Listen,1 O heavens,2 and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.32
Let my teaching fall like rain4 and my words descend like dew,56 like showers7 on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
I will proclaim8 the name of the LORD.9 Oh, praise the greatness10 of our God!
He is the Rock,11 his works are perfect,12 and all his ways are just. A faithful God13 who does no wrong, upright14 and just is he.155
They have acted corruptly toward him; to their shame they are no longer his children, but a warped and crooked generation.a166
Is this the way you repay17 the LORD, O foolish18 and unwise people?19 Is he not your Father,20 your Creator,b who made you and formed you?21
