Rom 9:3-5

3For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my own people, my kindred according to the flesh.4They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises;5to them belong the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, comes the Messiah, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.
