The Remnant of Israel

1 I ask, then, 1has God rejected his people? By no means! For 2I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham,a a member of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 3God has not rejected his people whom he 4foreknew. Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he appeals to God against Israel? 3 5"Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have demolished your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life." 4 But what is God's reply to him? 6"I have kept for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal." 5 So too at the present time there is 7a remnant, chosen by grace. 6 8But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace. 7 What then? 9Israel failed to obtain what it was seeking. The elect obtained it, but the rest 10were hardened, 8 as it is written, 11"God gave them a spirit of stupor, 12eyes that would not see and ears that would not hear, down to this very day." 9 And David says, 13"Let their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them; 10 let their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see, and bend their backs forever."
