Psalm 81

1 Sing aloud to God our strength; shout for joy to the God of Jacob! 2 Raise a song; sound the tambourine, the sweet lyre with the harp. 3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast day.

  1. Psalm 81
    10-14 I am the Lord your God, the one who brought you out of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. “But my people did not listen to me.Israel wanted nothing to do with me. So I let them go their own stubborn ways and follow their own advice. If only my people would listen to me! If only Israel would follow me! I would quickly defeat their enemies. I would turn my power against their foes.

    Psalm 82 The Voice
    1 The True God stands to preside over the heavenly council.
    He pronounces judgment on the so-called gods.
    2 He asks: “How long will you judge dishonestly
    and be partial to the wicked?”
    3 “Stand up for the poor and the orphan;
    advocate for the rights of the afflicted and those in need.
    4 Deliver the poor and the needy;
    rescue them from their evil oppressors.”
    5 These bullies are ignorant; they have no understanding of My ways.
    So as they walk in darkness,
    the foundations of the earth tremble.
    6 I said, “Though you are gods
    and children of the Most High,
    7 You will die no differently than any mortal;
    you will fall like one of the princes.”
    8 Rise up, O True God; judge the rulers of the earth, for all the nations are Yours.
