Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 50:16-23. In this Bible study lesson, we will study the Scripture in the second half of Psalm 50. In the first part of Psalm 50 we saw the promise that God will return, and it was mostly addressed to believers. This portion of the Scripture talks to unbelievers.
God says the wicked hate instruction. They steal, lie, and slander other people, and many other things. He addresses them saying they thought He would be silent and leave them to their destructive ways, but He reminds them that He will judge them for their wicked ways and unbelief.
He declares that those who offer praise glorify Him. He says those whose conversation is right will see the salvation of God. Have you received the salvation of God through His Son, Jesus Christ?
In this world there are both wicked people and those who believe in God. As you read the Bible you will discover how God honors His people by showing favor to them and how He punishes the wicked for their evil ways. We all have a choice to make whether we choose to follow God or reject Him. He doesn’t force His salvation on anyone; He gives us the freedom to choose Him. It’s not His will that any should perish, but He gives us a free will. Have you chosen to follow God? This is the most important choice you will make in your life. The choice you make will determine where you spend eternity.
Daily Bible Reading:
16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son.
21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
Things to think about:
- As you read this Scripture, where are you in the decision-making process?
- Are you described as one of the wicked ones or as one who praises and glorifies God?
- How can we help others to see the light?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,

About the book:
The Book of Psalms: Part 2 Chapters 31-60 by Deborah H. Bateman is 27th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book will contain approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms: Part 2 Chapters 31-60 contains thirty-five Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
