The Lord did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples.
8 But it was because the Lord loved you and kept the oath he swore to your ancestors that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
Father, how we praise You for the revelation of Your sovereign grace! There is nothing in any of Your people that can explain why You have chosen to redeem and love us as You do! You love us simply because You have chosen to love.
