David's Prayer of Gratitude

18 Then King David went in and sat before the Lord and said, (A)“Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far? 19 And yet this was a small thing in your eyes, O Lord God. (B)You have spoken also of your servant's house for a great while to come, and this is instruction for mankind, O Lord God! 20 And what more can David say to you? (C)For you know your servant, O Lord God! 21 Because of your promise, and according to your own heart, you have brought about all this greatness, to make your servant know it. 22 (D)Therefore you are great, O Lord God. (E)For there is none like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 23 (F)And who is like your people Israel, the one nation on earth whom God went to redeem to be his people, making himself a name (G)and doing for them[a] great and awesome things by driving out before your people,[b] whom (H)you redeemed for yourself from Egypt, a nation and its gods?
