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
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
