Psalm 81:8 – Admonish You

Today’s Readings: Josh 5:1‐7:15, Luke 15:1‐32, Ps 81:1‐16, Prov 13:1

Psalm 81:8 – Hear, O my people, while I admonish you!
O Israel, if you would but listen to me!

Observations:

  • Hear – sh’ma in Hebrew
  • O my people / O Israel – God’s chosen people
  • While I admonish – warn strongly, counsel in terms of behavior
  • If you would but listen to me! – implying benefits if we would sh’ma

Apply: I want to diligently sh’ma the admonition of the Lord.

Where do find the admonition of the Lord outside of scripture?
