Romans 11:17-22

Context

11:17 Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among them and participated in 1  the richness of the olive root, 11:18 do not boast over the branches. But if you boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you. 11:19 Then you will say, “The branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” 11:20 Granted! 2  They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but fear! 11:21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, perhaps he will not spare you. 11:22 Notice therefore the kindness and harshness of God – harshness toward those who have fallen, but 3  God’s kindness toward you, provided you continue in his kindness; 4  otherwise you also will be cut off.

1 tn Grk “became a participant of.”

2 tn Grk “well!”, an adverb used to affirm a statement. It means “very well,” “you are correct.”

3 tn Greek emphasizes the contrast between these two clauses more than can be easily expressed in English.

4 tn Grk “if you continue in (the) kindness.”
