Amplified Bible

Psalm 36

Wickedness of Men and Lovingkindness of God.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord.

1Transgression speaks [like an oracle] to the wicked (godless) [deep] within his heart;
There is no fear (dread) of God before his eyes.

For he flatters and deceives himself in his own eyes
Thinking that his sinfulness will not be discovered and hated [by God].

The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful;
He has ceased to be wise and to do good.

He plans wrongdoing on his bed;
He sets himself on a path that is not good;
He does not reject or despise evil.


Your lovingkindness and graciousness, O Lord, extend to the skies,
Your faithfulness [reaches] to the clouds.

Your righteousness is like the mountains of God,
Your judgments are like the great deep.
O Lord, You preserve man and beast.

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
The children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.

They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;
And You allow them to drink from the river of Your delights.

For with You is the fountain of life [the fountain of life-giving water];
In Your light we see light.

10 
O continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You,
And Your righteousness (salvation) to the upright in heart.
11 
Do not let the foot of the proud [person] overtake me,
And do not let the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 
There those who [are perverse and] do evil have fallen;
They have been thrust down and cannot rise.

詩篇 36:1-12

第 36 篇

人的邪惡與上帝的美善

耶和華的僕人大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1罪惡在惡人內心深處說話,

他們眼中毫無對上帝的畏懼。

2他們自以為是,渾然不知自己的罪,

也不憎惡自己的罪。

3他們滿口惡言謊話,

毫無智慧和善行。

4他們躺在床上盤算作惡,

執意走罪惡的道路,

無惡不作。

5耶和華啊,你的慈愛廣及諸天,

你的信實高達穹蒼。

6你的公義穩如高山,

你的判斷深不可測。

耶和華啊,你保護人類,

也保護牲畜。

7上帝啊,

你的慈愛無比寶貴!

世人都在你的翅膀下尋求蔭庇。

8你讓他們飽享你殿裡的美食,

暢飲你樂河中的水。

9因為你是生命的泉源,

在你的光中我們得見光明。

10求你常施慈愛給認識你的人,

以公義恩待心地正直的人。

11別讓驕傲人的腳踐踏我,

別讓兇惡人的手驅趕我。

12看啊!惡人已經摔倒在地,

再也爬不起來。
