1Sing aloud to God, our strength! Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob!
2Lift up a song and bring forth a tambourine, a sweet-sounding harp along with the lyre.
3Blow the shofar at the New Moon, at the full moon, on the day of our festival.
4For it is a statute for Israel, a mandate from the God of Jacob.
5He set it up in Joseph as a testimony; when he went out against the land of Egypt, I heard speech that I did not know.
6“I removed his shoulder from the burden. His hands were freed from the basket.
7You called in distress, and I delivered you. I answered you in the secret place of thunder. I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
8“Hear, O my people, and I will admonish you, O Israel, if you would only hear me!
9There must be no strange god among you, nor should you bow down toa any foreign god.
10I am Yahweh your God, the one who brought you up from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
11But my people did not listen to my voice, and Israel did not want me.
12So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their hearts, they walked according to their own plans.
13Oh that my people would listen to me, that Israel would walk in my ways!
14I would quickly humble their enemies and turn my hand against their foes.
15Those who hate Yahweh will come to him trembling, and may the time of their humiliation be perpetual.
16But Yahweh would feed Israel with the fat of the wheat. Yes, I will satisfy you with honey out of the rock.”
