A Remnant of Israel Remains

1 Therefore I say, God has not rejected his people, has he?a May it never be! For I also am an Israelite, from the descendants of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not rejected his people, whom he foreknew! Or do you not know, in [the passage about]b Elijah, what the scripture says--how he appeals to God against Israel? 3 "Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have torn down your altars, and I alone am left, and they are seeking my life!"c 4 But what does the divine response say to him? "I have left for myself seven thousand peopled who have not bent the knee to Baal."e 5 So in this way also at the present time, there is a remnant {selected by grace}f. 6 But if by grace, [it is] no longer by works, for otherwise grace would no longer be grace.
