Psalms 81

1 {To the chief Musician. Upon the Gittith. [A Psalm] of Asaph.} Sing ye joyously unto God our strength, shout aloud unto the God of Jacob;
2. Raise a song, and sound the tambour, the pleasant harp with the lute.
3. Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the set time, on our feast day:
4. For this is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob;
5. He ordained it in Joseph [for] a testimony, when he went forth over the land of Egypt, [where] I heard a language that I knew not.
6. I removed his shoulder from the burden; his hands were freed from the basket.
7. Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder; I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
8. Hear, my people, and I will testify unto thee; O Israel, if thou wouldest hearken unto me!
9. There shall no strange łgod be in thee, neither shalt thou worship any foreign łgod.
10 I am Jehovah thy God, that brought thee up out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
11. But my people hearkened not to my voice, and Israel would none of me.
12. So I gave them up unto their own hearts' stubbornness: they walked after their own counsels.
13. Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, that Israel had walked in my ways!
14. I would soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
15. The haters of Jehovah would have come cringing unto him; but their time would have been for ever.
16. And he would have fed them with the finest of wheat; yea, with honey out of the rock would I have satisfied thee.
