Oh, That My People Would Listen to Me1 d Sing aloud to God our strength;
e shout for joy to the God of Jacob!
2Raise a song; sound f the tambourine,
g the sweet lyre with h the harp.
3Blow the trumpet at i the new moon,
at the full moon, on our feast day.
4 For it is a statute for Israel,
a rule ▼
▼Or just decreeof the God of Jacob.
5He made it k a decree in l Joseph
when he m went out over ▼
▼Or againstthe land of Egypt.
o I hear a language p I had not known:
6“I q relieved your ▼
▼Hebrew his; also next lineshoulder of s the burden;
your hands were freed from the basket.
7In distress you t called, and I delivered you;
I u answered you in the secret place of thunder;
I v tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah
8 w Hear, O my people, while I admonish you!
O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
9There shall be no x strange god among you;
you shall not bow down to a y foreign god.
10 z I am the Lord your God,
who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
aa Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
11 “But my people did not listen to my voice;
Israel ab would not submit to me.
12So I ac gave them over to their ad stubborn hearts,
to follow their own ae counsels.
13 af Oh, that my people would listen to me,
that Israel would ag walk in my ways!
14I would soon subdue their enemies
and ah turn my hand against their foes.
15Those who hate the Lord would ai cringe toward him,
and their fate would last forever.
16But he would feed you ▼
▼That is, Israel; Hebrew himwith ak the finest of the wheat,
and with al honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
