Bani Israel were not been favoured because of they were from the grand children of those who were with Noah, because in fact all human beings after Noah were from those who were with Noah. Bani Israel were the grand children of Prophet Ya'qoub who was also known as Israel which means in their language : Servant of Allah (Abdullah). The grand children of Yaqoub lived in Egypt then went to other places. Many prophets and kings were from that progeny. Prophets from Bani Israel include Yousuf, Ayyub, Dhul Kifayah, Younus, Dawood, Sulaiman, Musa, Haroon, Zakaria, Yahya, Easa (AS) and many others. Bani Israel (The grand children of Ya'qoub) had pious believers in Allah like the prophets and their sincere followers, and had majority of disobedient community who opposed their own prophets and tortured and even killed some of them.(Sura 2, Verse 87) and (Sura 4, Verse 183).

Allah (SWT) cursed from Bani Israel those who were disobedient (Sura 5, Verse 78).

Majority of Bani Israel did not appreciate the great bounties of Allah on them and went against His orders, that is why we read in Quran many verses in which Allah mentioning the bounties bestowed on Bani Israel and how they never thanked Allah but on the contrary, insisted on disobeying Him and opposing His prophets. They wanted a religion which suits their evil desires and not the religion of Allah.
