CEBCommon English Bible
9But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people who are God’s own possession. You have become this people so that you may speak of the wonderful acts of the one who called you out of darkness into his amazing light. 10Once you weren’t a people, but now you are God’s people. Once you hadn’t received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
