Bible: 1 Pet 2:9-10
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.
