Israel’s judgment for covenantal violation was not to come merely in the form of a removal of particular privileges. Instead, it would involve a complete reversal of God’s sovereign election procedures. As God once had called Abraham out of Ur of the Chaldees and given him promise concerning a land, so now the seed of Abraham must be cast out of this land of promise. They must be declared “not my people.”
