Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

诗篇 19

上帝的作为和律法

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1诸天述说上帝的荣耀,
穹苍传扬祂的作为。
它们日复一日地诉说,
夜复一夜地宣扬,
无言无语,无声无息。
它们的声音传遍天下,
它们的话语传到地极。
上帝在天上为太阳设立居所。
太阳出来时,如步出洞房的新郎,
又如欢然奔跑赛程的健儿。
它滑过长空,
从天这边绕到天那边,
热量广及万物。
耶和华的律法完美,
能更新生命;
耶和华的法度可靠,
让愚人有智慧。
耶和华的法则公正,
使人充满喜乐;
耶和华的命令纯全,
让人眼目明亮。
要以纯洁的心敬畏耶和华,
直到永远;
耶和华的法令可靠,
全然公义。
10 这些比纯金还宝贵,
比蜂房的蜜更甘甜。

11 你仆人从中受到警戒,
遵守的人必得大赏赐。
12 谁能知道自己的过失呢?
求你赦免我心中隐藏的过错。
13 求你拦阻我,
别让我明知故犯,
别让罪恶辖制我。
这样,我才纯全正直,
免犯大过。
14 耶和华——我的磐石、我的救赎主啊,
愿你喜悦我口中的言语、心中的意念。

Psalm 19

Psalm 19

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The heavens tell about the glory of God.
    The skies show that his hands created them.
Day after day they speak about it.
    Night after night they make it known.
But they don’t speak or use words.
    No sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into the whole earth.
    Their words go out from one end of the world to the other.

God has set up a tent in the heavens for the sun.
    The sun is like a groom leaving the room of his wedding night.
    The sun is like a great runner who takes delight in running a race.
It rises at one end of the heavens.
    Then it moves across to the other end.
    Everything enjoys its warmth.

The law of the Lord is perfect.
    It gives us new strength.
The laws of the Lord can be trusted.
    They make childish people wise.
The rules of the Lord are right.
    They give joy to our hearts.
The commands of the Lord shine brightly.
    They give light to our minds.
The law that brings respect for the Lord is pure.
    It lasts forever.
The commands the Lord gives are true.
    All of them are completely right.
10 They are more priceless than gold.
    They have greater value than huge amounts of pure gold.
They are sweeter than honey
    that is taken from the honeycomb.
11 Your servant is warned by them.
    When people obey them, they are greatly rewarded.

12 But who can know their own mistakes?
    Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Also keep me from the sins I want to commit.
    May they not be my master.
Then I will be without blame.
    I will not be guilty of any great sin against your law.

14 Lord, may these words of my mouth please you.
And may these thoughts of my heart please you also.
    You are my Rock and my Redeemer.
