And grieved Him in the desert!

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:42

They did not remember His [fn]power,
The day when He redeemed them from the adversary,

Tools specific to Psa 78:43

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:43

When He performed His signs in Egypt
And His marvels in the field of Zoan,

Tools specific to Psa 78:44

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:44

And turned their rivers to blood,
And their streams, 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.

Tools specific to Psa 78:46

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:46

He gave also their crops to the grasshopper
And the product of their labor to the locust.

Tools specific to Psa 78:47

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:47

He [fn]destroyed their vines with hailstones
And their sycamore trees with frost.

Tools specific to Psa 78:48

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:48

He gave over their cattle also to the hailstones
And their herds to bolts of lightning.

Tools specific to Psa 78:49

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:49

He sent upon them His burning anger,
Fury and indignation and trouble,
[fn]A band of destroying angels.

Tools specific to Psa 78:50

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:50

He leveled a path for His anger;
He did not spare their soul from death,
But gave over their life to the plague,

Tools specific to Psa 78:51

And smote all the firstborn in Egypt,
The first issue of their virility 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

He led them safely, so that they did not fear;
But the sea engulfed their enemies.

Tools specific to Psa 78:54

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:54

So He brought them to His holy [fn]land,
To this [fn]hill country which His right hand had gained.

Tools specific to Psa 78:55

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:55

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

Tools specific to Psa 78:56

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:56

Yet they [fn]tempted and rebelled against the Most High God
And did not keep His testimonies,

Tools specific to Psa 78:57

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:57

But turned back and acted treacherously like their fathers;
They turned aside like a treacherous bow.

Tools specific to Psa 78:58

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:58

For they provoked Him with their high places
And aroused His jealousy with their graven images.

Tools specific to Psa 78:59

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:59

When God heard, He [fn]was filled with wrath
And greatly abhorred Israel;

Tools specific to Psa 78:60

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:60

So that He abandoned the dwelling place at Shiloh,
The tent [fn]which He had pitched among men,

Tools specific to Psa 78:61

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:61

And gave up His strength to captivity
And His glory into the hand of the adversary.

Tools specific to Psa 78:62

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:62

He also delivered His people to the sword,
And [fn]was filled with wrath at His inheritance.

Tools specific to Psa 78:63

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:63

Fire devoured [fn]His young men,
And [fn]His virgins had no wedding songs.

Tools specific to Psa 78:64

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:64

[fn]His priests fell by the sword,
And [fn]His widows could not weep.

Tools specific to Psa 78:65

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:65

Then the Lord awoke as if from sleep,
Like a warrior [fn]overcome by wine.

Tools specific to Psa 78:66

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:66

He [fn]drove His adversaries backward;
He put on them an everlasting reproach.

Tools specific to Psa 78:67

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:67

He also rejected the tent of Joseph,
And did not choose the tribe of Ephraim,

Tools specific to Psa 78:68

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:68

But chose the tribe of Judah,
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 has founded forever.

Tools specific to Psa 78:70

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:70

He also chose David His servant
And took him from the sheepfolds;

Tools specific to Psa 78:71

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:71

From [fn]the care of the [fn]ewes with suckling lambs He brought him
To shepherd Jacob His people,
And Israel His inheritance.

Tools specific to Psa 78:72

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 78:72

So he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart,
And guided them with his skillful hands.
