We can see that the Lord is called the Holy One of Israel from the following passages.

The angel said to Mary, “The Holy One that is born from you will be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:35)

I saw in visions, and behold, a Watcher, a Holy One, coming down from heaven. (Daniel 4:13, 23)

[Thus says Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel, and Israel’s Maker.] (Isaiah 45:11)

Thus says Jehovah, the Redeemer of Israel, Israel’s Holy One. (Isaiah 49:7)

I am Jehovah your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. (Isaiah 43:1, 3)

As for our Redeemer, Jehovah Sabaoth is his name, the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 47:4)

Thus says Jehovah your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 43:14; 48:17)

Jehovah Sabaoth is his name, and your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 54:5)

They tested God and the Holy One of Israel. (Psalms 78:41)

They have abandoned Jehovah and have angered the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 1:4)

They said, “Make the Holy One of Israel cease from our presence.” Therefore thus said the Holy One of Israel . . . (Isaiah 30:11, 12)

. . . those who say, “Let him hasten his work so that we may see; let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and arrive.” (Isaiah 5:19)

On that day they will rely on Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. (Isaiah 10:20)

Shout and rejoice, daughter of Zion, because the Holy One of Israel is great in your midst. (Isaiah 12:6)

The God of Israel has said, “On that day people will look back to their Maker, and their eyes will look toward the Holy One of Israel.” (Isaiah 17:7)

Their land is full of sin against the Holy One of Israel. (Jeremiah 51:5)

There are many other instances elsewhere.

The Holy One of Israel means the Lord in his divine human nature, since the angel Gabriel said to Mary, “The Holy One that is born from you will be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:35). As for Jehovah and the Holy One of Israel being one and the same even though they are given different names, this is quite clear from the passages just cited where it says that Jehovah is the Holy One of Israel.

from The Lord, Section 40
