Those who are faithful to God and love him (Ps. 31:23) and are dedicated to his service (Dan. 7:27) as the ‘holy ones’. In the NT the ‘saints’ are Christians as distinct from non-believers (1 Cor. 6:2); they belong to Jesus Christ and are God's beloved (Rom. 1:6–7), and are members of particular communities [[➝ community]], e.g. Jerusalem (Acts 9:13) or Lydda (Acts 9:32). In Rev. (17:6) they are martyrs for the faith.
