78:1 Maschil [H4905] of Asaph [H623] . Give ear [H238] , O my people [H5971] , [to] my law [H8451] : incline [H5186] your ears [H241] to the words [H561] of my mouth [H6310] .(Maschil: or, A Psalm for Asaph to give instruction)
78:2 I will open [H6605] my mouth [H6310] in a parable [H4912] : I will utter [H5042] dark sayings [H2420] of old [H6924] :
78:3 Which we have heard [H8085] and known [H3045] , and our fathers [H1] have told [H5608] us.
78:4 We will not hide [H3582] [them] from their children [H1121] , shewing [H5608] to the generation [H1755] to come [H314] the praises [H8416] of the LORD [H3068] , and his strength [H5807] , and his wonderful works [H6381] that he hath done [H6213] .
78:5 For he established [H6965] a testimony [H5715] in Jacob [H3290] , and appointed [H7760] a law [H8451] in Israel [H3478] , which he commanded [H6680] our fathers [H1] , that they should make them known [H3045] to their children [H1121] :
78:6 That the generation [H1755] to come [H314] might know [H3045] [them, even] the children [H1121] [which] should be born [H3205] ; [who] should arise [H6965] and declare [H5608] [them] to their children [H1121] :
78:7 That they might set [H7760] their hope [H3689] in God [H430] , and not forget [H7911] the works [H4611] of God [H410] , but keep [H5341] his commandments [H4687] :
78:8 And might not be as their fathers [H1] , a stubborn [H5637] and rebellious [H4784] generation [H1755] ; a generation [H1755] [that] set [H3559] not their heart [H3820] aright [H3559] , and whose spirit [H7307] was not stedfast [H539] with God [H410] .(that: Heb. that prepared not their heart)
78:9 The children [H1121] of Ephraim [H669] , [being] armed [H5401] , [and] carrying [H7411] bows [H7198] , turned back [H2015] in the day [H3117] of battle [H7128] .(carrying: Heb. throwing forth)
78:10 They kept [H8104] not the covenant [H1285] of God [H430] , and refused [H3985] to walk [H3212] in his law [H8451] ;
78:11 And forgat [H7911] his works [H5949] , and his wonders [H6381] that he had shewed [H7200] them.
78:12 Marvellous things [H6382] did [H6213] he in the sight [H5048] of their fathers [H1] , in the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] , [in] the field [H7704] of Zoan [H6814] .
78:13 He divided [H1234] the sea [H3220] , and caused them to pass through [H5674] ; and he made the waters [H4325] to stand [H5324] as an heap [H5067] .
78:14 In the daytime [H3119] also he led [H5148] them with a cloud [H6051] , and all the night [H3915] with a light [H216] of fire [H784] .
78:15 He clave [H1234] the rocks [H6697] in the wilderness [H4057] , and gave [them] drink [H8248] as [out of] the great [H7227] depths [H8415] .
78:16 He brought [H3318] streams [H5140] also out of the rock [H5553] , and caused waters [H4325] to run down [H3381] like rivers [H5104] .
78:17 And they sinned [H2398] yet more [H3254] against him by provoking [H4784] the most High [H5945] in the wilderness [H6723] .
78:18 And they tempted [H5254] God [H410] in their heart [H3824] by asking [H7592] meat [H400] for their lust [H5315] .
78:19 Yea, they spake [H1696] against God [H430] ; they said [H559] , Can [H3201] God [H410] furnish [H6186] a table [H7979] in the wilderness [H4057] ?(furnish: Heb. order)
78:20 Behold, he smote [H5221] the rock [H6697] , that the waters [H4325] gushed out [H2100] , and the streams [H5158] overflowed [H7857] ; can [H3201] he give [H5414] bread [H3899] also? can [H3201] he provide [H3559] flesh [H7607] for his people [H5971] ?
78:21 Therefore the LORD [H3068] heard [H8085] [this], and was wroth [H5674] : so a fire [H784] was kindled [H5400] against Jacob [H3290] , and anger [H639] also came up [H5927] against Israel [H3478] ;
78:22 Because they believed [H539] not in God [H430] , and trusted [H982] not in his salvation [H3444] :
78:23 Though he had commanded [H6680] the clouds [H7834] from above [H4605] , and opened [H6605] the doors [H1817] of heaven [H8064] ,
78:24 And had rained down [H4305] manna [H4478] upon them to eat [H398] , and had given [H5414] them of the corn [H1715] of heaven [H8064] .
78:25 Man [H376] did eat [H398] angels' [H47] food [H3899] : he sent [H7971] them meat [H6720] to the full [H7648] .(Man: or, Every one did eat the bread of the mighty)
78:26 He caused an east wind [H6921] to blow [H5265] in the heaven [H8064] : and by his power [H5797] he brought in [H5090] the south wind [H8486] .(to blow: Heb. to go)
78:27 He rained [H4305] flesh [H7607] also upon them as dust [H6083] , and feathered [H3671] fowls [H5775] like as the sand [H2344] of the sea [H3220] :(feathered: Heb. fowl of wing)
78:28 And he let [it] fall [H5307] in the midst [H7130] of their camp [H4264] , round about [H5439] their habitations [H4908] .
78:29 So they did eat [H398] , and were well [H3966] filled [H7646] : for he gave [H935] them their own desire [H8378] ;
78:30 They were not estranged [H2114] from their lust [H8378] . But while their meat [H400] [was] yet in their mouths [H6310] ,
78:31 The wrath [H639] of God [H430] came [H5927] upon them, and slew [H2026] the fattest [H4924] of them, and smote down [H3766] the chosen [H970] [men] of Israel [H3478] .(smote: Heb. made to bow)(Chosen: or, young men)
78:32 For all this they sinned [H2398] still, and believed [H539] not for his wondrous works [H6381] .
78:33 Therefore their days [H3117] did he consume [H3615] in vanity [H1892] , and their years [H8141] in trouble [H928] .
78:34 When he slew [H2026] them, then they sought [H1875] him: and they returned [H7725] and enquired early [H7836] after God [H410] .
78:35 And they remembered [H2142] that God [H430] [was] their rock [H6697] , and the high [H5945] God [H410] their redeemer [H1350] .
78:36 Nevertheless they did flatter [H6601] him with their mouth [H6310] , and they lied [H3576] unto him with their tongues [H3956] .
78:37 For their heart [H3820] was not right [H3559] with him, neither were they stedfast [H539] in his covenant [H1285] .
78:38 But he, [being] full of compassion [H7349] , forgave [H3722] [their] iniquity [H5771] , and destroyed [H7843] [them] not: yea, many a time [H7235] turned [H7725] he his anger [H639] away [H7725] , and did not stir up [H5782] all his wrath [H2534] .
78:39 For he remembered [H2142] that they [were but] flesh [H1320] ; a wind [H7307] that passeth away [H1980] , and cometh not again [H7725] .
78:40 How [H4100] oft did they provoke [H4784] him in the wilderness [H4057] , [and] grieve [H6087] him in the desert [H3452] !(provoke: or, rebel against)
78:41 Yea, they turned back [H7725] and tempted [H5254] God [H410] , and limited [H8428] the Holy One [H6918] of Israel [H3478] .
78:42 They remembered [H2142] not his hand [H3027] , [nor] the day [H3117] when he delivered [H6299] them from the enemy [H6862] .(from: or, from affliction)
78:43 How he had wrought [H7760] his signs [H226] in Egypt [H4714] , and his wonders [H4159] in the field [H7704] of Zoan [H6814] :(wrought: Heb. set)
78:44 And had turned [H2015] their rivers [H2975] into blood [H1818] ; and their floods [H5140] , that they could not drink [H8354] .
78:45 He sent [H7971] divers sorts of flies [H6157] among them, which devoured [H398] them; and frogs [H6854] , which destroyed [H7843] them.
78:46 He gave [H5414] also their increase [H2981] unto the caterpiller [H2625] , and their labour [H3018] unto the locust [H697] .
78:47 He destroyed [H2026] their vines [H1612] with hail [H1259] , and their sycomore trees [H8256] with frost [H2602] .(destroyed: Heb. killed)(frost: or, great hailstones)
78:48 He gave up [H5462] their cattle [H1165] also to the hail [H1259] , and their flocks [H4735] to hot thunderbolts [H7565] .(gave: Heb. shut up)(hot: or, lightnings)
78:49 He cast [H7971] upon them the fierceness [H2740] of his anger [H639] , wrath [H5678] , and indignation [H2195] , and trouble [H6869] , by sending [H4917] evil [H7451] angels [H4397] [among them].
78:50 He made [H6424] a way [H5410] to his anger [H639] ; he spared [H2820] not their soul [H5315] from death [H4194] , but gave [H5462] their life [H2416] over [H5462] to the pestilence [H1698] ;(He made: Heb. He weighed a path)(life: or, beasts to the murrain)
78:51 And smote [H5221] all the firstborn [H1060] in Egypt [H4714] ; the chief [H7225] of [their] strength [H202] in the tabernacles [H168] of Ham [H2526] :
78:52 But made his own people [H5971] to go forth [H5265] like sheep [H6629] , and guided [H5090] them in the wilderness [H4057] like a flock [H5739] .
78:53 And he led [H5148] them on safely [H983] , so that they feared [H6342] not: but the sea [H3220] overwhelmed [H3680] their enemies [H341] .(overwhelmed: Heb. covered)
78:54 And he brought [H935] them to the border [H1366] of his sanctuary [H6944] , [even to] this mountain [H2022] , [which] his right hand [H3225] had purchased [H7069] .
78:55 He cast out [H1644] the heathen [H1471] also before [H6440] them, and divided [H5307] them an inheritance [H5159] by line [H2256] , and made the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] to dwell [H7931] in their tents [H168] .
78:56 Yet they tempted [H5254] and provoked [H4784] the most high [H5945] God [H430] , and kept [H8104] not his testimonies [H5713] :
78:57 But turned back [H5472] , and dealt unfaithfully [H898] like their fathers [H1] : they were turned aside [H2015] like a deceitful [H7423] bow [H7198] .
78:58 For they provoked him to anger [H3707] with their high places [H1116] , and moved him to jealousy [H7065] with their graven images [H6456] .
78:59 When God [H430] heard [H8085] [this], he was wroth [H5674] , and greatly [H3966] abhorred [H3988] Israel [H3478] :
78:60 So that he forsook [H5203] the tabernacle [H4908] of Shiloh [H7887] , the tent [H168] [which] he placed [H7931] among men [H120] ;
78:61 And delivered [H5414] his strength [H5797] into captivity [H7628] , and his glory [H8597] into the enemy's [H6862] hand [H3027] .
78:62 He gave [H5462] his people [H5971] over [H5462] also unto the sword [H2719] ; and was wroth [H5674] with his inheritance [H5159] .
78:63 The fire [H784] consumed [H398] their young men [H970] ; and their maidens [H1330] were not given to marriage [H1984] .(given: Heb. praised)
78:64 Their priests [H3548] fell [H5307] by the sword [H2719] ; and their widows [H490] made no lamentation [H1058] .
78:65 Then the Lord [H136] awaked [H3364] as one out of sleep [H3463] , [and] like a mighty man [H1368] that shouteth [H7442] by reason of wine [H3196] .
78:66 And he smote [H5221] his enemies [H6862] in the hinder parts [H268] : he put [H5414] them to a perpetual [H5769] reproach [H2781] .
78:67 Moreover he refused [H3988] the tabernacle [H168] of Joseph [H3130] , and chose [H977] not the tribe [H7626] of Ephraim [H669] :
78:68 But chose [H977] the tribe [H7626] of Judah [H3063] , the mount [H2022] Zion [H6726] which he loved [H157] .
78:69 And he built [H1129] his sanctuary [H4720] like high [H7311] [palaces], like the earth [H776] which he hath established [H3245] for ever [H5769] .(established: Heb. founded)
78:70 He chose [H977] David [H1732] also his servant [H5650] , and took [H3947] him from the sheepfolds [H4356] [H6629] :
78:71 From following [H310] the ewes great with young [H5763] he brought [H935] him to feed [H7462] Jacob [H3290] his people [H5971] , and Israel [H3478] his inheritance [H5159] .(following: Heb. after)
78:72 So he fed [H7462] them according to the integrity [H8537] of his heart [H3824] ; and guided [H5148] them by the skilfulness [H8394] of his hands [H3709] .
