Pristine Grace

Rom 11:1-36, (KJV)
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.
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,
3  Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
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.
5  Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
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.
7  What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh 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 stumblingblock, and a recompence 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 be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?
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 be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
16  For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
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;
18  Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19  Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed 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 graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
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?
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.
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:
27  For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28  As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes.
29  For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30  For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31  Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
32  For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
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!
34  For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
35  Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
36  For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

Rom 11:1-36, (MKJV)
1  I say then, Did not God put away His people? Let it not be said ! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
2  God did not thrust out His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture said in Elijah, how he pleaded with God against Israel, saying,
3  "Lord, they killed Your prophets and dug down Your altars, and I am left alone, and they seek my life."
4  But what does the Divine answer say to him? "I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal."
5  Even so then, also in this present time a remnant according to the election of grace has come into being.
6  But if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.
7  What then? Israel has not obtained that which it seeks, but the election obtained it , and the rest were hardened
8  even as it is written, "God gave to them a spirit of slumber, eyes not seeing, and ears not hearing" until this day.
9  And David said, "Let their table become for a snare and a trap and a stumbling block and a recompense to them.
10  Let their eyes be darkened so that they may not see, and their back always bowing."
11  I say then, Did they not stumble that they fall? Let it not be! But by their slipping away came salvation to the nations, to provoke them to jealousy.
12  But if their slipping away is the riches of the world, and their default is the riches of the nations, how much more their fullness?
13  For I speak to you, the nations; since I am the apostle of the nations, I glorify my ministry;
14  if by any means I may provoke those who are my flesh to jealousy, and might save some of them.
15  For if their casting away is the reconciling of the world, what is the reception except life from the dead?
16  For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy ; and if the root is holy, also the branches.
17  And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and became a sharer of the root and the fatness of the olive tree with them,
18  do not boast against the branches. But if you boast, it is not you that bears the root, but the root bears you.
19  You will say then, The branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.
20  Well, because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be high-minded, but fear.
21  For if God did not spare the natural branches, fear lest He also may not spare you either!
22  Behold then the kindness, and the severity of God; on those having fallen, severity; but on you, kindness, if you continue in the kindness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.
23  And those also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in. For God is able to graft them in again.
24  For if you were cut out of the natural wild olive tree , and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree ; how much more these being according to nature will be grafted into their own olive-tree?
25  For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, lest you should be wise within yourselves; that blindness in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the nations has comes in.
26  And so all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, "There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.
27  For this is My covenant with them, when I have taken away their sins."
28  Indeed as regards the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes. But as regards the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.
29  For the free gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30  For as you also then disbelieved God, but now have been shown mercy through their disbelief,
31  even so these also have not believed now, so that through your mercy they may also obtain mercy.
32  For God has shut up all in unbelief, so that He might show mercy to all.
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!
34  For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor?
35  Or who first gave to Him, and it will be repaid to him?
36  For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things; to Him be glory forever! Amen.

Rom 11:1-36, (NASB)
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.
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?
3  "Lord, they have killed Your prophets, they have torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they are seeking my life."
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."
5  In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time a remnant according to God's gracious choice.
6  But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.
7  What then? What Israel is seeking, it has not obtained, but those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened;
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."
9  And David says, "Let their table become a snare and a trap, And a stumbling block and a retribution to them.
10  "Let their eyes be darkened to see not, And bend their backs forever."
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.
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!
13  But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,
14  if somehow I might move to jealousy my fellow countrymen and save some of them.
15  For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
16  If the first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too.
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,
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.
19  You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in."
20  Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear;
21  for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either.
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.
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.
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?
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;
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."
27  "This is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins."
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;
29  for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.
30  For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience,
31  so these also now have been disobedient, that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy.
32  For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.
33  Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!
34  For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor?
35  Or who has first given to Him that it might be paid back to him again?
36  For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.

Rom 11:1-36, (LITV)
1  I say then, Did not God thrust away His people? Let it not be! For I also am an Israelite, out of Abraham's seed, of the tribe of Benjamin.
2  "God did not thrust away His people" whom He foreknew. Psa. 94:14 Or do you not know what the Scripture said in Elijah, how he pleaded with God against Israel, saying,
3  Lord, "they killed Your prophets," "and they dug down Your altars," "and only I am left, and they seek my life." 1 Kg. 19:10
4  But what does the Divine answer say to him, "I reserved to Myself seven thousand men who did not bow a knee to Baal." 1 Kg. 19:18
5  So then, also in the present time a remnant according to election of grace has come into being.
6  But if by grace, no longer is it of works; else grace no longer becomes grace. But if of works, it is no longer grace; else work is no longer work.
7  What then? What Israel seeks, this it did not obtain, but the election obtained it, and the rest were hardened;
8  even as it has been written, "God gave to them a spirit of slumber, eyes not seeing and ears not hearing" until this day. Isa. 29:10; Deut. 29:4
9  And David said, "Let their table become for a snare and a trap, and for a stumbling block," and a repayment to them;
10  "let their eyes be darkened, not to see, and their back always bowing." LXX-68:23, 24; MT-Psa. 69:22, 23
11  I say, then, Did not they stumble that they fall? Let it not be! But by their slipping away came salvation to the nations, to provoke them to jealousy.
12  But if their slipping away is the riches of the world, and their default the riches of the nations, how much more their fullness?
13  For I speak to you, the nations, since I am an apostle of the nations, (I glorify my ministry),
14  if somehow I may provoke to jealousy my flesh, and may save some of them.
15  For if their casting away is the reconciliation of the world, what is the reception, except life from the dead?
16  Now if the firstfruit is holy, so also the lump. And if the root is holy, so also the branches.
17  But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree were grafted in among them, and became a sharer of the root and the fatness of the olive tree,
18  do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, it is not you that bears the root, but the root bears you.
19  You will say then, The branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.
20  Well! For unbelief they were broken off. And you stand by faith. Do not be highminded, but fear.
21  For if God did not spare the natural branches, fear that it may be He will not spare you either.
22  Behold, then, the kindness and severity of God: On those having fallen, severity. But on you, kindness, if you continue in the kindness. Otherwise, you will also be cut off.
23  And those also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in. For God is able to graft them in again.
24  For if you were cut out of the natural wild olive tree, and against nature were grafted into a good olive tree, how much more these being according to nature will be grafted into their own olive tree?
25  For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be wise within yourselves, that hardness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the nations comes in;
26  and so all Israel will be saved, even as it has been written, "The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.
27  And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins." Isa. 59:20, 21
28  Indeed, as regards the gospel, ones hostile toward you, but as regards the election, beloved for the sake of the fathers.
29  For the free gifts and the calling of God are unregrettable.
30  For as you then also disobeyed God, but now have obtained mercy by the disobedience of these,
31  so also these now have disobeyed, so that they also may obtain mercy by your mercy.
32  For God shut up all into disobedience, that He may show mercy to all.
33  O the depth of the riches and of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
34  "For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who became His counselor?" Isa. 40:13
35  "Or who first gave to Him, and it will be repaid to him?" Job 41:11
36  Because of Him, and through Him, and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.
