God’s Ancient Mercies Recalled
7 I will tell of the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, and the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has done for us, and His great goodness toward the house of Israel, which He has shown them according to His compassion and according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.
8 For He said, “Be assured, they are My people, sons who will not be faithless.” So He became their Savior [in all their distresses].
9 In all their distress He was distressed, and the [a]angel of His presence saved them, in His love and in His compassion He redeemed them; and He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
10 But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit; Therefore He changed into their enemy, and He fought against them.
11 Then His people remembered the days of old, of Moses [and they said], where is He who brought our fathers up out of the [Red] Sea, with the shepherds of His flock [Moses and Aaron]? Where is He who put His Holy Spirit in their midst,
12 Who caused His glorious arm and infinite power to go at the right hand of Moses, dividing the waters before them to make for Himself an everlasting name,
13 Who led them through the depths [of the Red Sea], like a horse in the wilderness, [so that] they did not stumble?
14 Like the cattle that go down into the valley [to find better pasture and rest], the Spirit of the Lord gave them rest. So You led Your people [O Lord] to make for Yourself a beautiful and glorious name [preparing the way for the acknowledgment of Your name by all nations].Isaiah 63:7-14 (AMP)
