'Depend' in the Bible
But the LORD is pleased with those who fear him, with those who depend on his gracious love.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding.
When he heard it, he returned and sent messengers to Hezekiah: "Say this to Hezekiah king of Judah: "Don't let your God on whom you depend deceive you when he says, "Jerusalem will not be handed over to the king of Assyria."
All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments."
Therefore, God's choice does not depend on a person's will or effort, but on God himself, who shows mercy.
Certainly all who depend on the actions of the Law are under a curse. For it is written, "A curse on everyone who does not obey everything that is written in the Book of the Law!"
