Romans 9:17-19 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)

17 So God is kind to any person if he wants to be kind to him. And God makes a man's heart hard if he wants to do that.

18 So you will ask me, `Why does God still blame us? Who can fight against what God has planned?'

19 But you are only a man. Will you tell God what to do? Can the pot say to the man who made it, `Why did you make me like this?'

Romans 9:17-19 New International Version (NIV)

17 For Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”[a] 18 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.

19 One of you will say to me: “Then why does God still blame us? For who is able to resist his will?”
