Psalm 106:24 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Moses his chosen - Or elect; (Vulgate, electus ejus; Septuagint, ὁ εκλεκτος αυτου); the person that he had appointed for this work. It would be very difficult to show that this word in any part of the Old Testament refers to the eternal state of any man, much less to the doctrine of unconditional election and reprobation.

But the riches of Christ are unsearchable and inexhaustible. If millions and millions
