Psalm 78:1–8

My people, hear my instruction;

listen to the words from my mouth.h

I will declare wise sayings;

I will speak mysteries from the pasti

things we have heard and known

and that our ancestors have passed down to us.j

We will not hide them from their children,

but will tell a future generation

the praiseworthy acts of the Lord,

his might, and the wondrous works

he has performed.k

He established a testimony in Jacob

and set up a law in Israel,

which he commanded our ancestors

to teach to their childrenl

so that a future generation—

children yet to be born—might know.

They were to rise and tell their childrenm

so that they might put their confidence in God

and not forget God’s works,

but keep his commands.n

Then they would not be like their ancestors,

a stubborn and rebellious generation,

a generation whose heart was not loyal

and whose spirit was not faithful to God.o
