Romans 11:2-6

ABU(i) 2 God did not cast away his people whom he foreknew. Know ye not what the Scripture says in the story of Elijah; how he pleads with God against Israel, saying: 3 Lord they killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I was left alone, and they seek my life. 4 But what says the answer of God to him? I reserved to myself seven thousand men, who bowed not the knee to Baal. 5 Even so then, at this present time also, there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, it is no longer of works; otherwise, grace becomes no longer grace. Ancient copies omit the words in brackets. [But if of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise, work is no longer work.]
