43Thus the Lord gave to Israel all the land that he swore to give to their fathers. And they took possession of it, and they settled there. 44And the Lord gave them rest on every side just as he had sworn to their fathers. Not one of all their enemies had withstood them, for the Lord had given all their enemies into their hands.
45Not one word of all the good promises that the Lord had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass.
Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So
1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,for his steadfast love endures forever! 2Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,whom he has redeemed from troubleOr from the hand of the foe 3and gathered in from the lands,from the east and from the west,from the north and from the south.
4Some wandered in desert wastes,finding no way to a city to dwell in; 5hungry and thirsty,their soul fainted within them. 6Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,and he delivered them from their distress. 7He led them by a straight waytill they reached a city to dwell in. 8Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,for his wondrous works to the children of man! 9For he satisfies the longing soul,and the hungry soul he fills with good things.
10Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death,prisoners in affliction and in irons, 11for they had rebelled against the words of God,and spurned the counsel of the Most High. 12So he bowed their hearts down with hard labor;they fell down, with none to help. 13Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,and he delivered them from their distress. 14He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death,and burst their bonds apart.
15Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,for his wondrous works to the children of man! 16For he shatters the doors of bronzeand cuts in two the bars of iron.
17Some were fools through their sinful ways,and because of their iniquities suffered affliction; 18they loathed any kind of food,and they drew near to the gates of death. 19Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,and he delivered them from their distress. 20He sent out his word and healed them,and delivered them from their destruction. 21Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,for his wondrous works to the children of man! 22And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!
23Some went down to the sea in ships,doing business on the great waters; 24they saw the deeds of the Lord,his wondrous works in the deep. 25For he commanded and raised the stormy wind,which lifted up the waves of the sea. 26They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths;their courage melted away in their evil plight; 27they reeled and staggered like drunken menand were at their wits' end.Hebrew and all their wisdom was swallowed up 28Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,and he delivered them from their distress. 29He made the storm be still,and the waves of the sea were hushed. 30Then they were glad that the watersHebrew they were quiet,and he brought them to their desired haven. 31Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,for his wondrous works to the children of man! 32Let them extol him in the congregation of the people,and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
28Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
