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,
    fulfil your vows to the Most High,
15 and call on me in the day of trouble;
    I will deliver you, and you will honour 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 honour me,
    and to the blameless[d] I will show my salvation.’

1Otumfoɔ Awurade Nyankopɔn kasa; ɔkasa kyerɛ asase nyinaa fi apuei kosi atɔe.

Onyankopɔn hyerɛn fi Sion, kurow a ne fɛ so nni. Yɛn Nyankopɔn reba nanso ɔremma komm; ogya frama di n’anim. Ahum dennen atwa ne ho ahyia. Ɔfrɛ soro ne asase adansefo sɛ wɔmmɛhwɛ sɛ ɔrebu ne nkurɔfo atɛn. Ɔka se, “Boaboa me gyidifo ano brɛ me; wɔn a wɔnam afɔrebɔ so ne me yɛɛ apam no.” Ɔsoro pae mu ka se, Onyankopɔn yɛ ɔtreneeni, na ɔno ankasa yɛ ɔtemmufo.

Muntie, me nkurɔfo; mɛkasa. Medi adanse atia wo, Israel. Mene Onyankopɔn, mo Nyankopɔn no. Ɛnyɛ mo afɔrebɔ no anaa ɔhyew afɔre a mobɔ ma me daa no nti na mereka mo anim. Merenhwehwɛ anantwinini mfi mo mfuw mu. Saa ara na merenhwehwɛ mmirekyi mfi mo nguankuw mu. 10 Kwae mu mmoa nyinaa yɛ me de. Anantwi a wɔwɔ mmepɔw mpempem so nso saa ara. 11 Wuram nnomaa nyinaa ne nneɛma a nkwa wɔ mu a wɔwɔ mfum nso yɛ me de. 12 “Sɛ ɔkɔm dee me a, anka merenka nkyerɛ mo; efisɛ, wiase ne nea ɛwɔ mu nyinaa yɛ me de. 13 Mewe anantwinini, nom mmirekyi mogya anaa? 14 Momma aseda a moda Onyankopɔn no nyɛ afɔre a mobɔ ma no, na momfa biribiara a mohyɛ Otumfoɔ no ho bɔ no mma no. 15 Amane mu, momfrɛ me na megye mo na mobɛkamfo me.”

16 Nanso Onyankopɔn bisa nnebɔneyɛfo no se, “Adɛn nti na moka me mmara? Adɛn nti na moka m’apam ho asɛm? 17 Mompɛ sɛ mɛteɛteɛ mo so. Mopoo me mmara. 18 Owifo biara a mubehu no no, mofa no yɔnko na mo ne awaresɛefo bɔ. 19 Daa musiesie mo ho sɛ mobɛka bɔne; monkyɛ atorotwa ho. 20 Moasiesie mo ho sɛ moka asɛm to mo nuanom so na mopɛ mfomso tia wɔn. 21 Moayɛ eyinom nyinaa; nanso manka hwee, enti mususuw sɛ mete sɛ mo.
