21How many times did they tempt God! This psalm draws a lesson from the history of Israel: God’s blessings and the ingratitude of his people.
21 Give heed, O my people, to my teaching
2 I will speak in parables, I will talk of old mysteries 3 which we have heard and known, which our ancestors have told us.
4 We will not keep them hid den from our children
5 He issued decrees for Jacob and set up a law in Is rael, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children,
6 so the next generation would learn and teach their own children.
7 They would then put their trust in God, and not forget his deeds and his commands.
8 And not be like their ancestors, stubborn and rebellious people, a peo ple of inconstant heart whose spirit was fickle.
9 Well-armed with bow, the Ephrai mites took flight when the time came to do battle.
10 It is because they did not keep God’s covenant and refused to live by his law.
11 They forgot the marvels he had done, 12 what their ancestors had seen in the land of Egypt, in the fields of Zoan.
13 He divided the sea and led them across
14 By day he led them with a cloud, and by night with a fiery light.
15 In the desert he split rocks to give them abundant drink.
16 He made streams come out of a rock and caused water to flow like a river.
17 Yet they sinned even more against him and rebelled against the Most High in the desert. 18 They tested God, demanding the food they craved.
19 They blasphemed against God, saying: “Can God spread a table in the desert?
20 He made water flow out of the rock
21 When the Lord heard this he was enraged
23 Yet he commanded the skies above and opened the doors of hea ven
25 They ate and had more than their fill of the bread of angels.
26 Then from heaven he stirred the east wind, and by his power let loose the south wind, 27 to rain down meat on them like dust.
27 Birds as thick as the sand on the seashore 28 fell inside their camp, lying all around their tents.
29 They ate till they were satisfied, for he had given them what they craved.
30 But even before they were finished, while the food was still in their mouths,
31 God’s anger rose against them
32 In spite of all this, they kept on sinning and did not believe,
33 so he swept away their days suddenly as a storm, and their years in terror. 34 When he slew them, they repented and sought him earnestly.
35 They remembered that God was their rock, the Most High, their re deemer.
36 But they flattered him with their mouths, they lied to him with their tongues, 37 while their hearts were unfaithful
38 Even then, in his compassion, he forgave their offenses and did not destroy them.
38 Many a time he restrained his anger and did not fully stir up his wrath.
39 He remembered that they were but flesh, a breeze that passes and never returns.
40 How often did they rebel against him in the wilderness, how often did they grieve him in the desert!
41 Again and again they tested him, and provoked the Holy One of Israel.
42 They did not remember his power in re deeming them from the oppressor
45 He sent swarms of flies that devoured them, frogs that devastated them.
46 He gave their crops to the caterpillar and their produce to the locust.
47 He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamores with frost.
48 He struck their herds with plague and their flocks with thunderbolts.
49 He unleashed his fury against them, his wrath, indignation and strife – a band of destroying angels.
50 Giving vent to his anger, he did not spare them from death, but gave them over to the plague.
51 He struck down Egypt’s firstborn, man hood’s firstfruits in the tents of Ham.
52 Then he led forth his people like a flock, and guided them like sheep through the desert.
53 He led them safely, they did not fear, but the sea engulfed their enemies.
54 He brought them to his holy land, to the mountain his right hand had won.
55 He drove out peoples before them and gave them the land as their inheritance
56 But they challenged and rebelled against God the Most High, and disobeyed his decrees.
57 They were unfaithful like their ancestors, deceitful and crooked as a twisted bow.
58 They angered him with their high places
59 Filled with wrath, God rejected Israel.
60 He abandoned his dwelling at Shiloh, the tent where he dwelt among humans.
61 He lead his glory into captivity, his ark into the hand of the enemy.
62 He gave his people over to the sword, so furious was he at his inheritance.
63 Fire devoured their young men
64 As their priests fell by the sword, no lament was heard from their widows.
65 Then the Lord awoke, shouting, as from sleep induced by wine
67 He rejected the house of Jo seph, and did not choose the tribe of Ephraim, 68 but the tribe of Judah and Zion, his beloved mountain.
69 He built his sanctuary like heav en, like the earth he founded forever.
70 He chose David his servant and took him from the sheepfolds
72 And with upright heart David pastured them
