They said to Him, "He will destroy those wicked men miserably, and will lease his vineyard to other vinegrowers, who will render to him the fruits in their seasons." Jesus said to them, "Did you never read in the Scriptures: 'The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone; this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes'? Therefore, I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you, and be given to a nation producing the fruit of it" (Matt. 21:40-43).
Here's what the OT says about the covenant with the x-chosen:
Zacharias 11:10 And I will take my beautiful staff, and cast it away, that I may break my covenant which I made with all the people
. 11 And it shall be broken in that day; and the Chananites, the sheep that are kept for me, shall know that it is the word of the Lord. 12 And I will say to them, If it be good in your eyes, give me my price, or refuse it. And they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver
. 13 And the Lord said to me, Drop them into the furnace, and I will see if it is good metal, as I was proved for their sakes. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them into the furnace in the house of the Lord.
14 And I cast away my second rod, even Line, that I might break the possession between Juda and Israel
. 15 And the Lord said to me, Take yet to thee shepherd’s implements belonging to an unskillful shepherd. 16 For, behold, I will raise up a shepherd against the land: he shall not visit that which is perishing, and he shall not seek that which is scattered, and he shall not heal that which is bruised, nor guide that which is whole: but he shall devour the flesh of the choice ones, and shall dislocate the joints of their necks.
17 Alas for the vain shepherds that have forsaken the sheep! the sword shall be upon the arms of such a one, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be completely withered, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
Here are the real chosen people:
Jhn 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Jhn 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:
Jhn 1:13 Which were born, not of blood
, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Mt. 13:14-15 “And the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled upon them, which says, ‘In hearing you will hear and in no way know, and seeing, you will see and no way perceive.’ For the heart of this people has grown fat, and they heard heavily with the ears, and their eyes were closed, lest they see with the eyes and they hear with the ears, and understand with the heart, and be converted, and I heal them.”
