50:1 A Psalm of Asaph. God, God, the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.

50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined forth.

50:3 Our God cometh, and doth not keep silence; a fire devoureth before Him, and round about Him it stormeth mightily.

50:4 He calleth to the heavens above, and to the earth, that He may judge His people:

50:5 'Gather My saints together unto Me; those that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.'

50:6 And the heavens declare His righteousness; for God, He is judge. Selah

50:7 'Hear, O My people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: God, thy God, am I.

50:8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices; and thy burnt-offerings are continually before Me.

50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he-goats out of thy folds.

50:10 For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.

50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains; and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.

50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee; for the world is Mine, and the fulness thereof.

50:13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?

50:14 Offer unto God the sacrifice of thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the Most High;

50:15 And call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and thou shalt honour Me.'

50:16 But unto the wicked God saith: 'What hast thou to do to declare My statutes, and that thou hast taken My covenant in thy mouth?

50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest My words behind thee.

50:18 When thou sawest a thief, thou hadst company with him, and with adulterers was thy portion.

50:19 Thou hast let loose thy mouth for evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.

50:20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.

50:21 These things hast thou done, and should I have kept silence? Thou hadst thought that I was altogether such a one as thyself; but I will reprove thee, and set the cause before thine eyes.

50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

50:23 Whoso offereth the sacrifice of thanksgiving honoureth Me; and to him that ordereth his way aright will I show the salvation of God.'
