The Book of Psalms
Sing aloud unto God our strength: shout for joy unto the God of Jacob.
2 Raise a song, and strike the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the lyre.
3 Blow the trumpet in the new moon, in the full moon, on our feast day.
4 For this was a statute for Israel, and an ordinance 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 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, O my people, and I will admonish thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
9 There shall no strange god be among thee; neither shalt thou worship any foreign 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 have none of me.
12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' stubborness, to walk 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: and their punishment should have endured for ever.
16 But I would feed you with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
