17 "The God of this people Israel 3chose our fathers and 4made the people great during their stay in the land of Egypt, and with an uplifted arm 5He led them out from it.
18 "For 6a period of about forty years 7He put up with them in the wilderness.
19 "8When He had destroyed 9seven nations in the land of Canaan, He 10distributed their land as an inheritance -all of which took 11about four hundred and fifty years.
21 "Then they 14asked for a king, and God gave them 15Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years.
22 "After He had 16removed him, He raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, '17I HAVE FOUND DAVID the son of Jesse, A MAN AFTER MY HEART, who will do all My will.'
