Psalms 50 (asv)

Psalms 50 (asv)

A Psalm of Asaph.

50:1The Mighty One, God, Jehovah, hath spoken,

And called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.

50:2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,

God hath shined forth.

50:3Our God cometh, and doth not keep silence:

A fire devoureth before him,

And it is very tempestuous round about him.

50:4He calleth to the heavens above,

And to the earth, that he may judge his people:

50:5Gather my saints together unto me,

Those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

50:6And the heavens shall declare his righteousness;

For God is judge himself.

Selah

50:7Hear, O my people, and I will speak;

O Israel, and I will testify unto thee:

I am God, even thy God.

50:8I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices;

And thy burnt-offerings are continually before me.

50:9I will take no bullock out of thy house,

Nor he-goats out of thy folds.

50:10For every beast of the forest is mine,

And the cattle upon a thousand hills.

50:11I know all the birds of the mountains;

And the wild beasts of the field are mine.

50:12If I were hungry, I would not tell thee;

For the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

50:13Will I eat the flesh of bulls,

Or drink the blood of goats?

50:14Offer unto God the sacrifice of thanksgiving;

And pay thy vows unto the Most High:

50:15And call upon me in the day of trouble;

I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

50:16But unto the wicked God saith,

What hast thou to do to declare my statutes,

And that thou hast taken my covenant in thy mouth,

50:17Seeing thou hatest instruction,

And castest my words behind thee?

50:18When thou sawest a thief, thou consentedst with him,

And hast been partaker with adulterers.

50:19Thou givest thy mouth to evil,

And thy tongue frameth deceit.

50:20Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother;

Thou slanderest thine own mother's son.

50:21These things hast thou done, and I kept silence;

Thou thoughtest that I was altogether such a one as thyself:

But I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

50:22Now consider this, ye that forget God,

Lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver:

50:23Whoso offereth the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifieth me;

And to him that ordereth his way aright

Will I show the salvation of God.
