We will not hide these truths
from our children;
we will tell the next generation
about the glorious deeds of the LORD,
about His power and
His mighty wonders.
…He commanded our ancestors
to teach them to their children,
so the next generation
might know them—
even the children not yet born—
and they in turn
will teach their own children.
So each generation should
set its hope anew on God,
not forgetting His glorious miracles
and obeying His commands.
Psalm 78:4-7 NLT
