Noyes(i) 2 God hath not cast off his people, which he foreknew. Do ye not know what the Scripture saith in the passage concerning Elijah? how he pleadeth to God against Israel: 3 "Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have dug down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they are seeking my life." 4 But what saith the answer of God to him? "I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal." 5 In the same way then at this present time also there is a remnant, according to the election of grace. 6 And if it is by grace, it is no longer on account of works; otherwise grace ceaseth to be grace; but if it is of works, there is then no grace; otherwise work ceaseth to be work. How is it then?
