Bible Commentary for Psalms 50:1

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 50:1


50:1 Called - All the inhabitants of the earth, from one end to the other: whom he here summons to be witnesses of his proceedings in this solemn judgment, between him and his people, which is here poetically represented. For here is a tribunal erected, the judge coming to it, the witnesses and delinquents summoned, and at last the sentence given.


Discussion for Psalms 50:1

  • Bible Reader on Psalms 50:1
    This is the same Hebrew expression at Joshua 22 22 which is clearly translated "The God of gods, Jehovah " in most bibles but for some odd reason they don 't like to do the same at Psalm 50 1. Jehovah is the God above all gods. De 10 17, Ps. 97 9.
