PS 50:1 A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising to the setting of the sun.
PS 50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
PS 50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous around him.
PS 50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
PS 50:5 Gather my saints together to me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
PS 50:6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
PS 50:7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
PS 50:8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt-offerings, to have been continually before me.
PS 50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he-goats out of thy folds.
PS 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
PS 50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
PS 50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof.
PS 50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
PS 50:14 Offer to God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows to the Most High:
PS 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
PS 50:16 But to the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
PS 50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
PS 50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
PS 50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
PS 50:20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thy own mother's son.
PS 50:21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
PS 50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
PS 50:23 Whoever offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his deportment aright will I show the salvation of God.
