CHAPTER 11 B. The Economy in God's Selection
1. A Remnant Reserved by Grace
2 God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says in the passage concerning Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel?
5 In the same way then at the present time also there has come into being a remnant according to the aselection of grace.
6 But if by agrace, it is no longer out of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace.
8 As it is written, a"God gave them a spirit of deep sleep, eyes to see not and ears to hear not, until this very day.''
9 And David says, a"Let their table become a snare and a trap and a stumbling block and a retribution to them;
10 aLet their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see; and bend their back continually.''
