1 Hear my teaching, O my people; ♦︎
incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable; ♦︎
I will pour forth mysteries from of old,
3 Such as we have heard and known, ♦︎
which our forebears have told us.
4 We will not hide from their children,
but will recount to generations to come, ♦︎
the praises of the Lord and his power
and the wonderful works he has done.
5 He laid a solemn charge on Jacob
and made it a law in Israel, ♦︎
which he commanded them to teach their children,
7 So that they might put their trust in God ♦︎
and not forget the deeds of God,
but keep his commandments,
