11:1 Then am I saying that God rejected his people? Absolutely not! I too am an Israeli, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

11:2 God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew; ridiculous! Have you not grasped what Elijah says in the scripture as he pleads with God against Israel?

11:11 Then am I saying that they’ve fallen and can’t get up? Absolutely not! But their blunders meant salvation to the non-Judeans, for the purpose of provoking Israel to jealousy.

11:18 do not gloat over the branches! If you do, remember that the root sustains you, not that you sustain the root.

11:20 Granted; but they were broken off due to unbelief, and you were grafted in for belief. So instead of gloating, be afraid!

11:21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.

11:24 For if you were cut out of a wild olive tree and, against nature, were grafted into the cultivated olive tree, don’t you think that it is even better to re-graft the natural branches back in again?

11:25 I don’t want you to be ignorant of this secret, sisters and brothers, so that you won’t be congratulating yourselves: Partial callousness has come upon Israel until the full number of the non-Judeans has come in.

11:30 For just as even you were once hostile toward faith in God yet were shown mercy by means of the hostility of Israel,
