1 For the end, a Psalm for * Alex. David.Asaph, concerning the wine-presses.
2 Rejoice ye in God our helper; shout aloud to the God of Jacob. 3 Take a psalm, and produce the timbrel, the pleasant psaltery with the harp. 4 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, in the glorious day of † Alex. our.your feast.
5 For this is an ordinance for Israel, and a statute of the God of Jacob. 6 He made ‡ Gr. him, sc. Israel.it to be a testimony in Joseph, when he came forth out of the land of Egypt: he heard a language which he understood not.
7 He removed his back from burdens: his hands slaved in making the baskets. 8 Thou didst call upon me in trouble, and I delivered thee; I heard thee in the secret place of the storm: I proved thee at the water of § Lit. contradiction.Strife. Pause. 9 Hear, my people, and I will speak to thee, O Israel; and I will testify to thee: if thou wilt hearken to me; 10 there shall be no new god in thee; neither shalt thou worship a strange god. 11 For I am the Lord thy God, that brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. 12 But my people hearkened not to my voice; and Israel gave no heed to me. 13 So I let them go after the ways of their own hearts: they will go on in their own ways.
14 If my people had hearkened to me, if Israel had walked in my ways, 15 I should have put down their enemies very quickly, and should have laid my hand upon those that afflicted them. 16 The Lord's enemies should have lied to him: but ** sc. of the others.their time shall be for ever. 17 And he fed them with the fat of wheat; and satisfied them with honey out of the rock.
