Psalm 95:7-11New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

For he is our God,
    we are the people he shepherds,
    the sheep in his hands.

III

Oh, that today you would hear his voice:
    Do not harden your hearts as at Meribah,
    as on the day of Massah in the desert.[a]
There your ancestors tested me;
    they tried me though they had seen my works.
10 Forty years I loathed that generation;
    I said: “This people’s heart goes astray;
    they do not know my ways.”
11 Therefore I swore in my anger:
    “They shall never enter my rest.”[b]
