“What if some were unfaithful?
Will their faithlessness
The faithfulness of God?”
τί γάρ; εἰ ἠπίστησάν τινες, μὴ ἡ ἀπιστία αὐτῶν τὴν πίστιν τοῦ Θεοῦ καταργήσει;
Paul said that what if some were unfaithful (τί γάρ; εἰ ἠπίστησάν τινες)? Will their faithlessness (μὴ ἡ ἀπιστία αὐτῶν) nullify (καταργήσει) the faithfulness or trust of God (τὴν πίστιν τοῦ Θεοῦ)? Paul responded that the faithlessness of a few Jews will not nullify the trust of God. Humans who are unfaithful and untrustworthy do not take away the faithfulness and trust of God. A few unbelieving people will not change God’s faith in the Jews. Do a few people indicate that the whole group is unfaithful?
