Psalms 78:5-6

Context

78:5 He established a rule 1  in Jacob;

he set up a law in Israel.

He commanded our ancestors

to make his deeds known to their descendants, 2 

78:6 so that the next generation, children yet to be born,

might know about them.

They will grow up and tell their descendants about them. 3 

1 tn The Hebrew noun עֵדוּת (’edut) refers here to God’s command that the older generation teach their children about God’s mighty deeds in the nation’s history (see Exod 10:2; Deut 4:9; 6:20-25).

2 tn Heb “which he commanded our fathers to make them known to their sons.” The plural suffix “them” probably refers back to the Lord’s mighty deeds (see vv. 3-4).

3 tn Heb “in order that they might know, a following generation, sons [who] will be born, they will arise and will tell to their sons.”
