1[For the choirmaster On the . . . of Gath Of Asaph] Sing for joy to God our strength, shout in triumph tothe God of Jacob. 2Strike up the music, beat the tambourine, play the melodious harp and the lyre; 3blow the trumpet for the new month, for the ful moon, for our feast day! 4For Israel has this statute, a decision of the God of Jacob, 5a decree he imposed on Joseph, when he went to war against Egypt. I heard a voice unknown to me, 6'I freed his shoulder from the burden, his hands were able to lay aside the labourer's basket. 7You cried out in your distress, so I rescued you. 'Hidden in the storm, I answered you, I tested you atthe waters of Meribah.Pause 8Listen, my people, while I give you warning; Israel, if only you would listen to me! 9'You shal have no strange gods, shall worship no alien god. 10I, Yahweh, am your God, who brought you here from Egypt, you have only to open your mouth forme to fil it. 11'My people would not listen to me, Israel would have none of me. 12So I left them to their stubborn selves, to fol ow their own devices. 13'If only my people would listen to me, if only Israel would walk in my ways, 14at one stroke I would subdue their enemies, turn my hand against their opponents. 15'Those who hate Yahweh would woo his favour, though their doom was sealed for ever, 16while I would feed him on pure wheat, would give you your fil of honey from the rock.'
