Amos 9:7

הֲלוֹא כִבְנֵי כֻשִׁיִּים אַתֶּם לִי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל נְאֻם ה‘ הֲלוֹא אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל הֶעֱלֵיתִי מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם וּפְלִשְׁתִּיִּים מִכַּפְתּוֹר וַאֲרָם מִקִּיר

“Are you not like the children of the Ethiopians to Me, you children of Israel?” says Hashem. “Did I not bring Israel up from the land of Egypt, and the Philistines from Caphtor, and Aram from Kir?”

In a bit of a reality check, G-d reminds the Jews that they’re just like everyone else. Rashi explains that we are all descendants of Noah and G-d has redeemed other nations from their enemies as well. The only difference is that He forged a covenant with us.
