Deuteronomy 1:31 (ESV)

31 and in the wilderness, where you have seen how the LORD your God carried you, as a man carries his son, all the way that you went until you came to this place.’

Moses casts in intimate imagery the care that the Lord gave to his people along the way: he speaks of a man carrying his child. The Lord thus carried his people from Egypt through the dangers and trials of the desert, until they arrived at Moab.
