Psalm 50:1-15

1. The Mighty One, God, the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place 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 my consecrated ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice."
6. And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for God himself is judge. Selah
7. "Hear, O my people, and I will speak, O Israel, and I will testify against you: I am God, your God.
8. I do not rebuke you for your sacrifices or 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 creatures of the field 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 upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me."

Romans 11:33-36

33. Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
34. "Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?"
35. "Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?"
36. For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
