Psalms 81

An exhortation to a solemn praising of God.

Psalms 81:1 {To him that excelleth vpon Gittith. A Psalme committed to Asaph.} Sing ioyfully vnto God our strength: sing loude vnto the God of Iaakob. Psalms 81:2 Take the song and bring forth the timbrel, the pleasant harpe with the viole. Psalms 81:3 Blowe the trumpet in the newe moone, euen in the time appointed, at our feast day.

God challengeth that duty by reason of his benefits.

Psalms 81:4 For this is a statute for Israel, and a Law of the God of Iaakob. Psalms 81:5 Hee set this in Ioseph for a testimonie, when hee came out of the land of Egypt, where I heard a language, that I vnderstoode not. Psalms 81:6 I haue withdrawen his shoulder from the burden, and his handes haue left the pots. Psalms 81:7 Thou calledst in affliction and I deliuered thee, and answered thee in the secret of the thunder: I prooued 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 wil protest vnto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken vnto me, Psalms 81:9 Let there bee no strange god in thee, neither worship thou any strange god. Psalms 81:10 For 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 heare my voyce, and Israel would none of me. Psalms 81:12 So I gaue them vp vnto the hardnes of their heart, & they haue walked in their owne cousels. Psalms 81:13 Oh that my people had hearkened vnto me, and Israel had walked in my wayes. Psalms 81:14 I would soone haue humbled their enemies, and turned mine hand against their aduersaries. Psalms 81:15 The haters of the Lorde should haue bene subiect vnto him, and their time should haue endured for euer. Psalms 81:16 And God would haue fedde them with the fatte of wheat, and with honie out of the rocke would I haue sufficed thee.
