That the generation to come might know, even the children who should be born; Who should arise and tell their children,
That they might set their hope in God, And not forget the works of God, But keep his commandments,
And might not be as their fathers, A stubborn and rebellious generation, A generation that didn't make their hearts loyal, Whose spirit was not steadfast with God.
The children of Ephraim, being armed and carrying bows, Turned back in the day of battle.
They didn't keep the covenant of God, And refused to walk in his law.
They forgot his doings, His wondrous works that he had shown them.
Marvelous things did he in the sight of their fathers, In the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
He split the sea, and caused them to pass through; He made the waters stand as a heap.
In the daytime he also led them with a cloud, All the night with a light of fire.
He split rocks in the wilderness, And gave them drink abundantly as out of the depths.
He brought streams also out of the rock, And caused waters to run down like rivers.
