“Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.”
King James Version (KJV)
51:2 Him alone - To follow me to an unknown land: him only of all his kindred. Increased - Into a vast multitude, when his condition was desperate in the eye of reason. And therefore God can as easily raise his church when they are in the most forlorn condition.
