Psalms 81

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 atrumpet 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 alanguage that I understood not.
 6 I removed his shoulder from the aburden: his hands were delivered from the pots.
 7 Thou calledst in atrouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret bplace of thunder: I cproved thee at the waters of dMeribah. 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 agave them up unto their own hearts' blust: and they walked in their own counsels.
 13 Oh that my people had ahearkened 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 asubmitted 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.
