MNT(i) 2 God did not cast off his people whom he foreknew. For do you not know what is said in the Scripture about Elijah? how he pleaded with God against Israel, saying, 3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have overthrown thine altars; And now I alone am left, and they seek my life. 4 But what was the answer of God to him? I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal. 5 In the same way also at this time there is a remnant chosen by gift of grace. 6 But if it is by grace, it is no longer of works; or else grace is no more grace.
