god chooses his messengers and god chooses his people, in the realm of the spirit no nation was as favoured as the jews and yet moses (pbuh) is made to bewail against his own people —

ye have been rebellious against the lord from the day i knew you.

(holy bible) deutronomy 9: 24

in this last will and testament of moses (pbuh) the israelites frustrate their "meek and gentle" messenger who is forced to rail against their continual stubborn resistance and arrogant attitudes to god's guidance —

for i knew thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while i am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the lord; and how much more after my death?

(holy bible) deutronomy 51:27

alas how true! i am not going to philosophise on god's choice. but in the very next chapter the fire of god's anger is kindled to a blaze and he decries the jews -

they have moved me to jealousy with that which is not god; they (the jews) have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and i will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; i will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

(holy bible) deutronomy 32:211
