Sawyer(i) 2 God has not cast away his people whom he foreknew. Know you not what the Scripture says in Elijah, how he intercedes with God against Israel? 3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, they have dug down thy altars, and I am left alone, and they seek my life. 4 But what says the response to him? I have reserved for myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal. 5 So then also at the present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace; 6 but if by grace, no longer by works; for otherwise grace is no longer grace; but if by works, it is no longer grace; for otherwise a work is no longer a work.
