NASB — Psalms 78 — KJV

God’s Guidance of His People in Spite of Their Unfaithfulness.

A Maskil of Asaph.

  1 aListen, O my people, to my Iinstruction;
  bIncline your ears to the words of my mouth.
  2 I will aopen my mouth in a parable;
  I will utter bdark sayings of old,
  3 Which we have heard and known,
  And aour fathers have told us.
  4 We will anot conceal them from their children,
  But btell to the generation to come the praises of the LORD,
  And His strength and His cwondrous works that He has done.

  5 ¶ For He established a atestimony in Jacob
  And appointed a blaw in Israel,
  Which He ccommanded our fathers
  That they should Idteach them to their children,
  6 aThat the generation to come might know, [even] bthe children [yet] to be born,
  [That] they may arise and ctell [them] to their children,
  7 That they should put their confidence in God
  And anot forget the works of God,
  But bkeep His commandments,
  8 And anot be like their fathers,
  A bstubborn and rebellious generation,
  A generation that cdid not Iprepare its heart
  And whose spirit was not dfaithful to God.

  9 ¶ The sons of Ephraim Iwere aarchers equipped with bows,
  [Yet] bthey turned back in the day of battle.
  10 They adid not keep the covenant of God
  And refused to bwalk in His law;
  11 They aforgot His deeds
  And His Imiracles that He had shown them.
  12 aHe wrought wonders before their fathers
  In the land of Egypt, in the bfield of Zoan.
  13 He adivided the sea and caused them to pass through,
  And He made the waters stand bup like a heap.
  14 Then He led them with the cloud by aday
  And all the night with a blight of fire.
  15 He asplit the rocks in the wilderness
  And gave [them] abundant drink like the ocean depths.
  16 He abrought forth streams also from the rock
  And caused waters to run down like rivers.

  By asking bfood according to their desire.
  19 Then they spoke against God;
  They said, “aCan God prepare a table in the wilderness?
  20 “Behold, He astruck the rock so that waters gushed out,
  And streams were overflowing;
  Can He give bread also?
  Will He provide Ibmeat for His people?”

  21 ¶ Therefore the LORD heard and Iwas afull of wrath;
  And a fire was kindled against Jacob
  And anger also mounted against Israel,
  22 Because they adid not believe in God
  And did not trust in His salvation.
  23 Yet He commanded the clouds above
  And aopened the doors of heaven;
  24 He arained down manna upon them to eat
  And gave them Ibfood from heaven.
  25 Man did eat the bread of Iangels;
  He sent them IIfood IIIain abundance.
  26 He acaused the east wind to blow in the heavens
  And by His Ipower He directed the south wind.
  27 When He rained Imeat upon them like the dust,
  Even awinged fowl like the sand of the seas,
  28 Then He let [them] fall in the midst of Itheir camp,
  Round about their dwellings.
  29 So they aate and were well filled,
  And their desire He gave to them.
  30 IBefore they had satisfied their desire,
  aWhile their food was in their mouths,
  31 The aanger of God rose against them
  And killed Isome of their bstoutest ones,
  And IIsubdued the choice men of Israel.
  32 In spite of all this they astill sinned
  And bdid not believe in His wonderful works.
  33 So He brought atheir days to an end in Ifutility
  And their years in sudden terror.

  And bgrieved Him in the cdesert!
  41 Again and again they Iatempted God,
  And pained the bHoly One of Israel.
  42 They adid not remember bHis Ipower,
  The day when He credeemed them from the adversary,
  43 When He performed His asigns in Egypt
  And His bmarvels in the field of Zoan,
  44 And aturned their rivers to blood,
  And their streams, they could not drink.
  45 He sent among them swarms of aflies which devoured them,
  And bfrogs which destroyed them.
  46 He gave also their crops to the agrasshopper
  And the product of their labor to the blocust.
  47 He Idestroyed their vines with ahailstones
  And their sycamore trees with frost.
  48 He gave over their acattle also to the hailstones
  And their herds to bolts of lightning.
  49 He asent upon them His burning anger,
  Fury and indignation and trouble,
  IA band of destroying angels.
  50 He leveled a path for His anger;
  He did not spare their soul from death,
  But agave over their life to the plague,
  51 And asmote all the firstborn in Egypt,
  The bfirst [issue] of their virility in the tents of cHam.
  52 But He aled forth His own people like sheep
  And guided them in the wilderness blike a flock;
  53 He led them asafely, so that they did not fear;
  But bthe sea engulfed their enemies.

  And made the tribes of Israel dwell in their tents.
  56 Yet they Iatempted and brebelled against the Most High God
  And did not keep His testimonies,
  57 But turned back and aacted treacherously like their fathers;
  They bturned aside like a treacherous bow.
  58 For they aprovoked Him with their bhigh places
  And caroused His jealousy with their dgraven images.
  59 When God heard, He Iwas filled with awrath
  And greatly babhorred Israel;
  60 So that He aabandoned the bdwelling place at Shiloh,
  The tent Iwhich He had pitched among men,
  61 And gave up His astrength to captivity
  And His glory binto the hand of the adversary.
  62 He also adelivered His people to the sword,

An exhortation both to learn and to preach the Law of God.

1 ¶ [[Maschil of Asaph.]] Give ear, O my people, [to] my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: 3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. 4 We will not hide [them] from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. 5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: 6 That the generation to come might know [them, even] the children [which] should be born; [who] should arise and declare [them] to their children: 7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: 8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation [that] set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

The story of God's wrath against the incredulous and disobedient.

9 The children of Ephraim, [being] armed, [and] carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle. 10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law; 11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them. 12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, [in] the field of Zoan. 13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap. 14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire. 15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave [them] drink as [out of] the great depths. 16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers. 17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness. 18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust. 19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? 20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people? 21 Therefore the LORD heard [this], and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel; 22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation: 23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven, 24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. 25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full. 26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind. 27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea: 28 And he let [it] fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations. 29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire; 30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat [was] yet in their mouths, 31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen [men] of Israel. 32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works. 33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble. 34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God. 35 And they remembered that God [was] their rock, and the high God their redeemer. 36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. 37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant. 38 But he, [being] full of compassion, forgave [their] iniquity, and destroyed [them] not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath. 39 For he remembered that they [were but] flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again. 40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, [and] grieve him in the desert! 41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel. 42 They remembered not his hand, [nor] the day when he delivered them from the enemy. 43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan: 44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink. 45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them. 46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust. 47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost. 48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts. 49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels [among them]. 50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence; 51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of [their] strength in the tabernacles of Ham: 52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock. 53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies. 54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, [even to] this mountain, [which] his right hand had purchased. 55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents. 56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies: 57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow. 58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images. 59 When God heard [this], he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel: 60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent [which] he placed among men; 61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand. 62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance. 63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage. 64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation. 65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, [and] like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine. 66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.

The Israelites being rejected, God chose Judah, Zion, and David.

67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim: 68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved. 69 And he built his sanctuary like high [palaces], like the earth which he hath established for ever. 70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds: 71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance. 72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
