Romans 11:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

It is written

Three quotations follow, two of which we blended in this verse: Isaiah 29:10; Deuteronomy 29:3 (4).

Hath given (ὄδωκεν)

Heb., poured out. Sept., given to drink.

Slumber (κατανύξεως)

Heb., deep sleep. Only here in the New Testament. Lit., pricking or piercing, compunction. Compare the kindred verb κατενύγησαν were pricked, Acts 2:37. Rev. renders stupor, the secondary meaning; properly the stupefaction following a wound or blow.
