Romans 11:20

_ _ Well — “Be it so, but remember that”

_ _ because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest — not as a Gentile, but solely

_ _ by faith — But as faith cannot live in those “whose soul is lifted up” (Habakkuk 2:4).

_ _ Be not high-minded, but fear — (Proverbs 28:14; Philippians 2:12):

They were broken off for unbelief, and thou standest by faith — Both conditionally, not absolutely: if absolutely, there might have been room to boast. By faith — The free gift of God, which therefore ought to humble thee.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 11:20

Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but (t) fear:
