Revised Young's Literal Translation

New Testament



9:1Truth I say in Christ, I lie not, my conscience bearing testimony with me in the Holy Spirit,
9:2that I have great grief and unceasing pain in my heart --
9:3for I was wishing, I myself, to be anathema from the Christ -- for my brethren, my kindred, according to the flesh,
9:4who are Israelites, whose is the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the lawgiving, and the service, and the promises,
9:5whose are the fathers, and of whom is the Christ, according to the flesh, who is over all, God blessed to the ages. Amen.
9:6And it is not possible that the word of God has failed; for not all who are of Israel are these Israel;
9:7nor because they are seed of Abraham are all children, but -- 'in Isaac shall a seed be called to you;'
9:8that is, the children of the flesh -- these are not children of God; but the children of the promise are reckoned for seed;
9:9for the word of promise is this; 'According to this time I will come, and there shall be to Sarah a son.'
9:10And not only so, but also Rebecca, having conceived by one -- Isaac our father --
9:11(for they being not yet born, neither having done anything good or evil, that the purpose of God, according to choice, might remain; not of works, but of Him who is calling,) it was said to her --
9:12'The greater shall serve the less;'
9:13according as it has been written, 'Jacob I did love, and Esau I did hate.'
9:14What, then, shall we say? unrighteousness is with God? let it not be!
9:15for to Moses He says, 'I will do kindness to whom I do kindness, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion;'
9:16so, then -- not of him who is willing, nor of him who is running, but of God who is doing kindness:
9:17for the Writing says to Pharaoh -- 'For this very thing I did raise you up, that I might show in you My power, and that My name might be declared in all the land;'
9:18so, then, to whom He wills, He does kindness, and to whom He wills, He does harden.
9:19You will say, then, to me, 'Why yet does He find fault? for His counsel who has resisted?'
9:20nay, but, O man, who are you that are answering again to God? shall the thing formed say to Him who did form it, Why me did you make thus?
9:21has not the potter authority over the clay, out of the same lump to make the one vessel to honour, and the one to dishonour?
9:22And if God, willing to show the wrath and to make known His power, did endure, in much long suffering, vessels of wrath fitted for destruction,
9:23and that He might make known the riches of His glory on vessels of kindness, that He before prepared for glory, whom also He did call -- us --
9:24not only out of Jews, but also out of nations,
9:25as also in Hosea He says, 'I will call what is not My people -- My people; and her not beloved -- Beloved,
9:26and 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 God.'
9:27And Isaiah does cry concerning Israel, 'If the number of the sons of Israel may be as the sand of the sea, the remnant shall be saved;
9:28for a matter He is finishing, and is cutting short in righteousness, because a matter cut short will the Lord do upon the land.
9:29and according as Isaiah says before, 'Except the Lord of Sabaoth did leave to us a seed, as Sodom we had become, and as Gomorrah we had been made like.'
9:30What, then, shall we say? that nations who are not pursuing righteousness did attain to righteousness, and righteousness that is of faith,
9:31and Israel, pursuing a law of righteousness, at a law of righteousness did not arrive;
9:32therefore? because -- not by faith, but as by works of law; for they did stumble at the stone of stumbling,
9:33according as it has been written, 'Lo, I place in Sion a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence; and every one who is believing thereon shall not be ashamed.'
