A Psalm. Of Asaph.
1·God#GodHebrew: El Elohim-Jehovah, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. 2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God#GodHebrew: Elohim hath shined forth. 3Our God#GodHebrew: Elohim will come, and will not keep silence: fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him. 4He will call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people: 5Gather unto me my godly ones, those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice! 6And the heavens shall declare his righteousness; for God#GodHebrew: Elohim executeth judgment himself. Selah.
7Hear, my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify unto thee: I am God#GodHebrew: Elohim thy God#GodHebrew: Elohim 8I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices, or thy burnt-offerings, continually before me; 9I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he-goats out of thy folds: 10For every beast of the forest is mine, the cattle upon a thousand hills; 11I know all the fowl of the mountains, and the roaming creatures of the field are mine: 12If I were hungry, I would not tell thee; for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. 13Should I eat the flesh of bulls, and drink the blood of goats? 14Offer unto God#GodHebrew: Elohim thanksgiving, and perform thy vows unto the Most High; 15And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
16But unto the wicked God#GodHebrew: Elohim saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant into thy mouth, 17Seeing thou hast hated correction and hast cast my words behind thee? 18When thou sawest a thief, thou didst take pleasure in him, and thy portion was with adulterers; 19Thou lettest thy mouth loose to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit; 20Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother, thou revilest thine own mother's son: 21These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. 22Now consider this, ye that forget +God#GodHebrew: Eloah lest I tear in pieces, and there be no deliverer. 23Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me; and to him that ordereth his way will I shew the salvation of God#GodHebrew: Elohim.
