I trampled nations in my anger;
I made them drunk[a] in my rage;
I splashed their blood on the ground.”[b]

A Prayer for Divine Intervention

I will tell of the faithful acts of the Lord,
of the Lord’s praiseworthy deeds.
I will tell about all[c] the Lord did for us,
the many good things he did for the family of Israel,[d]
because of[e] his compassion and great faithfulness.
He said, “Certainly they will be my people,
children who are not disloyal.”[f]
He became their deliverer.
