Psalms 50 (asv)
God hath shined forth.
A fire devoureth before him,
And it is very tempestuous round about him.
50:4He calleth to the heavens above,
50:5Gather my saints together unto me,
50:6And the heavens shall declare his righteousness;
50:7Hear, O my people, and I will speak;
O Israel, and I will testify unto thee:
50:8I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices;
And thy burnt-offerings are continually before me.
Nor he-goats out of thy folds.
50:10For every beast of the forest is mine,
And the cattle upon a thousand hills.
50:11I know all the birds of the mountains;
And the wild beasts of the field are mine.
50:12If I were hungry, I would not tell thee;
For the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
Or drink the blood of goats?
And pay thy vows unto the Most High:
I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
50:16But unto the wicked God saith,
What hast thou to do to declare my statutes,
And that thou hast taken my covenant in thy mouth,
50:17Seeing thou hatest instruction,
And castest my words behind thee?
50:18When thou sawest a thief, thou consentedst with him,
And hast been partaker with adulterers.
50:19Thou givest thy mouth to evil,
And thy tongue frameth deceit.
50:20Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother;
Thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
Thou thoughtest that I was altogether such a one as thyself:
But I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
50:22Now consider this, ye that forget God,
Lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver:
And to him that ordereth his way aright
