Psalm 81:6-7

6-7"I took the world off your shoulders,

freed you from a life of hard labor.

You called to me in your pain;

I got you out of a bad place.

I answered you from where the thunder hides,

I proved you at Meribah Fountain.

8-10"Listen, dear ones—get this straight;

O Israel, don't take this lightly.

Don't take up with strange gods,

don't worship the latest in gods.

I'm God, your God, the very God

who rescued you from doom in Egypt,

Then fed you all you could eat,

filled your hungry stomachs.
