ACV(i) 2 God did not thrust away his people whom he foreknew. Or know ye not what the scripture tells by Elijah? How he encounters God about Israel. 3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and they have torn down thine altars, and I am left alone, and they seek my life. 4 But what does the divine response say to him? I have reserved for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed a knee to Baal. 5 So then also at this present time there has become a remnant according to the selection of grace. 6 And if it is by grace, it is no longer from works, otherwise grace becomes no longer grace. But if it is from works it is no longer grace, otherwise work is no longer work.
