Psalm 78:1–8

1 Give ear, O my people, to my law;

Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

2 I will open my mouth in a bparable;

I will utter 2dark sayings of old,

3 Which we have heard and known,

And our fathers have told us.

4 cWe will not hide them from their children,

dTelling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,

And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.

5 For eHe established a testimony in Jacob,

And appointed a law in Israel,

Which He commanded our fathers,

That fthey should make them known to their children;

6 gThat the generation to come might know them,

The children who would be born,

That they may arise and declare them to their children,

7 That they may set their hope in God,

And not forget the works of God,

But keep His commandments;

8 And hmay not be like their fathers,

iA stubborn and rebellious generation,

A generation jthat did not 3set its heart aright,

And whose spirit was not faithful to God.
