New International Version
9 The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows,(A)
turned back on the day of battle;(B)
10 they did not keep God’s covenant(C)
and refused to live by his law.(D)
11 They forgot what he had done,(E)
the wonders he had shown them.
12 He did miracles(F) in the sight of their ancestors
in the land of Egypt,(G) in the region of Zoan.(H)
13 He divided the sea(I) and led them through;
he made the water stand up like a wall.(J)
14 He guided them with the cloud by day
and with light from the fire all night.(K)
15 He split the rocks(L) in the wilderness
and gave them water as abundant as the seas;
16 he brought streams out of a rocky crag
and made water flow down like rivers.
17 But they continued to sin(M) against him,
rebelling in the wilderness against the Most High.
18 They willfully put God to the test(N)
by demanding the food they craved.(O)
19 They spoke against God;(P)
they said, “Can God really
spread a table in the wilderness?
20 True, he struck the rock,
and water gushed out,(Q)
streams flowed abundantly,
but can he also give us bread?
Can he supply meat(R) for his people?”
