The majesty of God in the Church.
Psalms 50:1 The LORDE euen the mightie God hath spoke, & called the worlde from the rysinge vp of the sonne vnto the goinge downe of the same. Psalms 50:2 Out of Sion apeareth the glorious beutie of God. Psalms 50:3 Oure God shal come, and not kepe sylence: there goeth before him a consumynge fyre, and a mightie tempest rounde aboute him. Psalms 50:4 He shal call the heauens from aboue, and the earth, that he maye iudge his people.
His order to gather saints.
Psalms 50:5 Gather my sayntes together vnto me, those yt set more by the couenaunt then by eny offeringe. Psalms 50:6 And the heauens shal declare his rightuousnesse, for God is iudge himself.
The pleasure of God is not in ceremonies,
Psalms 50:7 Sela. Heare, o my people: let me speake, let me testifie amonge you, o Israel: I am God, euen thy God. Psalms 50:8 I reproue the not because of thy sacrifice, yi burntofferinges are allwaye before me. Psalms 50:9 I wil take no bullockes out of thy house, ner gotes out of thy foldes. Psalms 50:10 For all the beestes of the felde are myne, and thousandes of catell vpon the hilles. Psalms 50:11 I knowe all the foules vpon the mountaynes, and the wilde beastes of the felde are in my sight. Psalms 50:12 Yf I be hongrie, I wil not tell the: for ye whole worlde is myne, and all that therin is. Psalms 50:13 Thynkest thou, that I wil eate the flesh of oxen, or drynke the bloude of goates?
but in sincerity of obedience.
Psalms 50:14 Offre vnto God prayse and thankesgeuynge, and paye thy vowes vnto the most hyest. Psalms 50:15 And call vpo me in the tyme of trouble, so wil I heare the, that thou shalt thanke me. Psalms 50:16 But vnto the vngodly sayeth God: Why doest thou preach my lawes, and takest my couenaunt in thy mouth? Psalms 50:17 Where as thou hatest to be refourmed, and castest my wordes behynde the? Psalms 50:18 Yf thou seist a thefe, thou runnest with him, and art partaker with the aduouterers. Psalms 50:19 Thou lettest yi mouth speake wickednesse, & thy tonge paynteth disceate. Psalms 50:20 Thou syttest and speakest agaynst thy brother, yee and slaundrest thine owne mothers sonne. Psalms 50:21 This thou doest, whyle I holde my tonge: and thinkest me to be eue soch one as thy self: but I wil reproue the, & set my self agaynst the. Psalms 50:22 O considre this, ye that forget God: lest I plucke you awaie, and there be none to delyuer you. Psalms 50:23 Who so offreth me thakes and prayse, he honoureth me: & this is the waye, wherby I wil shewe him the sauynge health of God.
