Romans 11:22 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Goodness and severity (χρηστότητα καὶ ἀποτομίαν)

For goodness, see on Romans 3:12. Ἁποτομία severity, only here in the New Testament. The kindred adverb, ἀποτόμως sharply, occurs 2 Corinthians 13:10; Titus 1:13. From ἀποτέμνω to cut off. Hence that which is abrupt, sharp.

Thou shalt be cut off (ἐκκοπήσῃ)

Lit., cut out. See on Luke 13:7.
