Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob.
The pleasant harp with the lute.
At the full moon, on our solemn feast day.
4 For bthis is a statute for Israel,
A law of the God of Jacob.
When He went throughout the land of Egypt,
cWhere I heard a language I did not understand.
His hands were freed from the baskets.
7 dYou called in trouble, and I delivered you;
eI answered you in the secret place of thunder;
8 “Hear, gO My people, and I will admonish you!
O Israel, if you will listen to Me!
9 There shall be no hforeign god among you;
Nor shall you worship any foreign god.
10 iI am the Lord your God,
Who brought you out of the land of Egypt;
jOpen your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
And Israel would have knone of Me.
To walk in their own counsels.
13 “Oh, mthat My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My ways!
And turn My hand against their adversaries.
15 nThe haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him,
But their 4fate would endure forever.
And with honey pfrom the rock I would have satisfied you.”
