(每日读经8/4) 诗篇 - Psalm 78.21-39
Therefore Jehovah heard and was angry. And a fire was kindled against Jacob, And also anger went up against Israel;
Because they did not believe in God, And they did not trust in His salvation.
Yet He commanded the skies above And opened the doors of heaven;
And He rained down upon them manna to eat And gave them the food of heaven.
Man ate the bread of the mighty; He sent them full provision.
He made the east wind blow in the heavens And guided the south wind by His strength.
And He rained upon them meat like dust, And winged birds like the sand of the seas.
And He made it fall in the midst of their camp, Around their habitations.
So they ate and were well filled; Indeed what they desired He brought to them.
They were not estranged from what they desired; Their food was still in their mouths.
When the anger of God went up against them And slew some of their fattest ones And struck down the choice men of Israel.
In spite of all this they still sinned And did not believe in His wondrous deeds.
Therefore He consumed their days with vanity, And their years with terror.
When He slew them, they inquired after Him, And they returned and diligently sought God.
And they remembered that God was their rock, And the Most High God, their Redeemer.
But they flattered Him with their mouth And lied to Him with their tongue.
For their heart was not steadfast toward Him, Nor were they faithful to His covenant.
But He, being merciful, forgave their iniquity And did not destroy them; Indeed He turned back His anger many times And did not stir up all His wrath.
And He remembered that they were flesh, A wind that goes away and does not return.
