PS 49:1  A psalm for Asaph. The God of gods, the Lord hath spoken: and he hath called the earth. From the rising of the sun, to the going down thereof:

PS 49:2  out of Sion the loveliness of his beauty.

PS 49:3  God shall come manifestly: our God shall come, and shall not keep silence. A fire shall burn before him: and a mighty tempest shall be round about him.

PS 49:4  He shall call heaven from above, and the earth, to judge his people.

PS 49:5  Gather ye together his saints to him: who set his covenant before sacrifices.

PS 49:6  And the heavens shall declare his justice: for God is judge.

PS 49:7  Hear, O my people, and I will speak: O Israel, and I will testify to thee: I am God, thy God.

PS 49:8  I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices: and thy burnt offerings are always in my sight.

PS 49:9  I will not take calves out of thy house: nor he goats out of thy flocks.

PS 49:10  For all the beasts of the woods are mine: the cattle on the hills, and the oxen.

PS 49:11  I know all the fowls of the air: and with me is the beauty of the field.

PS 49:12  If I should be hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

PS 49:13  Shall I eat the flesh of bullocks? or shall I drink the blood of goats?

PS 49:14  Offer to God the sacrifice of praise: and pay thy vows to the most High.

PS 49:15  And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

PS 49:16  But to the sinner God hath said: Why dost thou declare my justices, and take my covenant in thy mouth ?

PS 49:17  Seeing thou hast hated discipline: and hast cast my words behind thee.

PS 49:18  If thou didst see a thief thou didst run with him: and with adulterers thou hast been a partaker.

PS 49:19  Thy mouth hath abounded with evil, and thy tongue framed deceits.

PS 49:20  Sitting thou didst speak against thy brother, and didst lay a scandal against thy mother’s son:

PS 49:21  these things hast thou done, and I was silent. Thou thoughtest unjustly that I should be like to thee: but I will reprove thee, and set before thy face.

PS 49:22  Understand these things, you that forget God; lest he snatch you away, and there be none to deliver you.

PS 49:23  The sacrifice of praise shall glorify me: and there is the way by which I will shew him the salvation of God.
