Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

诗篇 11

信靠上帝

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1我投靠耶和华,
你们怎能对我说:“要像飞鸟一样逃到山里。
看啊,恶人弯弓搭箭,
要暗射心地正直的人。
根基若遭毁坏,
义人还能做什么?”
耶和华在祂的圣殿里,
坐在天上的宝座上,
放眼巡视,察看世人。
耶和华察验义人和恶人,
祂憎恨邪恶和残暴之徒。
祂要把烈焰熊熊的火炭和硫磺降在恶人身上,
用炙热的风惩罚他们。
因为耶和华是公义的,
祂喜爱公义。
正直的人必见祂的面。

The Message

Psalm 11

A David Psalm

11-3 I’ve already run for dear life
    straight to the arms of God.
So why would I run away now
    when you say,

“Run to the mountains; the evil
    bows are bent, the wicked arrows
Aimed to shoot under cover of darkness
    at every heart open to God.
The bottom’s dropped out of the country;
    good people don’t have a chance”?

4-6 But God hasn’t moved to the mountains;
    his holy address hasn’t changed.
He’s in charge, as always, his eyes
    taking everything in, his eyelids
Unblinking, examining Adam’s unruly brood
    inside and out, not missing a thing.
He tests the good and the bad alike;
    if anyone cheats, God’s outraged.
Fail the test and you’re out,
    out in a hail of firestones,
Drinking from a canteen
    filled with hot desert wind.

God’s business is putting things right;
    he loves getting the lines straight,
Setting us straight. Once we’re standing tall,
    we can look him straight in the eye.
