Psalm 81:8–16

Hear me, my people,d and I will warn you—

if you would only listen to me, Israel!

You shall have no foreign gode among you;

you shall not worship any god other than me.

10 I am the Lord your God,

who brought you up out of Egypt.f

Openg wide your mouth and I will fillh it.

11 “But my people would not listen to me;

Israel would not submit to me.i

12 So I gave them overj to their stubborn hearts

to follow their own devices.

13 “If my people would only listen to me,k

if Israel would only follow my ways,

14 how quickly I would subduel their enemies

and turn my hand againstm their foes!

15 Those who hate the Lord would cringen before him,

and their punishment would last forever.

16 But you would be fed with the finest of wheat;o

with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
