Psalm 81:4-16Names of God Bible (NOG)
This is a law for Israel,
a legal decision from the Elohim of Jacob.
These are the instructions Elohim set in place for Joseph
when Joseph rose to power over Egypt.
I heard a message I did not understand:
“I removed the burden from his shoulder.
His hands were freed from the basket.
When you were in trouble, you called out to me, and I rescued you.
I was hidden in thunder, but I answered you.
I tested your loyalty at the oasis of Meribah. Selah
Listen, my people, and I will warn you.
Israel, if you would only listen to me!
Never keep any strange god among you.
Never worship a foreign god.
I am Yahweh your Elohim, the one who brought you out of Egypt.
Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
“But my people did not listen to me.
Israel wanted nothing to do with me.
So I let them go their own stubborn ways
and follow their own advice.
If only my people would listen to me!
If only Israel would follow me!
I would quickly defeat their enemies.
I would turn my power against their foes.
Those who hate Yahweh would cringe in front of him,
and their time for punishment would last forever.
But I would feed Israel with the finest wheat
and satisfy them with honey from a rock.
Exodus 17:1-7Names of God Bible (NOG)
The Lord Provides Water for the Israelites from a Rock
17 The whole community of Israelites left the desert of Sin and traveled from place to place as Yahweh commanded them. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 So they complained to Moses by saying, “Give us water to drink!”
Moses said to them, “Why are you complaining to me? Why are you testing Yahweh?”
3 But the people were thirsty for water there. They complained to Moses and asked, “Why did you bring us out of Egypt? Was it to make us, our children, and our livestock die of thirst?”
4 So Moses cried out to Yahweh, “What should I do with these people? They’re almost ready to stone me!”
5 Yahweh answered Moses, “Bring some of the leaders of Israel with you, and go to where the people can see you. Take the staff you used to strike the Nile River. 6 I’ll be standing in front of you there by a rock at Mount Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.”
Moses did this while the leaders of Israel watched him.
7 He named that place Massah [Testing] and Meribah [Complaining] because the Israelites complained and because they tested Yahweh, asking, “Is Yahweh with us or not?”
