Rom 11:1-8, (MKJV)
|1 ||I say then, Did not God put away His people? Let it not be said ! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.|
|2 ||God did not thrust out His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture said in Elijah, how he pleaded with God against Israel, saying,|
|3 ||"Lord, they killed Your prophets and dug down Your altars, and I am left alone, and they seek my life."|
|4 ||But what does the Divine answer say to him? "I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal."|
|5 ||Even so then, also in this present time a remnant according to the election of grace has come into being.|
|6 ||But if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.|
|7 ||What then? Israel has not obtained that which it seeks, but the election obtained it , and the rest were hardened|
|8 ||even as it is written, "God gave to them a spirit of slumber, eyes not seeing, and ears not hearing" until this day.|
