Psalm 50:16-23 NIV

Psalm 50:16-23

But to the wicked person, God says:

“What right have you to recite my laws

or take my covenant on your lips?

You hate my instruction

and cast my words behind you.

When you see a thief, you join with him;

you throw in your lot with adulterers.

You use your mouth for evil

and harness your tongue to deceit.

You sit and testify against your brother

and slander your own mother’s son.

When you did these things and I kept silent,

you thought I was exactly50:21 Or thought the ‘I am’ was like you.

But I now arraign you

and set my accusations before you.

“Consider this, you who forget God,

or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:

Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me,

and to the blameless50:23 Probable reading of the original Hebrew text; the meaning of the Masoretic Text for this phrase is uncertain. I will show my salvation.”
