Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
But God led the
people about, [through
] the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed
out of the land of Egypt.
So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur
; and they went three days
in the wilderness, and found no water.
And when the cloud
was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the
place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents. ... Or [whether it were
] two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of Israel abode
in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journeyed.
And thou shalt remember
all the way which the LORD thy God led thee
these forty years in the wilderness, to humble
] to prove thee
, to know
] in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
Who led thee
through that great and terrible wilderness, [wherein were
] fiery serpents
, and scorpions, and drought, where [there was
] no water; who brought
thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
Moreover thou leddest
them in the day by a cloudy pillar; and in the night by a pillar of fire, to give them light in the way
wherein they should go.
Yet thou in thy
manifold mercies forsookest them not in the wilderness: the pillar
of the cloud departed not from them by day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to shew them light, and the way wherein they should go.
They shall not
hunger nor thirst; neither
shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that
hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
Then he remembered
the days of old, Moses, [and
] his people, [saying
], Where [is] he that brought
them up out of the sea with the shepherd
of his flock? where [is] he that put
his holy Spirit within him? ... As a beast goeth down into the valley, the Spirit
of the LORD caused him to rest: so didst thou lead thy people, to make
thyself a glorious name.
