Chapter 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.
