Bible Reading Plan | October 27, 2023



Our scripture for today is Psalm 50. It reminds us to have dread and fear in the presence of a holy God. The Lord is depicted in his perfection and beauty as He calls people out of dead religion and empty animal sacrifices into a living love relationship with Him. But, doom is in store for the wicked, as this psalm describes an angry God who will “tear to pieces” those who forget Him. As you read today, remember your only hope as a sinner is the forgiveness of the Messiah, Jesus Christ!


A psalm of Asaph.

1 The Mighty One, God, the Lord,

speaks and summons the earth

from the rising of the sun to where it sets.

2 From Zion, perfect in beauty,

God shines forth.

3 Our God comes

and will not be silent;

a fire devours before him,

and around him a tempest rages.

4 He summons the heavens above,

and the earth, that he may judge his people:

5 “Gather to me this consecrated people,

who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

6 And the heavens proclaim his righteousness,

for he is a God of justice.

7 “Listen, my people, and I will speak;

I will testify against you, Israel:

I am God, your God.

8 I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices

or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.

9 I have no need of a bull from your stall

or of goats from your pens,

10 for every animal of the forest is mine,

and the cattle on a thousand hills.

11 I know every bird in the mountains,

and the insects in the fields are mine.

12 If I were hungry I would not tell you,

for the world is mine, and all that is in it.

13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls

or drink the blood of goats?

14 “Sacrifice thank offerings to God,

fulfill your vows to the Most High,

15 and call on me in the day of trouble;

I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”

16 But to the wicked person, God says:

“What right have you to recite my laws

or take my covenant on your lips?

17 You hate my instruction

and cast my words behind you.

18 When you see a thief, you join with him;

you throw in your lot with adulterers.

19 You use your mouth for evil

and harness your tongue to deceit.

20 You sit and testify against your brother

and slander your own mother’s son.

21 When you did these things and I kept silent,

you thought I was exactly like you.

But I now arraign you

and set my accusations before you.

22 “Consider this, you who forget God,

or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:

23 Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me,

and to the blameless I will show my salvation.”

(Psalm 50)
