上帝的律法

1行为正直、遵行耶和华律法的人有福了!

Psalm 119

Psalm 119

א Aleph

Blessed are those who live without blame.
    They live in keeping with the law of the Lord.
Blessed are those who obey his covenant laws.
    They trust in him with all their hearts.
They don’t do anything wrong.
    They live as he wants them to live.
You have given me rules
    that I must obey completely.
I hope I will always stand firm
    in following your orders.
Then I won’t be put to shame
    when I think about all your commands.
I will praise you with an honest heart
    as I learn about how fair your decisions are.
I will obey your orders.
    Please don’t leave me all alone.

ב Beth

How can a young person keep their life pure?
    By living according to your word.
10 I trust in you with all my heart.
    Don’t let me wander away from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    so that I won’t sin against you.
12 Lord, I give praise to you.
    Teach me your orders.
13 With my lips I talk about
    all the decisions you have made.
14 Following your covenant laws gives me joy
    just as great riches give joy to others.

    Don’t hide your commands from me.
20 My heart is filled with longing
    for your laws at all times.
21 You correct proud people. They are under your curse.
    They wander away from your commands.
22 I obey your covenant laws.
    So don’t let evil people laugh at me or hate me.
23 Even if rulers sit together and tell lies about me,
    I will spend time thinking about your orders.
24 Your covenant laws are my delight.
    They give me wise advice.

51 Proud people make fun of me without mercy.
    But I don’t turn away from your law.
52 Lord, I remember the laws you gave long ago.
    I find comfort in them.
53 I am very angry
    because evil people have turned away from your law.
54 No matter where I live,
    I sing about your orders.

    Teach me your orders.

ט Teth

65 Lord, be good to me
    as you have promised.

67 Before I went through suffering, I went down the wrong path.
    But now I obey your word.
68 You are good, and what you do is good.
    Teach me your orders.
69 The lies of proud people have taken away my good name.
    But I follow your rules with all my heart.
70 Their unfeeling hearts are hard and stubborn.
    But I take delight in your law.
71 It was good for me to suffer.
    That’s what helped me to understand your orders.
72 The law you gave is worth more to me
    than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.

י Yodh

73 You made me and formed me with your own hands.
    Give me understanding so that I can learn your commands.
74 May those who have respect for you be filled with joy when they see me.

81 I deeply long for you to save me.
    I have put my hope in your word.
82 My eyes grow tired looking for what you have promised.
    I say, “When will you comfort me?”
83 I’m as useless as a wineskin that smoke has dried up.
    But I don’t forget to follow your orders.
84 How long do I have to wait?
    When will you punish those who attack me?
85 Proud people do what is against your law.
    They dig pits for me to fall into.
86 All your commands can be trusted.
    Help me, because people attack me without any reason.
87 They almost wiped me off the face of the earth.
    But I have not turned away from your rules.
88 Keep me alive, because of your faithful love.
    Do this so that I may obey the covenant laws you have given.

129 Your covenant laws are wonderful.
    So I obey them.
130 When your words are made clear, they bring light.
    They bring understanding to childish people.
131 I open my mouth and pant like a dog,
    because I long to know your commands.
132 Turn to me and have mercy on me.
    That’s what you’ve always done for those who love you.
133 Teach me how to live as you have promised.
    Don’t let any sin be my master.
134 Set me free from people who treat me badly.
    Then I will obey your rules.
135 Have mercy on me.
    Teach me your orders.
136 Streams of tears flow from my eyes,
    because people don’t obey your law.

137 Lord, you do what is fair.
    And your laws are right.
138 The laws you have made are fair.
    They can be completely trusted.
139 My anger is wearing me out,
    because my enemies don’t pay any attention to your words.
140 Your promises have proved to be true.
    I love them.
141 I’m not important. People look down on me.
    But I don’t forget to obey your rules.
142 You always do what is right.
    And your law is true.
143 I’ve had my share of trouble and suffering.
    But your commands give me delight.
144 Your covenant laws are always right.
    Help me to understand them. Then I will live.

148 My eyes stay open all night long.
    I spend my time thinking about your promises.
149 Listen to me, because you love me.
    Lord, keep me alive as you have promised.
150 Those who think up evil plans are near.
    They have wandered far away from your law.
151 But Lord, you are near.
    All your commands are true.
152 Long ago I learned from your covenant laws
    that you made them to last forever.

    They don’t want to obey your orders.

    Keep me alive as you have promised.
157 Many enemies attack me.
    But I haven’t turned away from your covenant laws.
158 I get very angry when I see people who aren’t faithful to you.
    They don’t obey your word.
159 See how I love your rules!

160 All your words are true.
    All your laws are right. They last forever.
