Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!
Harden not your hearts, as your forebears did in the wilderness, at Meribah, and on that day at Massah, when they tempted me.
They put me to the test, though they had seen my works.
Forty years long I detested that generation and said, “This people are wayward in their hearts; they do not know my ways.”
So I swore in my wrath, “They shall not enter into my rest.”
