Remember that the Lord your God led you on the entire journey these 40 years in the wilderness, so that He might humble you and test you to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep His commands.
He watches over His nest like an eagle
and hovers over His young;
He spreads His wings, catches him,
and lifts him up on His pinions.
Because of my adversaries,
show me Your way, Lord,
and lead me on a level path.
Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
You led Your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
If I live at the eastern horizon
or settle at the western limits,
even there Your hand will lead me;
Your right hand will hold on to me.
A man’s steps are determined by the Lord,
so how can anyone understand his own way?
Like cattle that go down into the valley,
the Spirit of the Lord gave them rest.
You led Your people this way
to make a glorious name for Yourself.
They were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them. They were astonished, but those who followed Him were afraid. Taking the Twelve aside again, He began to tell them the things that would happen to Him.
Then He led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up His hands He blessed them.
And while He was blessing them, He left them and was carried up into heaven.
