1 sn There is a double connective here that cannot be easily preserved in English: “consequently therefore,” emphasizing the conclusion of what he has been arguing.

2 tn Grk “he”; the referent (God) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Grk “So then, he has mercy on whom he desires, and he hardens whom he desires.”

4 tn Grk “vessels.” This is the same Greek word used in v. 21.
