(Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving) And pay your vows to the Most High; Psalm 50:14b As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me. Psalm 50:15 When a man, in the dire hour of his distress, casts himself upon God and believes He is able to succor and to help him. Then there is evidence of true reliance and real confidence in a real God, whom the mind’s eye sees and rejoices in. Charles H. Spurgeon, 1834-92
Ungodly things you have done and I kept silence; You thought that I was just like you. Psalm 50:21a From God’s conceived forbearance, the hypocrite indulges a false peace of mind and escapes disquietude by forming false conceptions of God. John Calvin, 1509-64, French reformer and theologian
I will reprove you (for hypocritical sin) and state the case in order before your eyes. Psalm 50:21b The Lord rebukes or reproves men by man’s spirit, by His Word, His ministers, and/or sometimes by His providences to bring to a sense and acknowledgment of sin. John Gill
He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving - honors Me; Psalm 50:23a Thank God for dirty dishes, They have a tale to tell, While others may go hungry, We're eating very well, With home and hearth and happiness, I shouldn't want to fuss, For by the stack of evidence, God's been good to us. Anon
