you in your great mercies did not forsake them in the wilderness; the pillar of cloud that led them in the way did not leave them by day, nor the pillar of fire by night that gave them light on the way by which they should go.
You gave your good spirit to instruct them, and did not withhold your manna from their mouths, and gave them water for their thirst.
Forty years you sustained them in the wilderness so that they lacked nothing; their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell.
And you gave them kingdoms and peoples, and allotted to them every corner, so they took possession of the land of King Sihon of Heshbon and the land of King Og of Bashan.
You multiplied their descendants like the stars of heaven, and brought them into the land that you had told their ancestors to enter and possess.
