Psalm 78:1-7

Listen to my teaching, people;
Hear what I say.
I will tell stories
And dark tales from the past,
Of things we’ve heard
From the mouths of our ancestors.

We won’t keep them from our children;
We will tell the next generation
What God has done
And how strong God is,
That they, too, may be filled with wonder.

God laid down the law for Jacob,
Gave directions to Israel,
And ordered our ancestors:
Teach these things to your children
So that the coming generation,
Children yet to be born,
Will know,
And tell their children
To hope in God,
And remember what God did,
And follow God’s ways.
