ τούτων ἀπειθείᾳ,
Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. (kjv) Rom 11:31 so these also now have been disobedient, that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy. Rom 11:31 οὕτως καὶ οὖτοι νῦν ἠπείθησαν τῶ ὑμετέρῳ ἐλέει ἵνα καὶ αὐτοὶ [νῦν] ἐλεηθῶσιν·
Rom 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. (kjv) Rom 11:32 For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all. Rom 11:32 συνέκλεισεν γὰρ ὁ θεὸς τοὺς πάντας εἰς ἀπείθειαν ἵνα τοὺς πάντας ἐλεήσῃ.
Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! (kjv) Rom 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! Rom 11:33 ὦ βάθος πλούτου καὶ σοφίας καὶ γνώσεως θεοῦ· ὡς ἀνεξεραύνητα τὰ κρίματα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀνεξιχνίαστοι αἱ ὁδοὶ αὐτοῦ.
Rom 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? (kjv) Rom 11:34 For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor? Rom 11:34 τίς γὰρ ἔγνω νοῦν κυρίου; ἢ τίς σύμβουλος αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο;
Rom 11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? (kjv) Rom 11:35 Or who has first given to Him that it might be paid back to him again? Rom 11:35 ἢ τίς προέδωκεν αὐτῶ, καὶ ἀνταποδοθήσεται αὐτῶ;
Rom 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.(kjv) Rom 11:36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen. Rom 11:36 ὅτι ἐξ αὐτοῦ καὶ δι᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς αὐτὸν τὰ πάντα· αὐτῶ ἡ δόξα εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας· ἀμήν.
