Psalms 50

1The Mighty One, God, Jehovah, has spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun to the going down thereof. 2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth. 3Our God comes, and does not keep silence. A fire devours before him, and it is very tempestuous round about him. 4He calls to the heavens above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people. 5Gather my sanctified together to me, those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. 6And the heavens shall declare his righteousness, for God is judge himself. Selah. 7Hear, O my people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will testify to thee, I am God, even thy God. 8I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices, and thy burnt offerings being continually before me. 9I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he-goats out of thy folds. 10For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. 11I know all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are mine. 12If I were hungry, I would not tell thee, for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof. 13Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? 14Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and pay thy vows to the Most High. 15And call upon me in the day of trouble. I will deliver thee, and thou shall glorify me. 16But to the wicked man God says, What have thou to do to declare my statutes, and that thou have taken my covenant in thy mouth, 17since thou hate instruction, and cast my words behind thee? 18When thou saw a thief, thou consented with him, and have been partaker with adulterers. 19Thou give thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frames deceit. 20Thou sit and speak against thy brother; thou slander thine own mother's son. 21These things thou have done, and I kept silence. Thou thought that I was altogether such a one as thyself. But I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. 22Now consider this, ye who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver: 23Whoever offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies me. And to him who orders his way aright I will show the salvation of God.
