Paul slightly changes the words of God’s response as recorded in the Hebrew Bible:
But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”
1 Kings 19:18
Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.”
Paul inserted the phrase, “for Myself” thus indicating the action was totally of God. God protected those whose hearts and lives were completely His.
PRAISE GOD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS TO HIS WORD TO ISRAEL
