Deuteronomy 7:8

Deuteronomy 7:8

But because the Lord loved you
With an unmerited love; he loved them, because he loved them; that is, because he would love them; his love was not owing to any goodness in them, or done by them, or any love in them to him, but to his own good will and pleasure:

and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your
the promise he had made, confirmed by an oath:

hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand;
out of the land of Egypt:

and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen;
where they were bondmen to the Egyptians:

from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt;
who detained them, and refused to let them go.
