11:25 For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, 1 so that you may not be conceited: A partial hardening has happened to Israel 2 until the full number 3 of the Gentiles has come in. 11:26 And so 4 all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
“The Deliverer will come out of Zion;
he will remove ungodliness from Jacob.
2 tn Or “Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.”
3 tn Grk “fullness.”
4 tn It is not clear whether the phrase καὶ οὕτως (kai Joutws, “and so”) is to be understood in a modal sense (“and in this way”) or in a temporal sense (“and in the end”). Neither interpretation is conclusive from a grammatical standpoint, and in fact the two may not be mutually exclusive. Some, like H. Hübner, who argue strongly against the temporal reading, nevertheless continue to give the phrase a temporal significance, saying that God will save all Israel in the end (Gottes Ich und Israel [FRLANT], 118).
