“I will give you the land of Canaan as your special possession.”
He said this when you were few in number, a tiny group of strangers in Canaan.
They wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another.
Yet he did not let anyone oppress them. He warned kings on their behalf:
“Do not touch my chosen people, and do not hurt my prophets.”
Let the whole earth sing to the LORD ! Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.
Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.
Great is the LORD ! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods.
The gods of other nations are mere idols, but the LORD made the heavens!
Honor and majesty surround him; strength and joy fill his dwelling.
O nations of the world, recognize the LORD, recognize that the LORD is glorious and strong.
