Romans 9:27; Jeremiah 3:14; Zechariah 13:8

27 And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: nThough the number of the sons of Israel1 be as the sand of the sea, oonly a remnant of them will be saved,

14  eReturn, O faithless children,

declares the Lord;

ffor I am your master;

I will take you, one from a city and two from a family,

and I will bring you to Zion.

In the whole land, declares the Lord,

two thirds shall be cut off and perish,

sand one third shall be left alive.
