Chapter 50

1

 A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty God, [even] the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. 

2

 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined. 

3

 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him. 

4

 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people. 

5

 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. 

6

 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God [is] judge himself. Selah. 

7

 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I [am] God, [even] thy God. 

8

 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, [to have been] continually before me. 

9

 I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he goats out of thy folds. 

10

 For every beast of the forest [is] mine, [and] the cattle upon a thousand hills. 

11

 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field [are] mine. 

12

 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world [is] mine, and the fulness thereof. 

13

 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? 

14

 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High: 

15

 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 

16

 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or [that] thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 

17

 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. 

18

 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 

19

 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 

20

 Thou sittest [and] speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son. 

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. 

22

 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear [you] in pieces, and [there be] none to deliver. 

23

 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth [his] conversation [aright] will I shew the salvation of God.
