Context
A Remnant of Israel

1I say then, Has God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2God has not cast away his people which he foreknew. Know you not what the scripture said of Elias? how he makes intercession to God against Israel saying, 3Lord, they have killed your prophets, and dig down your altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. 4But what said the answer of God to him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. 5Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. 7What then? Israel has not obtained that which he seeks for; but the election has obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8(According as it is written, God has given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) to this day. 9And David said, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompense to them: 10Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back always.
