Psalm 49 : 16bc-17, 18-19, 20-21, 22-23
What right have you to mouth My laws, or to talk about My covenant? You hate My commands and cast My words behind you.
You join a thief when you meet one; you keep company with adulterers. You have a mouth of evil and a deceitful tongue.
You speak ill of your brother, and slander your own mother’s son. Because I was silent while you did these things, you thought I was like you. But now I rebuke you and make this charge against you.
Give this a thought, you, who forget God; lest I tear you to pieces with no one to help you. Those who give with thanks offerings honour Me, but the one who walks blamelessly, I will show him the salvation of God.
