Paul is directly dealing with the problem of the Jew... .only a remnant within the Judahites (house of Judah) were elected and responded to the gospel. Others within the house of Judah and the non-Israelite proselytes they were among simply did not have the faith to believe in Christ, because the Holy Spirit had not planted that faith in their hearts...
The faith is referred to as the law of God written on the heart:…
“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord: I will put my law into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them, And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” Hebrews 10:16-17 — KJV.
When was this law of faith to be written in the heart of the elect?

One of the most disturbing differences is the amount of time that Israel spent in the land of Egypt. About 85% of the commentaries on this and articles say that Israel spent at least 400 years in Egypt; but if one carefully counts the years that the Bible says—it is a different number. With the many errors in our Bibles, one has to look beyond just one or a few verses to consider if it is true. Notice the difference between the Septuagint and the Kings James Version of Exodus 12:40.
Galatians 3:17; And this I say, that the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ (the anointed—the covenant people of God), the law, which was FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS AFTER, cannot annul that it should make the promise of no effect.
