Tehillim 81

Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

(For the one directing. On the gittis. Of Asaph.) Sing with joy unto Elohim uzeinu (our strength); make a joyful noise unto Elohei Ya’akov. 2 Begin a song, and bring hither the tambourine, the pleasant kinnor (harp) with the nevel (lyre). 3 Blow the shofar at Rosh Chodesh, at the full moon, on Yom Chageinu. 4 For this was a chok for Yisroel, and a mishpat of the Elohei Ya’akov. 5 This He ordained in Yosef for an edut, when He went out over Eretz Mitzra- yim; where a language of one not known did I hear. 6 I removed his shekhem (shoulder) from the burden; his hands were delivered from the basket. 7 In tzoros thou calledst, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the seter ra’am (secret place of thunder); I tested thee at the waters of Merivah. Selah. 8 Shema, O My people, and I will admonish thee; O Yisroel, if thou wilt pay heed unto Me; 9 There shall no el zar (strange, foreign g-d) be among thee; neither shalt thou worship any el nechar (foreign g-d). 10 I am Hashem Eloheicha Who brought thee out of Eretz Mitzrayim; open thy mouth wide, I will fill it. 11 But My people would not pay heed to My voice; and Yisroel would have none of Me. 12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ sherirut (stubbornness); and they walked in their own mo’atzot (counsels). 13 Oh that My people had paid heed unto Me, and Yisroel had walked in My ways! 14 I should soon have subdued their oyevim and turned My Yad (hand, power) against their adversaries. 15 The haters of Hashem should have cringed before Him; their et (time, fate, punishment) endures l’olam. 16 He would have fed them also with the finest of the chittah (wheat); and with devash (honey) from the Tzur would I have satisfied thee.
