CSB 4 We must not hide them from their children, but must tell a future generation the praises of the Lord, His might, and the wonderful works He has performed. 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. CSB 5 He established a testimony in Jacob and set up a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers to teach 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, CSB 6 so that a future generation- children yet to be born-might know.

But can He also provide bread or furnish 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?
