Psalm 50. Deus deorum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Tenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. 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.
  2. Out of Sion hath God appeared *
    in perfect beauty.
  3. 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.
  4. He shall call the heaven from above, *
    and the earth, that he may judge his people.
  5. Gather my saints together unto me; *
    those that have made a covenant with me with sacrifice.
  6. And the heavens shall declare his righteousness; *
    for God is Judge himself.
  7. Hear, O my people, and I will speak; *
    I myself will testify against thee, O Israel; for I am God, even thy God.
  8. I will not reprove thee because of thy sacrifices; *
    as for thy burnt-offerings, they are alway before me.
  9. I will take no bullock out of thine house, *
    nor he-goats out of thy folds.
  10. For all the beasts of the forest are mine, *
    and so are the cattle upon a thousand hills.
  11. I know all the fowls upon the mountains, *
    and the wild beasts of the field are in my sight.
  12. If I be hungry, I will not tell thee; *
    for the whole world is mine, and all that is therein.
  13. Thinkest thou that I will eat bulls' flesh, *
    and drink the blood of goats?
  14. Offer unto God thanksgiving, *
    and pay thy vows unto the Most Highest.
  15. And call upon me in the time of trouble; *
    so will I hear thee, and thou shalt praise me.
  16. But unto the ungodly saith God, *
    Why dost thou preach my laws, and takest my covenant in thy mouth;
  17. Whereas thou hatest to be reformed, *
    and hast cast my words behind thee?
  18. When thou sawest a thief, thou consentedst unto him; *
    and hast been partaker with the adulterers.
  19. Thou hast let thy mouth speak wickedness, *
    and with thy tongue thou hast set forth deceit.
  20. Thou sattest and spakest against thy brother; *
    yea, and hast slandered thine own mother's son.
  21. 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.
  22. O consider this, ye that forget God, *
    lest I pluck you away, and there be none to deliver you.
  23. Whoso offereth me thanks and praise, he honoureth me; *
    and to him that ordereth his way aright, will I show the salvation of God.
