On a Thousand Hills


True thanks.

Kept promises.




O my people, listen!

For I am your God. Listen!

Here are my charges against you:

 I have no complaint about the sacrifices you bring to my altar, for you bring them regularly. 

But it isn’t sacrificial bullocks and goats that I really want from you.

 For all the animals of field and forest are mine!

The cattle on a thousand hills!

And all the birds upon the mountains! 

If I were hungry, I would not mention it to you—for all the world is mine and everything in it. 

No, I don’t need your sacrifices of flesh and blood.

What I want from you is your true thanks;

I want your promises fulfilled.

I want you to trust me in your times of trouble, so I can rescue you and you can give me glory.

—Psalm 50:7-15
