Context
Sing Aloud to God, Our Strength!

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