Romans 11:8-11

11:8 as it is written,

“God gave them a spirit of stupor,

eyes that would not see and ears that would not hear,

to this very day.” 1 

11:9 And David says,

“Let their table become a snare and trap,

a stumbling block and a retribution for them;

11:10 let their eyes be darkened so that they may not see,

and make their backs bend continually.” 2 

11:11 I ask then, they did not stumble into an irrevocable fall, 3  did they? Absolutely not! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make Israel 4  jealous.

1 sn A quotation from Deut 29:4; Isa 29:10.

2 sn A quotation from Ps 69:22-23.

3 tn Grk “that they might fall.”

4 tn Grk “them”; the referent (Israel, cf. 11:7) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
