Psalm 50 (WEBP)

[1] The Mighty One, God, Yahweh, speaks, and calls the earth from sunrise to sunset.
[2] Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines out.
[3] Our God comes, and does not keep silent. A fire devours before him. It is very stormy around him.
[4] He calls to the heavens above, to the earth, that he may judge his people:
[5] “Gather my saints together to me, those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”
[6] The heavens shall declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge. Selah.
[7] “Hear, my people, and I will speak. Israel, I will testify against you. I am God, your God.
[8] I don’t rebuke you for your sacrifices. Your burnt offerings are continually before me.
[9] I have no need for a bull from your stall, nor male goats from your pens.
[10] For every animal of the forest is mine, and the livestock on a thousand hills.
[11] I know all the birds of the mountains. The wild animals of the field are mine.
[12] If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it.
[13] Will I eat the meat of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
[14] Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving. Pay your vows to the Most High.
[15] Call on me in the day of trouble. I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
[16] But to the wicked God says, “What right do you have to declare my statutes, that you have taken my covenant on your lips,
[17] since you hate instruction, and throw my words behind you?
[18] When you saw a thief, you consented with him, and have participated with adulterers.
[19] “You give your mouth to evil. Your tongue frames deceit.
[20] You sit and speak against your brother. You slander your own mother’s son.
[21] You have done these things, and I kept silent. You thought that I was just like you. I will rebuke you, and accuse you in front of your eyes.
[22] “Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you into pieces, and there be no one to deliver.
[23] Whoever offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies me, and prepares his way so that I will show God’s salvation to him.”

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 50 (YLT)

[1] 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!
