But I said to you, “Have no dread or fear of them.
The LORD, your God, who goes before you, is the one who will fight for you, just as he acted with you before your very eyes in Egypt,
as well as in the wilderness, where you saw how the LORD, your God, carried you, as one carries his own child, all along your journey until you arrived at this place.”
Despite this, you would not trust the LORD, your God,
who journeys before you to find you a place to camp—by night in the fire, and by day in the cloud, to show you the way to go.
