“Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?”
King James Version (KJV)
9:24 Even us - Here the apostle comes to the other proposition, of grace free for all, whether Jew or gentile. Of the Jews - This he treats of, #Ro 9:25|. Of the gentiles - Treated of in the same verse.
Ro 9:24 Even us, whom he hath called. He "endured the vessels of wrath" (Ro 9:22) that he might make known his mercy in calling both Jews and Gentiles. The destruction of the Jewish nation, predicted by the Savior in Mt 24:2, was delayed in mercy until tens of thousands of Jews, as well as of Gentiles, accepted Christ (Mt 24:22). The whole passage shows that God suffered the sins of the Jewish nation, without cutting it off, because its existence was essential in his plans for saving the world. Of it Christ came. From it the apostles were chosen. In it the church was formed, and from it went forth the gospel preachers.
