Year C - Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost - August 28, 2016
Psalm 81:1, 10-16
To the leader: according to The Gittith. Of Asaph.
Sing aloud to God our strength;
shout for joy to the God of Jacob.
I am the LORD your God,
who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.
“But my people did not listen to my voice;
Israel would not submit to me.
So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,
to follow their own counsels.
O that my people would listen to me,
that Israel would walk in my ways!
Then I would quickly subdue their enemies,
and turn my hand against their foes.
Those who hate the LORD would cringe before him,
and their doom would last forever.
I would feed you with the finest of the wheat,
and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
