Tell the Coming Generation – Psalm 78:1-8 | Kenny Gobert
Psalm 78:1-8 CSB
My people, hear my instruction; listen to the words from my mouth.
² I will declare wise sayings; I will speak mysteries from the past —
³ things we have heard and known and that our ancestors have passed down to us.
⁴ We will not hide them from their children, but will tell a future generation the praiseworthy acts of the Lord, his might, and the wondrous works he has performed.
⁵ He established a testimony in Jacob and set up a law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach to their children
⁶ so that a future generation —children yet to be born — might know. They were to rise and tell their children
⁷ so that they might put their confidence in God and not forget God’s works, but keep his commands.
⁸ Then they would not be like their ancestors, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not loyal and whose spirit was not faithful to God.
