Because they did not faithfully believe

Because they did not faithfully
believe, and hope that he
Could always help and succor them
in their necessity:

Wherefore he did command the clouds,
forthwith they brake in sunder,
And rained down manna for to eat,
a food of mighty wonder.

When earthly men with angels food
did plentifully feast;
He made the east-wind blow away,
and brought in the south-west:

He rained down flesh as thick as dust,
and fowls as thick as sand,
Which he did cast amidst the place
where all their tents did stand.

Then did they eat exceedingly,
and all men had their fills;
Yet more and more they did desire
to serve their lusts and wills:

But as the meat was in their mouths
His wrath upon them fell,
And slew the strength of all their youth,
and choice of Israel.

Yet fell they to their wonted sin,
and still they did him grieve;
For all the wonders that he wrought,
they would not him believe.

Their days therefore he shortened, and
did make their honor vain,
Their years did waste and pass away
with terror and with pain:

But ever when he plagu-ed them,
they sought him speedily;
Rememb'ring that he was their strength,
their help, and God most high.

Though with their mouths they nothing did
but flatter with the Lord,
And with their tongues, and in their hearts
dissembled ev'ry word.
