21 What other one nation on the earth is like your people Israel, God, which you have redeemed from slavery to become your own people, making a great name for yourself when you redeemed your people from Egypt. You did awesome miraculous deeds, driving out nations that stood in their way. 22 You took your people Israel to be your very own people forever, and you, LORD, have become their God. 23 "And now, LORD, let what you have spoken concerning your servant and his household be done forever and let it be done just as you've promised.
