Scripture for this Lord’s Day

Romans 11:1-10
    I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. [2] God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah–how he appealed to God against Israel: [3] “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”? [4] And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” [5] So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. [6] And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
    [7] What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened, [8] as it is written:

    “God gave them a spirit of stupor,
        eyes so that they could not see
        and ears so that they could not hear,
    to this very day.”
 
[9] And David says:

    “May their table become a snare and a trap,
        a stumbling block and a retribution for them.
    [10] May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,
        and their backs be bent forever.”
