How would Old Testament Israelites have shared their “testimony”?

They  would have said something like this:

We were in a foreign land, in bondage, under the sentence of death.  But our mediator – the one who stands between us and God – came to us with the promise of deliverance.  We trusted in the promises of God, took shelter under the blood of the lamb, and he led us out.  Now we are on our way to the Promised Land.  We are not there yet, of course, but we have the law to guide us, and through the blood sacrifice we also have his presence in our midst.  So he will stay with us until we get to our true country, our everlasting home.
