Psalms 81

An exhortation to a solemn praising of God.

Psalms 81:1 {To the chiefe musition vpon Gittith, of Asaph.} Sing we meryly vnto the Lorde our strength: make a chearefull noyse vnto the Lorde of Iacob. Psalms 81:2 Take the psalterie: bryng hyther the tabret, the merie harpe, with the lute. Psalms 81:3 Blowe vp the trumpet in the newe moone, euen in the time appointed: and vpon our solempne feast day.

God challengeth that duty by reason of his benefits.

Psalms 81:4 For this was made a statute for Israel: and a lawe of the God of Iacob. Psalms 81:5 This he ordayned in Ioseph for a testimonie, when he came out of the lande of Egypt: [where] I hearde a tongue [whiche] I knewe not. Psalms 81:6 I eased his shoulder from the burthen: and his handes ceassed from making pottes. Psalms 81:7 Thou calledst vpon me in troubles, and I deliuered thee: I hearde thee out of the middest of a thunder, I proued thee also at the waters of strife. Selah.

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

Psalms 81:8 [Then I sayd] heare O my people: and I wyll geue thee a charge O Israel in protesting vnto thee. Psalms 81:9 If thou wylt hearken vnto me, there shall be no straunge God in thee: neither shalt thou geue worship to any other Lorde beside me. Psalms 81:10 I am God thy Lorde which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wyde, and I wyll fill it. Psalms 81:11 But my people woulde not heare my voyce: and Israel would not [obey] me. Psalms 81:12 So I gaue them vp vnto the wicked cogitations of their owne heartes: and I did let them folowe their owne imaginations. Psalms 81:13 O that my people woulde haue hearkened vnto me: O that Israel had walked in my wayes. Psalms 81:14 I should soone haue tamed their enemies: and turned myne hande against their aduersaries. Psalms 81:15 The haters of God shoulde haue ben founde liers: and their time should haue endured for euer. Psalms 81:16 He woulde haue fed them also with the finest wheate flowre: and I would haue satisfied thee with honie out of the stonie rocke.
