For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
But it is not as if the word of God was without effect. For they are not all Israel, who are of Israel:
But they have not all given ear to the good news. For Isaiah says, Lord, who has had faith in our word?
So I say, Has God put his people on one side? Let there be no such thought. For I am of Israel, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
And, truly, the good news came to us, even as it did to them; but the hearing of the word did them no good, because they were not united in faith with the true hearers.

God is not a man, to say what is false; or the son of man, that his purpose may be changed: what he has said, will he not do? and will he not give effect to the words of his mouth
1 Samuel 15:29
And further, the Glory of Israel will not say what is false, and his purpose may not be changed: for he is not a man, whose purpose may be changed.
For this is like the days of Noah to me: for as I took an oath that the waters of Noah would never again go over the earth, so have I taken an oath that I will not again be angry with you, or say bitter words to you.
So will my word be which goes out of my mouth: it will not come back to me with nothing done, but it will give effect to my purpose, and do that for which I have sent it.
And your name will become a curse to my people, and the Lord God will put you to death, and give his servants another name:
Have you taken note of what these people have said, The two families, which the Lord took for himself, he has given up? This they say, looking down on my people as being, in their eyes, no longer a nation.
Heaven and earth will come to an end, but my words will not come to an end.
2 Timothy 2:13
If we are without faith, still he keeps faith, for he will never be untrue to himself.
For when God made his oath to Abraham, because there was no greater oath, he made it by himself,

2 Thessalonians 1:3
It is right for us to give praise to God at all times for you, brothers, because of the great increase of your faith, and the wealth of your love for one another;

And some were in agreement with what he said, but some had doubts.
