Chapter 81

1

 

 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. 

 

 


2

 

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

 

 


3

 

 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day. 

 

 


4

 

 For this [was] a statute for Israel, [and] a law of the God of Jacob. 

 

 


5

 

 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. 

 

 


6

 

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

 

 


7

 

 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. 

 

 


8

 

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

 

 


9

 

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

 

 


10

 

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

 

 


11

 

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

 

 


12

 

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

 

 


13

 

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

 

 


14

 

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

 

 


15

 

 The 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 honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
