Psalms 78:11 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 78:11

And forgat his works, and his wonders
That is, his wonderful works, the miracles he wrought in their favour, and for their deliverance, afterwards particularly mentioned; these were not only forgotten in the next generation, ( Judges 15:10 ) , but in a few years, yea, in a few months, nay, in a few days, when they had been but three days' journey in the wilderness, after their passage through the Red sea, see ( Exodus 15:1 Exodus 15:22 Exodus 15:24 ) , which occasioned the observation of the psalmist, ( Psalms 106:12 Psalms 106:13 ) , that he had showed them; done in their sight, and in the sight of their fathers, as follows.
