For it is a statute for Israel, An ordinance of the God of Jacob.
He established it for a testimony in Joseph When he a10wentthroughout the land of Egypt. I heard a 11language that I did not know :
"I b12relieved his shoulder of the burden, His hands were freed from the cbasket.
"You 13called in trouble and I rescued you; I 14answered you in the hidingplace of thunder ; I proved you at the 15waters of Meribah. dSelah.
"16Hear, O My people, and I will eadmonish you; O Israel, if you 17would listen to Me!
"Let there be no18strangegod among you; Nor shall you worship any foreigngod.
"19I, the LORD, am your God, Who brought you up from the land of Egypt ; 20Open your mouthwide and I will 21fill it.
"But My people22did not listen to My voice, And Israel did not fobey Me.
"So I 23gavegthem over to the stubbornness of their heart, To walk in their own devices.
13"Oh that My people24would listen to Me, That Israel would 25walk in My ways !
"I would quickly26subdue their enemies And 27turn My handagainst their adversaries.
"28Those who hate the LORD would 29pretendobedience to Him, And their time of punishment would be forever.
"hBut I would feed you with the i30finest of the wheat, And with 31honey from the rock I would satisfy you."
