Psalm 78


Yet Yahweh gave orders to the skies above,

    and opened the doors of the skies.

Yahweh caused manna to rain down on them so that they could eat,

    and Yahweh gave them the grain of heaven.

People ate of the food of heroes;

    Yahweh sent them provisions until they were satisfied.

Yahweh made the east wind blow in the sky,

    and by Yahweh's power he led out the south wind.

Yahweh made flesh rain upon them like dust,

    winged birds like the sand of the seas.

Yahweh let them fall in the midst of their camp,

    round about their dwellings.

They ate and were satisfied,

    for Yahweh brought to them their deepest desire.
