Psalms 78:55-58

Context

78:55 He drove the nations out from before them;

he assigned them their tribal allotments 1 

and allowed the tribes of Israel to settle down. 2 

78:56 Yet they challenged and defied 3  the sovereign God, 4 

and did not obey 5  his commands. 6 

78:57 They were unfaithful 7  and acted as treacherously as 8  their ancestors;

they were as unreliable as a malfunctioning bow. 9

and made him jealous with their idols.
