    Psalms 81
    King James Version

    1 Sing aloud unto God our strength:
    make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.​
    2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel,
    the pleasant harp with the psaltery.​

    3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon,
    in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.​
    4 For this was a statute for Israel,
    and a law of the God of Jacob.​
    5 This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony,
    when he went out through the land of Egypt:
    where I heard a language that I understood not.​

    6 I removed his shoulder from the burden:
    his hands were delivered from the pots.​
    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, O my people, and I will testify unto thee:
    O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;​
    9 There shall no strange god be in thee;
    neither shalt thou worship any strange god.​
    10 I am the Lord thy God,
    which brought thee out of the land of Egypt:
    open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.​

    11 But my people would not hearken to my voice;
    and Israel would none of me.​
    12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust:
    and they walked in their own counsels.​

    13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me,
    and Israel had walked in my ways!​
    14 I should soon have subdued their enemies,
    and turned my hand against their adversaries.​
    15 The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto him:
    but their time should have endured for ever.​
    16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat:
    and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
