Bible: Romans 9:15-24
9:19 You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who has ever resisted his will?” 9:20 But who indeed are you – a mere human being 9 – to talk back to God? 10 Does what is molded say to the molder, “Why have you made me like this?” 11 9:21 Has the potter no right to make from the same lump of clay 12 one vessel for special use and another for ordinary use? 13 9:22 But what if God, willing to demonstrate his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience the objects 14 of wrath 15 prepared for destruction? 16 9:23 And what if he is willing to make known the wealth of his glory on the objects 17 of mercy that he has prepared beforehand for glory – 9:24 even us, whom he has called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?
