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.
