1 This is the truth and I am speaking in Christ, without pretence, as my conscience testifies for me in the Holy Spirit;
1Tim 2:7  Gal 1:20  Rom 1:9  2Cor 11:10  2Cor 12:19  Rom 8:16  1John 3:19-21 

2 there is great sorrow and unremitting agony in my heart:
Ezek 9:4  Jer 13:17  Lam 3:51  Luke 19:41-44  Phil 3:18  Ps 119:136  1Sam 15:35 

3 I could pray that I myself might be accursed and cut off from Christ, if this could benefit the brothers who are my own flesh and blood.
Exod 32:32  Gal 1:8  1Cor 12:3  1Cor 16:22  Gal 3:13  Rom 11:14  1Sam 14:24 

4 They are Israelites; it was they who were adopted as children, the glory was theirs and the covenants; to them were given the Law and the worship of God and the promises.
Eph 2:12  Ps 147:19  Gen 17:2  Exod 4:22  1Kgs 8:11  Rom 9:6  Heb 9:1 

5 To them belong the fathers and out of them, so far as physical descent is concerned, came Christ who is above all, God, blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:25  Col 1:16-19  John 1:1-3  Isa 7:14  John 10:30  1John 5:20  Isa 11:1 

6 It is not that God's promise has failed. Not all born Israelites belong to Israel,
Gal 6:16  Rom 2:28-29  John 1:47  Num 23:19  Heb 6:17-18  Rom 3:3  Rom 4:12-16 

7 and not all the descendants of Abraham count as his children, for Isaac is the one through whom your Name will be carried on.
Gen 21:12  Heb 11:18  John 8:37-39  Gal 4:23  John 8:33  Luke 3:8  Luke 16:24-25 

8 That is, it is not by being children through physical descent that people become children of God; it is the children of the promise that are counted as the heirs.
Gal 3:26-29  John 1:13  Rom 4:11-16  Rom 8:14  1John 3:1-2  Gal 4:22-31  Gen 31:15 

9 The actual words of the promise were: I shall come back to you at this season, and Sarah will have a son.
Gen 18:10  Gen 18:14  Gen 17:21  Gen 21:2  Heb 11:11-12  Heb 11:17 

10 Even more to the point is what was said to Rebecca when she was pregnant by our ancestor, Isaac,
Rom 5:3  Gen 25:21-23  Luke 16:26  Rom 5:11 

11 before her children were born, so that neither had yet done anything either good or bad, but in order that it should be God's choice which prevailed
Rom 4:17  1Pet 5:10  2Pet 1:10  2Thess 2:13-14  Eph 1:4-5  Eph 1:9-11  Rev 17:14 

12 -not human merit, but his call -- she was told: the elder one will serve the younger.
Gen 25:22-23  1Kgs 22:47  2Sam 8:14 

13 Or as scripture says elsewhere: I loved Jacob but hated Esau.
Mal 1:2-3  Deut 21:15  Gen 29:33  Gen 29:31  Luke 14:26  Matt 10:37  Prov 13:24 

14 What should we say, then? That God is unjust? Out of the question!
2Chr 19:7  Deut 32:4  Ps 145:17  Job 8:3  Job 34:10-12  Ps 92:15  Rev 16:7 

15 For speaking to Moses, he said: I am gracious to those to whom I am gracious and I take pity on those on whom I take pity.
Exod 33:19  Rom 9:16  Rom 9:18-19  Isa 27:11  Mic 7:18  Exod 34:6-7 

16 So it is not a matter of what any person wants or what any person does, but only of God having mercy.
John 1:12-13  1Cor 1:26-31  1Pet 2:9-10  Eph 2:4-5  Eph 2:8  Isa 65:1  Jas 1:18 

17 Scripture says to Pharaoh: I raised you up for this reason, to display my power in you and to have my name talked of throughout the world.
Exod 9:16  Prov 16:4  John 17:26  1Sam 2:7-8  1Sam 4:8  Dan 4:22  Dan 5:18-21 

18 In other words, if God wants to show mercy on someone, he does so, and if he wants to harden someone's heart, he does so.
Rom 9:15-16  Exod 4:21  Josh 11:20  2Thess 2:10-12  Deut 2:30  Rom 11:7-8  Rom 5:20-21 

19 Then you will ask me, 'How then can he ever blame anyone, since no one can oppose his will?'
Dan 4:35  2Chr 20:6  1Cor 15:35  1Cor 15:12  Acts 2:23  Acts 4:27-28  Gen 50:20 

20 But you -- who do you think you, a human being, are, to answer back to God? Something that was made, can it say to its maker: why did you make me this shape?
Isa 29:16  Isa 45:9-11  Isa 64:8  Job 33:13  1Tim 6:5  Job 16:3  Job 36:23 

21 A potter surely has the right over his clay to make out of the same lump either a pot for special use or one for ordinary use.
Isa 64:8  2Tim 2:20-21  Acts 9:15  Jer 18:3-6  Rom 9:11  Rom 9:18  Rom 9:22-23 

22 But suppose that God, although all the time he wanted to reveal his retribution and demonstrate his power, has with great patience gone on putting up with those who are the instruments of his retribution and designed to be destroyed;
Prov 16:4  Jude 1:4  1Pet 2:8  Rom 9:21  2Tim 2:20  Exod 9:16  1Thess 2:16 

23 so that he may make known the glorious riches ready for the people who are the instruments of his faithful love and were long ago prepared for that glory.
Rom 2:4  Eph 3:16  1Pet 1:2-5  1Chr 29:18  1Thess 5:9  2Thess 1:10-12  2Thess 2:13-14 

24 We are that people, called by him not only out of the Jews but out of the gentiles too.
Col 3:11  1Cor 1:9  1Pet 5:10  Acts 13:47-48  Acts 15:14  Acts 21:17-20  Eph 2:11-13 

25 Just as he says in the book of Hosea: I shall tell those who were not my people, 'You are my people,' and I shall take pity on those on whom I had no pity.
Hos 2:23  1Pet 2:10  Ezek 16:8  Hos 1:1-2  John 16:27  Rom 1:7 

26 And in the very place where they were told, 'You are not my people,' they will be told that they are 'children of the living God'.
1John 3:1-3  2Cor 6:18  Gal 3:26  Hos 1:9-10  Isa 43:6  John 11:52  Matt 16:16 

27 And about Israel, this is what Isaiah cried out: Though the people of Israel are like the sand of the sea, only a remnant will be saved;
Isa 10:20-23  Rom 11:4-6  Hos 1:10  Isa 1:9  Jer 5:10  Ezek 6:8  Gen 22:17 

28 for without hesitation or delay the Lord will execute his sentence on the earth.
Isa 10:23  Acts 17:31  Dan 9:26-27  Isa 5:16  Isa 28:22  Isa 30:12-14  Matt 24:21 

29 As Isaiah foretold: Had the Lord Sabaoth not left us a few survivors, we should be like Sodom, we should be the same as Gomorrah.
Isa 1:9  Isa 13:19  Jas 5:4  Jer 50:40  Amos 4:11  Jer 49:18  Deut 29:23 

30 What should we say, then? That the gentiles, although they were not looking for saving justice, found it, and this was the saving justice that comes of faith;
Heb 11:7  Phil 3:9  Rom 4:11  Gal 2:16  Rom 9:14  Rom 10:6  Rom 10:20 

31 while Israel, looking for saving justice by law-keeping, did not succeed in fulfilling the Law.
Rom 11:7  Gal 3:10-11  Gal 3:21  Gal 5:3-4  Isa 51:1  Jas 2:10-11  Phil 3:6 

32 And why? Because they were trying to find it in actions and not in faith, and so they stumbled over the stumbling-stone-
1Cor 1:23  1Pet 2:8  Acts 16:30-34  1John 5:9-12  John 6:27-29  Luke 2:34  Luke 7:23 

33 as it says in scripture: Now I am laying in Zion a stumbling-stone, a rock to trip people up; but he who relies on this will not be brought to disgrace.
Isa 28:16  Rom 10:11  Joel 2:26-27  Ps 25:2-3  Rom 5:5  1Pet 2:6-8  Ps 118:22
