Psalms 78:6-8

Context

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

might know about them.

They will not forget the works of God,

and they will obey 2  his commands.

78:8 Then they will not be like their ancestors,

who were a stubborn and rebellious generation,

a generation that was not committed

and faithful to God. 3
