78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old,
78:3 Which we have heard and known, And our fathers have told us.
78:5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, And appointed a law in Israel, Which he commanded our fathers, That they should make them known to their children;
78:6 That the generation to come might know [them], even the children that should be born; Who should arise and tell [them] to their children,
78:11 And they forgat his doings, And his wondrous works that he had showed them.
78:13 He clave the sea, and caused them to pass through; And he made the waters to stand as a heap.
78:15 He clave rocks in the wilderness, And gave them drink abundantly as out of the depths.
78:16 He brought streams also out of the rock, And caused waters to run down like rivers.
78:17 Yet went they on still to sin against him, To rebel against the Most High in the desert.
78:22 Because they believed not in God, And trusted not in his salvation.
78:23 Yet he commanded the skies above, And opened the doors of heaven;
78:24 And he rained down manna upon them to eat, And gave them food from heaven.
78:29 So they did eat, and were well filled; And he gave them their own desire.
78:30 They were not estranged from that which they desired, Their food was yet in their mouths,
78:32 For all this they sinned still, And believed not in his wondrous works.
78:33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, And their years in terror.
78:34 When he slew them, then they inquired after him; And they returned and sought God earnestly.
78:36 But they flattered him with their mouth, And lied unto him with their tongue.
78:38 But he, being merciful, forgave [their] iniquity, and destroyed [them] not: Yea, many a time turned he his anger away, And did not stir up all his wrath.
78:39 And he remembered that they were but flesh, A wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
78:40 How oft did they rebel against him in the wilderness, And grieve him in the desert!
78:41 And they turned again and tempted God, And provoked the Holy One of Israel.
78:43 How he set his signs in Egypt, And his wonders in the field of Zoan,
78:44 And turned their rivers into blood, And their streams, so that they could not drink.
78:46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpillar, And their labor unto the locust.
78:47 He destroyed their vines with hail, And their sycomore-trees with frost.
78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, Wrath, and indignation, and trouble, A band of angels of evil.
78:57 But turned back, and dealt treacherously like their fathers: They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
78:58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, And moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
78:62 He gave his people over also unto the sword, And was wroth with his inheritance.
78:64 Their priests fell by the sword; And their widows made no lamentation.
78:66 And he smote his adversaries backward: He put them to a perpetual reproach.
78:68 But chose the tribe of Judah, The mount Zion which he loved.
78:69 And he built his sanctuary like the heights, Like the earth which he hath established for ever.
78:70 He chose David also his servant, And took him from the sheepfolds:
78:71 From following the ewes that have their young he brought him, To be the shepherd of Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
