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.
