7Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir? – Amos 9:7

This single verse here makes it clear that the “Israelites” (interpreted as modern day Jews”) are the same to God as the “Ethiopians”. Note that the quotes are the words of God speaking in the bible.

Interestingly, Amos 9:7, also speaks of how God brought out other peoples from places, just like how Israel was brought out from Egypt. More evidence that God watches over people other than just Israelites, even during biblical times.

I know well in advance that many christians will simply quote certain other verses to justify their popular idea that Jewish people are “chosen”, and, in the process try and sweep Amos 9:7 under the carpet.

However, I am more interested in hearing their interpretation of Amos 9:7.
