    Duckybill, the passage you quote is about God not keeping the Jews hardened forever. It's about God not keeping the Jews hardened forever. Remember, they were hardened, to allow the Gentiles to be grafted in. God gave all over to disobedience, so that He can have mercy on all.

    Read Romans 9:25-29 carefully. The Jews were were God's people, now read who God's people are.

    Romans 9:25-29 As he says in Hosea: “I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people;
    and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,”

    [sup]26[/sup] and,

    “In the very place where it was said to them,
    ‘You are not my people,’
    there they will be called ‘children of the living God.’”

    [sup]27[/sup] Isaiah cries out concerning Israel:

    “Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea,
    only the remnant will be saved.
    [sup]28[/sup] For the Lord will carry out
    his sentence on earth with speed and finality.”

    [sup]29[/sup] It is just as Isaiah said previously:

    “Unless the Lord Almighty
    had left us descendants,
    we would have become like Sodom,
    we would have been like Gomorrah.”

    God raised the Nation of Israel from the dead to warn us that Jesus will return in THIS GENERATION.

    Acts 1:11 (NKJV)
    [sup]11 [/sup]who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven."

    And He will:

    Zechariah 14:1-4 (NKJV)
    [sup]1 [/sup]Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. [sup]2 [/sup]For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken, The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. [sup]3 [/sup]Then the Lord will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle. [sup]4 [/sup]And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east.

    And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites. - Genesis 15:17-21

    The LORD our God spoke to us in Horeb, saying: ‘You have dwelt long enough at this mountain. Turn and take your journey, and go to the mountains of the Amorites, to all the neighboring places in the plain, in the mountains and in the lowland, in the South and on the seacoast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river, the River Euphrates. See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—to give to them and their descendants after them. - Deuteronomy 1:6-8

    The land in which God gave Israel is vast... From Egypt to the Euphrates.
