You’re people will be my people, and your God my God. This is taken from Ruth 1:16.

Jehovah did not flip in the presence of the non-Israelites among his people. He allowed “a vast mixed company” of non-Israelites, including Egyptians, to accompany his people when he delivered them from Egypt. (Exodus 12:38) just before the Israelites cross the Jordan to take possession of Canaan, Moses told him that they “must love the foreign resident” in their midst. (Deuteronomy 10:17–12) God’s chosen people were to accept in their community any foreigners who were willing to observe the basic laws given by Moses. (Leviticus 24:22) simple one residents became worshipers of Jehovah, showing the feelings of the Moab. Jehovah welcome them as members of the community of his chosen people. (Numbers 15:14, 15) When Solomon’s temple was dedicated to Jehovah, provisions was made for non-Israelite worshipers, as reflected in Solomon’s prayer. (2 chronicles 6:22, 23)
