Psalm 81:6-16 GNT
“I took the burdens off your backs;
I let you put down your loads of bricks.
When you were in trouble, you called to me, and I saved you.
From my hiding place in the storm, I answered you.
I put you to the test at the springs of Meribah.
Listen, my people, to my warning;
Israel, how I wish you would listen to me!
You must never worship another god.
I am the LORD your God,
who brought you out of Egypt.
Open your mouth, and I will feed you.
“But my people would not listen to me;
Israel would not obey me.
So I let them go their stubborn ways
and do whatever they wanted.
How I wish my people would listen to me;
how I wish they would obey me!
I would quickly defeat their enemies
and conquer all their foes.
Those who hate me would bow in fear before me;
their punishment would last forever.
But I would feed you with the finest wheat
and satisfy you with wild honey.”
