1[Psalm Of Asaph] The God of gods, Yahweh, is speaking, from east to west he summons the earth. 2From Zion, perfection of beauty, he shines forth; 3he is coming, our God, and wil not be silent. Devouring fire ahead of him, raging tempest around him, 4he summons the heavens from on high, and the earth to judge his people. 5'Gather to me my faithful, who sealed my covenant by sacrifice.' 6The heavens proclaim his saving justice, 'God himself is judge.'Pause 7'Listen, my people, I am speaking, Israel, I am giving evidence against you, I, God, your God. 8'It is not with your sacrifices that I find fault, those burnt offerings constantly before me; 9I will not accept any bul from your homes, nor a single goat from your folds. 10'For all forest creatures are mine already, the animals on the mountains in their thousands. 11I know every bird in the air, whatever moves in the fields is mine. 12'If I am hungry I shall not tel you, since the world and all it holds is mine. 13Am I to eat the flesh of bul s or drink the blood of goats? 14'Let thanksgiving be your sacrifice to God, fulfil the vows you make to the Most High; 15then if you call to me in time of trouble I wil rescue you and you wil honour me.' 16But to the wicked, God says: 'What right have you to recite my statutes, to take my covenant on yourlips, 17when you detest my teaching, and thrust my words behind you? 18'You make friends with a thief as soon as you see one, you feel at home with adulterers, 19your conversation is devoted to wickedness, and your tongue to inventing lies. 20'You sit there, slandering your own brother, you malign your own mother's son. 21You do this, and am I to say nothing? Do you think that I am really like you? I charge you, indict youto your face. 22'Think it out, you who forget God, or I wil tear you apart without hope of a rescuer. 23Honour to me is a sacrifice of thanksgiving; to the upright I wil show God's salvation.'
