Book of Psalms
Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful
noise unto the God of Jacob.
81:2 Take a Psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the
pleasant harp with the psaltery.
81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the
time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
81:4 For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of
the God of Jacob.
81:5 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.
81:6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: his
hands were delivered from the pots.
81:7 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.
81:8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto
thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
81:9 There shall no strange god be in thee; neither
shalt thou worship any strange god.
81:10 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out
of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I
will fill it.
81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice;
and Israel would none of me.
81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust:
and they walked in their own counsels.
81:13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and
Israel had walked in my ways!
81:14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and
turned my hand against their adversaries.
81:15 The haters of the LORD should have submitted
themselves unto him: but their time should have
endured for ever.
81:16 He should have fed them also with the finest
of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should
I have satisfied thee.
