Psalms 81

An exhortation to a solemn praising of God.

Psalms 81:1 {To the chiefe Musician vpon Gittith. A [Psalme] of Asaph.} Sing alowd vnto God our strength: make a ioyfull noise vnto the God of Iacob. Psalms 81:2 Take a Psalme, and bring hither the timbrell: the pleasant harpe with the psalterie. Psalms 81:3 Blow vp the trumpet in the new Moone: in the time appointed on our solemne feast day.

God challengeth that duty by reason of his benefits.

Psalms 81:4 For this was a Statute for Israel: [and] a Law of the God of Iacob. Psalms 81:5 This he ordained in Ioseph [for] a testimonie, when he went out through the land of Egypt: [where] I heard a language, [that] I vnderstood not. Psalms 81:6 I remoued his shoulder from the burden: his handes were deliuered from the pots. Psalms 81:7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I deliuered thee, I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proued thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.

God, exhorting to obedience, complaineth of their disobedience, which proveth their own hurt.

Psalms 81:8 Heare, O my people, and I will testifie vnto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken vnto me: Psalms 81:9 There shall no strange God be in thee: neither shalt thou worship any strange God. Psalms 81:10 I [am] the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. Psalms 81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice: and Israel would none of me. Psalms 81:12 So I gaue them vp vnto their owne hearts lust: and they walked in in their owne counsels. Psalms 81:13 O that my people had hearkned vnto me: [and] Israel had walked in my wayes! Psalms 81:14 I should soone haue subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their aduersaries. Psalms 81:15 The haters of the LORD should haue submitted themselues vnto him: but their time should haue endured for euer. Psalms 81:16 Hee should haue fedde them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honie out of the rocke, should I haue satisfied thee.
