Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 81

An exhortation to a solemn praising of God.

Psalms 81:1 {To the Chief Musician. On "the Gittith." Asaph's.} Shout ye for joy, unto God our strength, Sound the note of triumph, to the God of Jacob; Psalms 81:2 Raise a melody, and strike the timbrel, The lyre so sweet, with the harp: Psalms 81:3 Blow, at the new moon, the horn, At the full moon, for the day of our sacred festival:

God challengeth that duty by reason of his benefits.

Psalms 81:4 For, a statute to Israel, it is, A regulation, by the God of Jacob; Psalms 81:5 A testimony in Joseph, he appointed it, When he went forth over the land of Egypt: A language I liked not, used I to hear; Psalms 81:6 I took away, from the burden, his shoulder, his hands, from the clay, were set free. Psalms 81:7 In distress, thou didst cry, and I delivered thee,—I answered thee, within a hiding-place of thunder, I proved thee by the waters of Meribah. [Selah.]

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

Psalms 81:8 Hear, O my people, and I will adjure thee, O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me! Psalms 81:9 There shall not be, within thee, a foreign GOD,—Neither shalt thou bow down to a strange GOD: Psalms 81:10 I, Yahweh, am thy God, Who brought thee up out of the land of Egypt,—Open wide thy mouth, that I may fill it. Psalms 81:11 But my people, hearkened not, unto my voice, Even, Israel, inclined not unto me. Psalms 81:12 So then I let them go on in the stubbornness of their own heart, They might walk in their own counsels! Psalms 81:13 If, my people, were hearkening unto me, [If,] Israel, in my ways, would walk, Psalms 81:14 Right soon, their foes, would I subdue, And, against their adversaries, would I turn my hand: Psalms 81:15 The haters of Yahweh, should come cringing unto him, Then let their own good time be age-abiding! Psalms 81:16 Then would he feed them from the marrow of the wheat, Yea, out of the rock—with honey, would I satisfy thee.
