An Admonition to Fidelity

1For the leader; “upon the gittith.”* Of Asaph.

2Sing joyfully to God our strength; e Pss 43, 4; 68, 26; 149, 3; 150, 3–4; Jdt 16, 1 . shout in triumph to the God of Jacob! 3Take up a melody, sound the timbrel, the sweet‐sounding harp and lyre. 4Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon,* on our solemn feast. f Lev 23, 24; Nm 29, 1 . 5For this is a law in Israel, an edict of the God of Jacob, g Ex 23, 14ff . 6Who made it a decree for Joseph when he came out of the land of Egypt.

I hear a new oracle:* 7“I relieved their shoulders of the burden;* their hands put down the basket. h Ex 1, 14; 6, 6 . * 8In distress you called and I rescued you; unseen, I spoke to you in thunder; At the waters of Meribah* I tested you and said: i Ps 95, 8; Ex 2, 23ff; 17, 7; 19, 16; Nm 20, 13; 27, 14 .   Selah 9‘Listen, my people, I give you warning! If only you will obey me, Israel! j Ex 1, 14; 6, 6 . 10There must be no foreign god among you; k 81, 10–11: Ex 20, 2–6; Dt 5, 6–10 . * you must not worship an alien god. 11I, the LORD, am your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. Open wide your mouth that I may fill it.' 12But my people did not listen to my words; Israel did not obey me. 13So I gave them over to hardness of heart; they followed their own designs. l Jer 3, 17; 7, 24 . 14But even now if my people would listen, if Israel would walk in my paths, m Is 48, 18 . 15In a moment I would subdue their foes, against their enemies unleash my hand. n Lv 26, 7–8 . 16Those who hate the LORD would tremble, their doom sealed forever. 17But Israel I would feed with the finest wheat, satisfy them with honey from the rock.” o Ps 147, 14; Dt 32, 13–14 .
