Bible: Romans 9:6-8

9:6 It is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all those who are descended from Israel are truly Israel, 1  9:7 nor are all the children Abraham’s true descendants; ratherthrough Isaac will your descendants be counted.” 2  9:8 This means 3  it is not the children of the flesh 4  who are the children of God; rather, the children of promise are counted as descendants.
