Psalm 50:7–15

“Listen, my people, and I will speak;

I will testify against you, Israel.

I am God, your God.g

I do not rebuke you for your sacrifices

or for your burnt offerings,

which are continually before me.h

I will not take a bull from your household

or male goats from your pens,i

10 for every animal of the forest is mine,

the cattle on a thousand hills.

11 I know every bird of the mountains,

and the creatures of the field are mine.j

12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you,

for the world and everything in it is mine.k

13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls

or drink the blood of goats?l

14 Offer a thanksgiving sacrifice to God,m

and pay your vows to the Most High.n

15 Call on me in a day of trouble;

I will rescue you, and you will honor me.”o
