Chapter 80

1

 Unto the end, for the winepresses, a psalm for Asaph himself.

2

 Rejoice to God our helper: sing aloud to the God of Jacob.

3

 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel: the pleasant psaltery with the harp.

4

 Blow up the trumpet on the new moon, on the noted day of your solemnity.

5

 For it is a commandment in Israel, and a judgment to the God of Jacob.

6

 He ordained it for a testimony in Joseph, when he came out of the land of Egypt: he heard a tongue which he knew not.

7

 He removed his back from the burdens: his hands had served in baskets.

8

 Thou calledst upon me in affliction, and I delivered thee: I heard thee in the secret place of tempest: I proved thee at the waters of contradiction.

9

 Hear, O my people, and I will testify to thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken to me,

10

 there shall be no new god in thee: neither shalt thou adore a strange god.

11

 For I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

12

 But my people heard not my voice: and Israel hearkened not to me.

13

 So I let them go according to the desires of their heart: they shall walk in their own inventions.

14

 If my people had heard me: if Israel had walked in my ways:

15

 I should soon have humbled their enemies, and laid my hand on them that troubled them.

16

 The enemies of the Lord have lied to him: and their time shall be for ever.

17

 And he fed them with the fat of wheat, and filled them with honey out of the rock.
