(Ps 78:5 [AKJV])
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:
(Ps 78:6 [AKJV])
That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
(Ps 78:7 [AKJV])
That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:

(Ps 78:12 [AKJV])
Marvelous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
(Ps 78:13 [AKJV])
He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
(Ps 78:14 [AKJV])

(Ps 78:15 [AKJV])
He split the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.

(Ps 78:18 [AKJV])
And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
(Ps 78:19 [AKJV])
Yes, they spoke against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
(Ps 78:20 [AKJV])
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?
(Ps 78:21 [AKJV])
Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
(Ps 78:22 [AKJV])
Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
(Ps 78:23 [AKJV])
Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
(Ps 78:24 [AKJV])
And had rained down manna on them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
(Ps 78:25 [AKJV])

(Ps 78:28 [AKJV])
And he let it fall in the middle of their camp, round about their habitations.
(Ps 78:29 [AKJV])
So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
(Ps 78:30 [AKJV])
They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,
(Ps 78:31 [AKJV])
The wrath of God came on them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
(Ps 78:32 [AKJV])
For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
(Ps 78:33 [AKJV])
Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
(Ps 78:34 [AKJV])
When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and inquired early after God.
(Ps 78:35 [AKJV])

(Ps 78:37 [AKJV])
For their heart was not right with him, neither were they steadfast in his covenant.
(Ps 78:38 [AKJV])
But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yes, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
(Ps 78:39 [AKJV])
For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passes away, and comes not again.
(Ps 78:40 [AKJV])
How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!
(Ps 78:41 [AKJV])
Yes, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
(Ps 78:42 [AKJV])
They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.
(Ps 78:43 [AKJV])
How he had worked his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan.
(Ps 78:44 [AKJV])
And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.
(Ps 78:45 [AKJV])
He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.
(Ps 78:46 [AKJV])
He gave also their increase to the caterpillar, and their labor to the locust.
(Ps 78:47 [AKJV])
He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.
(Ps 78:48 [AKJV])
He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
(Ps 78:49 [AKJV])
He cast on them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.
(Ps 78:50 [AKJV])
He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
(Ps 78:51 [AKJV])
And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham:
(Ps 78:52 [AKJV])
But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
(Ps 78:53 [AKJV])
And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
(Ps 78:54 [AKJV])
And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.
(Ps 78:55 [AKJV])
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.
(Ps 78:56 [AKJV])
Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:
(Ps 78:57 [AKJV])
But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
(Ps 78:58 [AKJV])
For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
(Ps 78:59 [AKJV])
When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:
(Ps 78:60 [AKJV])
So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men;
(Ps 78:61 [AKJV])
And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy’s hand.
(Ps 78:62 [AKJV])
He gave his people over also to the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.
(Ps 78:63 [AKJV])
The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.
(Ps 78:64 [AKJV])
Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.
(Ps 78:65 [AKJV])
Then the LORD awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouts by reason of wine.
(Ps 78:66 [AKJV])
And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.
(Ps 78:67 [AKJV])
Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
(Ps 78:68 [AKJV])
But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
(Ps 78:69 [AKJV])
And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he has established for ever.
(Ps 78:70 [AKJV])
He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:
(Ps 78:71 [AKJV])
From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
(Ps 78:72 [AKJV])
So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.
(Ps 79:1 [AKJV])
O God, the heathen are come into your inheritance; your holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.
(Ps 79:2 [AKJV])
The dead bodies of your servants have they given to be meat to the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of your saints to the beasts of the earth.
(Ps 79:3 [AKJV])
Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.
(Ps 79:4 [AKJV])
We are become a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
(Ps 79:5 [AKJV])
How long, LORD? will you be angry for ever? shall your jealousy burn like fire?
(Ps 79:6 [AKJV])
Pour out your wrath on the heathen that have not known you, and on the kingdoms that have not called on your name.
(Ps 79:7 [AKJV])

Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for your name’s sake.
(Ps 79:10 [AKJV])
Why should the heathen say, Where is their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of your servants which is shed.
(Ps 79:11 [AKJV])
Let the sighing of the prisoner come before you; according to the greatness of your power preserve you those that are appointed to die;
(Ps 79:12 [AKJV])
And render to our neighbors sevenfold into their bosom their reproach, with which they have reproached you, O Lord.
