1 elohim Yahweh has spoken; *
he has called the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
2 Out of Zion, perfect in its beauty, *
God reveals himself in glory.
3 elohenu will come and will not keep silence; *
before him there is a consuming flame, and round about him a raging storm.
4 He calls the heavens and the earth from above *
to witness the judgment of his people.
5 "Gather before me my loyal followers, *
those who have made a covenant with me and sealed it with sacrifice."
6 Let the heavens declare the rightness of his cause; *
for elohim himself is judge he. Selah.
7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak: "O Israel, I will bear witness against you; *
for elohim eloheka I am God, your God.
8 I do not accuse you because of your sacrifices; *
your offerings are always before me.
23  Consider this well, you who forget elowah, *
lest I rend you and there be none to deliver you.
24  Whoever offers me the sacrifice of thanksgiving honors me; *
but to those who keep in my way will I show the salvation of elohim."
The introduction of verse one [not read] says, “a psalm of gatherer el,” where the use of “el” means one whose soul has married Yahweh (like David’s), who then gathers other souls to do the same. This “el” is not a worldly spirit or soul, but instead David sang of it being “elohim Yahweh.” That means being divinely possessed by the soul of Yahweh’s Son – Adam (a.k.a. Jesus). The role of a priest of Yahweh is to assemble other souls to be the same as their teacher or master. To do that, one’s inner “el” must be Yahweh’s Son resurrected.
In seeing David as the “gatherer el” that led the people to live up to the meaning of the name “Israel” – as those “Who Retained elohim Yahweh” within their souls – the people were “gathered” to serve Yahweh as planned, when Moses delivered them to Canaan and Joshua led them in. Thus, what is stated in the remainder of verse one should be seen as singing: “the elohim Yahweh [the soul of Adam] has spoken and called the flesh [symbolic of “earth”] ; to the rising of the light of truth [symbolic of “sun”] until death [symbolic of “it goes down”]. This says that once souls have been gathered, then they will always be saved, due to the protection of the “elohim Yahweh” that has been resurrected within each of their souls.
In verse two, one needs to understand the meaning behind the name “Zion.” That meaning is “Dry Place, Sign Post, Tradition; Fortress,” depending on the Hebrew or Arabic translation. I see this primarily as “Dry Place,” which means the marriage of a soul to Yahweh’s Spirit must be done from total obedience and submission to His Will. One’s opinions are set aside, making one’s soul become void of self-emotions, thereby “Dry.” It is from this positioning that Yahweh becomes the underground flow of living waters that makes a soul in its flesh flourish spiritually. This then brings about the perfection of Yahweh and the beauty of His Son’s soul within. This inner presence is the “elohim” that “shines forth” the light of truth.
When verse three begins by singing “will come our elohim,” the Hebrew word translated as “will come” can equally say “will enter.” This has to be seen as an “entrance” within one’s soul; and, it cannot be seen as a nearness that is external. Because David possessed the “gatherer el,” the plural possessive pronoun “our” says all who were true children of Israel” were those who collectively (and individually) were inwardly possessed by the same “elohim” of Yahweh (His Son’s soul resurrected in each and all).
When this statement of equal possession is seen – divine marriage to Yahweh – it is this presence that leads to ministry, where “not will keep silent” says each will become a teacher that will lead other souls to likewise marry their souls to Yahweh. This becomes the model of parents who are truly Israelites teaching their children to become like themselves. When silence takes hold, no one teaches the truth and no one learns the truth. The roots of silence come from self-importance failing to teach total submission to the Will of Yahweh; but that self will be destroyed by the fire of the Spirit, when a soul is Baptized clean, so the proof of one’s mettle is done.
In verse four, the metaphor of “from the heavens to the earth” must be seen as “from the spiritual [the soul within] to the flesh,” where the physical body is led by the guidance of Yahweh, His Spirit and the Son reborn. This means the inner “heaven” of Yahweh is also where the inner “heaven” of the Son is merged with the inner “heaven” of the soul (which is eternal). These three combine to be the plural number of “heavens.” When Yahweh is not thought to be in outer space or far beyond oneself (where a “self” is one’s “soul”), it make Yahweh be in the Son reborn, who ministers to the people physically (face-to-face) and spiritually (soul-to-soul), so “that he may judge his people.”
Verse five begins with a construct formed from the Hebrew word “asaph,” which means “gatherer.” This verse then sings, “gather together to me all my saints,” which is the truth of a minister in the flesh. The soul born into flesh will become possessed by the soul of Yahweh’s Son (Adam-Jesus), whereby the flesh will become a new vehicle in which the Son of God will move. This is the truth of being “Holy, Sacred, Set apart by God, and a Saint.” It is like how Yahweh told Moses to remove his sandals because he stood on holy ground. That “holy ground” was not near a burning bush in Midian, it was the flesh of Moses having become possessed by Yahweh’s Spirit. The “covenant made with me” is the marriage agreement that says a soul in the flesh will forevermore do the Will of Yahweh, as His wife-soul. That “sacrifice” is the complete submission of a wife to her Husband, becoming the sacrifice of self-name, so one’s soul takes on the name of Yahweh – Israel – and His Son – Adam-Jesus.
When verse six then says, “and let the heavens declare his righteousness ; for elohim,” there is a vertical bar placed (“׀”) which is missed in translation. Here, again, the use of “heavens” must be seen as inward spirituality that speaks in ministry, as a Saint or Priest of Yahweh. the use of “righteousness” is only possible by the inner presence of the soul of Yahweh’s Son, where two “heavens” (souls) combine as one. This state of “righteousness” is attributed solely “to elohim,” which comes from Yahweh. The vertical bar forces one to pause and reflect on that inner presence being absolutely necessary. Beyond the vertical bar is written “judge he,” which can also translate as “govern he.” This says the “elohim” has become one’s Lord over the soul and its flesh. This, again, is how “righteousness” comes to a prior sinner. The verse then ends with “selah,” which means “exalted.” It is the truth of one’s Lord within that will prove to be a soul’s exaltation in the judgment of Yahweh.
In verse seven David repeated “elohim,” by ending the verse singing, “elohim your elohim I am.” This should be heard as David singing about the Trinity, where “elohim” means the soul of Yahweh’s Son (Adam-Jesus), with “your elohim” being one’s soul born into a body of flesh. That means “elohim your elohim” is a merger of two souls in one, with Yahweh’s “elohim” being “your elohim’s” Lord. That Lord becomes the voice of Yahweh within one’s soul, such that Yahweh is “I Am,” within the whole.
That ending is led by Yahweh singing through David, “hear my people and I will speak , Israel [Who Retains the elohim of Yahweh] and I will be called to testify against you ;” This says the presence of Yahweh within allows those who truly Retain the el of Yahweh, as those souls gathered by David’s el, they will be able to hear the voice of Yahweh within, through the Son’s “elohim.” This will be the voice heard in ministry, as a Saint hearing the words of Yahweh through the inner Lord that is the Son reborn, which says the only way to hear the truth for oneself is to deny oneself and submit fully to Yahweh in divine marriage. That holy union brings about the Trinity within one body of flesh.
Verse eight is then a direct link to the Track 1 Old Testament reading from Isaiah, where David wrote the same thing as Isaiah, when both were speaking of Yahweh’s expectations of His children (His Sons reborn). Here, David sang of Yahweh saying, “not for your sacrifices I will rebuke you ; or your burnt offering in front of me continually”. In that, the “sacrifices” must be made of one’s soul, which means “not for your sacrifices” speaks the negative of a self-centered soul refusing (“not”) to “sacrifice” self to Yahweh. That refusal to marry Yahweh will lead to a “rebuke” of one’s soul (much like the lack of approval for Cain’s offering of burnt fruits and vegetables). These are the “burnt offerings” of animals, done by priests of the tabernacle, which does not please Yahweh. Yahweh made that clear in Isaiah’s song. The deeper meaning of “in front of me continually” is to put on the ”face” of Yahweh, through divine union and shining His Son as one’s Lord, or one’s “face before” Yahweh [the First Commandment]. When this is done, it is through a divine union that lasts forever, not just from each new moon for a new year to the nest new year’s feasts.
In the verses between verse eight and the last two verses of Psalm 50, the Episcopal Church has obviously changed the numbering, such that they present the true verses twenty-two and twenty-three as twenty-three and twenty-four. The NRSV shows Psalm 50 as only having twenty-three verses; so, I have stricken through the Episcopal Church verse numbers and corrected them to show the truth.
Verse twenty-two states: “discern now that you who forget elohim Yahweh ; lest I will tear in pieces , and none to be delivered .” This speaks of all souls who reject marrying Yahweh and receiving His Spirit and giving rebirth to His Son’s soul within their own soul. The word “discern” calls upon those who worship self, through the Big Brain, to determine why that Big Brain could not recognize the All-Knowing Mind of Yahweh, which becomes one’s inner source in one’s heart and soul. The fleshy organ atop one’s head cannot last for eternity; so, it cannot fathom life beyond the grave. Worship of a Big Brain will lead to one being “torn to pieces,” where death will “ender” one’s flesh separated from one’s soul. When that happens, the Big Brain will turn to much, then dust, and it will how no power “to deliver” a soul to eternal life. Salvation flows through one’s heart and soul, not through one’s mental processes in the head.
With that statement made about what will happen if one does not remember to seek salvation, the final verse ends on a happy note. It begins by singing, “whoever offers praise,” where the truth of “praise” (or better, “thanksgiving”) is it comes from the soul that has been led as its Lord-soul to “praise” Yahweh. That personal experience of Yahweh, through His Son’s soul one with one’s soul, leads the host soul to offer the most sincere “thanksgiving” possible, because it is based on the promise of eternal life having been gained. There can be no better “praise” than knowing salvation of one’s soul has been assured; and, that promise has come from a complete sacrifice out of love for Yahweh. A soul who has not come to know Yahweh personally cannot truly offer such “praise.”
The verse then continues by singing, “he will honor my soul and appoint him journey ; I will see him , salvation elohim .” In this, the word “honor” or “glory” can only come to a host soul through the resurrection of Yahweh’s Son becoming one with a host soul. The soul of Adam is this “glorification” made. That will the Lord over one’s soul in the flesh, who will be “appointed” by Yahweh and who will then “appoint” one’s soul on a “journey” or “path” of righteousness. The “road” to ministry is as the Son of Yahweh reborn in the flesh. When one’s flesh has transformed into a Saint, one “will see” and one “will show” others that the Son of God walks the face of the earth, leading seekers to the light of truth. This source of “thanksgiving” is then the “elohim of salvation,” who Christians know by the name of “Jesus.” That name means “Yah[weh] Saves,” so Jesus is the “elohim of salvation” from Yahweh.
