|New International Version (© 2011)|
Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
King James Bible
Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
American Standard Version
who in time past were no people, but now are the people of God: who had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Young's Literal Translation
who were once not a people, and are now the people of God; who had not found kindness, and now have found kindness.
1 Peter 2:10 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Which in time past were not a people - This is a quotation from Hosea 1:9, Hosea 1:10; Hosea 2:23, where the calling of the Gentiles, by the preaching of the Gospel, is foretold. From this it is evident, that the people to whom the apostle now addresses himself had been Gentiles, covered with ignorance and superstition, and now had obtained mercy by the preaching of the Gospel of Christ.
