kjv@Psalms:78:1 @ Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

kjv@Psalms:78:3 @ Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
kjv@Psalms:78:4 @ 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.
kjv@Psalms:78:5 @ 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:
kjv@Psalms:78:6 @ That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
kjv@Psalms:78:7 @ That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
kjv@Psalms:78:8 @ 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.
kjv@Psalms:78:9 @ The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.

kjv@Psalms:78:15 @ He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.

kjv@Psalms:78:19 @ Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
kjv@Psalms:78:20 @ 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?
kjv@Psalms:78:21 @ Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
kjv@Psalms:78:22 @ Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
kjv@Psalms:78:23 @ Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
kjv@Psalms:78:24 @ And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.

kjv@Psalms:78:28 @ And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
kjv@Psalms:78:29 @ So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
kjv@Psalms:78:30 @ They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,
kjv@Psalms:78:31 @ The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
kjv@Psalms:78:32 @ For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
kjv@Psalms:78:33 @ Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.

kjv@Psalms:78:37 @ For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.

kjv@Psalms:78:50 @ He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
kjv@Psalms:78:51 @ And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham:
kjv@Psalms:78:52 @ But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

kjv@Psalms:78:61 @ And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.
kjv@Psalms:78:62 @ He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.
kjv@Psalms:78:63 @ The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.
kjv@Psalms:78:64 @ Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.

kjv@Psalms:78:66 @ And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.
kjv@Psalms:78:67 @ Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
kjv@Psalms:78:68 @ But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
kjv@Psalms:78:69 @ And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever.
