“O Jacob, and Israel My Called”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
The Lord addresses them by their natural name as descendants of Jacob, and then by their covenant name, Israel. The phrase “my called” has reference to the foreordination given those born into the house of Israel to be the ministers of salvation to all other peoples of the earth (see Abraham 2:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:7-9).
