Bible: Romans 9:20-24
9:20 But who indeed are you – a mere human being 1 – to talk back to God? 2 Does what is molded say to the molder, “Why have you made me like this?” 3 9:21 Has the potter no right to make from the same lump of clay 4 one vessel for special use and another for ordinary use? 5 9:22 But what if God, willing to demonstrate his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience the objects 6 of wrath 7 prepared for destruction? 8 9:23 And what if he is willing to make known the wealth of his glory on the objects 9 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?
