诗篇 37

义人和恶人的结局

大卫的诗。

1不要因为恶人而烦恼,
也不要羡慕作恶之人,
因为他们如瞬息枯萎的草芥,
又如转眼消逝的绿草。

要信靠耶和华,要行善,
要在这片土地上安然度日。
要以耶和华为乐,
祂必成全你的愿望。
要把一切交托给耶和华,
信靠祂,祂必帮助你,
使你的公义如晨光照耀,
你的仁义如日中天。
要在耶和华面前安静,
耐心等候祂,
不要因恶人道路通达、阴谋得逞而愤愤不平。
你要抑制怒气,除掉愤怒;
不要心怀不平,
那会导致你作恶。
因为作恶的终必灭亡,
但等候耶和华的必承受土地。
10 再过片刻,恶人必不复存在,
无处可寻。
11 但谦卑人必承受土地,
得享太平。

12 恶人谋害义人,
对他们咬牙切齿。
13 但耶和华嗤笑邪恶人,
因为祂知道他们末日将临。
14 恶人拔剑张弓要消灭穷苦人,
杀戮正直人,
15 但他们的剑必刺穿自己的心,
他们的弓必被折断。

16 义人淡泊一生强过恶人财富如山。
17 因为恶人的势力终必瓦解,
耶和华必扶持义人。
18 耶和华天天看顾纯全无过的人,
他们的产业永远长存。
19 他们在灾难中不致绝望,
在饥荒时仍得饱足。
20 但恶人必灭亡,
上帝的仇敌必像野地枯萎的花草,
消逝如烟。

21 恶人借债不还,
义人慷慨给予。
22 蒙耶和华赐福的人必承受土地,
被耶和华咒诅的人必遭铲除。
23 耶和华引领义人的脚步,
喜悦他们所走的路。
24 他们即使失脚,也不会跌倒,
因为耶和华的手扶持他们。

25 从幼年到老年,
我从未见过义人遭弃,
也未见其后人讨饭。
26 他们乐善好施,
后代都蒙祝福。

27 你要离恶行善,
就必永远安居。
28 因为耶和华喜爱正义,
不丢弃信靠祂的人,
永远保护他们。
恶人的后代必被铲除。
29 义人必承受土地,
在地上永远安居。

30 义人口出智慧,诉说正义,
31 铭记上帝的律法,
从不失脚。

32 恶人窥探义人,
伺机谋害。
33 但耶和华不会让恶人得逞,
也不会让义人在审判时被定罪。

34 要等候耶和华,
坚守祂的道,
祂必赐你土地,使你有尊荣。
你必亲眼看见恶人被铲除。
35 我见过邪恶残暴之人,
乍看如葱茏的黎巴嫩香柏树,
36 再一看,
他已经消失得无影无踪,
无处可寻。
37 你看那纯全正直、爱好和平的人,
他们前途美好。
38 罪人必遭毁灭,
恶人必被铲除。
39 耶和华拯救义人,
患难时作他们的庇护所。
40 耶和华帮助他们,
拯救他们脱离恶人,
因为他们投靠祂。

New Living Translation

Psalm 37

Psalm 37[a]

A psalm of David.

Don’t worry about the wicked
    or envy those who do wrong.
For like grass, they soon fade away.
    Like spring flowers, they soon wither.

Trust in the Lord and do good.
    Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you your heart’s desires.

Commit everything you do to the Lord.
    Trust him, and he will help you.
He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn,
    and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.

Be still in the presence of the Lord,
    and wait patiently for him to act.
Don’t worry about evil people who prosper
    or fret about their wicked schemes.

Stop being angry!
    Turn from your rage!
Do not lose your temper—
    it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed,
    but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.

10 Soon the wicked will disappear.
    Though you look for them, they will be gone.
11 The lowly will possess the land
    and will live in peace and prosperity.

12 The wicked plot against the godly;
    they snarl at them in defiance.
13 But the Lord just laughs,
    for he sees their day of judgment coming.

14 The wicked draw their swords
    and string their bows
to kill the poor and the oppressed,
    to slaughter those who do right.
15 But their swords will stab their own hearts,
    and their bows will be broken.

16 It is better to be godly and have little
    than to be evil and rich.
17 For the strength of the wicked will be shattered,
    but the Lord takes care of the godly.

18 Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent,
    and they will receive an inheritance that lasts forever.
19 They will not be disgraced in hard times;
    even in famine they will have more than enough.

20 But the wicked will die.
    The Lord’s enemies are like flowers in a field—
    they will disappear like smoke.

21 The wicked borrow and never repay,
    but the godly are generous givers.
22 Those the Lord blesses will possess the land,
    but those he curses will die.

23 The Lord directs the steps of the godly.
    He delights in every detail of their lives.
24 Though they stumble, they will never fall,
    for the Lord holds them by the hand.

25 Once I was young, and now I am old.
    Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned
    or their children begging for bread.
26 The godly always give generous loans to others,
    and their children are a blessing.

27 Turn from evil and do good,
    and you will live in the land forever.
28 For the Lord loves justice,
    and he will never abandon the godly.

He will keep them safe forever,
    but the children of the wicked will die.
29 The godly will possess the land
    and will live there forever.

30 The godly offer good counsel;
    they teach right from wrong.
31 They have made God’s law their own,
    so they will never slip from his path.

32 The wicked wait in ambush for the godly,
    looking for an excuse to kill them.
33 But the Lord will not let the wicked succeed
    or let the godly be condemned when they are put on trial.

34 Put your hope in the Lord.
    Travel steadily along his path.
He will honor you by giving you the land.
    You will see the wicked destroyed.

35 I have seen wicked and ruthless people
    flourishing like a tree in its native soil.
36 But when I looked again, they were gone!
    Though I searched for them, I could not find them!

37 Look at those who are honest and good,
    for a wonderful future awaits those who love peace.
38 But the rebellious will be destroyed;
    they have no future.

39 The Lord rescues the godly;
    he is their fortress in times of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them,
    rescuing them from the wicked.
He saves them,
    and they find shelter in him.
