Chapter 81


To the chief Musician upon Gittith, [A Psalm] of Asaph. Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.


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


Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the 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 Joseph [for] a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: [where] I heard a language [that] I understood not.


I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.


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.


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


There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.


I [am] the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.


But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.


So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: [and] they walked in their own counsels.


Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, [and] Israel had walked in my ways!


I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.


The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.


He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
