  • 1The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
  • 2Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
  • 3Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
  • 4He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
  • 5Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
  • 6And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
  • 7Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
  • 8I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
  • 9I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
  • 10For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
  • 11I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
  • 12If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
  • 13Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
  • 14Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
  • 15And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
  • 16But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
  • 17Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.
  • 18When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
  • 19Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
  • 20Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
  • 21These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
  • 22Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
  • 23Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
