“And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,”
King James Version (KJV)
9:23 That he might make known - What if by showing such longsuffering even to the vessels of wrath, he did the more abundantly show the greatness of his glorious goodness, wisdom, and power, on the vessels of mercy; on those whom he had himself, by his grace, prepared for glory. Is this any injustice?
Ro 9:23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory. What if God endured vessels fitted for destruction, was there wrong in this? (Ro 9:22). What if he thus made known the riches of his glory on vessels of mercy, was there wrong in this? The vessels of mercy. Both Gentile and Jewish believers. Which he had afore prepared unto glory. The preparation referred to is not that of individuals for eternal life, but the preparation made was to save the Gentiles as well as Jews. Ro 9:24 shows what is meant.
