Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, [so] that I will not take [any] of his seed [to be] rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them." {Jer 33:25-26} + "For I [am] the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed." {Mal 3:6} + "For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance." {Rom 11:29} + "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." {Jms 1:17}
