Psalm 78

NAS 1 Listen, O my people, to my instruction; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth. NIV 1 My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. NAS 2 I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old, NIV 2 I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old— NAS 3 Which we have heard and known, And our fathers have told us. NIV 3 things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. NAS 4 We will not conceal them from their children, But tell to the generation to come the praises of the LORD , And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done. NIV 4 We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. NAS 5 For He established a testimony in Jacob And appointed a law in Israel, Which He commanded our fathers That they should teach them to their children, NIV 5 He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, NAS 6 That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, That they may arise and tell them to their children, NIV 6 so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. NAS 7 That they should put their confidence in God And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments, NIV 7 Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. NAS 8 And not be like their fathers, A stubborn and rebellious generation, A generation that did not prepare its heart And whose spirit was not faithful to God. NIV 8 They would not be like their ancestors— a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him. NAS 9 The sons of Ephraim were archers equipped with bows, Yet they turned back in the day of battle. NIV 9 The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows, turned back on the day of battle; NAS 10 They did not keep the covenant of God And refused to walk in His law; NIV 10 they did not keep God’s covenant and refused to live by his law. NAS 11 They forgot His deeds And His miracles that He had shown them. NIV 11 They forgot what he had done, the wonders he had shown them. NAS 12 He wrought wonders before their fathers In the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan. NIV 12 He did miracles in the sight of their ancestors in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan. NAS 13 He divided the sea and caused them to pass through, And He made the waters stand up like a heap. NIV 13 He divided the sea and led them through; he made the water stand up like a wall. NAS 14 Then He led them with the cloud by day And all the night with a light of fire. NIV 14 He guided them with the cloud by day and with light from the fire all night. NAS 15 He split the rocks in the wilderness And gave them abundant drink like the ocean depths. NIV 15 He split the rocks in the wilderness and gave them water as abundant as the seas; NAS 16 He brought forth streams also from the rock And caused waters to run down like rivers. NIV 16 he brought streams out of a rocky crag and made water flow down like rivers. NAS 17 Yet they still continued to sin against Him, To rebel against the Most High in the desert. NIV 17 But they continued to sin against him, rebelling in the wilderness against the Most High. NAS 18 And in their heart they put God to the test By asking food according to their desire. NIV 18 They willfully put God to the test by demanding the food they craved. NAS 19 Then they spoke against God; They said, "Can God prepare a table in the wilderness? NIV 19 They spoke against God; they said, “Can God really spread a table in the wilderness? NAS 20 "Behold, He struck the rock so that waters gushed out, And streams were overflowing; Can He give bread also? Will He provide meat for His people?" NIV 20 True, he struck the rock, and water gushed out, streams flowed abundantly, but can he also give us bread? Can he supply meat for his people?” NAS 21 Therefore the LORD heard and was full of wrath; And a fire was kindled against Jacob And anger also mounted against Israel, NIV 21 When the LORD heard them, he was furious; his fire broke out against Jacob, and his wrath rose against Israel, NAS 22 Because they did not believe in God And did not trust in His salvation. NIV 22 for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance. NAS 23 Yet He commanded the clouds above And opened the doors of heaven; NIV 23 Yet he gave a command to the skies above and opened the doors of the heavens; NAS 24 He rained down manna upon them to eat And gave them food from heaven. NIV 24 he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven. NAS 25 Man did eat the bread of angels; He sent them food in abundance. NIV 25 Human beings ate the bread of angels; he sent them all the food they could eat. NAS 26 He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens And by His power He directed the south wind. NIV 26 He let loose the east wind from the heavens and by his power made the south wind blow. NAS 27 When He rained meat upon them like the dust, Even winged fowl like the sand of the seas, NIV 27 He rained meat down on them like dust, birds like sand on the seashore. NAS 28 Then He let them fall in the midst of their camp, Round about their dwellings. NIV 28 He made them come down inside their camp, all around their tents. NAS 29 So they ate and were well filled, And their desire He gave to them. NIV 29 They ate till they were gorged— he had given them what they craved. NAS 30 Before they had satisfied their desire, While their food was in their mouths, NIV 30 But before they turned from what they craved, even while the food was still in their mouths, NAS 31 The anger of God rose against them And killed some of their stoutest ones, And subdued the choice men of Israel. NIV 31 God’s anger rose against them; he put to death the sturdiest among them, cutting down the young men of Israel. NAS 32 In spite of all this they still sinned And did not believe in His wonderful works. NIV 32 In spite of all this, they kept on sinning; in spite of his wonders, they did not believe. NAS 33 So He brought their days to an end in futility And their years in sudden terror. NIV 33 So he ended their days in futility and their years in terror. NAS 34 When He killed them, then they sought Him, And returned and searched diligently for God; NIV 34 Whenever God slew them, they would seek him; they eagerly turned to him again. NAS 35 And they remembered that God was their rock, And the Most High God their Redeemer. NIV 35 They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer. NAS 36 But they deceived Him with their mouth And lied to Him with their tongue. NIV 36 But then they would flatter him with their mouths, lying to him with their tongues; NAS 37 For their heart was not steadfast toward Him, Nor were they faithful in His covenant. NIV 37 their hearts were not loyal to him, they were not faithful to his covenant. NAS 38 But He, being compassionate, forgave their iniquity and did not destroy them; And often He restrained His anger And did not arouse all His wrath. NIV 38 Yet he was merciful; he forgave their iniquities and did not destroy them. Time after time he restrained his anger and did not stir up his full wrath. NAS 39 Thus He remembered that they were but flesh, A wind that passes and does not return. NIV 39 He remembered that they were but flesh, a passing breeze that does not return. NAS 40 How often they rebelled against Him in the wilderness And grieved Him in the desert! NIV 40 How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved him in the wasteland! NAS 41 Again and again they tempted God, And pained the Holy One of Israel. NIV 41 Again and again they put God to the test; they vexed the Holy One of Israel. NAS 42 They did not remember His power, The day when He redeemed them from the adversary, NIV 42 They did not remember his power— the day he redeemed them from the oppressor, NAS 43 When He performed His signs in Egypt And His marvels in the field of Zoan, NIV 43 the day he displayed his signs in Egypt, his wonders in the region of Zoan. NAS 44 And turned their rivers to blood, And their streams, they could not drink. NIV 44 He turned their river into blood; they could not drink from their streams. NAS 45 He sent among them swarms of flies which devoured them, And frogs which destroyed them. NIV 45 He sent swarms of flies that devoured them, and frogs that devastated them. NAS 46 He gave also their crops to the grasshopper And the product of their labor to the locust. NIV 46 He gave their crops to the grasshopper, their produce to the locust. NAS 47 He destroyed their vines with hailstones And their sycamore trees with frost. NIV 47 He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamore-figs with sleet. NAS 48 He gave over their cattle also to the hailstones And their herds to bolts of lightning. NIV 48 He gave over their cattle to the hail, their livestock to bolts of lightning. NAS 49 He sent upon them His burning anger, Fury and indignation and trouble, A band of destroying angels. NIV 49 He unleashed against them his hot anger, his wrath, indignation and hostility— a band of destroying angels. NAS 50 He leveled a path for His anger; He did not spare their soul from death, But gave over their life to the plague, NIV 50 He prepared a path for his anger; he did not spare them from death but gave them over to the plague. NAS 51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt, The first issue of their virility in the tents of Ham. NIV 51 He struck down all the firstborn of Egypt, the firstfruits of manhood in the tents of Ham. NAS 52 But He led forth His own people like sheep And guided them in the wilderness like a flock; NIV 52 But he brought his people out like a flock; he led them like sheep through the wilderness. NAS 53 He led them safely, so that they did not fear; But the sea engulfed their enemies. NIV 53 He guided them safely, so they were unafraid; but the sea engulfed their enemies. NAS 54 So He brought them to His holy land, To this hill country which His right hand had gained. NIV 54 And so he brought them to the border of his holy land, to the hill country his right hand had taken. NAS 55 He also drove out the nations before them And apportioned them for an inheritance by measurement, And made the tribes of Israel dwell in their tents. NIV 55 He drove out nations before them and allotted their lands to them as an inheritance; he settled the tribes of Israel in their homes. NAS 56 Yet they tempted and rebelled against the Most High God And did not keep His testimonies, NIV 56 But they put God to the test and rebelled against the Most High; they did not keep his statutes. NAS 57 But turned back and acted treacherously like their fathers; They turned aside like a treacherous bow. NIV 57 Like their ancestors they were disloyal and faithless, as unreliable as a faulty bow. NAS 58 For they provoked Him with their high places And aroused His jealousy with their graven images. NIV 58 They angered him with their high places; they aroused his jealousy with their idols. NAS 59 When God heard, He was filled with wrath And greatly abhorred Israel; NIV 59 When God heard them, he was furious; he rejected Israel completely. NAS 60 So that He abandoned the dwelling place at Shiloh, The tent which He had pitched among men, NIV 60 He abandoned the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent he had set up among humans. NAS 61 And gave up His strength to captivity And His glory into the hand of the adversary. NIV 61 He sent the ark of his might into captivity, his splendor into the hands of the enemy. NAS 62 He also delivered His people to the sword, And was filled with wrath at His inheritance. NIV 62 He gave his people over to the sword; he was furious with his inheritance. NAS 63 Fire devoured His young men, And His virgins had no wedding songs. NIV 63 Fire consumed their young men, and their young women had no wedding songs; NAS 64 His priests fell by the sword, And His widows could not weep. NIV 64 their priests were put to the sword, and their widows could not weep. NAS 65 Then the Lord awoke as if from sleep, Like a warrior overcome by wine. NIV 65 Then the Lord awoke as from sleep, as a warrior wakes from the stupor of wine. NAS 66 He drove His adversaries backward; He put on them an everlasting reproach. NIV 66 He beat back his enemies; he put them to everlasting shame. NAS 67 He also rejected the tent of Joseph, And did not choose the tribe of Ephraim, NIV 67 Then he rejected the tents of Joseph, he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim; NAS 68 But chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion which He loved.
