“Bless our God!
Let the sound of his praise be heard!
He has kept us among the living.
He has not let our feet slip.
You have tested us!
You have tried us as silver is tried.
You brought us into the net.
You laid burdens on our backs.
You let people ride over our heads.
We went through fire.
We went through water.
You have brought us out to a spacious place.”
God has been good to the Israelites. They should bless God. The sounds of praise should be heard because he kept them among the living. He did not let their feet slip. They were tested like silver is tested in minting it. They fell into nets. They had burdens on their backs. People ran over them. They went through fire and water. However, in the end, they settled into a spacious place, the Promised Land.
