kjv@Romans:9:13@ As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
kjv@Romans:9:14@ What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
kjv@Romans:9:15@ For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
kjv@Romans:9:16@ So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
kjv@Romans:9:17@ For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
kjv@Romans:9:18@ Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
kjv@Romans:9:19@ Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
kjv@Romans:9:20@ Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
kjv@Romans:9:21@ Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
kjv@Romans:9:22@ What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
kjv@Romans:9:23@ And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
kjv@Romans:9:24@ Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
kjv@Romans:9:25@ As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.
kjv@Romans:9:26@ And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.
kjv@Romans:9:27@ Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:
kjv@Romans:9:28@ For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
kjv@Romans:9:29@ And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.
