A Psalm of Asaph

Ps 50:1The Mighty One, God Jehovah, / Speaks and summons the earth / From the rising of the sun to its setting.

Ps 50:2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, / God shines forth.

Ps 50:3Our God has come and will not be silent; / Fire devours before Him, / And around Him it is exceedingly tempestuous.

Ps 50:4He calls to the heavens above, / And to the earth that He may judge His people:

Ps 50:5Gather My saints to Me, / Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.

Ps 50:6Then the heavens declare His righteousness, / For God Himself is Judge. Selah

Ps 50:7Hear, O My people, and I will speak; / O Israel, and I will testify against you: / I am God, your God.

Ps 50:8I will not reprove you because of your sacrifices, / And your burnt offerings are before Me continually.

Ps 50:9I will not take a bull from your house / Nor goats from your folds,

Ps 50:10For every animal of the forest is Mine, / The cattle upon a thousand hills.

Ps 50:11I know every bird of the mountains, / And I am aware of everything that moves in the field.

Ps 50:12If I were hungry, I would not tell you; / For the world is Mine and the fullness thereof.

Ps 50:13Shall I eat the flesh of bulls / Or drink the blood of goats?

Ps 50:14Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, / And repay your vows to the Most High;

Ps 50:15And call upon Me in the day of trouble: / I will deliver you, and you will glorify Me.

Ps 50:16But to the wicked God says, / What right do you have to declare My statutes / And take up My covenant in your mouth,

Ps 50:17Seeing that you hate correction / And cast My words behind you?

Ps 50:18When you see a thief, you take pleasure in him; / And your portion is with adulterers.

Ps 50:19You let your mouth loose for evil, / And your tongue frames deceit.

Ps 50:20You sit and speak against your brother; / You defame the son of your mother.

Ps 50:21These things you do, and I keep silent; / You think that I am altogether like you. / I will rebuke you and set forth the matter in order before your eyes.

Ps 50:22Consider this then, you who forget God, / Lest I tear you apart and there be none to deliver you.

Ps 50:23Whoever offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies Me; / And to him who sets his way right I will show the salvation of God.
