for he is our God. We are the people he watches over, the sheep under his care. Oh, that you would listen to his voice today!
The LORD says, "Don't harden your hearts as Israel did at Meribah, as they did at Massah in the wilderness.
For there your ancestors tried my patience; they courted my wrath though they had seen my many miracles.
For forty years I was angry with them, and I said, 'They are a people whose hearts turn away from me. They refuse to do what I tell them.'
So in my anger I made a vow: 'They will never enter my place of rest.'"
