Psalms 50:6-8


50:6 The heavens declare his fairness, 1 

for God is judge. 2  (Selah)

50:7 He says: 3 

“Listen my people! I am speaking!

Listen Israel! I am accusing you! 4 

I am God, your God!

50:8 I am not condemning 5  you because of your sacrifices,

or because of your burnt sacrifices that you continually offer me. 6 

Psalms 51:17-18


51:17 The sacrifices God desires are a humble spirit 7 

O God, a humble and repentant heart 8  you will not reject. 9 

51:18 Because you favor Zion, do what is good for her! 10 

Fortify 11  the walls of Jerusalem! 12 

1 tn Or “justice.”

2 tn Or “for God, he is about to judge.” The participle may be taken as substantival (as in the translation above) or as a predicate (indicating imminent future action in this context).

3 tn The words “he says” are supplied in the translation for clarification. God’s charges against his people follow.

4 tn Heb “Israel, and I will testify against you.” The imperative “listen” is understood in the second line by ellipsis (note the preceding line).

5 tn Or “rebuking.”

6 tn Heb “and your burnt sacrifices before me continually.”

7 tn Heb “a broken spirit.”

8 tn Heb “a broken and crushed heart.”

9 tn Or “despise.”

10 tn Heb “do what is good for Zion in your favor.”

11 tn Or “Build.” The imperfect verbal form is used here to express the psalmist’s wish or request.
