Round about their habitations.

And their years in terror.

And lied unto him with their tongue.

And provoked the Holy One of Israel.

Tools specific to Psa 78:42

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:42

They remembered not his hand,
Nor the day when he redeemed them from the adversary;

Tools specific to Psa 78:43

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:43

How he set his signs in Egypt,
And his wonders in the field of Zoan,

Tools specific to Psa 78:44

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:44

And turned their rivers into blood,
And their streams, so that they could not drink.

Tools specific to Psa 78:45

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:45

He sent among them swarms of flies, which devoured them;
And frogs, which destroyed them.

He gave also their increase unto the caterpillar,
And their labor unto the locust.

Tools specific to Psa 78:47

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:47

He destroyed their vines with hail,
And their sycomore-trees with frost.

Tools specific to Psa 78:48

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:48

He gave over their cattle also to the hail,
And their flocks to hot thunderbolts.

Tools specific to Psa 78:49

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:49

He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger,
Wrath, and indignation, and trouble,
A band of angels of evil.

Tools specific to Psa 78:50

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:50

He made a path for his anger;
He spared not their soul from death,
But gave their life over to the pestilence,

Tools specific to Psa 78:51

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:51

And smote all the first-born in Egypt,
The chief of their strength in the tents of Ham.

Tools specific to Psa 78:52

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:52

But he led forth his own people like sheep,
And guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

Tools specific to Psa 78:53

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:53

And he led them safely, so that they feared not;
But the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

Tools specific to Psa 78:54

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:54

And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary,
To this mountain, which his right hand had gotten.

Tools specific to Psa 78:55

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:55

He drove out the nations also before them,
And allotted them for an inheritance by line,
And made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.

Tools specific to Psa 78:56

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:56

Yet they tempted and rebelled against the Most High God,
And kept not his testimonies;

Tools specific to Psa 78:57

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:57

But turned back, and dealt treacherously like their fathers:
They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

Tools specific to Psa 78:58

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:58

For they provoked him to anger with their high places,
And moved him to jealousy with their graven images.

Tools specific to Psa 78:59

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:59

When God heard this, he was wroth,
And greatly abhorred Israel;

Tools specific to Psa 78:60

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:60

So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh,
The tent which he placed among men;

Tools specific to Psa 78:61

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:61

And delivered his strength into captivity,
And his glory into the adversary’s hand.

Tools specific to Psa 78:62

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:62

He gave his people over also unto the sword,
And was wroth with his inheritance.

Tools specific to Psa 78:63

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:63

Fire devoured their young men;
And their virgins had no marriage-song.

Tools specific to Psa 78:64

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:64

Their priests fell by the sword;
And their widows made no lamentation.

Tools specific to Psa 78:65

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:65

Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep,
Like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.

Tools specific to Psa 78:66

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:66

And he smote his adversaries backward:
He put them to a perpetual reproach.

Tools specific to Psa 78:67

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:67

Moreover he refused the tent of Joseph,
And chose not the tribe of Ephraim,

Tools specific to Psa 78:68

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:68

But chose the tribe of Judah,
The mount Zion which he loved.

Tools specific to Psa 78:69

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:69

And he built his sanctuary like the heights,
Like the earth which he hath established for ever.

Tools specific to Psa 78:70

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:70

He chose David also his servant,
And took him from the sheepfolds:

Tools specific to Psa 78:71

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:71

From following the ewes that have their young he brought him,
To be the shepherd of Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.

Tools specific to Psa 78:72

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:72

So he was their shepherd according to the integrity of his heart,
And guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
