Holman Christian Standard Bible
1For the choir director: on the Gittith. Of Asaph. Sing for joy to God our strength; shout in triumph to the God of Jacob.
2Lift up a song--play the tambourine, the melodious lyre, and the harp.
3Blow the horn on the day of our feasts during the new moon and during the full moon.
4For this is a statute for Israel, a judgment of the God of Jacob.
5He set it up as an ordinance for Joseph when He went throughout the land of Egypt. I heard an unfamiliar language:"
6I relieved his shoulder from the burden; his hands were freed from carrying the basket.
7You called out in distress, and I rescued you; I answered you from the thundercloud. I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah
8Listen, My people, and I will admonish you. Israel, if you would only listen to Me!
9There must not be a strange god among you; you must not bow down to a foreign god.
10I am Yahweh your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it."
11But My people did not listen to Me; Israel did not obey Me.
12So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own plans.
13If only My people would listen to Me and Israel would follow My ways,
14I would quickly subdue their enemies and turn My hand against their foes."
15Those who hate the LORD would pretend submission to Him; their doom would last forever.
16But He would feed Israel with the best wheat." I would satisfy you with honey from the rock."
