6 [a]And if it be of grace, it is [b]no more of works: or else were grace no more grace: but if it be of works, it is no more grace: or else were work no more work.
7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that he sought: but the election hath obtained it, and the rest have been [c]hardened,
8 [d]According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of [e]slumber: eyes that they [f]should not see, and ears that they should not hear unto this day.
Romans 11:6Although that all be not elect and chosen, yet let them that are elected, remember that they are freely chosen, and let them that stubbornly refuse the grace and free mercy of God, impute it unto themselves.
Romans 11:6This saying beateth down flat to the ground all the doctrine of all kinds and manner of works, whereby our justifiers of themselves do teach, that works are either wholly or partly the cause of our justification.
Romans 11:8And yet this hardness of heart cometh not but by God’s just decree and judgment, and yet without fault, whom as he so punisheth the unthankful by taking from them all sense and perseverance and by doubling their darkness, that the benefits of God which are offered unto them, do redound to their just destruction.
Romans 11:8A very dead sleep which taketh away all sense.
