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.”

诗篇 50

真正的敬拜

亚萨的诗。

1从日出之地到日落之处,
大能的上帝耶和华召唤世人。
上帝的光辉从完美的锡安发出。
我们的上帝来临,
并非悄然无声,
祂前面有烈火燃烧,
周围有暴风怒吼。
祂召唤天地,
为要审判祂的子民。
祂说:“把我忠心的子民——那些借着献祭和我立约的人招聚到我这里。”
诸天宣扬上帝的公义,
因为祂是审判官。(细拉)

祂说:“我的子民啊,听我说!
以色列啊,我要指控你!
我是上帝,是你的上帝。
我责怪你,不是因为你的祭物,
也不是因为你经常献给我的燔祭。
我不需要你棚里的公牛和圈里的山羊,
10 因为林中的百兽是我的,
群山上的牲畜是我的。
11 山中的飞鸟和田野的动物都是我的。
12 就是我饿了,也不用告诉你,
因为世界和其中的一切都是我的。
13 难道我吃公牛的肉,
喝山羊的血吗?
14 你要向上帝献上感恩祭,
向至高者恪守诺言,
15 在患难中呼求我,
我必拯救你,你必尊崇我。”

16 但上帝对恶人说:
“你怎能背诵我的律法,
谈论我的约?
17 你憎恶我的管教,
把我的话抛在脑后。
18 你见了盗贼就与他同流合污,
又喜欢与淫乱的人交往。
19 你满口恶言,谎话连篇,
20 肆意毁谤自己的同胞兄弟。
21 我对你的所作所为默然不语,
你就以为我与你是同道。
现在我要责备你,
当面指出你的罪状。
22 忘记上帝的人啊,
你们要省察,
免得我毁灭你们,
那时谁也救不了你们。
23 向我献上感恩就是尊崇我,
我必拯救走正路的人。”
