2 I will offerb a parable with my mouth.
I will pour out riddles from long ago,
and our ancestorsc have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their children,d
telling the next generation the praises of Yahweh,
and his power and his wonders that he has done.
and appointed a lawe in Israel,
which he commanded our ancestorsf
to teach to their children,
children yet to be born—
that they might rise up and tell their children,
and not forget the deeds of God,
but keep his commandments,
8 and not be like their ancestors,g
a stubborn and rebellious generation,
a generation that did not make ready its heart,
whose spirit was not faithful to God.
9 The sons of Ephraim, ⌊armed with archers⌋,h
turned back on the day of battle.
and refused to go in his law.i
and his wonders that he had shown them.
12 In front of their ancestorsj he did a wonder,
in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan.
and he caused waters to stand like a heap.
and all night with a fiery light.
and provided drink abundantly as from the depths.
and caused water to flow down like rivers.
by rebelling against the Most High in the desert.
by asking food ⌊for their craving⌋.k
They said, “Is God able
to prepare a table in the wilderness?
and streams gushed out,
but can he also give food
or provide meat for his people?”
and he was very angry,
and a fire was kindled against Jacob,
and his anger also rose up against Israel,
and they did not trust his salvation.
and opened the doors of heaven,
and gave them the grain of heaven.
25 Humankind ate the bread of ⌊angels⌋.l
He sent them food enough to be satisfied.
and drove along the south wind by his strength.
even winged birdsm like the sand of the seas.
all around his dwellings.
and he brought about what they craved.
while their food was still in their mouth,
and he killed some of the stoutest of them,
even the young men of Israel he caused to bow down in death.
Literally “armed with shooters of the bow”
Literally “for their soul”
Literally “mighty ones”
