Psalm 81

1 (80-1) <Unto the end, for the winepresses, a psalm for Asaph himself.> (80-2) Rejoice to God our helper: sing aloud to the God of Jacob.
2 (80-3) Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel: the pleasant psaltery with the harp.
3 (80-4) Blow up the trumpet on the new moon, on the noted day of your solemnity.
4 (80-5) For it is a commandment in Israel, and a judgment to the God of Jacob.
5 (80-6) He ordained it for a testimony in Joseph, when he came out of the land of Egypt: he heard a tongue which he knew not.
6 (80-7) He removed his back from the burdens: his hands had served in baskets.
7 (80-8) Thou calledst upon me in affliction, and I delivered thee: I heard thee in the secret place of tempest: I proved thee at the waters of contradiction.
8 (80-9) Hear, O my people, and I will testify to thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken to me,
9 (80-10) there shall be no new god in thee: neither shalt thou adore a strange god.
10 (80-11) For I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
11 (80-12) But my people heard not my voice: and Israel hearkened not to me.
12 (80-13) So I let them go according to the desires of their heart: they shall walk in their own inventions.
13 (80-14) If my people had heard me: if Israel had walked in my ways:
14 (80-15) I should soon have humbled their enemies, and laid my hand on them that troubled them.
15 (80-16) The enemies of the Lord have lied to him: and their time shall be for ever.
16 (80-17) And he fed them with the fat of wheat, and filled them with honey out of the rock.
