7:7The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

7:8But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

10:15Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day.

78:68But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.

78:70He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:

78:71From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.

105:17He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:

105:18Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

105:19Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

105:20The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

105:21He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:

Matthew (Author Matthew)

11:25At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

11:26Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.

20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

20:23And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.

22:14For many are called, but few are chosen.

14:21The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.

Luke (Author Luke)

4:25But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;

4:26But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.

4:27And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.

8:10And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

10:20Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

17:34I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

6:37All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

6:39And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

6:44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

6:45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

15:16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

15:19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

17:2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

17:6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

17:9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

21:23Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

Acts (Author Luke)

1:7And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

2:23Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

2:39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

2:47Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

3:18But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.

4:28For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

13:48And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.

17:26And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

22:14And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.

Romans (Author Paul)

1:6Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:

8:28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

8:29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

8:30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

8:33Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

9:7Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.

9:8That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

9:9For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.

9:10And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;

9:11(For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)

9:12It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.

9:13As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

9:14What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.

9:15For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

9:16So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

9:17For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.

9:18Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.

9:19Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?

9:20Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?

9:21Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

9:22What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:

9:23And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,

9:24Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

9:25As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

9:26And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

9:27Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:

9:28For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.

9:29And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.

9:30What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.

9:31But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.

9:32Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;

9:33As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

11:5Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

11:7What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

11:8(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

1:26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

1:27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

1:28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

1:29That no flesh should glory in his presence.

2:7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

Galatians (Author Paul)

1:15But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,

Ephesians (Author Paul)

1:4According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

1:5Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

1:9Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

1:10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

1:11In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

2:10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

3:11According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

Colossians (Author Paul)

3:12Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

1 Thessalonians (Author Paul)

1:4Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.

2:12That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

2 Thessalonians (Author Paul)

2:13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

2 Timothy (Author Paul)

1:9Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

Titus (Author Paul)

1:1Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;

1:2In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

James (Author James)

1:18Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

1 Peter (Author Peter)

1:2Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

1:20Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

2 Peter (Author Peter)

1:10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

Jude (Author Jude)

1:4For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation (Author John)

13:8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
