Deuteronomy 32:1-5

The Song

1-5Listen, Heavens, I have something to tell you. Attention, Earth, I've got a mouth full of words. My teaching, let it fall like a gentle rain,

my words arrive like morning dew,

Like a sprinkling rain on new grass,

like spring showers on the garden.

For it's God's Name I'm preaching—

respond to the greatness of our God!

The Rock: His works are perfect,

and the way he works is fair and just;

A God you can depend upon, no exceptions,

a straight-arrow God.

His messed-up, mixed-up children, his non-children,

throw mud at him but none of it sticks.

6-7Don't you realize it is God you are treating like this?

This is crazy; don't you have any sense of reverence?

Isn't this your father who created you,

who made you and gave you a place on Earth?

Read up on what happened before you were born;

dig into the past, understand your roots.

Ask your parents what it was like before you were born;

ask the old-ones, they'll tell you a thing or two.
