The word of God has not failed (Rom 9:6)

“It is not as though

The word of God

Had failed.

Not all Israelites

Belong to Israel.”

Οὐχ οἷον δὲ ὅτι ἐκπέπτωκεν ὁ λόγος τοῦ Θεοῦ. οὐ γὰρ πάντες οἱ ἐξ Ἰσραήλ, οὗτοι Ἰσραήλ·

Paul said that it is not as though (Οὐχ οἷον δὲ) the word of God (ὁ λόγος τοῦ Θεοῦ) had failed (ἐκπέπτωκεν).  Not all Israelites (οὐ γὰρ πάντες οἱ ἐξ Ἰσραήλ) belong to Israel (οὗτοι Ἰσραήλ).  Paul indicated that God is not unfaithful.  The word of God has not failed, because not all the Israelites are from Israel.  Paul began to expand on the meaning of Israelites.  You could be an Israelite but not be from Israel.  Certainly, any failing was not on the part of God.  Some Israelites did not live up to their calling.  Do you live up to your calling?
