Psalm chapter 81

1
Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
2
Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3
Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
4
For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.
5
This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: where I heard a language that I understood not.
6
I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.
7
Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
8
Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
9
There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.
10
I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
11
But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
12
So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.
13
Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways!
14
I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
15
The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.
16
He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

Psalm chapter 82

1
God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
2
How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
3
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
5
They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
7
But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
8
Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

Psalm chapter 83

1
Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2
For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3
They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5
For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
6
The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
7
Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8
Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
9
Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
10
Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.
11
Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
12
Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
13
O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
14
As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
15
So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
16
Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
17
Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
18
That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

Psalm chapter 84

1
How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
2
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3
Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
4
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
5
Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
6
Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
7
They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
8
O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
9
Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
10
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12
O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.

Psalm chapter 85

1
LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2
Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3
Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
4
Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5
Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6
Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7
Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
8
I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
9
Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11
Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12
Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13
Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
