As he says in Hosea: "I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people; and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,"
As He says also in Hosea, "I WILL CALL THOSE WHO WERE NOT MY PEOPLE, ‘MY PEOPLE,’ AND HER WHO WAS NOT BELOVED, ‘BELOVED.’"
Concerning the Gentiles, God says in the prophecy of Hosea, "Those who were not my people, I will now call my people. And I will love those whom I did not love before."
Hosea put it well: I'll call nobodies and make them somebodies; I'll call the unloved and make them beloved.
As he says in Hosea, They will be named my people who were not my people, and she will be loved who was not loved.
As indeed he says in Hosea, "Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people," and her who was not beloved I will call ‘beloved.’"
As He says also in Hosea: "I will call them My people, who were not My people, And her beloved, who was not beloved."
