PSALMS · Chapter 50
50:1 The mighty God, even the LORD, has 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 has shined.
50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
50:4 He shall call to the heavens from 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 shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
50:7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against you: I am God, even your God.
50:8 I will not reprove you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
50:9 I will take no bullock out of your house, nor he goats out of your 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 you: for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof.
50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay your vows unto the most High:
50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.
50:16 But unto the wicked God says, What have you to do to declare my statutes, or that you should take my covenant in your mouth?
50:17 Seeing you hate instruction, and casts my words behind you.
50:18 When you saw a thief, then you consented with him, and have been partaker with adulterers.
50:19 You give your mouth to evil, and your tongue frames deceit.
50:20 You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother's son.
50:21 These things have you done, and I kept silence; you thought that I was altogether such an one as yourself: but I will reprove you, and set them in order before your eyes.
50:22 Now consider this, all of you that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
50:23 Whoso offers praise glorifies me: and to him that orders his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God.
