Romiyim (Romans) 9:14-29


14  What, then, shall we say? Is there unrighteousness with Elohim? Let it not be!

15  For He says to Mosheh, "I shall favour whomever I favour, and I shall have compassion on whomever I have compassion."

16  So, then, it is not of him who is wanting, nor of him who is running, but of Elohim who shows favour.

17  For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "For this same purpose I have raised you up, to show My power in you, and that My Name be declared in all the earth."

18  So, then, He favours whom He wants, and He hardens whom He wants.

19  Then you shall say to me, "Why does He still find fault? For who has resisted His counsel?"

20  But who are you, O man, to talk back to Elohim? Shall that which is formed say to him who formed it, "Why have you made me like this?"

21  Does not the potter have authority over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for value and another not for value?

22  And if Elohim, desiring to show wrath, and to make His power known, with much patience tolerated the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,

23  and that He might make known the riches of His esteem on vessels of compassion, which He had prepared beforehand for esteem,

24  even whom He called, not only us of the Yahuḏim, but also of the gentiles?

25  As He says also in Hoshĕa, "I shall call them My people, who were not My people, and her beloved, who was not beloved."

26  "And it shall be in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,' there they shall be called sons of the living Elohim."

27  And Yeshayahu cries out on behalf of Yisra'ĕl, "Though the number of the children of Yisra'ĕl be as the sand of the sea, the remnant shall be saved.

28  For He is bringing a matter to an end, and is cutting it short in righteousness, because יהוה shall cut short a matter on the earth."

29  And as Yeshayahu said before, "If יהוה of hosts had not left us a seed, we would have become like Seḏom, and we would have been made like Amorah."
