Romans 9:4Which were made to Abraham and to his posterity.
Romans 9:5A most manifest testimony of the Godhead and divinity of Christ.
Romans 9:6He entereth into the handling of predestination by a kind of preventing an objection: How may it be, that Israel is cast off, but that therewithall we must also make the covenant which God made with Abraham and his seed, frustrate and void? He answereth therefore, that God’s word is true, although that Israel be cast off: for the election of the people of Israel is so general and common, that notwithstanding the same, God chooseth by his secret counsel, such as it pleaseth him. So then this is the proposition and state of this Treatise: The grace of salvation is offered generally in such sort, that notwithstanding it, the efficacy thereof pertaineth only to the elect.
Romans 9:6Israel in the first place, is taken for Jacob: and in the second, for the Israelites.
