Bible: Deuteronomy 7:6-8

7:6 For you are a people holy 1  to the Lord your God. He 2  has chosen you to be his people, prized 3  above all others on the face of the earth.

The Basis of Israel’s Election

7:7 It is not because you were more numerous than all the other peoples that the Lord favored and chose you – for in fact you were the least numerous of all peoples. 7:8 Rather it is because of his 4  love 5  for you and his faithfulness to the promise 6  he solemnly vowed 7  to your ancestors 8  that the Lord brought you out with great power, 9  redeeming 10  you from the place of slavery, from the power 11  of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
