Did God Care Only For Israel?

First Chronicles chapters one through nine list an awesome genealogy, consisting mostly of Israel, but the fact that Ezra, the writer of Chronicles, included other nations shows that God cared for all the nations of the earth. In these first nine chapters the other nations that Ezra did include had a connection with Israel.
Ezra showed the genealogy of Ishmael, the other well-known son of Abraham, “These are their genealogies: The firstborn of Ishmael was Nebajoth; then Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. These were the sons of Ishmael” (1 Chronicles 1:29-31).
Do you think God still cares for all the nations of the earth and knows all about them?
