  Psalms

Chapter 81

1  <<To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of Asaph.>> Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
2  Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3  Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
4  For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.
5  This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: where I heard a language that I understood not.
6  I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.
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, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
9  There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.
10  I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
11  But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
12  So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.
13  Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways!
14  I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
15  The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.
16  He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
