Psalms 78:3-4

78:3 What we have heard and learned

that which our ancestors have told us –

78:4 we will not hide from their descendants.

We will tell the next generation

about the Lord’s praiseworthy acts,

about his strength and the amazing things he has done.

tn Or “known.”

tn Heb “fathers” (also in vv. 5, 8, 12, 57).

tn The pronominal suffix refers back to the “fathers” (“our ancestors,” v. 3).

tn Heb “to a following generation telling the praises of the Lord.” “Praises” stand by metonymy for the mighty acts that prompt worship. Cf. Ps 9:14.
