View In My Bible
11 1And you divided the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on dry land, and you cast their pursuers into the depths, 2as a stone into mighty waters. 12 By 3a pillar of cloud you led them in the day, and by a pillar of fire in the night to light for them the way in which they should go. 13 4You came down on Mount Sinai 5and spoke with them from heaven and gave them 6right rules and true laws, good statutes and commandments, 14 7and you made known to them your holy Sabbath and commanded them commandments and statutes and a law by Moses your servant. 15 8You gave them bread from heaven for their hunger and 9brought water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and you 10told them to go in to possess the land that you had sworn to give them. 16 "But they and our fathers 11acted presumptuously and stiffened their neck and did not obey your commandments. 17 They refused to obey 12and were not mindful of the wonders that you performed among them, but they stiffened their neck and appointed a leader to return to their slavery in Egypt. But you are a God ready to forgive, 13gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them. 18 Even 14when they had made for themselves a goldena calf and said, 'This is your God who brought you up out of Egypt,'15and had committed great blasphemies, 19 you 16in your great mercies did not forsake them in the wilderness. 17The pillar of cloud to lead them in the way did not depart from them by day, 18nor the pillar of fire by night to light for them the way by which they should go. 20 19You gave your good Spirit to instruct them 20and did not withhold your manna from their mouth and gave them water for their thirst. 21 21Forty years you sustained them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing. Their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell.
