Psalm 81:8 – Hear, O my people, while I admonish you!
O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
- Hear – sh’ma in Hebrew
- O my people / O Israel – God’s chosen people
- While I admonish – warn strongly, counsel in terms of behavior

Apply: I want to diligently sh’ma the admonition of the Lord.
Where do find the admonition of the Lord outside of scripture?
