Psalm 78

1Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

2I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old,

34When he killed them, they sought for him; they repented and sought God earnestly.

35They remembered that God was their rock, the Most High God their redeemer.

36But they flattered him with their mouths; they lied to him with their tongues.

37Their heart was not steadfast toward him; they were not true to his covenant.

38Yet he, being compassionate, forgave their iniquity, and did not destroy them; often he restrained his anger, and did not stir up all his wrath.
