FAMILIES OF FAITH: Generations of responsibility
Psalm 78 is one of thirteen maskils. These are wise, contemplative hymns of various topics sung publicly for the benefit of all. This maskil is a parable of “dark sayings of old” which have been heard and known and have been passed down from previous generations.
Asaph, the human author, effectively underscores the need for everyone to “Listen. Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.”
