Psalms 33:12

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.
Read Chapter 33

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
12. "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord:" one nation is blessed, belonging to the heavenly city, which hath not chosen save the Lord for their God: "And the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance" (ver. 12): and which not of itself, but by the gift of God, hath been chosen, that He by possessing it may not suffer it to be uncared for and miserable.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Inheritance, in opposition to the Gentiles, 1 Peter ii. 9. (Berthier) God made choice particularly of the Jews, as he does now of Christians. (Worthington)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
