Context
The Calling of the Gentiles

19You will say then to me, Why does he yet find fault? For who has resisted his will? 20No but, O man, who are you that reply against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus? 21Has not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel to honor, and another to dishonor? 22What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much long-suffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had before prepared to glory, 24Even us, whom he has called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? 25As he said also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. 26And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said to them, You are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. 27Esaias also cries concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: 28For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make on the earth. 29And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like to Gomorrha.
