|To the chief Musician upon Gittith, a Psalm of Asaph.
|1||Sing aloud unto God
our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
|2||Take a psalm, and
bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
|3||Blow up the trumpet

|10||I am the LORD
thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth

|13||Oh that my people

|14||I should soon have

|16||He should have fed

should I have satisfied thee.
||honey out of the rock|
