78:1  Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
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.
78:4  We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.
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 which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
78:7  That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
78:8  And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
78:9  The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
78:10  They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
78:11  And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
78:12  Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
78:13  He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
78:14  In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.
78:15  He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.
78:16  He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
78:17  And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.
78:18  And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
78:19  Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
78:20  Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
78:21  Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
78:22  Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
78:23  Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
78:24  And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
78:25  Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.
78:26  He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.
78:27  He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:
78:28  And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
78:29  So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
78:30  They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,
78:31  The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
78:32  For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
78:33  Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
78:34  When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.
78:35  And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.
78:36  Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.
78:37  For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
78:38  But he, being full of compassion, 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  For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
78:40  How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!
78:41  Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
78:42  They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.
78:43  How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan.
78:44  And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.
78:45  He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.
78:46  He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.
78:47  He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.
78:48  He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
78:49  He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.
78:50  He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
78:51  And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham:
78:52  But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
78:53  And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
78:54  And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.
78:55  He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.
78:56  Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:
78:57  But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully 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.
78:59  When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:
78:60  So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men;
78:61  And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.
78:62  He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.
78:63  The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.
78:64  Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.
78:65  Then the LORD awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.
78:66  And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.
78:67  Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
78:68  But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
78:69  And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, 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 great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
78:72  So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
