Psalm 50 – A Melody of Asaph

Psalm 50 – A Melody of Asaph2015-08-01T10:00:43+00:00

1 God of gods 2, Jehovah spoke and continually calls the earth from the rising of the sun until its entrance. From Zion the completeness of beauty, Elohim has caused to shine. Let our Elohim comes and let Him not be silent, a fire before His face devouring and it will be very turbulent around Him. He calls to the heavens from above, and to the earth to judge its people. Gather to Me My pious, the ones I cut a Covenant with upon a sacrifice. The heavens will be caused to declare His righteousness because Elohim Himself is Judge.  Selah

Hear my people, and I will continue to speak, Israel, and I will be caused to bear witness against you. I am God, your God. I will not reprove you upon your sacrifices and your burn offerings are continually in front of Me. I will not take a young bull from your house, nor from the fold or your male goats because all the beast of the forest are to Me; the cattle on a thousand hills. I know all the fowl of the mountains and the moving things of the fields are with me. If I were hunger I would not say it to you because towards Me is the inhabited world and its fullness. Will I eat the flesh of the mighty and drink the blood of male goats? A sacrifice of thanksgiving to Elohim and repay to the Most High your vow. And call upon Me in the day of distress. I will draw you out and you will honor Me.

Unto the wicked Elohim says, “ What is it to you to count My statutes, or to lift up My covenant upon your mouth? You, on your part, hate discipline and you cast My words behind you. If you see a thief then you are pleased with him. And you associate with adulterers. Your mouth, you send with evil and your tongue binds deceit. You sit speaking against your brother; you fault against your mother’s son. These things you have done but I caused to remain silent. You likened Me to become like as you, but I will reprove you and I will set in order before your eyes. I pray, to discern this the ones forgetting God lest I devour and there is no one to deliver. The one offering a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me and sets his way, I will cause him to be seen in a salvation of Elohim.”

1The Author of this Psalm is Asaph, a man who taught singing and the playing of instruments mentioned in 1 Chronicles 25:1.

2 Some of the English translations add the words “Mighty One”; however, this does not exist in the original Hebrew. He is called the God of gods and then His name is stated, “Jehovah”.
