“For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.”
King James Version (KJV)
9:28 For he is finishing or cutting short his account - In rigorous justice, will leave but a small remnant. There will be so general a destruction, that but a small number will escape.
Ro 9:28 For he will finish the work. This verse, quoted from Isa 10:23, shows why only a remnant will be left. God's righteous judgment will cut the rest off from his favor.
