76:1In Judah is God known, in Israel His name is great.
76:2And His tabernacle is in Salem, And His habitation in Zion.
76:3There he hath shivered arrows of a bow, Shield, and sword, and battle. Selah.
76:4Bright art Thou, honourable above hills of prey.
76:5Spoiled themselves have the mighty of heart, They have slept their sleep, And none of the men of might found their hands.
76:6From Thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, Both rider and horse have been fast asleep.
76:7Thou, fearful art Thou, And who doth stand before Thee, Since Thou hast been angry!
76:8From heaven Thou hast sounded judgment, Earth hath feared, and hath been still,
76:9In the rising of God to judgment, To save all the humble of earth. Selah.
76:10For the fierceness of man praiseth Thee, The remnant of fierceness Thou girdest on.
76:11Vow and complete to Jehovah your God, All ye surrounding him. They bring presents to the Fearful One.
76:12He doth gather the spirit of leaders, Fearful to the kings of earth!
77:1My voice is to God, and I cry, my voice is to God, And He hath given ear unto me.
77:2In a day of my distress the Lord I sought, My hand by night hath been spread out, And it doth not cease, My soul hath refused to be comforted.
77:3I remember God, and make a noise, I meditate, and feeble is my spirit. Selah.
77:4Thou hast taken hold of the watches of mine eyes, I have been moved, and I speak not.
77:5I have reckoned the days of old, The years of the ages.
77:6I remember my music in the night, With my heart I meditate, and my spirit doth search diligently:
77:7To the ages doth the Lord cast off? Doth He add to be pleased no more?
77:8Hath His kindness ceased for ever? The saying failed to all generations?
77:9Hath God forgotten His favours? Hath He shut up in anger His mercies? Selah.
77:10And I say: `My weakness is, The changes of the right hand of the Most High.'
77:11I mention the doings of Jah, For I remember of old Thy wonders,
77:12And I have meditated on all Thy working, And I talk concerning Thy doings.
77:13O God, in holiness is Thy way, Who is a great god like God?
77:14Thou art the God doing wonders. Thou hast made known among the peoples Thy strength,
77:15Thou hast redeemed with strength Thy people, The sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
77:16The waters have seen Thee, O God, The waters have seen Thee, They are afraid -- also depths are troubled.
77:17Poured out waters have thick clouds, The skies have given forth a noise, Also -- Thine arrows go up and down.
77:18The voice of Thy thunder is in the spheres, Lightnings have lightened the world, The earth hath trembled, yea, it shaketh.
77:19In the sea is Thy way, And Thy paths are in many waters, And Thy tracks have not been known.
77:20Thou hast led as a flock Thy people, By the hand of Moses and Aaron!
78:1Give ear, O my people, to my law, Incline your ear to sayings of my mouth.
78:2I open with a simile my mouth, I bring forth hidden things of old,
78:3That we have heard and do know, And our fathers have recounted to us.
78:4We do not hide from their sons, To a later generation recounting praises of Jehovah, And His strength, and His wonders that He hath done.
78:5And He raiseth up a testimony in Jacob, And a law hath placed in Israel, That He commanded our fathers, To make them known to their sons.
78:6So that a later generation doth know, Sons who are born, do rise and recount to their sons,
78:7And place in God their confidence, And forget not the doings of God, But keep His commands.
78:8And they are not like their fathers, A generation apostate and rebellious, A generation! it hath not prepared its heart, Nor stedfast with God is its spirit.
78:9Sons of Ephraim -- armed bearers of bow, Have turned in a day of conflict.
78:10They have not kept the covenant of God, And in His law they have refused to walk,
78:11And they forget His doings, And His wonders that He shewed them.
78:12Before their fathers He hath done wonders, In the land of Egypt -- the field of Zoan.
78:13He cleft a sea, and causeth them to pass over, Yea, He causeth waters to stand as a heap.
78:14And leadeth them with a cloud by day, And all the night with a light of fire.
78:15He cleaveth rocks in a wilderness, And giveth drink -- as the great deep.
78:16And bringeth out streams from a rock, And causeth waters to come down as rivers.
78:17And they add still to sin against Him, To provoke the Most High in the dry place.
78:18And they try God in their heart, To ask food for their lust.
78:19And they speak against God -- they said: `Is God able to array a table in a wilderness?'
78:20Lo, He hath smitten a rock, And waters flow, yea, streams overflow. `Also -- bread is He able to give? Doth He prepare flesh for His people?'
78:21Therefore hath Jehovah heard, And He sheweth Himself wroth, And fire hath been kindled against Jacob, And anger also hath gone up against Israel,
78:22For they have not believed in God, Nor have they trusted in His salvation.
78:23And He commandeth clouds from above, Yea, doors of the heavens He hath opened.
78:24And He raineth on them manna to eat, Yea, corn of heaven He hath given to them.
78:25Food of the mighty hath each eaten, Venison He sent to them to satiety.
78:26He causeth an east wind to journey in the heavens, And leadeth by His strength a south wind,
78:27And He raineth on them flesh as dust, And as sand of the seas -- winged fowl,
78:28And causeth it to fall in the midst of His camp, Round about His tabernacles.
78:29And they eat, and are greatly satisfied, And their desire He bringeth to them.
78:30They have not been estranged from their desire, Yet is their food in their mouth,
78:31And the anger of God hath gone up against them, And He slayeth among their fat ones, And youths of Israel He caused to bend.
78:32With all this they have sinned again, And have not believed in His wonders.
78:33And He consumeth in vanity their days, And their years in trouble.
78:34If He slew them, then they sought Him, And turned back, and sought God earnestly,
78:35And they remember that God is their rock, And God Most High their redeemer.
78:36And -- they deceive Him with their mouth, And with their tongue do lie to Him,
78:37And their heart hath not been right with Him, And they have not been stedfast in His covenant.
78:38And He -- the Merciful One, Pardoneth iniquity, and destroyeth not, And hath often turned back His anger, And waketh not up all His fury.
78:39And He remembereth that they are flesh, A wind going on -- and it returneth not.
78:40How often do they provoke Him in the wilderness, Grieve Him in the desolate place?
78:41Yea, they turn back, and try God, And the Holy One of Israel have limited.
78:42They have not remembered His hand The day He ransomed them from the adversary.
78:43When He set His signs in Egypt, And His wonders in the field of Zoan,
78:44And He turneth to blood their streams, And their floods they drink not.
78:45He sendeth among them the beetle, and it consumeth them, And the frog, and it destroyeth them,
78:46And giveth to the caterpillar their increase, And their labour to the locust.
78:47He destroyeth with hail their vine, And their sycamores with frost,
78:48And delivereth up to the hail their beasts, And their cattle to the burning flames.
78:49He sendeth on them the fury of His anger, Wrath, and indignation, and distress -- A discharge of evil messengers.
78:50He pondereth a path for His anger, He kept not back their soul from death, Yea, their life to the pestilence He delivered up.
78:51And He smiteth every first-born in Egypt, The first-fruit of the strong in tents of Ham.
78:52And causeth His people to journey as a flock, And guideth them as a drove in a wilderness,
78:53And He leadeth them confidently, And they have not been afraid, And their enemies hath the sea covered.
78:54And He bringeth them in unto the border of His sanctuary, This mountain His right hand had got,
78:55And casteth out nations from before them, And causeth them to fall in the line of inheritance, And causeth the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents,
78:56And they tempt and provoke God Most High, And His testimonies have not kept.
78:57And they turn back, And deal treacherously like their fathers, They have been turned like a deceitful bow,
78:58And make Him angry with their high places, And with their graven images make Him zealous,
78:59God hath heard, and sheweth Himself wroth. And kicketh exceedingly against Israel.
78:60And He leaveth the tabernacle of Shiloh, The tent He had placed among men,
78:61And He giveth His strength to captivity, And His beauty into the hand of an adversary,
78:62And delivereth up to the sword His people, And with His inheritance shewed Himself angry.
78:63His young men hath fire consumed, And His virgins have not been praised.
78:64His priests by the sword have fallen, And their widows weep not.
78:65And the Lord waketh as a sleeper, As a mighty one crying aloud from wine.
78:66And He smiteth His adversaries backward, A reproach age-during He hath put on them,
78:67And He kicketh against the tent of Joseph, And on the tribe of Ephraim hath not fixed.
78:68And He chooseth the tribe of Judah, With mount Zion that He loved,
78:69And buildeth His sanctuary as a high place, Like the earth, He founded it to the age.
78:70And He fixeth on David His servant, And taketh him from the folds of a flock,
78:71From behind suckling ones He hath brought him in, To rule over Jacob His people, And over Israel His inheritance.
78:72And he ruleth them according to the integrity of his heart, And by the skilfulness of his hands leadeth them!
