Romans 9:15-24

15For he says to Moses, a“I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” 16So then it depends not on human will or exertion,
Greek  not of him who wills or runs
but on God, who has mercy.
17For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, cFor this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” 18So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills.

19You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For dwho can resist his will?” 20But who are you, O man, eto answer back to God? fWill what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” 21 gHas the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump hone vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? 22What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience ivessels of wrath jprepared for destruction, 23in order to make known kthe riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he lhas prepared beforehand for glory 24even us whom he mhas called, nnot from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles?
