1. What did Paul say to establish his credibility?

That his conscience and the Holy Ghost bore witness of his speaking the truth:I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost(Romans 9:1).

2. What did Paul have in his heart?

That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart(Romans 9:2).

3. What extreme was Paul willing to go to for his brethren (Israelites)?

Be accursed: For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh(Romans 9:3).

4. What great things occurred to and through the Israelites?

(4) Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; (5) Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen(Romans 9:4-5).

5. Were the blessings upon Israel only to the fleshly seed of Abraham?

No: (6) Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: (7) Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. (8) That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed(Romans 9:6-8).

6. What did God prove by His prophesies concerning Jacob and Esau?

That it was His foreknowledge, by His desire, and not works that had been done by Isaac or Jacob that brought about the promises and fulfillments thereof: (10) And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; (11) ( 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 that calleth;) (12) It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. (13) As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated(Romans 9:10-13).
