(A psalm by Asaph.)
What Pleases God
1 From east to west,
the powerful Lord God
has been calling together
everyone on earth.

A Psalm of Asaph.
of...: or, for Asaph
1 The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
2 God shines brightly from Zion,
the most beautiful city.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

3 Our God approaches,
but not silently;
a flaming fire comes first,
and a storm surrounds him.
3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
4 God comes to judge his people.
He shouts to the heavens
and to the earth,
4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
5 “Call my followers together!
They offered me a sacrifice,
and we made an agreement.”
5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

6 The heavens announce,
“God is the judge,
and he is always honest.”
6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.

7 My people, I am God!
Israel, I am your God.
Listen to my charges
against you.
7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
8 Although you offer sacrifices
and always bring gifts,
8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
9 I won't accept your offerings
of bulls and goats.
9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.

10 Every animal in the forest
belongs to me,
and so do the cattle
on a thousand hills.
10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds
in the mountains,
and every wild creature
is in my care.
11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
mine: Heb. with me

12 If I were hungry,
I wouldn't tell you,
because I own the world
and everything in it.
12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
13 I don't eat the meat of bulls
or drink the blood of goats.
13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
14 I am God Most High!
The only sacrifice I want
is for you to be thankful
and to keep your word.
14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
15 Pray to me in time of trouble.
I will rescue you,
and you will honor me.
15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

16 But to the wicked I say:
“You don't have the right
to mention my laws or claim
to keep our agreement!
16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
17 You refused correction
and rejected my commands.
17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
18 You made friends
with every crook you met,
and you liked people who break
their wedding vows.
18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
hast...: Heb. thy portion was with
19 You talked only about violence
and told nothing but lies;
19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
givest: Heb. sendest
20 you sat around gossiping,
ruining the reputation
of your own relatives.”
20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.

21 When you did all of this,
I didn't say a word,
and you thought,
“God is just like us!”
But now I will accuse you.
21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
22 You have ignored me!
So pay close attention
or I will tear you apart,
and no one can help you.
22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

23 The sacrifice that honors me
is a thankful heart.
Obey me,
i 50.23 Obey me: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
and I, your God,
will show my power to save.
23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
that...: Heb. that disposeth his way
