50:1 A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty God, [even] the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising to the setting of the sun. 50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined. 50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous around 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 to 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 thee: I [am] God, [even] thy God. 50:8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt-offerings, [to have been] continually before me. 50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he-goats out of thy 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 thee: 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 to God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows to the Most High: 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 50:16 But to the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or [that] thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. 50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 50:20 Thou sittest [and] speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thy own mother's son. 50:21 These [things] hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether [such an one] as thyself: [but] I will reprove thee, and set [them] in order before thine eyes. 50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear [you] in pieces, and [there be] none to deliver. 50:23 Whoever offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth [his] deportment [aright] will I show the salvation of God.
