You shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not… You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the Lord your God chastens you.
I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are right, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me. . . . It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes. . . . Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. § The Lord has chastened me severely, but He has not given me over to death. § He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him. . . . He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.
