He was foreknown 1 before the foundation of the world but 2 was manifested in these last times 3 for your sake.
They know, 1 because they have known 2 me from time past, 3 if they are willing to testify, that according to the strictest party 4 of our religion, I lived as a Pharisee. 5
because those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that his Son 1 would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 2
Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, 1 be on your guard that you do not get led astray by the error of these unprincipled men 2 and fall from your firm grasp on the truth. 3
God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew! Do you not know what the scripture says about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel?
