e)We read about Rahab (Joshua Ch.2) and Ruth.

Yes, Rahab hid the spies and became a friend of Israel, and we read about Ruth from Moab (though she was more likely to have been originally from one of the Tribes of Israel and not a Moabitess as many mistakenly believe, as Sihon King of the Amorites had taken the land of Moab (Numbers 21:26) and then later, Joshua defeated Sihon and filled the land with the Tribes of Israel whom Moses had allocated it to (Joshua 13:32) )
These brave women earned themselves a place among the chosen race, and there was no question of their being admitted into their number. Rahab at least was a Gentile, women from the nations who were accepted in Israel. Ruth not only became part of Israel but became part of the lineage of David and later Yahshua. Now she had an important role! (Ruth Chapter 4: 13-22)

f) Yahweh had mercy on them when they repented.

I am talking of course about the Ninevites, another Gentile people. When Jonah obeyed Yahweh and preached to them, the Ninevites repented to a man of their evil ways and Yahweh had mercy on them. There are probably lots more examples in the Scriptures (Torah, Tanakh, Bible etc) of Yahweh helping and giving Gentiles opportunities which you (reader) can think of which I have missed. He is therefore “No respecter of persons” and will deal kindly with any who turn to Him from among the Gentile nations.

g)Do any of the prophets mention them?

The prophet of Salvation did more than mention them, He prophesied that Yahweh had indeed made provision for them. What did the prophet Isaiah say about the Gentiles? He mentioned Yahshua as being an “Ensign of the ‘peoples’, to it shall the Gentiles seek” (Isaiah 11:10) The reason we know this Ensign to be Yahshua is that Isaiah goes on to say “His rest shall be glorious” So, from long ago, Yahweh had the Gentiles in mind and made provision for them. Next, Isaiah also prophesied that “My Servant…shall bring forth judgement to the Gentiles” (Isaiah 42:1) and in verse 6 he went on to say “…give Thee for a covenant of the people, and a Light of the Gentiles” Yes, Yahweh Elohim desired that the Gentiles have light, and He gave Yahshua to be that light.
Yahweh also declared through His servant Isaiah that “…You will be my Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give Thee for a light to the Gentiles, that Thou may be my salvation to the end of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:6) *

(h)We then find them ‘splattered’ all over the New Covenant.

Their role in the New Covenant will largely be dealt with within my last point, but suffice it to say, the Gentiles are mentioned here and there in the Gospels, such as the Syro-Phoenician woman whose daughter was delivered of an evil spirit, (Mark 7:26) and of course, largely so in the Acts of the Apostles, letters and other writings. There is, therefore, an availability of the love of Elohim for all peoples, both Jews and the Gentiles, and the whole of mankind.

3.What is Father’s purpose for them? What is their destiny?

As we have already noted, from the Old Testament (Covenant) Scriptures (Torah, Tanakh, Bible etc.) Gentiles have played a rather negative role throughout Israel’s history, in that they have fought against them, been destroyed by them (because they were idolaters and unbelievers) but among them there has been a remnant who have come to know the Elohim of Jacob, and have become a part of Israel.
