One generation shall praise Your works to another,
And shall declare Your mighty acts.
“It is the living who give thanks to You, as I do today;
A father tells his sons about Your faithfulness.
And when your children say to you, ‘What does this rite mean to you?’
And it shall be when your son asks you in time to come, saying, ‘What is this?’ then you shall say to him, ‘With a powerful hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt, from the house of slavery.
You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.
He said to the sons of Israel, “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’
For the choir director. A Maskil of the sons of Korah.
O God, we have heard with our ears,
Our fathers have told us
The work that You did in their days,
In the days of old.
And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me,
Until I declare Your strength to this generation,
Your power to all who are to come.
Which we have heard and known,
And our fathers have told us.
