Responsorial Psalm for the Monday of the 2nd Week in Ordinary Time Cycle 2

Psalm 50:8-9, 16bc-17, 21 and 23

Summary: God rebukes not for lack of sacrifices, but for ignoring His commandments. He seeks true obedience and discipline, promising salvation to those who walk righteously.

God Values Obedience Over Offerings

R. To the upright I will show the saving power of God.

“Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you,
for your burnt offerings are before me always.
I take from your house no bullock,
no goats out of your fold.”

R. To the upright I will show the saving power of God.

“Why do you recite my statutes,
and profess my covenant with your mouth,
Though you hate discipline
and cast my words behind you?”

R. To the upright I will show the saving power of God.

“When you do these things, shall I be deaf to it?
Or do you think that I am like yourself?
I will correct you by drawing them up before your eyes.
He that offers praise as a sacrifice glorifies me;
and to him that goes the right way I will show the salvation of God.”

R. To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
