17 (A)The God of this people Israel (B)chose our fathers and (C)made the people great (D)during their stay in the land of Egypt, and (E)with uplifted arm he led them out of it.
7 (A)But the people of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly; they multiplied and grew exceedingly strong, so that the land was filled with them.
12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad. And the Egyptians were in dread of the people of Israel.
24 And the Lord (A)made his people very fruitful and made them stronger than their foes.
