Psalm 81

To the chief Musician *upon Gittith, A Psalm ||of Asaph.

aSing aloud unto God our strength:

bMake a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.

Take a psalm, and bring hither the ctimbrel,

The pleasant dharp with the dpsaltery.

Blow up the etrumpet fin the new moon,

In gthe time appointed, on our solemn feast day.

For this was a statute for Israel,

And a law of the God of Jacob.

This he ordained in hJoseph for ia testimony,

When khe went out ||through the land of Egypt:

lWhere I heard a language that I munderstood not.

I nremoved his shoulder from the oburden:

His hands were delivered from the ppots.

qThou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee;

I ranswered thee in the secret place of thunder:

I sproved thee at the waters of ||Meribah. Selah.

tHear, O my people, and tI will testify unto thee:

O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;

There shall no ustrange god be in thee;

Neither shalt thou worship any wstrange god.

10  xI am the Lord thy God,

Which brought thee out of the land of Egypt:

yOpen thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11  But my people would not hearken to my voice;

And Israel yywould none of me.

12  So I zgave them up ||unto their own hearts’ lust:

And they awalked in their own counsels.

13  bOh that my people had hearkened unto me,

And Israel chad walked in my ways!

14  I should soon have subdued their enemies,

And dturned my hand against their adversaries.

15  eThe haters of the Lord should have ||submitted themselves unto him:

But their time should have endured for ever.

16  He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat:

And with fhoney out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
