Chapter 50

PSA.50:1 A Psalm of Asaph. The Mighty One, God the LORD, Has spoken and called the earth From the rising of the sun to its going down.
PSA.50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth.
PSA.50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent; A fire shall devour before Him, And it shall be very tempestuous all around Him.
PSA.50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, And to the earth, that He may judge His people:
PSA.50:5 “Gather My saints together to Me, Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.”
PSA.50:6 Let the heavens declare His righteousness, For God Himself is Judge. Selah
PSA.50:7 “Hear, O My people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will testify against you; I am God, your God!
PSA.50:8 I will not rebuke you for your sacrifices Or your burnt offerings, Which are continually before Me.
PSA.50:9 I will not take a bull from your house, Nor goats out of your folds.
PSA.50:10 For every beast of the forest is Mine, And the cattle on a thousand hills.
PSA.50:11 I know all the birds of the mountains, And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.
PSA.50:12 “If I were hungry, I would not tell you; For the world is Mine, and all its fullness.
PSA.50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, Or drink the blood of goats?
PSA.50:14 Offer to God thanksgiving, And pay your vows to the Most High.
PSA.50:15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”
PSA.50:16 But to the wicked God says: “What right have you to declare My statutes, Or take My covenant in your mouth,
PSA.50:17 Seeing you hate instruction And cast My words behind you?
PSA.50:18 When you saw a thief, you consented with him, And have been a partaker with adulterers.
PSA.50:19 You give your mouth to evil, And your tongue frames deceit.
PSA.50:20 You sit and speak against your brother; You slander your own mother’s son.
PSA.50:21 These things you have done, and I kept silent; You thought that I was altogether like you; But I will rebuke you, And set them in order before your eyes.
PSA.50:22 “Now consider this, you who forget God, Lest I tear you in pieces, And there be none to deliver:
PSA.50:23 Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; And to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God.”
