Salmos 81

1 [To the chief Musician. Upon the Gittith. {A Psalm} of Asaph.] Sing ye joyously unto God our strength, shout aloud unto the God of Jacob;

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

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

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

5 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.

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

7 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.

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

9 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.
