7 I will recount the gracious deeds of the Lord,
the praises of the Lord,
because of all that the Lord has done for us
and the great favor toward the house of Israel
that God has shown them according to his mercies,
according to the abundance of his loving kindnesses.
9 in all their distress.
It was no messenger or angel
but God's presence that saved them;
in love and mercy it was God who redeemed them;
lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
Word of the Father, Now in Flesh Appearing
…in all their distress … God's presence saved them!
Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet [Isaiah 7:14]. "Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel, which translated means 'God with us.'"
Mary will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he shall save the people from their sins. Matthew 1:21-23
"And lo, I am with you always, even until the end of the age." Matthew 28:20
