were.
obtained.
 These are the words of Hosea 2. This sets before us, in the most interesting way, the principle on which the blessing is founded. In Exodus the people were to have this blessing if they exactly obeyed the voice of God. But Israel had not obeyed….But afterwards, when the judgment had been executed, He returns to His irrevocable purposes of grace, and allures Israel as a forsaken wife. (1 Peter 2 by J.N. Darby)
 Their faith rests on Him, not on themselves; whosoever believeth on Him shall not be confounded; and they did believe on Him who secures all for the weakest that is His. Hence they anticipate Hos. 2:23 before it can be verified to Israel, as ver. 10 clearly proves. They are warranted to appropriate now the prophet's words. It is due to Christ whom God delights to honor. (1 Peter 2:9-10 by W. Kelly)
 The once "no people" were now God's people; the unpitied as to their settled state, which the perfect implies, were now pitied. How truly great His mercy now! (1 Peter 2:9-10 by W. Kelly)

who once were not a people, but now God’s people; who were not enjoying mercy, but now have found mercyh.

JND Translation Notes

h
I have endeavoured to express the perfect participle of the verb "to show mercy" by "enjoying mercy," and the aorist participle of the same verb by "having found mercy." See Hos. 1.10; 2.23.

who once [were] no people but now God’s people, the unpitied, but now pitied1.

God’s people: "God’s people" suffices: and at the end "obtained" without "have," the fact now simply, in contrast with the previous state of Lo-ruhamah. (Bible Treasury 15:63)
