Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day.
And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;
If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.
The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:
As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
