Romans 11:14: If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
Romans 11:15: For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
Romans 11:16: For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
Romans 11:17: And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
Romans 11:18: Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
Romans 11:19: Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.
Romans 11:20: Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
Romans 11:21: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
Romans 11:22: Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
Romans 11:23: And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
Romans 11:24: For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?
