¶ To the chanter upon Githith, of Asaph.Sing merrily unto God which is our strength, make a cheerful noise unto the God of Iacob. Take the Psalm, bring hither the taboret, the merry harp and lute. Blow up the trumpets in the new moon, upon our solempne feast day. For this is the use in Israel, and a law of the God of Iacob. This he ordained in Ioseph for a testimony, when he came out of Egypt, and had heard a strange language. When he eased his shoulder from the burthen, and when his hands were delivered from the pots. When thou calledest upon me in trouble, I helped thee, and heard thee, what time as the storm fell upon thee, I proved thee also at the water of strife. Selah.
¶ Hear, O my people, for I assure thee, O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me: There shall no strange God be in thee, neither shalt thou worship any other God. I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, open thy mouth wide, and I shall fill it. But my people would not hear my voice, and Israel would not obey me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust, and let them follow their own imaginations. O that my people would obey me, for if Israel would walk in my ways: I should soon put down their enemies, and turn my hand against their adversaries. The haters of the LORD should miss Israel, but their time should endure for ever. He should feed them with the finest wheat flour, and satisfy them with honey out of the stony rock.
