A Psalm ||of Asaph.
1 The amighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth
bFrom the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
2 Out of Zion, cthe perfection of beauty,
dGod hath shined.
eA fire shall devour before him,
And it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
4 fHe shall call to the heavens from above,
And to the earth, that he may judge his people.
5 Gather gmy saints together unto me;
hThose that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
6 And ithe heavens shall declare his righteousness:
For jGod is judge himself. Selah.
7 kHear, O my people, and I will speak;
O Israel, and kI will testify against thee:
lI am God, even thy God.
8 mI will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices
Or thy burnt offerings, to have been mmcontinually before me.
9 nI will take no bullock out of thy house,
Nor he goats out of thy ofolds.
And the cattle upon a thousand hills.
qFor the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
13 Will I eat the flesh of rbulls,
Or drink the blood of goats?
And upay thy vows unto the most High:
15 And vcall upon me in the day of trouble:
yWhat hast thou to do to declare my statutes,
Or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
17 zSeeing thou hatest instruction,
And acastest my words behind thee.
18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou bconsentedst with him,
And †hast been partaker with adulterers.
19 †Thou givest thy mouth to evil,
And cthy tongue frameth deceit.
20 Thou sittest and dspeakest against thy brother;
Thou slanderest thine own mother’s son.
21 These things hast thou done, and eI kept silence;
fThou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself:
22 Now consider this, ye that iforget God,
Lest I tear you in pieces, and there be knone to deliver.
And to him †that ordereth his conversation aright
Will I shew the salvation of God.
