electus (masculine)
electa (feminine)

When John of Forde comments on the Song of Songs, he begins with the quotation: "My Beloved is radiant and ruddy, chosen in thousands" (Sg 5:10). The phrase electus in milibus , 'chosen in thousands', is worth noting carefully, since I have not been able to discover a single manuscript of the Bible in which it occurs. It is always found in the form: electus ex milibus , 'chosen from thousands'. The only place where I have been able to find the reading: electus in milibus is in Saint Bernard's twenty-eighth sermon on the Canticle, where it occurs in about four manuscripts.
