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.
