1I speak the truth in Christ; I am not lying, as confirmed by my conscience in the Holy Spirit.1Ἀλήθειαν λέγω ἐν Χριστῷ οὐ ψεύδομαι συμμαρτυρούσης μοι τῆς συνειδήσεώς μου ἐν Πνεύματι Ἁγίῳ
2I have deep sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart.2ὅτι λύπη μοί ἐστιν μεγάλη καὶ ἀδιάλειπτος ὀδύνη τῇ καρδίᾳ μου
3For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my own flesh and blood,3ηὐχόμην γὰρ ἀνάθεμα εἶναι αὐτὸς ἐγὼ ἀπὸ τοῦ Χριστοῦ ὑπὲρ τῶν ἀδελφῶν μου τῶν συγγενῶν μου κατὰ σάρκα
4the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory and the covenants; theirs the giving of the law, the temple worship, and the promises.4οἵτινές εἰσιν Ἰσραηλῖται ὧν υἱοθεσία καὶ δόξα καὶ αἱ διαθῆκαι καὶ νομοθεσία καὶ λατρεία καὶ αἱ ἐπαγγελίαι
5Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them proceeds the human descent of Christ, who is God over all, forever worthy of praise! Amen.5ὧν οἱ πατέρες καὶ ἐξ ὧν Χριστὸς τὸ κατὰ σάρκα ὢν ἐπὶ πάντων Θεὸς εὐλογητὸς εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας ἀμήν
6It is not as though God’s word has failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel.6Οὐχ οἷον δὲ ὅτι ἐκπέπτωκεν λόγος τοῦ Θεοῦ οὐ γὰρ πάντες οἱ ἐξ Ἰσραήλ οὗτοι Ἰσραήλ
7Nor because they are Abraham’s descendants are they all his children. On the contrary, “Through Isaac your offspring will be reckoned.”7οὐδ’ ὅτι εἰσὶν σπέρμα Ἀβραάμ πάντες τέκνα ἀλλ’ Ἐν Ἰσαὰκ κληθήσεταί σοι σπέρμα
8So it is not the children of the flesh who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as offspring.8τοῦτ’ ἔστιν οὐ τὰ τέκνα τῆς σαρκὸς ταῦτα τέκνα τοῦ Θεοῦ ἀλλὰ τὰ τέκνα τῆς ἐπαγγελίας λογίζεται εἰς σπέρμα
9For this is what the promise stated: “At the appointed time I will return, and Sarah will have a son.”9ἐπαγγελίας γὰρ λόγος οὗτος Κατὰ τὸν καιρὸν τοῦτον ἐλεύσομαι καὶ ἔσται τῇ Σάρρᾳ υἱός
10Not only that, but Rebecca’s children were conceived by one man, our father Isaac.10Οὐ μόνον δέ ἀλλὰ καὶ Ῥεβέκκα ἐξ ἑνὸς κοίτην ἔχουσα Ἰσαὰκ τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν
11Yet before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad, in order that God’s plan of election might stand,11μήπω γὰρ γεννηθέντων μηδὲ πραξάντων τι ἀγαθὸν φαῦλον ἵνα κατ’ ἐκλογὴν πρόθεσις τοῦ Θεοῦ μένῃ
12not by works but by Him who calls, she was told, “The older will serve the younger.”12οὐκ ἐξ ἔργων ἀλλ’ ἐκ τοῦ καλοῦντος ἐρρέθη αὐτῇ ὅτι μείζων δουλεύσει τῷ ἐλάσσονι
13So it is written: “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”13καθὼς* γέγραπται Τὸν Ἰακὼβ ἠγάπησα τὸν δὲ Ἠσαῦ ἐμίσησα
14What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Certainly not!14Τί οὖν ἐροῦμεν μὴ ἀδικία παρὰ τῷ θεῷ μὴ γένοιτο
15For He says to Moses: “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”15τῷ Μωϋσεῖ γὰρ λέγει Ἐλεήσω ὃν ἂν ἐλεῶ καὶ οἰκτιρήσω* ὃν ἂν οἰκτίρω*
16So then, it does not depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.16Ἄρα οὖν οὐ τοῦ θέλοντος οὐδὲ τοῦ τρέχοντος ἀλλὰ τοῦ ἐλεῶντος Θεοῦ
17For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display My power in you, and that My name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”17λέγει γὰρ γραφὴ τῷ Φαραὼ ὅτι Εἰς αὐτὸ τοῦτο ἐξήγειρά σε ὅπως ἐνδείξωμαι ἐν σοὶ τὴν δύναμίν μου καὶ ὅπως διαγγελῇ τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ
18Therefore God has mercy on whom He wants to have mercy, and He hardens whom He wants to harden.18ἄρα οὖν ὃν θέλει ἐλεεῖ ὃν δὲ θέλει σκληρύνει
19One of you will say to me, “Then why does God still find fault? For who can resist His will?”19Ἐρεῖς μοι οὖν Τί ‹οὖν› ἔτι μέμφεται τῷ γὰρ βουλήματι αὐτοῦ τίς ἀνθέστηκεν
20But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? Shall what is formed say to Him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?”20 ἄνθρωπε μενοῦνγε σὺ τίς εἶ ἀνταποκρινόμενος τῷ Θεῷ μὴ ἐρεῖ τὸ πλάσμα τῷ πλάσαντι Τί με ἐποίησας οὕτως
21Does not the potter have the right to make from the same lump of clay one vessel for special occasions and another for common use?21 οὐκ ἔχει ἐξουσίαν κεραμεὺς τοῦ πηλοῦ ἐκ τοῦ αὐτοῦ φυράματος ποιῆσαι μὲν εἰς τιμὴν σκεῦος δὲ εἰς ἀτιμίαν
22What if God, intending to show His wrath and make His power known, bore with great patience the vessels of His wrath, prepared for destruction?22Εἰ δὲ θέλων Θεὸς ἐνδείξασθαι τὴν ὀργὴν καὶ γνωρίσαι τὸ δυνατὸν αὐτοῦ ἤνεγκεν ἐν πολλῇ μακροθυμίᾳ σκεύη ὀργῆς κατηρτισμένα εἰς ἀπώλειαν
23What if He did this to make the riches of His glory known to the vessels of His mercy, whom He prepared in advance for glory—23καὶ ἵνα γνωρίσῃ τὸν πλοῦτον τῆς δόξης αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ σκεύη ἐλέους προητοίμασεν εἰς δόξαν
24including us, whom He has called not only from the Jews, but also from the Gentiles?24οὓς καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ἡμᾶς οὐ μόνον ἐξ Ἰουδαίων ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐξ ἐθνῶν
25As He says in Hosea: “I will call them ’My People’ who are not My people, and I will call her ’My Beloved’ who is not My beloved,”25ὡς καὶ ἐν τῷ Ὡσηὲ λέγει Καλέσω τὸν οὐ λαόν μου λαόν μου καὶ τὴν οὐκ ἠγαπημένην ἠγαπημένην
26and, “It will happen that in the very place where it was said to them, ’You are not My people,’ they will be called ’sons of the living God.’”26Καὶ Ἔσται ἐν τῷ τόπῳ οὗ ἐρρέθη αὐτοῖς Οὐ λαός μου ὑμεῖς ἐκεῖ κληθήσονται Υἱοὶ Θεοῦ ζῶντος
27Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the Israelites is like the sand of the sea, only the remnant will be saved.27Ἠσαΐας δὲ κράζει ὑπὲρ τοῦ Ἰσραήλ Ἐὰν ἀριθμὸς τῶν υἱῶν Ἰσραὴλ ὡς ἄμμος τῆς θαλάσσης τὸ ὑπόλειμμα σωθήσεται
28For the Lord will carry out His sentence on the earth thoroughly and decisively.”28λόγον γὰρ συντελῶν καὶ συντέμνων ποιήσει Κύριος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς
29It is just as Isaiah foretold: “Unless the Lord of Hosts had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, we would have resembled Gomorrah.”29Καὶ καθὼς προείρηκεν Ἠσαΐας Εἰ μὴ Κύριος Σαβαὼθ ἐγκατέλιπεν ἡμῖν σπέρμα ὡς Σόδομα ἂν ἐγενήθημεν καὶ ὡς Γόμορρα ἂν ὡμοιώθημεν
30What then will we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith;30Τί οὖν ἐροῦμεν ὅτι ἔθνη τὰ μὴ διώκοντα δικαιοσύνην κατέλαβεν δικαιοσύνην δικαιοσύνην δὲ τὴν ἐκ πίστεως
31but Israel, who pursued a law of righteousness, has not attained it.31Ἰσραὴλ δὲ διώκων νόμον δικαιοσύνης εἰς νόμον οὐκ ἔφθασεν
32Why not? Because their pursuit was not by faith, but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone,32διὰ τί ὅτι οὐκ ἐκ πίστεως ἀλλ’ ὡς ἐξ ἔργων προσέκοψαν τῷ λίθῳ τοῦ προσκόμματος
33as it is written: “See, I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and the one who believes in Him will never be put to shame.”33καθὼς γέγραπται Ἰδοὺ τίθημι ἐν Σιὼν λίθον προσκόμματος καὶ πέτραν σκανδάλου καὶ πιστεύων ἐπ’ αὐτῷ οὐ καταισχυνθήσεται
