Responsorial Psalm for the Tuesday of the 2nd Week of Lent

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

Summary: God challenges the mere formality of sacrifices, urging adherence to His covenant beyond words, emphasizing discipline and obedience. Praise, coupled with righteousness, leads to the revelation of His salvation.

True Worship Demanded

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.
