Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 50 Deus deorum

The Lord, even the Most Mighty God, hath spoken, and called the world, from the rising up of the sun unto the going down thereof

Out of Sion hath God appeared in perfect beauty

Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence;
there shall go before him a consuming fire, and a mighty tempest shall be stirred up round about him

He shall call the heaven from above, and the earth, that he may judge his people

Gather my saints together unto me, those that have made a covenant with me with sacrifice

And the heavens shall declare his righteousness;
for God is Judge himself

Hear, O my people, and I will speak;
I myself will testify against thee, O Israel;
for I am God, even thy God

I will not reprove thee because of thy sacrifices or for thy burnt-offerings, because they were not always before me

I will take no bullock out of thine house, nor he-goats out of thy folds

For all the beasts of the forest are mine, and so are the cattle upon a thousand hills

I know all the fowls upon the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are in my sight

If I be hungry, I will not tell thee;
for the whole world is mine, and all that is therein

Thinkest thou that I will eat bulls’ flesh, and drink the blood of goats? Offer unto God thanksgiving, and pay thy vows unto the Most Highest

And call upon me in the time of trouble;
so will I hear thee, and thou shalt praise me

But unto the ungodly said God, Why dost thou preach my laws, and takest my covenant in thy mouth, whereas thou hatest to be reformed, and hast cast my words behind thee? When thou sawest a thief, thou consentedst unto him, and hast been partaker with the adulterers

Thou hast let thy mouth speak wickedness, and with thy tongue thou hast set forth deceit

Thou sattest and spakest against thy brother, yea, and hast slandered thine own mother’s son

These things hast thou done, and I held my tongue, and thou thoughtest wickedly that I am even such a one as thyself;
but I will reprove thee, and set before thee the things that thou hast done

O consider this, ye that forget God, lest I pluck you away, and there be none to deliver you

Whoso offereth me thanks and praise, he honoureth me;
and to him that ordereth his conversation right, will I show the salvation of God
