Bible: Romans 9:2-5
9:2 I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. 1 9:3 For I could wish 2 that I myself were accursed – cut off from Christ – for the sake of my people, 3 my fellow countrymen, 4 9:4 who are Israelites. To them belong 5 the adoption as sons, 6 the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the temple worship, 7 and the promises. 9:5 To them belong the patriarchs, 8 and from them, 9 by human descent, 10 came the Christ, 11 who is God over all, blessed forever! 12 Amen.
