50:1 A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty God, [even] the LORD, hath
spoken, and called the earth from the rising to the setting of
50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire
shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous
50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth,
that he may judge his people.
50:5 Gather my saints together to me; those that have made a
covenant with me by sacrifice.
50:6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God
[is] judge himself. Selah.
50:7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will
testify against thee: I [am] God, [even] thy God.
50:8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy
burnt-offerings, [to have been] continually before me.
50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he-goats out
of thy folds.
50:10 For every beast of the forest [is] mine, [and] the cattle

50:16 But to the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to
declare my statutes, or [that] thou shouldest take my covenant
in thy mouth?
50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words
50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him,
and hast been partaker with adulterers.
50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth
50:20 Thou sittest [and] speakest against thy brother; thou
slanderest thy own mother's son.
50:21 These [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
50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear [you]
in pieces, and [there be] none to deliver.
50:23 Whoever offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that
ordereth [his] deportment [aright] will I show the salvation of
