Psalms 81

MLV(i) 1 Sing aloud to God our strength. Shout to the God of Jacob. 2 Raise a song and bring here the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast-day. 4 Because it is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
5 He appointed it in Joseph for a testimony when he went out over the land of Egypt, where I heard a language that I did not know. 6 I removed his shoulder from the burden. His hands were freed from the basket.
7 You called in trouble and I delivered you. I answered you in the secret place of thunder. I proved you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
8 Hear, O my people and I will testify to you, O Israel, if you would listen to me! 9 There will be no strange god in you, nor will you worship any foreign god.
10 I am Jehovah your God who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.
11 But my people listened not to my voice and Israel would have none of me. 12 So I let them go after the stubbornness of their heart, that they might walk in their own counsels.
13 O that my people would listen to me, that Israel would walk in my ways! 14 I would soon subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their adversaries. 15 (The haters of Jehovah pretend obedience to him, but their time is everlasting.)
16 He would feed them also with the finest of the wheat. And I would satisfy you with honey out of the rock.
