Rom. 9:1 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Gregory Thaumaturgus A Sectional Confession of Faith

And again: "I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost."[49]

Rom. 9:1 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

"I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost."[334]

Rom. 9:3 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also Paul to the Romans: "I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren and my kindred according to the flesh: who are Israel-ires: whose are the adoption, and the glory, and the covenant, and the appointment of the law, and the service (of God), and the promises; whose are the fathers, of whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is God over all, blessed for evermore."[167]

Rom. 9:4 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

For although the Jew withal be called "a son," and an "elder one," inasmuch as he had priority in adoption;[89]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in 1 Clement

have sprung the priests and all the Levites who minister at the altar of God. From him also [was descended] our Lord Jesus Christ according to the flesh.[131]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

And again, writing to the Romans about Israel, he says: "Whose are the fathers, and from whom is Christ according to the flesh, who is God over all, blessed for ever."[270]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

just as Christ was sold by Israel-(and therefore, ) "according to the flesh," by His "brethren"[204]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

," as the same apostle says: "Of whom is Christ, who is over all, God blessed for ever."[152]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Dogmatical and Historical Fragments

Let us look next at the apostle's word: "Whose are the fathers, of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever."[216]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Dogmatical and Historical Fragments

and goeth to the Father."[233]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

and if, besides, the Apostle Paul says, "Whose are the fathers, and of whom Christ came according to the flesh, who is over all, God blessed for evermore,"[93]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

And, "Whose are the fathers, and of whom according to the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for evermore."[279]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius Oration Concerning Simeon and Anna

of the gods, but which teaches us the wondrous condescension to us men of the awful glory of Him who is God over all.[12]

Rom. 9:5 - NIV, NAB - in 1 Clement

have sprung the priests and all the Levites who minister at the altar of God. From him also [was descended] our Lord Jesus Christ according to the flesh.[160]

Rom. 9:10 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

from the Word, "that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him that calleth, it was said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people are in thy body; and the one people shall overcome the other, and the eider shall serve the younger."[319]

Rom. 9:10 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

For thus unto Rebecca did God speak: "Two nations are in thy womb, and two peoples shall be divided from thy bowels; and people shall overcome people, and the greater shall serve the less."[8]

Rom. 9:10 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

if the order of each people as intimated from Rebecca's womb[97]

Rom. 9:11 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

But even holy Scripture does not appear to me to be altogether silent on the nature of this secret, as when the Apostle Paul, in discussing the case of Jacob and Esau, says: "For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him who calleth, it was said, The elder shall serve the younger, as it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated."[167]

Rom. 9:11 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book II

l my eighth, and I am Israel and archangel of the power of the Lord and a chief captain among the sons of God? Am not I Israel, the first minister in the sight of God, and I invoked my God by the inextinguishable name? "It is likely that this was really said by Jacob, and was therefore written down, and that there is also a deeper meaning in what we are told, "He supplanted his brother in the womb." Consider whether the celebrated question about Jacob and Esau has a solution. We read,[99]

Rom. 9:13 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Our God, one and the same, is also their God, who knows hidden things, who knoweth all things before they can come to pass; and for this reason has He said, "Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated."[320]

Rom. 9:14 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book IV

"For there is no unrighteousness with God,"[256]

Rom. 9:14 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book I

How could his soul and its images be formed along with his body, who, before he was created in the womb, is said to be known to God, and was sanctified by Him before his birth? Some, perhaps, may think that God fills individuals with His Holy Spirit, and bestows upon them sanctification, not on grounds of justice and according to their deserts; but undeservedly. And how shall we escape that declaration: "Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid!"[122]

Rom. 9:15 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book IV

"For I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy,"[39]

Rom. 9:16 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

The words, moreover, used by the Apostle Paul, that "it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy; "[67]

Rom. 9:16 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

The passage also in Paul: "It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy."[73]

Rom. 9:16 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Let us now look to the expression, "It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy."[176]

Rom. 9:16 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Having now repelled these objections by the answer which we have given, let us hasten on to the discussion of the subject itself, in which it is said, "It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy."[179]

Rom. 9:16 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Let us look next at the passage: "So, then, it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy."[186]

Rom. 9:16 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Such, then, is the defence which I think we can offer to the statement, that "it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy."[194]

Rom. 9:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Thou wilt say then unto me, Why cloth He yet find fault? For who shall resist His will? O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him who hath formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another to dishonour?[69]

Rom. 9:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Let us begin, then, with those words which were spoken to Pharaoh, who is said to have been hardened by God, in order that he might not let the people go; and, along with his case, the language of the apostle also will be considered, where he says, "Therefore He hath mercy on whom He will, and whom He will He hardeneth."[77]

Rom. 9:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Let us begin, then, with what is said about Pharaoh-that he was hardened by God, that he might not send away the people; along with which will be examined also the statement of the apostle, "Therefore hath He mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He hardeneth."[81]

Rom. 9:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

of Scripture in which it is said that God hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and agreeably to the statement, "He hath mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He hardeneth."[146]

Rom. 9:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

of Scripture in which it is said that God hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and agreeably to the statement, "He hath mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will He hardeneth."[153]

Rom. 9:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth He yet find fault? For who hath resisted His will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? "[219]

Rom. 9:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth He yet find fault? For who hath resisted His will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? "[224]

Rom. 9:18 - NIV, NAB - in Word and Revelation of Esdras

but whom Thou wilt Thou savest, and whom Thou wilt Thou destroyest.[11]

Rom. 9:20 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

In the same way the potter, too, has it in his power, by tempering the blast of his fire, to modify his clayey material into a stiffer one, and to mould one form after another more beautiful than the original substance, and now possessing both a kind and name of its own. For although the Scripture says, "Shall the clay say to the potter? "[52]

Rom. 9:20 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

"Nay, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that hath formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? "[76]

Rom. 9:25 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book I

and proclaim in what sense [God] says, "`That is a people who was not a people; and she is beloved who was not beloved; "[142]

Rom. 9:25 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

and Him who, by His Son Christ Jesus, has called us to the knowledge of Himself, from the worship of stones, so that those who were not a people were made a people, and she beloved who was not beloved[67]

Rom. 9:25 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said, This is not a people, there shall they be called the children of the living God."[313]

Rom. 9:25 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

no hope of salvation except it came to us from Him. For He called us when we were not,[14]

Rom. 9:25 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

and that we had no hope of salvation except it came to us from Him. For He called us when we were not,[8]

Rom. 9:28 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

to a compendious formula, because (as it was predicted in another passage) the Lord-that is, Christ" was to make (or utter) a concise word on earth."[610]

Rom. 9:32 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

of the passion itself should be figuratively set forth in predictions; and the more incredible (that mystery), the more likely to be "a stumbling-stone,"[199]

Rom. 9:32 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

and knowing how to bear infirmity: "to wit as having been set by the Father "for a stone of offence,"[322]

Rom. 9:33 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

Was it because Christ was both a rock and a stone? For we read of His being placed "for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence."[445]
