Psalm 81 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
1 Sing for joy to God, our strength; shout out loud to the God of Jacob. 2 Begin the music. Play the tambourines. Play pleasant music on the harps and lyres. 3 Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon, when the moon is full, when our feast begins. 4 This is the law for Israel; it is the command of the God of Jacob. 5 He gave this rule to the people of Joseph when they went out of the land of Egypt. I heard a language I did not know, saying: 6 "I took the load off their shoulders; I let them put down their baskets. 7 When you were in trouble, you called, and I saved you. I answered you with thunder. I tested you at the waters of Meribah.Selah 8 My people, listen. I am warning you. Israel, please listen to me! 9 You must not have foreign gods; you must not worship any false god. 10 I, the Lord, am your God, who brought you out of Egypt. Open your mouth and I will feed you. 11 "But my people did not listen to me; Israel did not want me. 12 So I let them go their stubborn way and follow their own advice. 13 I wish my people would listen to me; I wish Israel would live my way. 14 Then I would quickly defeat their enemies and turn my hand against their foes. 15 Those who hate the Lord would bow before him. Their punishment would continue forever. 16 But I would give you the finest wheat and fill you with honey from the rocks." A psalm of Asaph.
