Romans 9:25

As he says also in Hosea,

“I will call them ‘my people,’ which were not my people;
and her ‘beloved,’ who was not beloved.”

(OPB)

The quote is from Hosea 2:23:

I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one.’ I will say to those called ‘Not my people,’ ‘You are my people’; and they will say, ‘You are my God.'”

(OPB)

Hm. Hosea’s come up before I see. I should read it.

For I desire mercy, and not sacrifice;
and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
