A psalm of Asaph.

c‐ Heb. ’El ’Elohim YHWH. God, the LORD God ‐c Heb. ’El ’Elohim YHWH. spoke and summoned the world from east to west. 1 2From Zion, perfect in beauty, God appeared 3—let our God come and not fail to act! Devouring fire preceded Him; it stormed around Him fiercely. 4He summoned the heavens above, and the earth, for the trial of His people. 5“Bring in My devotees, who made a covenant with Me over sacrifice!” 6Then the heavens proclaimed His righteousness, for He is a God who judges. Selah. 7“Pay heed, My people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will arraign you. I am God, your God. 8I censure you not for your sacrifices, and your burnt offerings, made to Me daily; 9I claim no bull from your estate, no he‐goats from your pens. 10For Mine is every animal of the forest, the beasts on a‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. a thousand mountains. ‐a Meaning of Heb. uncertain. 11I know every bird of the mountains, the creatures of the field are subject to Me. 12Were I hungry, I would not tell you, for Mine is the world and all it holds. 13Do I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of he‐goats? 14Sacrifice a thank offering to God, and pay your vows to the Most High. 15Call upon Me in time of trouble; I will rescue you, and you shall honor Me.” 16And to the wicked, God said: “Who are you to recite My laws, and mouth the terms of My covenant, 17seeing that you spurn My discipline, and brush My words aside? 18When you see a thief, you fall in with him, and throw in your lot with adulterers; 19you devote your mouth to evil, and yoke your tongue to deceit; 20you are busy maligning your brother, defaming the son of your mother. 21If I failed to act when you did these things, you would fancy that I was like you; so I censure you and confront you with charges. 22Mark this, you who are unmindful of God, lest I tear you apart and no one save you. 23He who sacrifices a thank offering honors Me, a‐ Meaning of Heb. uncertain. and to him who improves his way ‐a Meaning of Heb. uncertain. I will show the salvation of God.”
