Psalm 50
King James BibleEnglish Standard Version
1A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.1The Mighty One, God the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.
3Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.3Our God comes; he does not keep silence; before him is a devouring fire, around him a mighty tempest.
4He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.4He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people:
5Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.5“Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”
6And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.6The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge! Selah
7Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.7“Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, I will testify against you. I am God, your God.
8I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.8Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you; your burnt offerings are continually before me.
9I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.9I will not accept a bull from your house or goats from your folds.
10For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.10For every beast of the forest is mine, the cattle on a thousand hills.
11I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.11I know all the birds of the hills, and all that moves in the field is mine.
12If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.12“If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world and its fullness are mine.
13Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?13Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?
14Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:14Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and perform your vows to the Most High,
15And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.15and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”
16But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?16But to the wicked God says: “What right have you to recite my statutes or take my covenant on your lips?
17Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.17For you hate discipline, and you cast my words behind you.
18When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.18If you see a thief, you are pleased with him, and you keep company with adulterers.
19Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.19“You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit.
20Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.20You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother’s son.
21These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.21These things you have done, and I have been silent; you thought that I was one like yourself. But now I rebuke you and lay the charge before you.
22Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.22“Mark this, then, you who forget God, lest I tear you apart, and there be none to deliver!
23Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.23The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!”
