(20) Well, because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not high-minded, but fear. (21) For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee (25) Brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits, that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in."
