Rom 9:15-23, (MKJV)
|15 ||For He said to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."|
|16 ||So then it is not of the one willing, nor of the one running, but of God, the One showing mercy.|
|17 ||For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "Even for this same purpose I have raised you up, that I might show My power in you, and that My name might be declared throughout all the earth."|
|18 ||Therefore He has mercy on whom He will have mercy , and whom He will, He hardens.|
|19 ||You will then say to me, Why does He yet find fault? For who has resisted His will?|
|20 ||No, but, O man, who are you who replies against God? Shall the thing formed say to Him who formed it , Why have you made me this way?|
|21 ||Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel to honor and another to dishonor?|
|22 || What if God, willing to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much long-suffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction;|
|23 ||and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy which He had before prepared to glory;|
