Psalm 81
Douay-Rheims Bible

Sing Aloud to God, Our Strength!

1{80:1}Unto the end, for the winepresses, a psalm for Asaph himself. [2] Rejoice to God our helper: sing aloud to the God of Jacob.

2{80:3}Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel: the pleasant psaltery with the harp.

3{80:4}Blow up the trumpet on the new moon, on the noted day of your solemnity.

4{80:5}For it is a commandment in Israel, and a judgment to the God of Jacob.

5{80:6}He ordained it for a testimony in Joseph, when he came out of the land of Egypt: he heard a tongue which he knew not.

6{80:7}He removed his back from the burdens: his hands had served in baskets.

7{80:8}Thou calledst upon me in affliction, and I delivered thee: I heard thee in the secret place of tempest: I proved thee at the waters of contradiction.

8{80:9}Hear, O my people, and I will testify to thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken to me,

9{80:10}there shall be no new god in thee: neither shalt thou adore a strange god.

10{80:11}For I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11{80:12}But my people heard not my voice: and Israel hearkened not to me.

12{80:13}So I let them go according to the desires of their heart: they shall walk in their own inventions.

13{80:14}If my people had heard me: if Israel had walked in my ways:

14{80:15}I should soon have humbled their enemies, and laid my hand on them that troubled them.

15{80:16}The enemies of the Lord have lied to him: and their time shall be for ever.

16{80:17}And he fed them with the fat of wheat, and filled them with honey out of the rock.
