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."
