A Sermon on Romans 11:7-10

What then? Israel failed to obtain what it was seeking. The elect obtained it, but the rest were hardened, as it is written,

“God gave them a spirit of stupor,
eyes that would not see
and ears that would not hear,
down to this very day.”


And David says,

“Let their table become a snare and a trap,
a stumbling block and a retribution for them;
let their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see,
and bend their backs forever.” (ESV)

The lesson of the imprecatory psalms; objections to them stated; the place of the Old Testament; the inspiration of the Scriptures; David's character vindicated; punishment; the justice of God.
