The Salvation of the Gentiles and of Israel who is Now Blinded
11 I demand then, Have they stumbled, that they should fall? God forbid. But through their fall, salvation cometh unto the Gentiles, to provoke them to follow them.
12 Wherefore if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles, how much more shall their abundance be?
13 For in that I speak to you Gentiles, in as much as I am the Apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify my office,
14 To try if by any means I might provoke them of my flesh to follow them, and might save some of them.
15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving be, but life from the dead?
16 For if the firstfruits be holy, so is the whole lump; and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
17 And though some of the branches be broken off, and thou being a wild Olive tree, wast grafted in for them, and made partaker of the root and fatness of the Olive tree;
18 Boast not thyself against the branches; and if thou boast thyself, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches are broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well, through unbelief they are 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 bountifulness, and severity of God, toward them which have fallen, severity, but toward thee, bountifulness, if thou continue in his bountifulness; or else thou shalt also be cut off.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For if thou wast cut out of the Olive tree, which was wild by nature, and wast grafted contrary to nature in a right Olive tree, how much more shall they that are by nature, be grafted in their own Olive tree?
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this secret (lest ye should be arrogant in yourselves) that partly obstinacy is come to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved, as it is written, The deliverer shall come out of Sion, and shall turn away the ungodliness from Jacob.
27 And this is my covenant to 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 fathers' sakes.
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30 For even as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31 Even so now have they not believed by the mercy shewed unto you, that they also may obtain mercy.
32 For God hath shut up all in unbelief, that he might have mercy on all.
33 O the deepness 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 was his counselor?
35 Or who hath given unto him first, and he shall be recompensed?
36 For of him, and through him, and for him are all things; to him be glory forever. Amen.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?

Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
