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 (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!
