Bible: Deuteronomy 7:7-8

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 1  love 2  for you and his faithfulness to the promise 3  he solemnly vowed 4  to your ancestors 5  that the Lord brought you out with great power, 6  redeeming 7  you from the place of slavery, from the power 8  of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
