Tehillim (Psalms) 50
1Ěl Elohim יהוה shall speak, And He shall call the earth From the rising of the sun to its going down.
2From Tsiyon, the perfection of loveliness, Elohim shall shine forth.
3Our Elohim comes, and is not silent – A fire consumes before Him, And it shall be very stormy all around Him.
4He calls to the heavens from above, And to the earth, to rightly rule His people:
5Gather My lovingly-committed ones together to Me, Those who have made a covenant with Me by slaughtering.
6Then the heavens declared His righteousness, For Elohim Himself is Judge. Selah.
7“Hear, O My people, and I speak, O Yisra’ĕl, and I witness against you: I am Elohim, your Elohim!
8I do not reprove you for your slaughterings, And your ascending offerings are continually before Me.”
9“I do not take a bull from your house, Nor goats out of your pens.
10For every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills.”
11“I know all the birds of the mountains, And all moving in My field are Mine.
12If I were hungry, I would not speak to you; For the world is Mine, and all that fills it.”
13“Do I eat the flesh of bulls, Or drink the blood of goats?
14Slaughter thanksgiving to Elohim, And pay your vows to the Most High.”
15And call upon Me in the day of distress – Let Me rescue you, and you esteem Me.
16But to the wrong Elohim said, “What right have you to recite My laws, Or take My covenant in your mouth,
17“While you hated instruction And cast My Words behind you?
18When you saw a thief, you were pleased with him, And you take part with adulterers.”
19“You let your mouth loose to evil, And your tongue frames deceit.
20You sit, speak against your brother; You slander your own mother’s son.”
21“You have done this, and I kept silent; You have thought that I was altogether like you – I rebuke you, and set it in order before your eyes.
22Understand this please, you who forget Eloah, Lest I tear you in pieces, With no one to deliver:"
23Whoever slaughters praise esteems Me; And to him who prepares a way, I show the deliverance of Elohim.
