Psalm 50

Psalm 50

A psalm of Asaph.

The Mighty One, God, the Lord,
    speaks and summons the earth
    from the rising of the sun to where it sets.
From Zion, perfect in beauty,
    God shines forth.
Our God comes
    and will not be silent;
a fire devours before him,
    and around him a tempest rages.
He summons the heavens above,
    and the earth, that he may judge his people:
“Gather to me this consecrated people,
    who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”
And the heavens proclaim his righteousness,
    for he is a God of justice.[a][b]

“Listen, my people, and I will speak;
    I will testify against you, Israel:
    I am God, your God.
I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices
    or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.
I have no need of a bull from your stall
    or of goats from your pens,
10 for every animal of the forest is mine,
    and the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know every bird in the mountains,
    and the insects in the fields are mine.
12 If I were hungry I would not tell you,
    for the world is mine, and all that is in it.
13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls
    or drink the blood of goats?

14 “Sacrifice thank offerings to God,
    fulfill your vows to the Most High,
15 and call on me in the day of trouble;
    I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”

16 But to the wicked person, God says:

“What right have you to recite my laws
    or take my covenant on your lips?
17 You hate my instruction
    and cast my words behind you.
18 When you see a thief, you join with him;
    you throw in your lot with adulterers.
19 You use your mouth for evil
    and harness your tongue to deceit.
20 You sit and testify against your brother
    and slander your own mother’s son.
21 When you did these things and I kept silent,
    you thought I was exactly[c] like you.
But I now arraign you
    and set my accusations before you.

22 “Consider this, you who forget God,
    or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:
23 Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me,
    and to the blameless[d] I will show my salvation.”

詩篇 50

真正的敬拜

亞薩的詩。

1從日出之地到日落之處,
大能的上帝耶和華召喚世人。
上帝的光輝從完美的錫安發出。
我們的上帝來臨,
並非悄然無聲,
祂前面有烈火燃燒,
周圍有暴風怒吼。
祂召喚天地,
為要審判祂的子民。
祂說:「把我忠心的子民——那些藉著獻祭和我立約的人招聚到我這裡。」
諸天宣揚上帝的公義,
因為祂是審判官。(細拉)

祂說:「我的子民啊,聽我說!
以色列啊,我要指控你!
我是上帝,是你的上帝。
我責怪你,不是因為你的祭物,
也不是因為你經常獻給我的燔祭。
我不需要你棚裡的公牛和圈裡的山羊,
10 因為林中的百獸是我的,
群山上的牲畜是我的。
11 山中的飛鳥和田野的動物都是我的。
12 就是我餓了,也不用告訴你,
因為世界和其中的一切都是我的。
13 難道我吃公牛的肉,
喝山羊的血嗎?
14 你要向上帝獻上感恩祭,
向至高者恪守諾言,
15 在患難中呼求我,
我必拯救你,你必尊崇我。」

16 但上帝對惡人說:
「你怎能背誦我的律法,
談論我的約?
17 你憎惡我的管教,
把我的話拋在腦後。
18 你見了盜賊就與他同流合污,
又喜歡與淫亂的人交往。
19 你滿口惡言,謊話連篇,
20 肆意譭謗自己的同胞兄弟。
21 我對你的所作所為默然不語,
你就以為我與你是同道。
現在我要責備你,
當面指出你的罪狀。
22 忘記上帝的人啊,
你們要省察,
免得我毀滅你們,
那時誰也救不了你們。
23 向我獻上感恩就是尊崇我,
我必拯救走正路的人。」
