1 Samuel 12:22 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

22 For the sake of his own great name[a] the Lord will not abandon his people, since the Lord has decided to make you his people.

Footnotes:

  1. 12:22 His own great name: were the Lord to abandon his people, even if they abandon him, he would diminish his stature or reputation in the divine council or among the nations (e.g., Ez 20:9). Throughout the Old Testament the Lord is encouraged to deliver Israel, despite its evil, “for the sake of his name.”

Ben Sira 47:22 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

22 But God does not withdraw his mercy,
    nor permit even one of his promises to fail.
He does not uproot the posterity of the chosen,
    nor destroy the offspring of his friends.
So he gave to Jacob a remnant,
    to David a root from his own family.
