The promised land

This week’s phrase is from Exodus 12:25:

And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.

Just as in the Old Testament, today the phrase is used to signify a goal. So to reach the promised land is to have achieved your goal.
