and he summons the earth from the rising to the setting of the sun.
God has shone forth.
A fire devours before him.
And a raging tempest is around him.
to judge his people:
those who have cut a covenant with me with a sacrifice.”
for God himself judges. Selah.
and I will testify against you, O Israel.
I am God, your God.
And your burnt offerings are continually before me.
nor he-goats from your folds.
and the cattle on 1,000 hills.
And everything that moves in the field is mine.
for the world is mine, and all its fullness.
or drink the blood of he-goats?
I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
“What right do you have to recite my statutes,
and to take up my covenant in your mouth?
and throw my words behind you.
you were pleased with him,
and you shared company with adulterers.
Your tongue frames deceit.
You even slander your own mother’s son.
You thought that I was just like you.
I will reprove you
and make my legal case in front of your eyes.
lest I tear you into pieces
and there be no one to deliver.
and prepares his road.
I will show him the salvation of God.”
