21 Therefore the Lord heard and [a]was full of wrath; And a fire was kindled against Jacob And anger also mounted against Israel, 22 Because they did not believe in God And did not trust in His salvation. 23 Yet He commanded the clouds above And opened the doors of heaven; 24 He rained down manna upon them to eat And gave them [b]food from heaven. 25 Man did eat the bread of [c]angels; He sent them [d]food [e]in abundance. 26 He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens And by His [f]power He directed the south wind. 27 When He rained [g]meat upon them like the dust, Even winged fowl like the sand of the seas, 28 Then He let them fall in the midst of [h]their camp, Round about their dwellings. 29 So they ate and were well filled, And their desire He gave to them. 30 [i]Before they had satisfied their desire, While their food was in their mouths, 31 The anger of God rose against them And killed [j]some of their stoutest ones, And [k]subdued the choice men of Israel. 32 In spite of all this they still sinned And did not believe in His wonderful works. 33 So He brought their days to an end in [l]futility And their years in sudden terror.
34 When He killed them, then they sought Him, And returned and searched diligently for God; 35 And they remembered that God was their rock, And the Most High God their Redeemer. 36 But they deceived Him with their mouth And lied to Him with their tongue. 37 For their heart was not steadfast toward Him, Nor were they faithful in His covenant. 38 But He, being compassionate, [m]forgave their iniquity and did not destroy them; And often He [n]restrained His anger And did not arouse all His wrath. 39 Thus He remembered that they were but flesh, A [o]wind that passes and does not return.
