Romans 9:1–3; Romans 10:1

God’s Sovereign Choice

aI am speaking the truth in ChristI am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For bI could wish that I myself were caccursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers,1 my kinsmen daccording to the flesh.

10 Brothers,1 my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.
