Romans 11:21-23 The Passion Translation (TPT)

21 Since God didn’t spare the natural branches that fell into unbelief, perhaps he won’t spare you either!

22 So fix your gaze on the simultaneous kindness[a] and strict justice[b] of God. How severely he treated those who fell into unbelief! Yet how tender and kind is his relationship with you. So keep on trusting in his kindness; otherwise, you also will be cut off.

23 God is more than ready to graft back in the natural branches when they turn from clinging to their unbelief to embracing faith.

Footnotes:

  1. Romans 11:22 The Aramaic word for “kindness” can also be translated “sweetness.”
  2. Romans 11:22 The Greek word apotomia is used only here in the New Testament. It is a play on words, for apotomia is a homonym that can mean “strict justice” or “cut off.”
