Leader: My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old— things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us.
People: We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.
Leader: He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children,
People: … so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.
All: Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.
