81 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of Asaph. ] לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל־הַגִּתִּית לְאָסָף׃ Psalm for the Feast of Tabernacles. Psalm 81(v80)
Sing aloud to God our strength;
shout for joy to the God of Jacob!
הַרְנִינוּ לֵאלֹהִים עוּזֵּנוּ הָרִיעוּ לֵאלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב׃  
Raise a song, sound the timbrel,
the sweet lyre with the harp.
שְׂאוּ־זִמְרָה וּתְנוּ־תֹף כִּנֹּור נָעִים עִם־נָבֶל׃  
Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
at the full moon, on our feast day.
תִּקְעוּ בַחֹדֶשׁ שֹׁופָר בַּכֵּסֶה לְיֹום חַגֵּנוּ׃  
For it is a statute for Israel,
an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
כִּי חֹק לְיִשְׂרָאֵל הוּא מִשְׁפָּט לֵאלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב׃  
He made it a decree in Joseph,
when he went out over the land of Egypt.

I hear a voice I had not known:

עֵדוּת בִּיהֹוסֵף שָׂמֹו בְּצֵאתֹו עַל־אֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם

שְׂפַת לֹא־יָדַעְתִּי אֶשְׁמָע׃

 
"I relieved your shoulder of the burden;
your hands were freed from the basket.
הֲסִירֹותִי מִסֵּבֶל שִׁכְמֹו כַּפָּיו מִדּוּד תַּעֲבֹרְנָה׃  
In distress you called, and I delivered you;
I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
I tested you at the waters of Mer'ibah. [Selah]
בַּצָּרָה קָרָאתָ וָאֲחַלְּצֶךָּ אֶעֶנְךָ בְּסֵתֶר רַעַם
אֶבְחָנְךָ עַל־מֵי מְרִיבָה סֶלָה׃
 
Hear, O my people, while I admonish you!
O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
שְׁמַע עַמִּי וְאָעִידָה בָּךְ יִשְׂרָאֵל אִם־תִּשְׁמַע־לִי׃  
There shall be no strange god among you;
you shall not bow down to a foreign god.
לֹא־יִהְיֶה בְךָ אֵל זָר וְלֹא תִשְׁתַּחֲוֶה לְאֵל נֵכָר׃  
I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
אָנֹכִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ הַמַּעַלְךָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם
הַרְחֶב־פִּיךָ וַאֲמַלְאֵהוּ׃
 
"But my people did not listen to my voice;
Israel would have none of me.
וְלֹא־שָׁמַע עַמִּי לְקֹולִי וְיִשְׂרָאֵל לֹא־אָבָה לִי׃  
So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,
to follow their own counsels.
וָאֲשַׁלְּחֵהוּ בִּשְׁרִירוּת לִבָּם יֵלְכוּ בְּמֹועֲצֹותֵיהֶם׃  
O that my people would listen to me,
that Israel would walk in my ways!
לוּ עַמִּי שֹׁמֵעַ לִי יִשְׂרָאֵל בִּדְרָכַי יְהַלֵּכוּ׃  
I would soon subdue their enemies,
and turn my hand against their foes.
כִּמְעַט אֹויְבֵיהֶם אַכְנִיעַ וְעַל צָרֵיהֶם אָשִׁיב יָדִי׃  
Those who hate the LORD would cringe toward him,
and their fate would last for ever.
מְשַׂנְאֵי יְהוָה יְכַחֲשׁוּ־לֹו וִיהִי עִתָּם לְעֹולָם׃  
I would feed you with the finest of the wheat,
and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you."
וַיַּאֲכִילֵהוּ מֵחֵלֶב חִטָּה וּמִצּוּר דְּבַשׁ אַשְׂבִּיעֶךָ׃  
      << | Psalms: 81 | >>
