Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.
He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that in the end it might go well with you.
I will use them to test Israel and see whether they will keep the way of the LORD and walk in it as their ancestors did."
Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart--
