New Living Translation
And since Abraham and the other patriarchs were holy, their descendants will also be holy--just as the entire batch of dough is holy because the portion given as an offering is holy. For if the roots of the tree are holy, the branches will be, too.
King James Bible
For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
Darby Bible Translation
Now if the first-fruit be holy, the lump also; and if the root be holy, the branches also.
World English Bible
If the first fruit is holy, so is the lump. If the root is holy, so are the branches.
Young's Literal Translation
and if the first-fruit is holy, the lump also; and if the root is holy, the branches also.

CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
11:16 And this will surely come to pass. For if the first fruits be holy, so is the lump - The consecration of them was esteemed the consecration of all and so the conversion of a few Jews is an earnest of the conversion of all the rest. And if the root be holy - The patriarchs from whom they spring, surely God will at length make their descendants also holy.

The first of the ripe fruits and all the gifts brought to the LORD will go to the priests. The first samples of each grain harvest and the first of your flour must also be given to the priests so the LORD will bless your homes.
And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us.
