And even they – if they do not continue in their unbelief – will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again.
Then you will say, “The branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.”
For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these natural branches be grafted back into their own olive tree?
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,
do not boast over the branches. But if you boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.
Granted! 1 They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but fear!
Notice therefore the kindness and harshness of God – harshness toward those who have fallen, but 1 God’s kindness toward you, provided you continue in his kindness; 2 otherwise you also will be cut off.
