Psalm 49; Psalm 50; Romans 1

1 (48-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for the sons of Core.> (48-2) Hear these things, all ye nations: give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world. 2 (48-3) All you that are earthborn, and you sons of men: both rich and poor together. 3 (48-4) My mouth shall speak wisdom: and the meditation of my heart understanding. 4 (48-5) I will incline my ear to a parable; I will open my proposition on the psaltery. 5 (48-6) Why shall I fear in the evil day? the iniquity of my heel shall encompass me. 6 (48-7) They that trust in their own strength, and glory in the multitude of their riches, 7 (48-8) No brother can redeem, nor shall man redeem: he shall not give to God his ransom, 8 (48-9) Nor the price of the redemption of his soul: and shall labour for ever, 9 (48-10) And shall still live unto the end. 10 (48-11) He shall not see destruction, when he shall see the wise dying: the senseless and the fool shall perish together: And they shall leave their riches to strangers: 11 (48-12) And their sepulchres shall be their houses for ever. Their dwelling places to all generations: they have called their lands by their names. 12 (48-13) And man when he was in honour did not understand; he is compared to senseless beasts, and is become like to them. 13 (48-14) This way of theirs is a stumblingblock to them: and afterwards they shall delight in their mouth. 14 (48-15) They are laid in hell like sheep: death shall feed upon them. And the just shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their help shall decay in hell from their glory. 15 (48-16) But God will redeem my soul from the hand of hell, when he shall receive me. 16 (48-17) Be not thou afraid, when a man shall be made rick, and when the glory of his house shall be increased. 17 (48-18) For when he shall die he shall take nothing away; nor shall his glory descend with him. 18 (48-19) For in his lifetime his soul will be blessed: and he will praise thee when thou shalt do well to him. 19 (48-20) He shall g in to the generations of his fathers: and he shall never see light. 20 (48-21) Man when he was in honour did not understand: he hath been compared to senseless beasts, and made like to them.
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.
1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God. 2 Which he had promised before, by his prophets, in the holy scriptures, 3 Concerning his Son, who was made to him of the seed of David, according to the flesh, 4 Who was predestinated the Son of God in power, according to the spirit of sanctification, by the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead: 5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith, in all nations, for his name: 6 Among whom are you also the called of Jesus Christ: 7 To all that are at Rome, the beloved of God, called to be saints. Grace to you and peace, from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 8 First, I give thanks to my God, through Jesus Christ, for you all: because your faith is spoken of in the whole world. 9 For God is my witness, whom I serve in my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make a commemoration of you: 10 Always in my prayers making request, if by any means now at length I may have a prosperous journey, by the will of God, to come unto you. 11 For I long to see you that I may impart unto you some spiritual grace, to strengthen you: 12 That is to say, that I may be comforted together in you by that which is common to us both, your faith and mine. 13 And I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that I have often purposed to come unto you (and have been hindered hitherto) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles. 14 To the Greeks and to the barbarians, to the wise and to the unwise, I am a debtor. 15 So (as much as is in me) I am ready to preach the gospel to you also that are at Rome. 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel. For it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth: to the Jew first and to the Greek. 17 For the justice of God is revealed therein, from faith unto faith, as it is written: The just man liveth by faith. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice: 19 Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made. His eternal power also and divinity: so that they are inexcusable. 21 Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God or given thanks: but became vain in their thoughts. And their foolish heart was darkened. 22 For, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. 23 And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts and of creeping things. 24 Wherefore, God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness: to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause, God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. 27 And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts, one towards another: men with men, working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. 28 And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient. 29 Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness: full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity: whisperers, 30 Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Foolish, dissolute: without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. 32 Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death: and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them.
