19 He has revealed his word to Jacob,
his laws and decrees to Israel.
20 He has done this for no other nation;
they do not know his laws.
Praise the Lord.
The nation of Israel was special to God because through its people He brought his laws and through its people He sent his Son, Jesus Christ.
Although it started with Israel, it didn’t stop with them – we’ve all been invited into a special relationship with God through Jesus Christ. In Galatians 3:28,29 it says:
“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
