Rev. Steve Ahlersmeyer


Psalm 78:1-7

1 O my people, hear my teaching;
   listen to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in parables,
   I will utter hidden things, things from of old—
3 what we have heard and known,
   what our fathers have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their children;
   we will tell the next generation
   the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD,
   his power, and the wonders he has done.
5 He decreed statutes for Jacob
   and established the law in Israel,
   which he commanded our forefathers
   to teach their children,
6 so the next generation would know them,
   even the children yet to be born,
   and they in turn would tell their children.
7 Then they would put their trust in God
   and would not forget his deeds
   but would keep his commands.
