Psalms 50

God the Righteous Judge
A Psalm of Asaph.
1The #Is. 9:6Mighty One, God the Lord,
Has spoken and called the earth
From the rising of the sun to its going down.
2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,
#Deut. 33:2; Ps. 80:1God will shine forth.
3Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent;
#Lev. 10:2; Num. 16:35; (Ps. 97:3)A fire shall devour before Him,
And it shall be very tempestuous all around Him.
4#Deut. 4:26; 31:28; 32:1; Is. 1:2He shall call to the heavens from above,
And to the earth, that He may judge His people:
5“Gather #Deut. 33:3My saints together to Me,
#Ex. 24:7Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.”
6Let the #(Ps. 97:6)heavens declare His righteousness,
For #Ps. 75:7God Himself is Judge.
7“Hear, O My people, and I will speak,
O Israel, and I will testify against you;
#Ex. 20:2I am God, your God!
8#Jer. 7:22I will not rebuke you #Is. 1:11; (Hos. 6:6)for your sacrifices
Or your burnt offerings,
Which are continually before Me.
9#Ps. 69:31I will not take a bull from your house,
Nor goats out of your folds.
10For every beast of the forest is Mine,
And the cattle on a thousand hills.
11I know all the birds of the mountains,
And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.
12“If I were hungry, I would not tell you;
#Ex. 19:5; (Deut. 10:14; Job 41:11); 1 Cor. 10:26For the world is Mine, and all its fullness.
13#(Ps. 51:15–17)Will I eat the flesh of bulls,
Or drink the blood of goats?
14#Hos. 14:2; Heb. 13:15Offer to God thanksgiving,
And #Num. 30:2; Deut. 23:21pay your vows to the Most High.
15#Job 22:27; (Zech. 13:9)Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”
16But to the wicked God says:
“What right have you to declare My statutes,
Or take My covenant in your mouth,
17#Neh. 9:26; Rom. 2:21Seeing you hate instruction
And cast My words behind you?
18When you saw a thief, you #(Rom. 1:32)consented with him,
And have been a #1 Tim. 5:22partaker with adulterers.
19You give your mouth to evil,
And #Ps. 52:2your tongue frames deceit.
20You sit and speak against your brother;
You slander your own mother’s son.
21These things you have done, and I kept silent;
#(Rom. 2:4)You thought that I was altogether like you;
But I will rebuke you,
And #(Ps. 90:8)set them in order before your eyes.
22“Now consider this, you who #(Job 8:13)forget God,
Lest I tear you in pieces,
And there be none to deliver:
23Whoever offers praise glorifies Me;
And #Gal. 6:16to him who orders his conduct aright
I will show the salvation of God.”
