« Psalm 77 | Psalm 78 | Psalm 79 »
Tell the Coming GenerationA Maskil of Asaph.78:1 Give ear, O my people, to my teaching;incline your ears to the words of my mouth!
2 I will open my mouth in a parable;I will utter dark sayings from of old,
3 things that we have heard and known,that our fathers have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their children,but tell to the coming generationthe glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,and the wonders that he has done.
5 He established a testimony in Jacoband appointed a law in Israel,which he commanded our fathersto teach to their children,
6 that the next generation might know them,the children yet unborn,and arise and tell them to their children,
7 so that they should set their hope in Godand not forget the works of God,but keep his commandments;
8 and that they should not be like their fathers,a stubborn and rebellious generation,a generation whose heart was not steadfast,whose spirit was not faithful to God.
