Bible: Romans 9:3-4

9:3 For I could wish 1  that I myself were accursed – cut off from Christ – for the sake of my people, 2  my fellow countrymen, 3  9:4 who are Israelites. To them belong 4  the adoption as sons, 5  the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the temple worship, 6  and the promises.
