Psalm 81Darby Translation (DARBY)

To the chief Musician. Upon the Gittith. [A Psalm] of Asaph.

81 Sing ye joyously unto God our strength, shout aloud unto the God of Jacob;

Raise a song, and sound the tambour, the pleasant harp with the lute.

Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the set time, on our feast day:

For this is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob;

He ordained it in Joseph [for] a testimony, when he went forth over the land of Egypt, [where] I heard a language that I knew not.

I removed his shoulder from the burden; his hands were freed from the basket.

Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder; I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.

Hear, my people, and I will testify unto thee; O Israel, if thou wouldest hearken unto me!

There shall no strange god be in thee, neither shalt thou worship any foreign god.

10 I am Jehovah thy God, that brought thee up out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11 But my people hearkened not to my voice, and Israel would none of me.

12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' stubbornness: they walked after their own counsels.

13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, that Israel had walked in my ways!

14 I would soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.

15 The haters of Jehovah would have come cringing unto him; but their time would have been for ever.

16 And he would have fed them with the finest of wheat; yea, with honey out of the rock would I have satisfied thee.
