1 Peter 2:9-10

Context
2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may proclaim the virtues 1  of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 2:10 You 2  once were not a people, but now you are God’s people. You were shown no mercy, 3  but now you have received mercy.

1 sn This verse contains various allusions and quotations from Exod 19:5-6; 23:22 (LXX); Isa 43:20-21; and Mal 3:17.

2 tn Grk “who,” continuing the description of the readers from vs. 9. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

3 sn The quotations in v. 10 are from Hos 1:6, 9; 2:23.
