127 And he hath created his children, that they should possess it.

128 And he raiseth up a righteous nation; and destroyeth the nations of the wicked.

129 And he leadeth away the righteous into precious lands, and the wicked he destroyeth, and curseth the land unto them for their sakes.

130 He ruleth high in the heavens, for it is his throne, and this earth is his footstool.

131 And he loveth those who will have him to be their God.

132 Behold, he loved our fathers; and he covenanted with them, yea, even Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: and he remembered the covenants which he had made;

133 Wherefore, he did bring them out of the land of Egypt, and he did straighten them in the wilderness with his rod, for they hardened their hearts, even as ye have; and the Lord straightened them because of their iniquity.

134 He sent fiery-flying serpents among them; and after they were bitten, he prepared a way that they might be healed;

135 And the labor which they had to perform was to look! and because of the simpleness of the way, or the easiness of it, there were many who perished.

136 And they did harden their hearts from time to time, and they did revile against Moses, and also against God;

137 Nevertheless, ye know that they were led forth by his matchless power into the land of promise.
