DouayRheims(i) 2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Know you not what the scripture saith of Elias, how he calleth on God against Israel? 3 Lord, they have slain thy prophets, they have dug down thy altars. And I am left alone: and they seek my life. 4 But what saith the divine answer to him? I have left me seven thousand men that have not bowed their knees to Baal. 5 Even so then, at this present time also, there is a remnant saved according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, it is not now by works: otherwise grace is no more grace.
