Psalm 50

God the Judge of the Righteous and the Wicked.

1 1The Mighty One, God, the LORD, has spoken, And summoned the earth 2from the rising of the sun to its setting.
2 Out of Zion, 3the perfection of beauty, God 4has shone forth.
3 May our God 5come and not keep silence; 6Fire devours before Him, And it is very 7tempestuous around Him.
4 He 8summons the heavens above *, And the earth, to judge His people:
5 "Gather My 9godly ones to Me, Those who have made a 10covenant with Me by 11sacrifice."
7 "14Hear, O My people, and I will speak; O Israel, I will testify against you; I am God, 15your God.
8 "I do 16not reprove you for your sacrifices, And your burnt offerings are continually before Me.
9 "I shall take no 17young bull out of your house Nor male goats out of your folds.
10 "For 18every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills.
11 "I know every 19bird of the mountains, And everything that moves in the field is Mine.
12 "If I were hungry I would not tell you, For the 20world is Mine, and all it contains.
13 "Shall I eat the flesh of 21bulls Or drink the blood of male goats?
14 "Offer to God 22a sacrifice of thanksgiving And 23pay your vows to the Most High;
15 24Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall 25rescue you, and you will 26honor Me."
16 But to the wicked God says, "What right have you to tell of My statutes And to take 27My covenant in your mouth?
17 "For you 28hate discipline, And you 29cast My words behind you.
18 "When you see a thief, you 30are pleased with him, And you 31associate with adulterers.
19 "You 32let your mouth loose in evil And your 33tongue frames deceit.
20 "You sit and 34speak against your brother; You slander * your own mother's son.
21 "These things you have done and 35I kept silence; You thought that I was just like you; I will 36reprove you and state the case in order before your eyes.
22 "Now consider this, you who 37forget God, Or I will 38tear you in pieces, and there will be none to deliver.
23 "He who 39offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me; And to him who 40orders his way aright I shall 41show the salvation of God."
