Psalm 81 (WEBP)

[1] Sing aloud to God, our strength! Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob!
[2] Raise a song, and bring here the tambourine, the pleasant lyre with the harp.
[3] Blow the trumpet at the New Moon, at the full moon, on our feast day.
[4] For it is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
[5] He appointed it in Joseph for a covenant, when he went out over the land of Egypt, I heard a language that I didn’t know.
[6] “I removed his shoulder from the burden. His hands were freed from the basket.
[7] You called in trouble, and I delivered you. I answered you in the secret place of thunder. I tested you at the waters of Meribah.” Selah.
[8] “Hear, my people, and I will testify to you, Israel, if you would listen to me!
[9] There shall be no strange god in you, neither shall you worship any foreign god.
[10] I am Yahweh, 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 didn’t listen to my voice. Israel desired none of me.
[12] So I let them go after the stubbornness of their hearts, that they might walk in their own counsels.
[13] Oh 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 adversaries.
[15] The haters of Yahweh would cringe before him, and their punishment would last forever.
[16] But he would have also fed them with the finest of the wheat. I will satisfy you with honey out of the rock.”

Psalm 81 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764) upon Gittith H1665, [A Psalm] of Asaph H623.» Sing aloud H7442 (8685) unto God H430 our strength H5797: make a joyful noise H7321 (8685) unto the God H430 of Jacob H3290.
[2] Take H5375 (8798) a psalm H2172, and bring H5414 (8798) hither the timbrel H8596, the pleasant H5273 harp H3658 with the psaltery H5035.
[3] Blow up H8628 (8798) the trumpet H7782 in the new moon H2320, in the time appointed H3677, on our solemn feast H2282 day H3117.
[4] For this [was] a statute H2706 for Israel H3478, [and] a law H4941 of the God H430 of Jacob H3290.
[5] This he ordained H7760 (8804) in Joseph H3084 [for] a testimony H5715, when he went out H3318 (8800) through the land H776 of Egypt H4714: [where] I heard H8085 (8799) a language H8193 [that] I understood H3045 (8804) not.
[6] I removed H5493 (8689) his shoulder H7926 from the burden H5447: his hands H3709 were delivered H5674 (8799) from the pots H1731.
[7] Thou calledst H7121 (8804) in trouble H6869, and I delivered H2502 (8762) thee; I answered H6030 (8799) thee in the secret place H5643 of thunder H7482: I proved H974 (8799) thee at the waters H4325 of Meribah H4809. Selah H5542.
[8] Hear H8085 (8798), O my people H5971, and I will testify H5749 (8686) unto thee: O Israel H3478, if thou wilt hearken H8085 (8799) unto me;
[9] There shall no strange H2114 (8801) god H410 be in thee; neither shalt thou worship H7812 (8691) any strange H5236 god H410.
[10] I [am] the LORD H3068 thy God H430, which brought H5927 (8688) thee out of the land H776 of Egypt H4714: open thy mouth H6310 wide H7337 (8685), and I will fill H4390 (8762) it.
[11] But my people H5971 would not hearken H8085 (8804) to my voice H6963; and Israel H3478 would H14 (8804) none of me.
[12] So I gave them up H7971 (8762) unto their own hearts H3820’ lust H8307: [and] they walked H3212 (8799) in their own counsels H4156.
[13] Oh H3863 that my people H5971 had hearkened H8085 (8802) unto me, [and] Israel H3478 had walked H1980 (8762) in my ways H1870!
[14] I should soon H4592 have subdued H3665 (8686) their enemies H341 (8802), and turned H7725 (8686) my hand H3027 against their adversaries H6862.
[15] The haters H8130 (8764) of the LORD H3068 should have submitted H3584 (8762) themselves unto him: but their time H6256 should have endured for ever H5769.
[16] He should have fed H398 (8686) them also with the finest H2459 of the wheat H2406: and with honey H1706 out of the rock H6697 should I have satisfied H7646 (8686) thee.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 81 (YLT)

[1] Cry aloud to God our strength, Shout to the God of Jacob.
[2] Lift up a song, and give out a timbrel, A pleasant harp with psaltery.
[3] Blow in the month a trumpet, In the new moon, at the day of our festival,
[4] For a statute to Israel it is, An ordinance of the God of Jacob.
[5] A testimony on Joseph He hath placed it, In his going forth over the land of Egypt. A lip, I have not known-I hear.
[6] From the burden his shoulder I turned aside, His hands from the basket pass over.
[7] In distress thou hast called and I deliver thee, I answer thee in the secret place of thunder, I try thee by the waters of Meribah. Selah.
[8] Hear, O My people, and I testify to thee, O Israel, if thou dost hearken to me:
[9] There is not in thee a strange god, And thou bowest not thyself to a strange god.
[10] I am Jehovah thy God, Who bringeth thee up out of the land of Egypt. Enlarge thy mouth, and I fill it.
[11] But, My people hearkened not to My voice, And Israel hath not consented to Me.
[12] And I send them away in the enmity of their heart, They walk in their own counsels.
[13] O that My people were hearkening to Me, Israel in My ways would walk.
[14] As a little thing their enemies I cause to bow, And against their adversaries I turn back My hand,
[15] Those hating Jehovah feign obedience to Him, But their time is-to the age.
[16] He causeth him to eat of the fat of wheat, And with honey from a rock I satisfy thee!
