Psalm 78:21-31

View Full Chapter

21When the LORD heard them, he was furious; his fire broke out against Jacob, and his wrath rose against Israel,

22for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance.

23Yet he gave a command to the skies above and opened the doors of the heavens;

24he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven.

25Human beings ate the bread of angels; he sent them all the food they could eat.

26He let loose the east wind from the heavens and by his power made the south wind blow.

27He rained meat down on them like dust, birds like sand on the seashore.

28He made them come down inside their camp, all around their tents.

29They ate till they were gorged— he had given them what they craved.

30But before they turned from what they craved, even while the food was still in their mouths,

31God’s anger rose against them; he put to death the sturdiest among them, cutting down the young men of Israel.
