A Prayer for Protection[a]

44 With our own ears we have heard it, O God—
    our ancestors have told us about it,
about the great things you did in their time,
    in the days of long ago:
how you yourself drove out the heathen
    and established your people in their land;
how you punished the other nations
    and caused your own to prosper.
Your people did not conquer the land with their swords;
    they did not win it by their own power;
it was by your power and your strength,
    by the assurance of your presence,
    which showed that you loved them.
