The big idea here is that among the vessels of mercy (v. 23) are both many Gentiles and few Jews. This would come as a shock to Jews, who thought it was exactly the opposite. Paul makes this plain in verse 24, and goes on to clarify in vv. 25-29 with a progressively more negative outlook for Israel. (I've tried to show that each of these statements and verses is intended to surprise by using the Csv and Sit/R symbols.) It is not simply that many Gentiles will come into the flock of God, but that not many Jews will. Only a small remnant, as he makes clear in vv. 27, 29 with the parallels between seed and remnant, and the striking use of Is. in v. 29 which would seem to indicate that at least the entire generation being referred to was worthy of judgment like Sodom and Gomorrah. I think the outlook gets progressively better for gentiles in v. 25-26, where it seems that they will be called not only my people, but beloved, and not only beloved, but also sons of the living God. The progression might be overstated, since they're all part of the same package which could be summed up by any of the affectionate titles mentioned, but nevertheless it looks like Paul is going out of his way to show that these gentiles will receive all the blessings which were promised to Israel.
