Chapter 49

1

 A psalm for Asaph. The God of gods, the Lord hath spoken: and he hath called the earth. From the rising of the sun, to the going down thereof: 


2

 out of Sion the loveliness of his beauty. 


3

 God shall come manifestly: our God shall come, and shall not keep silence. A fire shall burn before him: and a mighty tempest shall be round about him. 


4

 He shall call heaven from above, and the earth, to judge his people. 


5

 Gather ye together his saints to him: who set his covenant before sacrifices. 


6

 And the heavens shall declare his justice: for God is judge. 


7

 Hear, O my people, and I will speak: O Israel, and I will testify to thee: I am God, thy God. 


8

 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices: and thy burnt offerings are always in my sight. 


9

 I will not take calves out of thy house: nor he goats out of thy flocks. 


10

 For all the beasts of the woods are mine: the cattle on the hills, and the oxen. 


11

 I know all the fowls of the air: and with me is the beauty of the field. 


12

 If I should be hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. 


13

 Shall I eat the flesh of bullocks? or shall I drink the blood of goats? 


14

 Offer to God the sacrifice of praise: and pay thy vows to the most High. 


15

 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 


16

 But to the sinner God hath said: Why dost thou declare my justices, and take my covenant in thy mouth ? 


17

 Seeing thou hast hated discipline: and hast cast my words behind thee. 


18

 If thou didst see a thief thou didst run with him: and with adulterers thou hast been a partaker. 


19

 Thy mouth hath abounded with evil, and thy tongue framed deceits. 


20

 Sitting thou didst speak against thy brother, and didst lay a scandal against thy mother's son: 


21

 these things hast thou done, and I was silent. Thou thoughtest unjustly that I should be like to thee: but I will reprove thee, and set before thy face. 


22

 Understand these things, you that forget God; lest he snatch you away, and there be none to deliver you. 


23

 The sacrifice of praise shall glorify me: and there is the way by which I will shew him the salvation of God.
