Salme 50

Sand tilbedelse

1En sang af Asaf.

Herren, den almægtige Gud,
    kalder menneskene sammen fra alle verdenshjørner.
Hans herlighed stråler omkring ham,
    han kommer fra Zion, det skønneste sted.
Vor Gud er på vej,
    og det sker ikke lydløst.
Foran ham går en fortærende ild,
    omkring ham raser et voldsomt uvejr.
Himmel og jord er hans vidner,
    når han sætter sig for at dømme sit folk.
„Lad hele mit folk komme sammen,
    dem, som med ofre har bekræftet min pagt.”
Gud er en retfærdig dommer,
    det bevidner den himmelske verden.

„Mit folk, hør hvad jeg har at sige.
    Israel, jeg anklager jer, for jeg er jeres Gud.
Jeg bebrejder jer ikke alle jeres ofre,
    som I til stadighed bringer til mit alter.
Men det er ikke tyre fra jeres huse
    og bukke fra jeres stalde, jeg har brug for.

10 Jeg ejer alle de dyr, der lever i skoven,
    og alle dem, der græsser på de tusindvis af høje.
11 Jeg har tal på alle bjergenes fugle,
    selv jordens insekter er mine.
12 Hvis jeg blev sulten,
    ville jeg ikke bede jer om noget,
for jorden er min med alt,
    hvad den indeholder.
13 Jeg spiser ikke kødet fra de tyre, I ofrer,
    jeg drikker ikke blodet fra de geder, I giver mig.
14 Kom hellere med en lovsang som takoffer,
    og opfyld jeres løfter til den almægtige Gud.
15 Råb til mig, når I har problemer,
    så jeg kan gribe ind, og I kan give mig ære.

16 Men til de ugudelige siger jeg:
Hvorfor opremser I mine bud
    og påstår, at I overholder min pagt?
17 I nægter jo at lade jer vejlede
    og blæser på, hvad jeg siger.
18 Når I ser en tyv, slutter I jer til ham.
    I godtager dem, der lever i utroskab.
19 Jeres mund udspyr onde ord,
    jeres tale er løgn og bedrag.
20 I sidder og bagtaler jeres egen familie
    og lægger onde planer imod dem.
21 Når I ter jer sådan, skal jeg så bare se på?
    I tror måske, jeg er ligeglad?
Nej, nu kan det være nok, nu bliver I straffet,
    jeg er nødt til at stille jer for retten.
22 Tænk over mine ord, I, der har glemt jeres Gud,
    ellers vil jeg gøre det af med jer,
        og der er intet, der kan redde jer.
23 Lovsang er et offer, som ærer mig.
    Jeg vil frelse alle, der adlyder mig.”

Psalm 50

God the Judge of the Righteous and the Wicked.

A Psalm of [a]Asaph.

1The Mighty One, God, the Lord, has spoken,
And summoned the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,
God has shone forth.
May our God come and not keep silence;
Fire devours before Him,
And it is very tempestuous around Him.
He summons the heavens above,
And the earth, to judge His people:
“Gather My godly ones to Me,
Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.”
And the heavens declare His righteousness,
For God Himself is judge. [b]Selah.

“Hear, O My people, and I will speak;
O Israel, I will testify [c]against you;
I am God, your God.
“I do not reprove you for your sacrifices,
And your burnt offerings are continually before Me.
“I shall take no young bull out of your house
Nor male goats out of your folds.
10 “For every beast of the forest is Mine,
The cattle on a thousand hills.
11 “I know every bird of the mountains,
And everything that moves in the field is [d]Mine.
12 “If I were hungry I would not tell you,
For the world is Mine, and [e]all it contains.
13 “Shall I eat the flesh of [f]bulls
Or drink the blood of male goats?
14 “Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving
And pay your vows to the Most High;
15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.”

16 But to the wicked God says,
“What right have you to tell of My statutes
And to take My covenant in your mouth?
17 “For you hate discipline,
And you cast My words behind you.
18 “When you see a thief, you [g]are pleased with him,
And [h]you associate with adulterers.
19 “You [i]let your mouth loose in evil
And your tongue frames deceit.
20 “You sit and speak against your brother;
You slander your own mother’s son.
21 “These things you have done and I kept silence;
You thought that I was just like you;
I will reprove you and state the case in order before your eyes.

22 “Now consider this, you who forget God,
Or I will tear you in pieces, and there will be none to deliver.
23 “He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me;
And to him who [j]orders his way aright
I shall show the salvation of God.”
