Romans 11:6
Good News Translation
His choice is based on his grace, not on what they have done. For if God's choice were based on what people do, then his grace would not be real grace.

Contemporary English Version

Douay-Rheims Bible

New American Bible
But if by grace, it is no longer because of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.
