Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 9:27


9:27 But Isaiah testifies, that (as many gentiles will be accepted, so) many Jews will be rejected; that out of all the thousands of Israel, a remnant only shall be saved. This was spoken originally of the few that were saved from the ravage of Sennacherib's army. #Isa 10:22|,23


People's Bible Notes for Romans 9:27


Ro 9:27 Esaias also crieth. See Isa 10:22. Not only do the prophets show that the Gentiles are to be called, but that a great part of Israel is to fall from God. The passage says that though the people of Israel become numerous as the sands of the seashore, only "a remnant shall be saved". This prophecy originally applies to the return of the Jews from the Captivity, but, like many other prophecies, has a double application.

Discussion for Romans 9:27

  • Abnermoon for verse 27
    This passage has to do with salvation Though the children of God are so numerous only a remnant will be saved This tells you that the vast majority will not be saved Why Because they are deceived They follow another Jesus another gospel another spirit They have not discerned the truth of scripture and have fallen prey to false doctrine The traditions of men and the commentary of grievous wolves have led these children of God to the fire Few be saved
