Sing aloud to God our strength;
Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob. 2 Raise a song and strike the timbrel,
The pleasant harp with the lute. 3 Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon,
At the full moon, on our solemn feast day.
For a this is a statute for Israel,
A law of the God of Jacob. 5 This He established in Joseph as a testimony,
When He went throughout the land of Egypt,
b Where I heard a language I did not understand. 6 "I removed his shoulder from the burden;
His hands were freed from the baskets. 7 c You called in trouble, and I delivered you;
d I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
I e tested you at the waters of 1 Meribah. Selah 8 "Hear, f O My people, and I will admonish you!
O Israel, if you will listen to Me! 9 There shall be no g foreign god among you;
Nor shall you worship any foreign god. 10 h I am the LORD your God,
Who brought you out of the land of Egypt;
i Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
"But My people would not heed My voice,
And Israel would have j none of Me. 12 k So I gave them over to 2 their own stubborn heart,
To walk in their own counsels. 13 "Oh, l that My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My ways! 14 I would soon subdue their enemies,
And turn My hand against their adversaries. 15 m The haters of the LORD would pretend submission to Him,
But their 3 fate would endure forever. 16 He would n have fed them also with 4 the finest of wheat;
And with honey o from the rock I would have satisfied you."
