50 oThe Mighty One, God the Lord,
pfrom the rising of the sun to its setting.
2 Out of Zion, qthe perfection of beauty,
rGod shines forth.
before him is a devouring tfire,
4 uHe calls to the heavens above
who made va covenant with me by sacrifice!”
6 wThe heavens declare his righteousness,
for xGod himself is judge! Selah
7 y“Hear, O my people, and I will speak;
zI am God, your God.
8 Not for your sacrifices ado I rebuke you;
11 bI know all the birds of the hills,
cfor the world and its fullness are mine.
and eperform your vows to the Most High,
15 and fcall upon me in the day of trouble;
17 iFor you hate discipline,
jand you cast my words behind you.
18 If you see a thief, kyou are pleased with him,
land you keep company with adulterers.
mand your tongue frames deceit.
21 These things you have done, and I nhave been silent;
you thought that I3 was one like yourself.
22 “Mark this, then, you who qforget God,
lest I tear you apart, and there be rnone to deliver!
23 The one who soffers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me;
to one who torders his way rightly
I will show the usalvation of God!”
