The peaks of the mountains are His also.

8Do not harden your hearts, as at #Or place of strifeMeribah,
As in the day of #Or temptationMassah in the wilderness,
9“When your fathers tested Me,
They tried Me, though they had seen My work.
10“For forty years I loathed that generation,
And said they are a people who err in their heart,
And they do not know My ways.
11“Therefore I swore in My anger,
Truly they shall not enter into My rest.”
