Romans 4:17; Romans 8:30; Romans 9:7; Romans 9:11; Romans 9:24-26
(As it is written , I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed , even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were .
Moreover whom he did predestinate , them he also called : and whom he called , them he also justified : and whom he justified , them he also glorified .
Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called .
(For the children being not yet born , neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand , not of works, but of him that calleth ;)
Even us, whom he hath called , not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved , which was not beloved .
And it shall come to pass , that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.
