1: A Psalm of Asaph. The God of gods -- Jehovah -- hath spoken, And He calleth to the earth From the rising of the sun unto its going in. 2: From Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shone. 3: Our God cometh, and is not silent, Fire before Him doth devour, And round about him it hath been very tempestuous. 4: He doth call unto the heavens from above, And unto the earth, to judge His people. 5: Gather ye to Me My saints, Making covenant with Me over a sacrifice. 6: And the heavens declare His righteousness, For God Himself [is] judge. Selah. 7: Hear, O My people, and I speak, O Israel, and I testify against thee, God, thy God [am] I. 8: Not for thy sacrifices do I reprove thee, Yea, thy burnt-offerings [Are] before Me continually. 9: I take not from thy house a bullock, From thy folds he goats. 10: For Mine [is] every beast of the forest, The cattle on the hills of oxen. 11: I have known every fowl of the mountains, And the wild beast of the field [is] with Me. 12: If I am hungry I tell not to thee, For Mine [is] the world and its fulness. 13: Do I eat the flesh of bulls, And drink the blood of he-goats? 14: Sacrifice to God confession, And complete to the Most High thy vows. 15: And call Me in a day of adversity, I deliver thee, and thou honourest Me. 16: And to the wicked hath God said: What to thee -- to recount My statutes? That thou liftest up My covenant on thy mouth? 17: Yea, thou hast hated instruction, And dost cast My words behind thee. 18: If thou hast seen a thief, Then thou art pleased with him, And with adulterers [is] thy portion. 19: Thy mouth thou hast sent forth with evil, And thy tongue joineth deceit together, 20: Thou sittest, against thy brother thou speakest, Against a son of thy mother givest slander. 21: These thou didst, and I kept silent, Thou hast thought that I am like thee, I reprove thee, and set in array before thine eyes. 22: Understand this, I pray you, Ye who are forgetting God, Lest I tear, and there is no deliverer. 23: He who is sacrificing praise honoureth Me, As to him who maketh a way, I cause him to look on the salvation of God!
