Wisdom 11:8
You showed your people through their own experience of thirst how you punished their opponents.
And whilst they were diminished for a manifest reproof of their murdering the infants, thou gavest to thine abundant water unlooked for:
Because those enemies decreed that the babies of your people should be killed, you stirred up the sources of their everflowing river and made it foul with blood. In the desert you let your people go thirsty, to give them a taste of how you had punished their enemies. And then, when they least expected it, you gave them plenty of water.
after you had shown by the thirst they experienced how you punished their adversaries.
showing by their thirst at that time how you punished their enemies.
showing by their thirst at that time how you punished their enemies.
showing by their thirst at that time how you punished their enemies.
showing by their thirst at that time how you punished their enemies.
showing by their thirst at that time how thou didst punish their enemies.
showing by their thirst at that time how thou didst punish their enemies.
and showedest by the thirst, that was then, how thou wouldest enhance thy servants, and wouldest slay the adversaries of them.
