Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 11:4

But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have (b) reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to [the image of] (c) Baal.

(b) He speaks of remnants and reserved people who were chosen from everlasting, and not of remnants that should be chosen afterwards: for they are not chosen, because they were not idolaters: but rather they were not idolaters, because they were chosen and elect.

(c) "Baal" signifies as much as "master" or "patron", or one in whose power another is, which name the idolaters in this day give their idols, naming them "patrons", and "patronesses" or "ladies".
