Bible: Deuteronomy 8:2-5

8:2 Remember the whole way by which he 1  has brought you these forty years through the desert 2  so that he might, by humbling you, test you to see if you have it within you to keep his commandments or not. 8:3 So he humbled you by making you hungry and then feeding you with unfamiliar manna. 3  He did this to teach you 4  that humankind 5  cannot live by bread 6  alone, but also by everything that comes from the Lord’s mouth. 7  8:4 Your clothing did not wear out nor did your feet swell all these forty years. 8:5 Be keenly aware that just as a parent disciplines his child, 8  the Lord your God disciplines you.
