10Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.

17He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant:

18“To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion you will inherit.”

19When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it,

20they One Hebrew manuscript, Septuagint and Vulgate (see also Psalm 105:12); most Hebrew manuscripts inherit, / 19 though you are but few in number, / few indeed, and strangers in it.” / 20 They wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another.
