Psalm 78 is a parallel charge to that of Psalm 44.
Stanzas 2 and 3 are referring to failures similar to those referred to in Psalm 95:8-11; and a difficult parallel event is found in Joshua 7 and 8.

Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References
Throughout all of history, God’s people proved to be unfaithful to him and yet God, in his mercy, was full of grace. These truths are expressed in Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 22: “When Israel spurned God’s love…God scattered them among the nations, yet kept a faithful remnant and promised them the Messiah…God promised to forgive their sins and give them a new heart and a new spirit, moving them to walk in his ways.”
