Romans 11:20

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers

King James Version

Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
New King James Version

Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear.
New American Standard Bible

Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but be afraid.
New International Version

Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.
The Amplified Bible

That is true. But they were broken (pruned) off because of their unbelief (their lack of real faith), and you are established through faith [because you do believe]. So do not become proud and conceited, but rather stand in awe and be reverently afraid.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

Well! Because of their unbelief they were broken off. But, as for you, by faith you stand. Stop having a superiority complex, but be fearing.
Phillips’ Modern English

Very well, then. They lost their position because they failed to believe; you only maintain yours because you do believe. The situation does not call for conceit but for a certain wholesome fear.
Williams’ Language of the People

Very well; but it was for lack of faith that they were broken off, and it is through your faith that you now stand where you are. Stop your haughty thinking; rather continue to be reverent,
