Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentRomans 11:5
- Remnant (limma).
- Old word, but only here in N.T., but in papyri also and with this spelling rather than leimma. From leipw, to leave.
- According to the election of grace (kat' ekloghn xaritov).
- As in 9:6-13. The election is all of God. Verse Romans 11:6 explains it further.
