Psalm 78:1–8

My people, hear my instruction;

listen to what I say. o

but must tell a future generation

to teach to their children s

so that a future generation—

children yet to be born—might know.

so that they might put their confidence in God

and not forget God’s works,

but keep His commands. u

Then they would not be like their fathers,

a stubborn and rebellious generation,

a generation whose heart was not loyal

and whose spirit was not faithful to God. v
