Psalm 78:5-7 MSG – He planted a witness in Jacob,
set his Word firmly in Israel,
Then commanded our parents
to teach it to their children

and all the generations to come—
Know the truth and tell the stories
so their children can trust in God,
Never forget the works of God
but keep his commands to the letter.
