Psalms Chapter 78   
   King James Version

     1  Give ear, O my people, [to] my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: [jwc]   3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. [gsn] [jfb]   4 We will not hide [them] from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.   5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   6 That the generation to come might know [them, even] the children [which] should be born; [who] should arise and declare [them] to their children: [gsn]   7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: [gsn]   8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation [that] set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God. [gsn] [jfb]   9 The children of Ephraim, [being] armed, [and] carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;   11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.   12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, [in] the field of Zoan. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.   14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.   15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave [them] drink as [out of] the great depths. [jfb] [jwc]   16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers. [jwc]   17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? [gsn] [jfb]   20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?   21 Therefore the LORD heard [this], and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel; [jfb]   22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven, [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.   25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full. [jfb] [jwc]   26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind. [gsn] [jwc]   27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea: [jwc]   28 And he let [it] fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.   29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire; [jfb]   30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat [was] yet in their mouths, [gsn] [jfb]   31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen [men] of Israel. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works. [gsn]   33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble. [jfb] [jwc]   34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God. [gsn] [jwc]   35 And they remembered that God [was] their rock, and the high God their redeemer. [jwc]   36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. [jfb] [jwc]   37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant. [gsn] [jfb]   38 But he, [being] full of compassion, forgave [their] iniquity, and destroyed [them] not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath. [gsn]   39 For he remembered that they [were but] flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again. [jfb]   40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, [and] grieve him in the desert! [jfb]   41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel. [gsn] [jfb]   42 They remembered not his hand, [nor] the day when he delivered them from the enemy. [gsn] [jwc]   43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan: [jfb]   44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.   45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost. [jfb] [jwc]   48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts. [jfb]   49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels [among them]. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence; [jfb]   51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of [their] strength in the tabernacles of Ham: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock. [jfb]   53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies. [gsn]   54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, [even to] this mountain, [which] his right hand had purchased. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents. [jfb]   56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies: [jfb]   57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow. [gsn] [jwc]   58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images. [gsn] [jfb]   59 When God heard [this], he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel: [jfb] [jwc]   60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent [which] he placed among men; [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance. [jfb]   63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage. [gsn] [jfb]   64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, [and] like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine. [gsn] [jfb]   66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach. [jfb] [jwc]   67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved. [jwc]   69 And he built his sanctuary like high [palaces], like the earth which he hath established for ever. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds: [jfb]   71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance. [jfb]   72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands. [gsn]

Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
