O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. Psalm 136:1
In Psalm 136, God is praised primarily for the historical event called the Exodus. God heard the cries of the slaves in Egypt and brought about plagues that forced the Pharaoh to let the slaves go free. When the slaves faced the Red Sea before them and the Egyptian army behind them, God parted the waters so they could cross. Then the LORD closed the waters in on the Egyptian army. As the slaves wandered through the wilderness, God again saved them, bringing them to the Promised Land of Canaan after 40 years.
