Bible: Psalm 78:10-25

78:10 They did not keep their covenant with God, 1 

and they refused to obey 2  his law.

78:11 They forgot what he had done, 3 

the amazing things he had shown them.

78:12 He did amazing things in the sight of their ancestors,

in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan. 4 

78:13 He divided the sea and led them across it;

he made the water stand in a heap.

78:14 He led them with a cloud by day,

and with the light of a fire all night long.

78:15 He broke open rocks in the wilderness,

and gave them enough water to fill the depths of the sea. 5 

78:16 He caused streams to flow from the rock,

and made the water flow like rivers.

78:17 Yet they continued to sin against him,

and rebelled against the sovereign One 6  in the desert.

78:18 They willfully challenged God 7 

by asking for food to satisfy their appetite.

78:19 They insulted God, saying, 8 

“Is God really able to give us food 9  in the wilderness?

78:20 Yes, 10  he struck a rock and water flowed out,

streams gushed forth.

But can he also give us food?

Will he provide meat for his people?

78:21 When 11  the Lord heard this, he was furious.

A fire broke out against Jacob,

and his anger flared up 12  against Israel,

78:22 because they did not have faith in God,

and did not trust his ability to deliver them. 13 

78:23 He gave a command to the clouds above,

and opened the doors in the sky.

78:24 He rained down manna for them to eat;

he gave them the grain of heaven. 14 

78:25 Man ate the food of the mighty ones. 15 

He sent them more than enough to eat. 16
