Psalms 106:13-22

Context

106:13 They quickly forgot what he had done; 1 

they did not wait for his instructions. 2 

106:14 In the wilderness they had an insatiable craving 3  for meat; 4 

they challenged God 5  in the desert.

106:15 He granted their request,

then struck them with a disease. 6 

106:16 In the camp they resented 7  Moses,

and Aaron, the Lord’s holy priest. 8 

106:17 The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan;

it engulfed 9  the group led by Abiram. 10 

106:18 Fire burned their group;

the flames scorched the wicked. 11 

106:19 They made an image of a calf at Horeb,

and worshiped a metal idol.

106:20 They traded their majestic God 12 

for the image of an ox that eats grass.

106:21 They rejected 13  the God who delivered them,

the one who performed great deeds in Egypt,

106:22 amazing feats in the land of Ham,

mighty 14  acts by the Red Sea.
