Romans 11:16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

16 [a]If the firstfruits are holy, so is the whole batch of dough; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

Footnotes:

  1. 11:16–24 Israel remains holy in the eyes of God and stands as a witness to the faith described in the Old Testament because of the firstfruits (or the first piece baked) (Rom 11:16), that is, the converted remnant, and the root that is holy, that is, the patriarchs (Rom 11:16). The Jews’ failure to believe in Christ is a warning to Gentile Christians to be on guard against any semblance of anti-Jewish arrogance, that is, failure to recognize their total dependence on divine grace.
