Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.2Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasantharp with the psaltery.3
Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feastday.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.
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.aSelah.8Hear , O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
There shall no strangegod be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strangegod.10
I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouthwide , and I will fill it.
But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israelwould none of me.
So I gave them up unto their own hearts'lust: and they walked in their own counsels.13Oh 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 submittedb themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.16
He should have fed them also with the finestc of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
