1 H4905 Maschil H623 of Asaph. H238 Give ear, H5971 O my people, H8451 to my law: H5186 incline H241 your ears H561 to the words H6310 of my mouth.
2 H6605 I will open H6310 my mouth H4912 in a parable: H5042 I will utter H2420 dark H2420 sayings H6924 of old:
4 H3582 We will not hide H1121 them from their children, H5608 showing H1755 to the generation H314 to come H8416 the praises H3068 of the LORD, H5807 and his strength, H6381 and his wonderful H6213 works that he has done.
5 H6965 For he established H5715 a testimony H3290 in Jacob, H7760 and appointed H8451 a law H3478 in Israel, H834 which H6680 he commanded H1 our fathers, H3045 that they should make them known H1121 to their children:
6 H1755 That the generation H314 to come H3045 might know H1121 them, even the children H3205 which should be born; H6965 who should arise H5608 and declare H1121 them to their children:
7 H7760 That they might set H3689 their hope H430 in God, H7911 and not forget H4611 the works H410 of God, H5341 but keep H4687 his commandments:
8 H1 And might not be as their fathers, H5637 a stubborn H4784 and rebellious H1755 generation; H1755 a generation H3559 that set H3820 not their heart H3559 aright, H7307 and whose spirit H539 was not steadfast H410 with God.
9 H1121 The children H669 of Ephraim, H5401 being armed, H7411 and carrying H7198 bows, H2015 turned H2015 back H3117 in the day H7128 of battle.
10 H8104 They kept H1285 not the covenant H430 of God, H3985 and refused H3212 to walk H8451 in his law;
12 H6382 Marvelous H6213 things did H5048 he in the sight H1 of their fathers, H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt, H7704 in the field H6814 of Zoan.
13 H1234 He divided H3220 the sea, H5674 and caused them to pass H4325 through; and he made the waters H5324 to stand H5067 as an heap.
14 H3119 In the daytime H5148 also he led H6051 them with a cloud, H3605 and all H3915 the night H216 with a light H784 of fire.
15 H1234 He split H6697 the rocks H4057 in the wilderness, H8248 and gave them drink H7227 as out of the great H8415 depths.
16 H3318 He brought H5140 streams H5553 also out of the rock, H4325 and caused waters H3381 to run H5104 down like rivers.
17 H2398 And they sinned H5750 yet H5750 more H4784 against him by provoking H5945 the most H5945 High H6723 in the wilderness.
18 H5254 And they tempted H410 God H3824 in their heart H7592 by asking H400 meat H5315 for their lust.
19 H1696 Yes, they spoke H430 against God; H559 they said, H3201 Can H410 God H6186 furnish H7979 a table H4057 in the wilderness?
20 H2005 Behold, H5221 he smote H6697 the rock, H4325 that the waters H2100 gushed H5158 out, and the streams H7857 overflowed; H3201 can H5414 he give H3899 bread H1571 also? H3201 can H3559 he provide H7607 flesh H5971 for his people?
21 H3651 Therefore H3068 the LORD H8085 heard H1931 this, H5674 and was wroth: H784 so a fire H5400 was kindled H3290 against Jacob, H639 and anger H1571 also H5927 came H3478 up against Israel;
23 H6680 Though he had commanded H7834 the clouds H4605 from above, H6605 and opened H1817 the doors H8064 of heaven,
24 H4305 And had rained H4478 down manna H398 on them to eat, H5414 and had given H1715 them of the corn H8064 of heaven.
26 H6921 He caused an east H5265 wind to blow H8064 in the heaven: H5797 and by his power H5090 he brought H8486 in the south wind.
27 H4305 He rained H7607 flesh H6083 also on them as dust, H3671 and feathered H5775 fowls H2344 like as the sand H3220 of the sea:
28 H5307 And he let it fall H7130 in the middle H4264 of their camp, H5439 round H4908 about their habitations.
29 H398 So they did eat, H3966 and were well H7646 filled: H935 for he gave H8378 them their own desire;
30 H2114 They were not estranged H8378 from their lust. H400 But while their meat H5750 was yet H6310 in their mouths,
31 H639 The wrath H430 of God H5927 came H2026 on them, and slew H4924 the fattest H3766 of them, and smote H3766 down H970 the chosen H3478 men of Israel.
32 H3605 For all H2063 this H2398 they sinned H5750 still, H539 and believed H6381 not for his wondrous works.
33 H3117 Therefore their days H3615 did he consume H1892 in vanity, H8141 and their years H928 in trouble.
34 H518 When H2026 he slew H1875 them, then they sought H7725 him: and they returned H7836 and inquired H7836 early H410 after God.
35 H2142 And they remembered H430 that God H6697 was their rock, H5945 and the high H410 God H1350 their redeemer.
36 H6601 Nevertheless they did flatter H6310 him with their mouth, H3576 and they lied H3956 to him with their tongues.
37 H3820 For their heart H3559 was not right H3808 with him, neither H539 were they steadfast H1285 in his covenant.
38 H7349 But he, being full of compassion, H3722 forgave H5771 their iniquity, H7843 and destroyed H7235 them not: yes, many H7725 a time turned H639 he his anger H5782 away, and did not stir H3605 up all H2534 his wrath.
39 H2142 For he remembered H1320 that they were but flesh; H7307 a wind H1980 that passes H7725 away, and comes H7725 not again.
40 H4101 How H4784 oft did they provoke H4057 him in the wilderness, H6087 and grieve H3452 him in the desert!
41 H7725 Yes, they turned H7725 back H5254 and tempted H410 God, H8428 and limited H6918 the Holy H3478 One of Israel.
42 H2142 They remembered H3027 not his hand, H3117 nor the day H834 when H6299 he delivered H6862 them from the enemy.
43 H834 How H7760 he had worked H226 his signs H4714 in Egypt, H4159 and his wonders H7704 in the field H6814 of Zoan.
44 H2015 And had turned H2975 their rivers H1818 into blood; H5140 and their floods, H8354 that they could not drink.
45 H7971 He sent H6157 divers sorts of flies H398 among them, which devoured H6854 them; and frogs, H7843 which destroyed them.
46 H5414 He gave H2981 also their increase H2625 to the caterpillar, H3018 and their labor H697 to the locust.
47 H2026 He destroyed H1612 their vines H1259 with hail, H8256 and their sycomore H2602 trees with frost.
48 H5462 He gave H1165 up their cattle H1259 also to the hail, H4735 and their flocks H7565 to hot H7565 thunderbolts.
49 H7971 He cast H2740 on them the fierceness H639 of his anger, H5678 wrath, H2195 and indignation, H6869 and trouble, H4917 by sending H7451 evil H4397 angels among them.
50 H5410 He made a way H639 to his anger; H2820 he spared H5315 not their soul H4194 from death, H5462 but gave H2416 their life H5462 over H1698 to the pestilence;
51 H5221 And smote H3605 all H1060 the firstborn H4714 in Egypt; H7225 the chief H202 of their strength H168 in the tabernacles H2526 of Ham:
52 H5971 But made his own people H5265 to go H5265 forth H6629 like sheep, H5090 and guided H4057 them in the wilderness H5739 like a flock.
53 H5148 And he led H983 them on safely, H6342 so that they feared H3220 not: but the sea H3680 overwhelmed H341 their enemies.
54 H935 And he brought H1366 them to the border H6944 of his sanctuary, H2088 even to this H2022 mountain, H3225 which his right H3225 hand H7069 had purchased.
55 H1644 He cast H1471 out the heathen H6440 also before H5307 them, and divided H5159 them an inheritance H2256 by line, H7626 and made the tribes H3478 of Israel H7931 to dwell H168 in their tents.
56 H5254 Yet they tempted H4784 and provoked H5945 the most H5945 high H430 God, H8104 and kept H5713 not his testimonies:
57 H5472 But turned H5472 back, H898 and dealt unfaithfully H1 like their fathers: H2015 they were turned H2015 aside H7423 like a deceitful H7198 bow.
58 H3707 For they provoked him to anger H1116 with their high H7065 places, and moved him to jealousy H6456 with their graven H6456 images.
59 H430 When God H8085 heard H5674 this, he was wroth, H3966 and greatly H3988 abhorred H3478 Israel:
60 H5203 So that he forsook H4908 the tabernacle H7887 of Shiloh, H168 the tent H7931 which he placed H120 among men;
61 H5414 And delivered H5797 his strength H7628 into captivity, H8597 and his glory H6862 into the enemy’s H3027 hand.
62 H5462 He gave H5971 his people H5462 over H2719 also to the sword; H5674 and was wroth H5159 with his inheritance.
63 H784 The fire H398 consumed H970 their young H1330 men; and their maidens H1984 were not given to marriage.
64 H3548 Their priests H5307 fell H2719 by the sword; H490 and their widows H3808 made no H1058 lamentation.
65 H136 Then the LORD H3364 awaked H3463 as one out of sleep, H1368 and like a mighty H7442 man that shouts H3196 by reason of wine.
66 H5221 And he smote H6862 his enemies H268 in the hinder H5414 parts: he put H5769 them to a perpetual H2781 reproach.
67 H3988 Moreover he refused H168 the tabernacle H3130 of Joseph, H977 and chose H7626 not the tribe H669 of Ephraim:
68 H977 But chose H7626 the tribe H3063 of Judah, H2022 the mount H6726 Zion H834 which H157 he loved.
69 H1129 And he built H4720 his sanctuary H7311 like high H776 palaces, like the earth H3245 which he has established H5769 for ever.
71 H310 From following H5763 the ewes H5763 great with young H935 he brought H7462 him to feed H3290 Jacob H5971 his people, H3478 and Israel H5159 his inheritance.
