In this verse there are various expressions describing the people of God; several of these characterizations we can more or less understand. They are a chosen people; they are elect sinners. They belong to Christ the King and so they are a royal priesthood, called to be holy, devoted to the Lord. But then comes the expression that we find rather strange. God's children are characterized as being a peculiar people.
