Romans 9:26-28 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)

26 “And it shall be in the place where it was said to them ‘you are not My people’, there they will be called sons of the living God” [Hos 1:10].

But Only a Remnant of Israel Will Be Saved

27 But[a] Isaiah cries-out concerning Israel: “If the number of the sons of Israel should be like the sand of the sea, the remnant will be saved. 28 For the Lord will accomplish[b] His word upon the earth, completing[c] and cutting-short[d]” [in Isa 10:22-23].


  1. Romans 9:27 Here Paul proves that only a remnant of physical Israel would be saved.
  2. Romans 9:28 Or more specifically, execute His sentence; less specifically, carry-out the matter.
  3. Romans 9:28 That is, completing the judgment; or, carrying-out His word; or, closing the account.
  4. Romans 9:28 Or, cutting-down, cutting-off. Paul may mean cutting-short the nation, cutting it down to the remnant; or, cutting short the time, ‘quickly’.
