Ang Pulong Sang Dios

Salmo 81

Pagdayaw sa Kaayo sang Dios

1Magkanta kamo sa kalipay sa Dios nga naghatag sa aton sang kusog.
Maghinugyaw kamo sa Dios ni Jacob!
Suguri ninyo ang pagkanta;
patunuga ninyo ang tamborin,
kag patukara ang manami pamatian nga mga instrumento nga may mga kuwerdas.
Patunuga ninyo ang budyong sa pagsaulog sang Piesta sang Pag-umpisa sang Bulan kag sang piesta[a] nga ginahiwat naton kon bilog ang bulan.
Kay amo ini ang pagsulundan para sa mga taga-Israel.
Sugo ini sang Dios ni Jacob.
Ginhatag niya ini nga pagpanudlo sa mga kaliwat ni Jose sang ginsalakay niya ang[b] Egipto.

Nakabati ako sang tingog nga wala ko makilal-i nga nagasiling,
Ginhilway ko kamo sa pagkaulipon;
ginkuha ko ang mga mabug-at nga ginapas-an kag ginabitbit ninyo.
Sang ara kamo sa kalisod nagpanawag kamo sa akon kag ginluwas ko kamo.
Halin sa mga gal-om ginsabat ko kamo.
Gintilawan ko kamo didto sa tuburan sang Meriba.

“Katawhan ko nga mga Israelinhon, pamatii ninyo ining akon paandam sa inyo.
Magpamati kuntani kamo sa akon!
Dapat wala kamo sing iban nga dios;
indi gid kamo magsimba sa ila.
10 Ako ang Ginoo nga inyo Dios nga nagpaguwa sa inyo sa Egipto.
Magpangayo kamo sa akon kag hatagan ko kamo sang inyo mga kinahanglanon.

11 “Pero kamo nga mga Israelinhon nga akon katawhan, wala kamo magpamati kag magtuman sa akon.
12 Gani ginpabay-an ko kamo sa inyo pagkabatinggilan, kag ginhimo ninyo ang inyo gusto.
13 Kon magpamati lang kuntani kamo kag magsunod sa akon mga pamaagi,
14 silutan kag pierdihon ko gilayon ang inyo mga kaaway.
15 Ang mga nagakaugot sa akon, magaluhod sa akon sa kahadlok.
Ang ila silot wala sing katapusan.
16 Pero kamo nga akon katawhan pakaunon kag busgon ko sang labing maayo nga trigo kag dugos.”

Amplified Bible

Psalm 81

God’s Goodness and Israel’s Waywardness.

To the Chief Musician; set to the [a]Philistine lute. A Psalm of Asaph.

1Sing aloud to God our strength;
Shout for joy to the God of Jacob (Israel).

Raise a song, sound the timbrel,
The sweet sounding lyre with the harp.

Blow the trumpet at the New Moon,
At the [b]full moon, on our feast day.

For this is a statute for Israel,
An ordinance of the God of Jacob.

He established it for a testimony in [c]Joseph
When He went throughout the land of Egypt.
I heard the language [of One whom] I did not know, saying,


“I removed the burden from his shoulder;
His hands were freed from the basket.

“You called in [the time of] trouble and I rescued you;
I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.

“Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you—
O Israel, if you would listen to Me!

“Let there be no strange god among you,
Nor shall you worship any foreign god.
10 
“I am the Lord your God,
Who brought you up from the land of Egypt.
Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.

11 
“But My people would not listen to My voice,
And Israel did not [consent to] obey Me.
12 
“So I gave them up to the stubbornness of their heart,
To walk in [the path of] their own counsel.
13 
“Oh, that My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My ways!
14 
“Then I would quickly subdue and humble their enemies
And turn My hand against their adversaries;
15 
Those who hate the Lord would pretend obedience to Him and cringe before Him,
And their time of punishment would be forever.
16 
“But I would feed Israel with the finest of the wheat;
And with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 81:1 A technical musical term, meaning uncertain.
  2. Psalm 81:3 Or New Moon, lit covering, i.e. when the moon is “covered” or hidden. This was taken by the ancient rabbis to refer to the festival of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana).
  3. Psalm 81:5 Curiously, in this one verse Joseph’s name has an extra letter, an “h.” In an example of rabbinic lore, the ancient rabbis said that because Joseph sanctified the divine name in private (by resisting Potiphar’s wife) he merited having one letter of the divine name (Yahweh) added to his. Another rabbinic explanation is that when Pharaoh was about to elevate Joseph to power, the astrologers demanded that Joseph speak the 70 languages of the world. The angel Gabriel came to teach him, but Joseph was unable until Gabriel added to his name the extra letter from the divine name.
