Psalm 50[a]

The Acceptable Sacrifice

The God of gods, the Lord,
    has spoken and summoned the earth
    from the rising of the sun to its setting.
From Zion, the perfection of beauty,
God shines forth.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 50 A covenant lawsuit stating that the sacrifice God really wants is the sacrifice of praise accompanied by genuine obedience (cf. Mi 6:1–8). It begins with a theophany and the summoning of the court (Ps 50:1–6). Then in direct address God explains what is required of the faithful (Ps 50:7–15), rebukes the hypocritical worshiper (Ps 50:16–21), and concludes with a threat and a promise (Ps 50:22–23; cf. Is 1:19–20).
