PSALM 50

A Song, of Asaph

1 The God of gods, Jehovah hath spoken, And called the earth From the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.

2 Out of Zion, the Perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

3 Come shall our God, and shall not keep silence; A fire before him shall devour, And round about him a tempest shall rage exceedingly.

4 He shall call to the heavens from above, And to the earth, to judge his people.

5 “Gather together to me my meek ones, (will he say), “Those who strike a covenant with me over sacrifices.”

6 And declare shall the heavens his righteousness: For God is judge himself. Selah.

7 “Hear, O my people! and I will speak; “O Israel! and I will announce to thee: “God, [even] thy God am I.

8 “Not for thy sacrifices will I reprove thee; “And thy burnt-offerings are before me continually.

9 “I will not take out of thy house a calf, “Nor out of thy folds he-goats:

10 “For mine are all the beasts of the forest, “The cattle upon a thousand hills.

11 “I know all the birds of the mountains; “And the wild beasts of the field are at my command.

12 “If I am hungry, I will not tell thee: “For mine is the world and the fullness thereof.

13 “Will I eat the flesh of bulls, “And the blood of goats will I drink?

14 “Sacrifice unto God praise, “And pay unto the Most High thy vows.

15 “Call upon me in the day of trouble; “I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

16 “But unto the wicked said hath God, “What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, “[Or] that thou shouldest take my covenant into thy lips?

17 “Also thou hatest correction, “And castest my words behind thee.

18 “If thou seest a thief, thou wilt run with him, “And with adulterers is thy portion.

19 “Thy mouth thou puttest forth to evil, “And thy tongue frameth deceit,

20 “Thou wilt sit against thy brother; “Thou wilt speak against the sons of thy mother; “Thou wilt set forth slander.

21 “These things thou hast done, and I kept silence; “Thou thoughtest that I would be like thyself’: “I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

22 “Now consider this, ye who forget God, “Lest I seize upon you and there be none to deliver.

23 “He who sacrificeth praise will glorify me: “And he who ordereth his way to him will I show the salvation of God.”
