The Epistle of St. Paul the Apostle to the Romans

  Chapter 11  

11:1 I say then: Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

11:1 dico ergo numquid reppulit Deus populum suum absit nam et ego Israhelita sum ex semine Abraham tribu Beniamin

11:2 God hath not cast away his people, which he foreknew. Know you not what the scripture saith of Elias; how he calleth on God against Israel?

11:2 non reppulit Deus plebem suam quam praesciit an nescitis in Helia quid dicit scriptura quemadmodum interpellat Deum adversus Israhel

11:3 Lord, they have slain thy prophets, they have dug down thy altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

11:3 Domine prophetas tuos occiderunt altaria tua suffoderunt et ego relictus sum solus et quaerunt animam meam

11:4 But what saith the divine answer to him? I have left me seven thousand men, that have not bowed their knees to Baal.

11:4 sed quid dicit illi responsum divinum reliqui mihi septem milia virorum qui non curvaverunt genu Baal

11:5 Even so then at this present time also, there is a remnant saved according to the election of grace.

11:5 sic ergo et in hoc tempore reliquiae secundum electionem gratiae factae sunt

11:6 And if by grace, it is not now by works: otherwise grace is no more grace.

11:6 si autem gratia non ex operibus alioquin gratia iam non est gratia

11:7 What then? That which Israel sought, he hath not obtained: but the election hath obtained it; and the rest have been blinded.

11:7 quid ergo quod quaerebat Israhel hoc non est consecutus electio autem consecuta est ceteri vero excaecati sunt

11:8 As it is written: God hath given them the spirit of insensibility; eyes that they should not see; and ears that they should not hear, until this present day.

11:8 sicut scriptum est dedit illis Deus spiritum conpunctionis oculos ut non videant et aures ut non audiant usque in hodiernum diem

11:9 And David saith: Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompense unto them.

11:9 et David dicit fiat mensa eorum in laqueum et in captionem et in scandalum et in retributionem illis

11:10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see: and bow down their back always.

11:10 obscurentur oculi eorum ne videant et dorsum illorum semper incurva

11:11 I say then, have they so stumbled, that they should fall? God forbid. But by their offence, salvation is come to the Gentiles, that they may be emulous of them.

11:11 dico ergo numquid sic offenderunt ut caderent absit sed illorum delicto salus gentibus ut illos aemulentur

11:12 Now if the offence of them be the riches of the world, and the diminution of them, the riches of the Gentiles; how much more the fulness of them?

11:12 quod si delictum illorum divitiae sunt mundi et deminutio eorum divitiae gentium quanto magis plenitudo eorum

11:13 For I say to you, Gentiles: as long indeed as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I will honour my ministry,

11:13 vobis enim dico gentibus quamdiu quidem ego sum gentium apostolus ministerium meum honorificabo

11:14 If, by any means, I may provoke to emulation them who are my flesh, and may save some of them.

11:14 si quo modo ad aemulandum provocem carnem meam et salvos faciam aliquos ex illis

11:15 For if the loss of them be the reconciliation of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

11:15 si enim amissio eorum reconciliatio est mundi quae adsumptio nisi vita ex mortuis

11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, so is the lump also: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

11:16 quod si delibatio sancta est et massa et si radix sancta et rami

11:17 And if some of the branches be broken, and thou, being a wild olive, art ingrafted in them, and art made partaker of the root, and of the fatness of the olive tree,

11:17 quod si aliqui ex ramis fracti sunt tu autem cum oleaster esses insertus es in illis et socius radicis et pinguidinis olivae factus es

11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

11:18 noli gloriari adversus ramos quod si gloriaris non tu radicem portas sed radix te

11:19 Thou wilt say then: The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

11:19 dices ergo fracti sunt rami ut ego inserar

11:20 Well: because of unbelief they were broken off. But thou standest by faith: be not highminded, but fear.

11:20 bene propter incredulitatem fracti sunt tu autem fide stas noli altum sapere sed time

11:21 For if God hath not spared the natural branches, fear lest perhaps he also spare not thee.

11:21 si enim Deus naturalibus ramis non pepercit ne forte nec tibi parcat

11:22 See then the goodness and the severity of God: towards them indeed that are fallen, the severity; but towards thee, the goodness of God, if thou abide in goodness, otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

11:22 vide ergo bonitatem et severitatem Dei in eos quidem qui ceciderunt severitatem in te autem bonitatem Dei si permanseris in bonitate alioquin et tu excideris

11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.

11:23 sed et illi si non permanserint in incredulitate inserentur potens est enim Deus iterum inserere illos

11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the wild olive tree, which is natural to thee; and, contrary to nature, were grafted into the good olive tree; how much more shall they that are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

11:24 nam si tu ex naturali excisus es oleastro et contra naturam insertus es in bonam olivam quanto magis hii secundum naturam inserentur suae olivae

11:25 For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, of this mystery, (lest you should be wise in your own conceits), that blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles should come in.

11:25 nolo enim vos ignorare fratres mysterium hoc ut non sitis vobis ipsis sapientes quia caecitas ex parte contigit in Israhel donec plenitudo gentium intraret

11:26 And so all Israel should be saved, as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, he that shall deliver, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.

11:26 et sic omnis Israhel salvus fieret sicut scriptum est veniet ex Sion qui eripiat avertet impietates ab Iacob

11:27 And this is to them my covenant: when I shall take away their sins.

11:27 et hoc illis a me testamentum cum abstulero peccata eorum

11:28 As concerning the gospel, indeed, they are enemies for your sake: but as touching the election, they are most dear for the sake of the fathers.

11:28 secundum evangelium quidem inimici propter vos secundum electionem autem carissimi propter patres

11:29 For the gifts and the calling of God are without repentance.

11:29 sine paenitentia enim sunt dona et vocatio Dei

11:30 For as you also in times past did not believe God, but now have obtained mercy, through their unbelief;

11:30 sicut enim aliquando et vos non credidistis Deo nunc autem misericordiam consecuti estis propter illorum incredulitatem

11:31 So these also now have not believed, for your mercy, that they also may obtain mercy.

11:31 ita et isti nunc non crediderunt in vestram misericordiam ut et ipsi misericordiam consequantur

11:32 For God hath concluded all in unbelief, that he may have mercy on all.

11:32 conclusit enim Deus omnia in incredulitatem ut omnium misereatur

11:33 O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are his judgments, and how unsearchable his ways!

11:33 o altitudo divitiarum sapientiae et scientiae Dei quam inconprehensibilia sunt iudicia eius et investigabiles viae eius

11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counsellor?

11:34 quis enim cognovit sensum Domini aut quis consiliarius eius fuit

11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and recompense shall be made him?

11:35 aut quis prior dedit illi et retribuetur ei

11:36 For of him, and by him, and in him, are all things: to him be glory for ever. Amen.

11:36 quoniam ex ipso et per ipsum et in ipso omnia ipsi gloria in saecula amen
