2 God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying,
3 “Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life”?
4 But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.
Answer 2 — God has foreknowledge and knew how Israel would respond, but He still made promises.
Answer 3 — God always preserves a remnant of believers (1 Kings 19:10, 14, 18).
“for Myself” — added to the original quote by Paul to emphasize God’s power and will in election.
cast away — Rejected, thrust from ones self.
