PSA 81:8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if
thou wilt hearken unto me;
PSA 81:9 There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou
worship any strange god.
PSA 81:10 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of
Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
PSA 81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would
none of me.
PSA 81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they
walked in their own counsels.
