Chosen

Spoken of warriors (Exodus 15:4; Judges 20:16), of the Hebrew nation (Psalms 105:43; Deuteronomy 7:7), of Jerusalem as the seat of the temple (1 Kings 11:13). Christ is the "chosen" of God (Isaiah 42:1); and the apostles are "chosen" for their work (Acts 10:41). It is said with regard to those who do not profit by their opportunities that "many are called, but few are chosen" (Matthew 20:16). (See ELECTION .)
