“For thy people Israel didst thou make thine own people for ever; and thou, Lord, becamest their God.”
1 Chronicles 17:22 KJV
The LORD will not forsake his people for his great name’s sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people. For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Ephesians 2:19-22 KJV
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
1 Peter 2:9-10 KJV
