1: (A Psalm. Of Asaph.) God, Elohim-Jehovah, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. 2: Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined forth. 3: Our God will come, and will not keep silence: fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him. 4: He will call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people: 5: Gather unto me my godly ones, those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice! 6: And the heavens shall declare his righteousness; for God executeth judgment himself. Selah. 7: Hear, my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify unto thee: I am God, thy God. 8: I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices, or thy burnt-offerings, continually before me; 9: I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he-goats out of thy folds: 10: For every beast of the forest is mine, the cattle upon a thousand hills; 11: I know all the fowl of the mountains, and the roaming creatures of the field are mine: 12: If I were hungry, I would not tell thee; for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. 13: Should I eat the flesh of bulls, and drink the blood of goats? 14: Offer unto God thanksgiving, and perform thy vows unto the Most High; 15: And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 16: But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant into thy mouth, 17: Seeing thou hast hated correction and hast cast my words behind thee? 18: When thou sawest a thief, thou didst take pleasure in him, and thy portion was with adulterers; 19: Thou lettest thy mouth loose to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit; 20: Thou sittest [and] speakest against thy brother, thou revilest thine own mother's son: 21: These [things] hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether as thyself: [but] I will reprove thee, and set [them] in order before thine eyes. 22: Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear in pieces, and there be no deliverer. 23: Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me; and to him that ordereth [his] way will I shew the salvation of God.
