Psalm 50:1-6 – God comes and does not keep silence…

PSALM 50:1-6

1   The mighty one, God the LORD, 
          speaks and summons the earth 
          from the rising of the sun to its setting. 
2   Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, 
          God shines forth.

3   Our God comes and does not keep silence, 
          before him is a devouring fire, 
          and a mighty tempest all around him. 
4   He calls to the heavens above 
          and to the earth, that he may judge his people: 
5   “Gather to me my faithful ones, 
          who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!” 
6   The heavens declare his righteousness, 
          for God himself is judge.                                  Selah
