Lessons from Israel’s Past

A Maskil of Asaph.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:1 -

My people, hear my instruction;

listen to the words from my mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:2 -

I will declare wise sayings;

I will speak mysteries from the past —

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:3 -

things we have heard and known

and that our fathers have passed down to us.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:4 -

We will not hide them from their children,

but will tell a future generation

the praiseworthy acts of the LORD,

his might, and the wondrous works

he has performed.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:5 -

He established a testimony in Jacob

and set up a law in Israel,

which he commanded our fathers

to teach to their children

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:6 -

so that a future generation —

children yet to be born ​— ​might know.

They were to rise and tell their children

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:7 -

so that they might put their confidence in God

and not forget God’s works,

but keep his commands.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:8 -

Then they would not be like their fathers,

a stubborn and rebellious generation,

a generation whose heart was not loyal

and whose spirit was not faithful to God.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:9 -

The Ephraimite archers turned back

on the day of battle.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:10 -

They did not keep God’s covenant

and refused to live by his law.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:11 -

They forgot what he had done,

the wondrous works he had shown them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:12 -

He worked wonders in the sight of their fathers

in the land of Egypt, the territory of Zoan.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:13 -

He split the sea and brought them across;

the water stood firm like a wall.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:14 -

He led them with a cloud by day

and with a fiery light throughout the night.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:15 -

He split rocks in the wilderness

and gave them drink as abundant as the depths.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:16 -

He brought streams out of the stone

and made water flow down like rivers.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:17 -

But they continued to sin against him,

rebelling in the desert against the Most High.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:18 -

They deliberately[fn] tested God,

demanding the food they craved.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:19 -

They spoke against God, saying,

“Is God able to provide food in the wilderness?

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:20 -

“Look! He struck the rock and water gushed out;

torrents overflowed.

But can he also provide bread

or furnish meat for his people? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:21 -

Therefore, the LORD heard and became furious;

then fire broke out against Jacob,

and anger flared up against Israel

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:22 -

because they did not believe God

or rely on his salvation.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:23 -

and opened the doors of heaven.

People[fn] ate the bread of angels.[fn]

He sent them an abundant supply of food.

He made the east wind blow in the skies

and drove the south wind by his might.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:27 -

He rained meat on them like dust,

and winged birds like the sand of the seas.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:28 -

He made them fall in the camp,

all around the tents.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:29 -

The people ate and were completely satisfied,

for he gave them what they craved.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:30 -

Before they had turned from what they craved,

while the food was still in their mouths,

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:31 -

and he killed some of their best men.

He struck down Israel’s fit young men.

Despite all this, they kept sinning

and did not believe his wondrous works.

He made their days end in futility,

their years in sudden disaster.

the rest began to seek him;

They remembered that God was their rock,

the Most High God, their Redeemer.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:36 -

they lied to him with their tongues,

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:37 -

their hearts were insincere toward him,

and they were unfaithful to his covenant.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:38 -

he atoned for their iniquity

and did not destroy them.

He often turned his anger aside

and did not unleash[fn] all his wrath.

He remembered that they were only flesh,

a wind that passes and does not return.

in the wilderness

and grieved him in the desert.

when he performed his miraculous signs in Egypt

and his wonders in the territory of Zoan.

fury, indignation, and calamity —

a band of deadly messengers.[fn]

He did not spare them from death

but delivered their lives to the plague.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:51 -

the first progeny of the tents of Ham.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:52 -

He led his people out like sheep

and guided them like a flock in the wilderness.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:53 -

He led them safely, and they were not afraid;

but the sea covered their enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:54 -

He brought them to his holy territory,

to the mountain his right hand acquired.

and settled the tribes of Israel in their tents.

But they rebelliously tested the Most High God,

for they did not keep his decrees.

the tent where he resided among mankind.

His priests fell by the sword,

and the widows could not lament.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 78:65 -

The Lord awoke as if from sleep,

like a warrior from the effects of wine.

and guided them with his skillful hands.
