Psalm 78:1-8 New International Version

God's Faithfulness to His Unfaithful People

78 1  [1]My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. 2  I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old- 3  things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. 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. 5  He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, 6  so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. 7  Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. 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.
