|Psalms 78:1-7 |
1 Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. [Jesus said, "He who is of God, hears God's words," John 8:47; "Take heed what you hear; with what measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given." Mark 4:24-25.]
2 I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter hidden things of old —
3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their children, showing to the generation to come the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, and his strength, and the wonderful works that he has done.
5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, commanding our fathers that they should make them known to their children,
6 So that the generation to come might know them, that the children who would be born would arise and declare them to their children,
7 That they might set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments;
