Exodus 4:22; 2 Samuel 7:8; 2 Samuel 7:14; Isaiah 43:6; Jeremiah 31:9; Hosea 1:10; Revelation 21:7
22 Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the Lord, cIsrael is my dfirstborn son,
8 Now, therefore, thus you shall say to my servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, eI took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, that you should be prince1 over my people Israel.
14 rI will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. When he commits iniquity, sI will discipline him with the rod of men, with the stripes of the sons of men,
6 I will say to the north, Give up,
and to the south, Do not withhold;
bring wmy sons from afar
and wmy daughters from the end of the earth,
9 sWith weeping they shall come,
tand with pleas for mercy I will lead them back,
I will make them uwalk by brooks of water,
vin a straight path in which they shall not stumble,
for wI am a father to Israel,
and Ephraim is xmy firstborn.
10 1 Yet pthe number of the children of Israel shall be qlike the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or numbered. rAnd sin the place where it was said to them, o“You are not my people,” it shall be said to them, t“Children2 of uthe living God.”
7 qThe one who conquers will have this heritage, and rI will be his God and she will be my son.
