Psalm 50

The Lord our God, the Mighty One, has spoken :
 and summoned the earth, from the rising of the sun
   to its setting in the west.
From Zion, perfect in beauty :
 God has shone out in glory.
Our God is coming, he will not keep silent :
 before him is devouring fire, and tempest whirls about him.
He calls to the heavens above :
 and to the earth, so he may judge his people.
‘Gather to me my faithful ones :
 those who by sacrifice made a covenant with me.’
The heavens shall proclaim his righteousness :
 for God himself is judge.
‘Listen my people, and I will speak :
 O Israel, I am God your God, and I will give my testimony.
‘It is not for your sacrifices that I reprove you :
 for your burnt-offerings are always before me.
‘I will take no bull from your farms :
 or he-goat from your pens.
‘For all the beasts of the forest belong to me :
 and so do the cattle upon the mountains.
‘I know all the birds of the air :
 and the grasshoppers of the field are in my sight.
‘If I were hungry, I would not tell you :
 for the whole world is mine, and all that is in it.
‘Do I eat the flesh of bulls :
 or drink the blood of goats?
‘Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving :
 and pay your vows to the Most High.
‘Call upon me in the day of trouble :
 I will bring you out, and you shall glorify me.’
But God says to the wicked :
 ‘What have you to do with reciting my laws,
   or taking my covenant on your lips,
‘Seeing you loathe discipline :
 and have tossed my words behind you?
‘When you saw a thief, you went along with him :
 and you threw in your lot with adulterers.
‘You have loosed your mouth in evil :
 and your tongue strings lies together.
‘You sit and speak against your brother :
 and slander your own mother’s son.
‘These things you have done, and I held my tongue :
 and you thought I was just such another as yourself.
‘But I will convict you :
 and set before your eyes what you have done.
‘O consider this, you who forget God :
 lest I tear you in pieces, and there be no one to save you.
‘He honours me who brings sacrifice of thanksgiving :
 and to him who keeps to my way
   I will show the salvation of God.’
