listen to what I say. o
I will speak mysteries from the past p—
and that our fathers have passed down to us. q
but must tell a future generation
the praises of the Lord,
His might, and the wonderful works
He has performed. r
5 He established a * testimony in Jacob
and set up a law in Israel,
which He commanded our fathers
to teach to their children s
children yet to be born—might know.
They were to rise and tell their children t
and not forget God’s works,
but keep His commands. u
a stubborn and rebellious generation,
a generation whose heart was not loyal
and whose spirit was not faithful to God. v
on the day of battle. w
and refused to live by His law. x
the wonderful works He had shown them. y
in the land of Egypt, the region of Zoan. z
the water stood firm like a wall. a
and with a fiery light throughout the night. b
and gave them drink as abundant as the depths. c
and made water flow down like rivers. d
18 They deliberately f tested God,
demanding the food they craved. g
“Is God able to provide food in the wilderness?
torrents overflowed. h
But can He also provide bread
or furnish meat for His people?” i
then fire broke out against Jacob,
and anger flared up against Israel j
or rely on His salvation. k
and opened the doors of heaven. l
He gave them grain from heaven. m
He sent them an abundant supply of food. p
and drove the south wind by His might. q
and winged birds like the sand of the seas.
for He gave them what they craved. u
while the food was still in their mouths,
and He killed some of their best men.
He struck down Israel’s choice young men. v
and did not believe His wonderful works. w
their years in sudden disaster. x
the rest began to seek Him;
they repented and searched for God. y
the Most High God, their Redeemer. z
they lied to Him with their tongues, a
and they were unfaithful to His covenant. b
and did not destroy them.
He often turned His anger aside
a wind that passes and does not return. f
in the wilderness
and grieved Him in the desert.
41 They constantly tested God g
and provoked the Holy One of Israel. h
on the day He redeemed them from the foe, i
and His wonders in the region of Zoan. j
and they could not drink from their streams. k
45 He sent among them swarms of flies, l
which fed on them,
and frogs, which devastated them. m
and the fruit of their labor to the locust. n
and their sycamore fig trees with a flood.
and their cattle to lightning bolts. o
fury, indignation, and calamity—
He did not spare them from death
but delivered their lives to the plague. r
51 He struck all the firstborn s in Egypt,
and guided them like a flock in the wilderness. v
but the sea covered their enemies. w
to the mountain His right hand acquired. x
55 He drove out nations before them. y
He apportioned their inheritance by lot
and settled the tribes of Israel in their tents. z
for they did not keep His decrees. a
they became warped like a faulty bow. b
58 They enraged Him with their * high places
and provoked His jealousy with their carved images. c
He completely rejected Israel. d
61 He gave up His strength g to captivity
and His splendor to the hand of a foe. h
because He was enraged with His heritage. i
like a warrior from the effects of wine. o
He gave them lasting shame. p
and did not choose the tribe of Ephraim.
69 He built His sanctuary like the heights, r
like the earth that He established forever. s
and took him from the sheepfolds; t
to be shepherd over His people Jacob—
over Israel, His inheritance. u
and guided them with his skillful hands. v
