Chapter 29

(29.1) So let us approach Him in holiness of spirit, lifting up pure and undefiled hands to Him, loving our kind and compassionate Father, who has made us His own selected portion.

(29.2) For thus it is written, "When the Most High divided the nations, when He scattered the sons of Adam, He established the boundaries of the nations according to the number of the angels of God. His people Jacob became the portion of the Lord, Israel the allotment of His inheritance."

(29.3) And in another place it says, "Behold, the Lord takes for Himself a nation from the midst of the nations, as a man takes the firstfruits of his threshing floor, and from that nation shall come the Holy of Holies.
