Psalm 81
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

Sing for Joy to God Our Strength

1(80:1) For the end, a Psalm for Asaph, concerning the wine-presses. Rejoice ye in God our helper; shout aloud to the God of Jacob.

2(80:2) Take a psalm, and produce the timbrel, the pleasant psaltery with the harp.

3(80:3) Blow the trumpet at the new moon, in the glorious day of your feast.

4(80:4) For this is an ordinance for Israel, and a statute of the God of Jacob.

5(80:5) He made it to be a testimony in Joseph, when he came forth out of the land of Egypt: he heard a language which he understood not.

6(80:6) He removed his back from burdens: his hands slaved in making the baskets.

7(80:7) Thou didst call upon me in trouble, and I delivered thee; I heard thee in the secret place of the storm: I proved thee at the water of Strife. Pause.

8(80:8) Hear, my people, and I will speak to thee, O Israel; and I will testify to thee: if thou wilt hearken to me;

9(80:9) there shall be no new god in thee; neither shalt thou worship a strange god.

10(80:10) For I am the Lord thy God, that brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11(80:11) But my people hearkened not to my voice; and Israel gave no heed to me.

12(80:12) So I let them go after the ways of their own hearts: they will go on in their own ways.

13(80:13) If my people had hearkened to me, if Israel had walked in my ways,

14(80:14) I should have put down their enemies very quickly, and should have laid my hand upon those that afflicted them.

15(80:15) The Lord's enemies should have lied to him: but their time shall be for ever.

16(80:16) And he fed them with the fat of wheat; and satisfied them with honey out of the rock.
