Chapter 81

PSA.81:1 To the Chief Musician. On an instrument of Gath. A Psalm of Asaph. Sing aloud to God our strength; Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob.
PSA.81:2 Raise a song and strike the timbrel, The pleasant harp with the lute.
PSA.81:3 Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon, At the full moon, on our solemn feast day.
PSA.81:4 For this is a statute for Israel, A law of the God of Jacob.
PSA.81:5 This He established in Joseph as a testimony, When He went throughout the land of Egypt, Where I heard a language I did not understand.
PSA.81:6 “I removed his shoulder from the burden; His hands were freed from the baskets.
PSA.81:7 You called in trouble, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah
PSA.81:8 “Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you! O Israel, if you will listen to Me!
PSA.81:9 There shall be no foreign god among you; Nor shall you worship any foreign god.
PSA.81:10 I am the LORD your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
PSA.81:11 “But My people would not heed My voice, And Israel would have none of Me.
PSA.81:12 So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart, To walk in their own counsels.
PSA.81:13 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways!
PSA.81:14 I would soon subdue their enemies, And turn My hand against their adversaries.
PSA.81:15 The haters of the LORD would pretend submission to Him, But their fate would endure forever.
PSA.81:16 He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat; And with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you.”
