|<< Psalm 50 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
The God of gods, Lord Jehovah, has spoken, and called the Earth from the risings of the sun and unto its settings.
2From Zion God has shown a glorious crown.
3God will come and will not be silent, and fire will devour before him, and it will storm around him greatly.
4He shall call Heaven from above and to the Earth, to judge his people.
5Gather unto him his Elect Ones who establish his covenant by sacrifice!
6Heaven will show his righteousness, because God is The Judge.
7Hear, my people, and I shall speak to you, and Israel, I shall testify to you.
8I am God, your God. I shall not rebuke you concerning your sacrifices, and your offerings are always before me.
9I shall not take bulls from your house, neither goats from your fold.
10Because all the animals of the wilderness are mine, and the cattle that are on the hills, and the bulls.
11I know every bird of the sky and the animal of the wilderness is mine.
12If I were hungry, I would not tell you, because the world in its fullness is mine.
13I do not eat the flesh of calves or drink the blood of goats.
14Offer thanksgiving to God and fulfill your vows to The Highest.
15Call upon me in the day of trouble; I shall strengthen you and you will glorify me.
16God says to the sinner, “What business do you have with The Books of my Commandments, that you have taken my Covenant in your mouth?”
17“But you have hated my instruction and you have cast my words behind you.”
18“If you have seen a thief, you have run with him and you have put your lot with the adulterer.”
19“Your mouth has spoken wickedness and your tongue speaks deceit.
20“You have been sitting and plotting against your brother; you have been mocking against the son of your mother.”
21“You have done all these things and I have been silent to you; you had hoped that I would be evil like you, but I shall rebuke you and I shall set them in order before your eyes.”
22“Understand this, those who forget God, lest you be crushed and there is no one to deliver.”
23“He who offers thanksgiving is he who will glorify me; there I shall show him the way of the salvation of our God.”
