Psalms 81

An exhortation to a solemn praising of God.

Psalms 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; Psalms 81:2 Raise a song, and sound the tambour, the pleasant harp with the lute. Psalms 81:3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the set time, on our feast day:

God challengeth that duty by reason of his benefits.

Psalms 81:4 For this is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob; Psalms 81:5 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. Psalms 81:6 I removed his shoulder from the burden; his hands were freed from the basket. Psalms 81:7 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.

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

Psalms 81:8 Hear, my people, and I will testify unto thee; O Israel, if thou wouldest hearken unto me! Psalms 81:9 There shall no strange *god be in thee, neither shalt thou worship any foreign *god. Psalms 81:10 I am Jehovah thy God, that brought thee up out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. Psalms 81:11 But my people hearkened not to my voice, and Israel would none of me. Psalms 81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' stubbornness: they walked after their own counsels. Psalms 81:13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, that Israel had walked in my ways! Psalms 81:14 I would soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries. Psalms 81:15 The haters of Jehovah would have come cringing unto him; but their time would have been for ever. Psalms 81:16 And he would have fed them with the finest of wheat; yea, with honey out of the rock would I have satisfied thee.
