Consider the years of †many generations:
pAsk thy father, and he will shew thee;
Thy elders, and they will tell thee.
8 When the most High qdivided to the nations their inheritance,
When he rseparated the sons of Adam,
He set the bounds of the people
According to the number of the children of Israel.
Jacob is the †lot of his inheritance.
10 He found him sin a desert land,
He ||led him about, he instructed him,
He kept him as xthe apple of his eye.
11 yAs an eagle stirreth up her nest,
zFluttereth over her young,
Spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them,
yBeareth them on her wings:
And there was no strange god with him.
13 aHe made him ride on the high places of the earth,
That he might eat the increase of the fields;
And he made him to suck bhoney out of the rock,
With fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan,
And goats, with ethe fat of kidneys of wheat;
And thou didst drink the pure fblood of the grape.
