'Sustained' in the Bible
King Jehoram had returned to Jezreel to recover from wounds he had sustained from the Arameans when he had fought against King Hazael from Aram. So Jehu concluded, "Since this is what you've decided, then let no one get away, leave the city, and go report to Jezreel!"
You sustained them in the wilderness for 40 years. They lacked nothing. Their clothes did not wear out, and their feet did not swell.
God, you poured out abundant rain on your inheritance. When Israel was weary, you sustained her.
sustained through all eternity, and fashioned in both truth and righteousness.
