Romans 9

Rom 9:1 I tell you in all honesty before the Anointed— and my conscience testifies together with me in the Holy Spirit—
Rom 9:2 that I have great sorrow and relentless pain in my heart.
Rom 9:3 For I would be willing to be cursed and separated from the Anointed for the sake of my brothers and sisters, my natural relatives.
Rom 9:4 They are the people of Israel; they possess the adoption, and the honor, and the contracts, and the law, and the divine service, and the promises.
Rom 9:5 They have the ancestors, and above all, as far as the flesh is concerned they are the ones through whom the Anointed came— bless God forever, absolutely!
Rom 9:6 Now it isn’t as though the Word of God has failed, because not all those who descended from Israel are Israel.
Rom 9:7 All the descendants of Abraham are his children, but “Your descendants will be called through Isaac.”
Rom 9:8 That is, it’s not the natural children who are children of God; rather, it’s the children of the promise who are considered descendants.
Rom 9:9 This is how the promise is worded: “At the appointed time I will return, and Sarah will have a son.”
Rom 9:10 In addition, Rebecca’s children all had the same father, our ancestor Isaac.
Rom 9:11 But before they were born— before they could have done anything good or bad—
Rom 9:12 the purpose of God remained; the choice was
Rom 9:13 not due to actions but to the One who does the calling. And it was declared to her that “The older will slave for the younger.”
Rom 9:14 What can we say then, that God is unjust? Absolutely not!
Rom 9:15 For as he told Moses, “I will show mercy to whom I choose, and I will show pity to whom I choose.”
Rom 9:16 So then it does not depend on a person’s will or efforts but on God, the one who shows mercy.
Rom 9:17 As the scripture says to Pharaoh, “I raised you up for this very thing, so that I would display my power in you, and so that my Name will be known around the world.”
Rom 9:18 Consequently, God can choose to either be compassionate or to harden.
Rom 9:19 But you will protest to me, “Then why does he still blame people, since no one can thwart his intentions?”
Rom 9:20 Puny human! Who are you, after all, to talk back to God? Will the thing that’s been formed say to the one who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?”
Rom 9:21 Ridiculous! Doesn’t the potter have the right to take the same lump of clay and make both a container for honorable things and a container for trash?
Rom 9:22 Suppose God wanted to display his rage and make his power known. By patiently carrying the “trash bins” that are designed for destruction,
Rom 9:23 he also demonstrated the riches of his majesty on the containers of his compassion that were prepared for honor—
Rom 9:24 us, whom he called not only out of the Judeans but also out of the non-Judeans.
Rom 9:25 In Hosea he says, “I will call those who were not my people, My People, and she who was unloved, My Dear,”
Rom 9:26 and, “It will happen in the place where it was declared to them ‘You are not my people’; there they will be called children of the living God.”
Rom 9:27 Now Isaiah cries over Israel, “Though the people of Israel are as uncountable as the grains of sand, only a small number will be saved.
Rom 9:28 For the Master’s word will bring the earth to a definite end.”
Rom 9:29 And according to what Isaiah declared earlier, “If the Master of Armies hadn’t preserved a small number of us, we would have become Sodom; we would have been compared to Gomorrah.”
Rom 9:30 So what are we saying? That the non-Judeans, who were not seeking justice, obtained it by means of faith.
Rom 9:31 Yet Israel, who sought a just law, did not obtain it.
Rom 9:32 Why? Because they pursued it out of works and not faith; they stumbled over the Stumbling Stone,
Rom 9:33 just as it is written: “Look, I am laying down a stumbling stone in Zion, and a Rock that trips people, but the one who puts their trust in him will not be embarrassed.”
Rom 9:1 αληθειαν λεγω εν χριστω ου ψευδομαι συμμαρτυρουσης μοι της συνειδησεως μου εν πνευματι ἁγιω
Rom 9:2 ὁτι λυπη μοι εστιν μεγαλη και αδιαλειπτος οδυνη τη καρδια μου
Rom 9:3 ηυχομην γαρ αναθεμα ειναι αυτος εγω απο του χριστου ὑπερ των αδελφων μου των συγγενων μου κατα σαρκα
Rom 9:4 οἱτινες εισιν ισραηλιται ὡν ἡ υἱοθεσια και ἡ δοξα και αἱ διαθηκαι και ἡ νομοθεσια και ἡ λατρεια και αἱ επαγγελιαι
Rom 9:5 ὡν οἱ πατερες και εξ ὡν ὁ χριστος το κατα σαρκα ὁ ων επι παντων θεος ευλογητος εις τους αιωνας αμην
Rom 9:6 ουχ οἱον δε ὁτι εκπεπτωκεν ὁ λογος του θεου ου γαρ παντες οἱ εξ ισραηλ οὑτοι ισραηλ
Rom 9:7 ουδ᾽ ὁτι εισιν σπερμα αβρααμ παντες τεκνα αλλ᾽ εν ισαακ κληθησεται σοι σπερμα
Rom 9:8 τουτ᾿ εστιν ου τα τεκνα της σαρκος ταυτα τεκνα του θεου αλλα τα τεκνα της επαγγελιαν λογιζεται εις σπερμα
Rom 9:9 επαγγελιαν γαρ ὁ λογος οὑτος κατα τον καιρον τουτον ελευσομαι και εσται τη σαρρα υἱος
Rom 9:10 ου μονον δε αλλα και ῥεβεκκα εξ ἑνος κοιτην εχουσα ισαακ του πατρος ἡμων
Rom 9:11 μηπω γαρ γεννηθεντων μηδε πραξαντων τι αγαθον η φαυλον ἱνα ἡ κατ᾽ εκλογην προθεσις του θεου μενη ουκ εξ εργων αλλ᾽ εκ του καλουντος
Rom 9:12 ερρεθη αυτη ὁτι ὁ μειζων δουλευσει τω ελασσονι
Rom 9:13 καθως γεγραπται τον ιακωβ ηγαπησα τον δε ησαυ εμισησα
Rom 9:14 τι ουν ερουμεν μη αδικια παρα τω θεω μη γενοιτο
Rom 9:15 τω Μοσες γαρ λεγειν ελεησω ὁν αν ελεω και οικτιρησω ὁν αν οικτιρω
Rom 9:16 αρα ουν ου του θελοντος ουδε του τρεχοντος αλλα του ελεουντος θεου
Rom 9:17 λεγειν γαρ ἡ γραφη τω φαραω ὁτι εις αυτο τουτο εξηγειρα σε ὁπως ενδειξωμαι εν σοι την δυναμιν μου και ὁπως διαγγελη το ονομα μου εν παση τη γη
Rom 9:18 αρα ουν ὁν θελει ελεει ὁν δε θελει σκληρυνει
Rom 9:19 ερεις μοι ουν τι ουν ετι μεμφεται τω γαρ βουληματι αυτου τις ανθεστηκεν
Rom 9:20 ω.. ανθρωπε μενουνγε συ τις ει ὁ ανταποκρινομενος τω θεω μη ερει το πλασμα τω πλασαντι τι με εποιησας οὑτως
Rom 9:21 η ουκ εχει εξουσιαν ὁ κεραμευς του πηλου εκ του αυτου φυραματος ποιησαι ὁ μεν εις τιμην σκευος ὁ δε εις ατιμιαν
Rom 9:22 ει. δε θελων ὁ θεος ενδειξασθαι την οργην και γνωρισαι το δυνατον αυτου ηνεγκεν εν πολλη μακροθυμια σκευη οργης κατηρτισμενα εις απωλειαν
Rom 9:23 και ἱνα γνωριση τον πλουτον της δοξης αυτου επι σκευη ελεους ἁ προητοιμασεν εις δοξαν
Rom 9:24 οὑς και εκαλεσεν ἡμας ου μονον εξ ιουδαιων αλλα και εξ εθνων
Rom 9:25 ὡς και εν τω ὡσηε λεγειν καλεσω τον ου λαον μου λαον μου και την ουκ ηγαπημενην ηγαπημενην
Rom 9:26 και εσται εν τω τοπω οὑ ερρεθη αυτοις ου λαος μου ὑμεις εκει κληθησονται υἱοι θεου ζωντος
Rom 9:27 ησαϊας δε κραζει ὑπερ του ισραηλ εαν η ὁ αριθμος των υἱων ισραηλ ὡς ἡ αμμος της θαλασσης το καταλειμμα σωθησεται
Rom 9:28 λογον γαρ συντελων και συντεμνων ποιησει κυριος επι της γης
Rom 9:29 και καθως προειρηκεν ησαϊας ει. μη κυριος σαβαωθ εγκατελιπεν ἡμιν σπερμα ὡς σοδομα αν εγενηθημεν και ὡς γομορρα αν ὡμοιωθημεν
Rom 9:30 τι ουν ερουμεν ὁτι εθνη τα μη διωκοντα δικαιοσυνην κατελαβεν δικαιοσυνην δικαιοσυνην δε την εκ πιστεως
Rom 9:31 ισραηλ δε διωκων νομον δικαιοσυνης εις νομον ουκ εφθασεν
Rom 9:32 δια τι ὁτι ουκ εκ πιστεως αλλ᾽ ὡς εξ εργων προσεκοψαν τω λιθω του προσκομματος
Rom 9:33 καθως γεγραπται ιδου τιθημι εν σιων λιθον προσκομματος και πετραν σκανδαλου και ὁ πιστευων επ᾽ αυτω ου καταισχυνθησεται
