June 12: God’s unique relationship with Israel

Psalm 106:39-46 

Thus they were defiled by their own works,

And played the harlot by their own deeds.

Therefore the wrath of the Lord was kindled against His people,

So that He abhorred His own inheritance.

And He gave them into the hand of the Gentiles,

And those who hated them ruled over them.

Their enemies also oppressed them,

And they were brought into subjection under their hand.

Many times He delivered them;

But they rebelled in their counsel,

And were brought low for their iniquity.

Nevertheless He regarded their affliction,

When He heard their cry;

And for their sake He remembered His covenant,

And relented according to the multitude of His mercies.

He also made them to be pitied

By all those who carried them away captive.
