Psalm 50 RHE

1 (49-1) <A psalm for Asaph.> The God of gods, the Lord hath spoken: and he hath called the earth. From the rising of the sun, to the going down thereof:
2 (49-2) Out of Sion the loveliness of his beauty.
3 (49-3) God shall come manifestly: our God shall come, and shall not keep silence. A fire shall burn before him: and a mighty tempest shall be round about him.
4 (49-4) He shall call heaven from above, and the earth, to judge his people.
5 (49-5) Gather ye together his saints to him: who set his covenant before sacrifices.
6 (49-6) And the heavens shall declare his justice: for God is judge.
7 (49-7) Hear, O my people, and I will speak: O Israel, and I will testify to thee: I am God, thy God.
8 (49-8) I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices: and thy burnt offerings are always in my sight.
9 (49-9) I will not take calves out of thy house: nor he goats out of thy flocks.
10 (49-10) For all the beasts of the woods are mine: the cattle on the hills, and the oxen.
11 (49-11) I know all the fowls of the air: and with me is the beauty of the field.
12 (49-12) If I should be hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
13 (49-13) Shall I eat the flesh of bullocks? or shall I drink the blood of goats?
14 (49-14) Offer to God the sacrifice of praise: and pay thy vows to the most High.
15 (49-15) And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
16 (49-16) But to the sinner God hath said: Why dost thou declare my justices, and take my covenant in thy mouth?
17 (49-17) Seeing thou hast hated discipline: and hast cast my words behind thee.
18 (49-18) If thou didst see a thief thou didst run with him: and with adulterers thou hast been a partaker.
19 (49-19) Thy mouth hath abounded with evil, and thy tongue framed deceits.
20 (49-20) Sitting thou didst speak against thy brother, and didst lay a scandal against thy mother’s son:
21 (49-21) These things hast thou done, and I was silent. Thou thoughtest unjustly that I should be like to thee: but I will reprove thee, and set before thy face.
22 (49-22) Understand these things, you that forget God; lest he snatch you away, and there be none to deliver you.
23 (49-23) The sacrifice of praise shall glorify me: and there is the way by which I will shew him the salvation of God.
