Deuteronomy 32:11–12; Exodus 19:4; Isaiah 46:3–4; Isaiah 63:9; Hosea 11:3

11  fLike an eagle that stirs up its nest,

that flutters over its young,

spreading out its wings, catching them,

bearing them on its pinions,

12  gthe Lord alone guided him,

hno foreign god was with him.


uYou yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how vI bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself.


Listen to me, O house of Jacob,

all the remnant of the house of Israel,

qwho have been borne by me from before your birth,

carried from the womb;

reven to your old age I am he,

and to gray hairs I will carry you.

I have made, and I will bear;

I will carry and will save.


vIn all their affliction he was afflicted,1

and the angel of his presence saved them;

win his love and in his pity he redeemed them;

xhe lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.


Yet it was aI who taught Ephraim to walk;

I took them up by their arms,

but they did not know that bI healed them.
