Bible: Romans 9:3-5
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. 9:5 To them belong the patriarchs, 7 and from them, 8 by human descent, 9 came the Christ, 10 who is God over all, blessed forever! 11 Amen.
