Tehillim 81Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
81 (For the one directing. On the gittis. Of Asaph.) Sing with joy unto Elohim uzeinu (our strength); make a joyful noise unto Elohei Ya’akov.
2 (3) Begin a song, and bring hither the tambourine, the pleasant kinnor (harp) with the nevel (lyre).
3 (4) Blow the shofar at Rosh Chodesh, at the full moon, on Yom Chageinu.
4 (5) For this was a chok for Yisroel, and a mishpat of the Elohei Ya’akov.
5 (6) This He ordained in Yosef for an edut, when He went out over Eretz Mitzra- yim; where a language of one not known did I hear.
6 (7) I removed his shekhem (shoulder) from the burden; his hands were delivered from the basket.
7 (8) In tzoros thou calledst, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the seter ra’am (secret place of thunder); I tested thee at the waters of Merivah. Selah.
8 (9) Shema, O My people, and I will admonish thee; O Yisroel, if thou wilt pay heed unto Me;
9 (10) There shall no el zar (strange, foreign g-d) be among thee; neither shalt thou worship any el nechar (foreign g-d).
10 (11) I am Hashem Eloheicha Who brought thee out of Eretz Mitzrayim; open thy mouth wide, I will fill it.
11 (12) But My people would not pay heed to My voice; and Yisroel would have none of Me.
12 (13) So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ sherirut (stubbornness); and they walked in their own mo’atzot (counsels).
13 (14) Oh that My people had paid heed unto Me, and Yisroel had walked in My ways!
14 (15) I should soon have subdued their oyevim and turned My Yad (hand, power) against their adversaries.
15 (16) The haters of Hashem should have cringed before Him; their et (time, fate, punishment) endures l’olam.
16 (17) He would have fed them also with the finest of the chittah (wheat); and with devash (honey) from the Tzur would I have satisfied thee.
