Context
The Ingrafting of the Gentiles

11I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come to the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. 12Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fullness? 13For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify my office: 14If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. 15For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? 16For if the first fruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. 17And if some of the branches be broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18Boast not against the branches. But if you boast, you bore not the root, but the root you. 19You will say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. 20Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Be not high minded, but fear: 21For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not you. 22Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness: otherwise you also shall be cut off. 23And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. 24For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
