Psalms 78:17-23


78:17 Yet they continued to sin against him,

and rebelled against the sovereign One 1  in the desert.

78:18 They willfully challenged God 2 

by asking for food to satisfy their appetite.

78:19 They insulted God, saying, 3 

“Is God really able to give us food 4  in the wilderness?

78:20 Yes, 5  he struck a rock and water flowed out,

streams gushed forth.

But can he also give us food?

Will he provide meat for his people?”

78:21 When 6  the Lord heard this, he was furious.

A fire broke out against Jacob,

and his anger flared up 7  against Israel,

78:22 because they did not have faith in God,

and did not trust his ability to deliver them. 8 

78:23 He gave a command to the clouds above,

and opened the doors in the sky.
