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
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.
