God’s Appeal to Stubborn Israel

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of Asaph.

81 Sing aloud to God our strength;
shout for joy to the God of Jacob!

10 I am the Lord your God,
    who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
    Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11 “But my people did not listen to my voice;
    Israel would have none of me.
12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,
    to follow their own counsels.
13 O that my people would listen to me,
    that Israel would walk in my ways!
14 I would soon subdue their enemies,
    and turn my hand against their foes.
15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe toward him,
    and their fate would last for ever.
16 I would feed you[a] with the finest of the wheat,
    and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
