诗篇 90

卷四:诗篇90—106

上帝与世人

上帝的仆人摩西的祈祷。

1主啊,
你是我们世世代代的居所。
群山尚未诞生,
大地和世界还未形成,
从亘古到永远,你是上帝。
你叫人归回尘土,
说:“世人啊,归回尘土吧。”
在你眼中,
千年如一日,又如夜里的一更。
你像急流一般把世人冲走,
叫他们如梦消逝。
他们像清晨的嫩草,
清晨还生机盎然,
傍晚就凋谢枯萎。
你的怒气使我们灭亡,
你的愤怒使我们战抖。
你知道我们的罪恶,
对我们隐秘的罪了如指掌。
我们活在你的烈怒之下,
一生就像一声叹息飞逝而去。
10 我们一生七十岁,
强壮的可活八十岁,
但人生最美好的时光也充满劳苦和愁烦,
生命转瞬即逝,
我们便如飞而去。
11 谁明白你愤怒的威力?
有谁因为明白你的烈怒而对你心存敬畏呢?
12 求你教导我们明白人生有限,
使我们做有智慧的人。
13 耶和华啊,我还要苦候多久呢?
求你怜悯你的仆人。
14 求你在清晨以慈爱来满足我们,
使我们一生欢喜歌唱。
15 你使我们先前经历了多少苦难和不幸的岁月,
求你也赐给我们多少欢乐的岁月。
16 求你让仆人们看见你的作为,
让我们的后代看见你的威荣。
17 愿主——我们的上帝恩待我们,
使我们所做的亨通,
使我们所做的亨通。

Psalm 90

BOOK IV

Psalms 90–106

Psalm 90

A prayer of Moses, the man of God.

Lord, from the very beginning
    you have been like a home to us.
Before you created the whole world and the mountains were made,
    from the beginning to the end you are God.

You turn human beings back to dust.
    You say to them, “Return to dust.”
To you a thousand years
    are like a day that has just gone by.
    They are like a few hours of the night.
Yet you sweep people away, and they die.
    They are like new grass that grows in the morning.
In the morning it springs up new,
    but by evening it’s all dried up.

Your anger destroys us.
    Your burning anger terrifies us.
You have put our sins right in front of you.
    You have placed our secret sins where you can see them clearly.
You have been angry with us all of our days.
    We groan as we come to the end of our lives.
10 We live to be about 70.
    Or we may live to be 80, if we stay healthy.
But even our best days are filled with trouble and sorrow.
    The years quickly pass, and we are gone.

11 If only we knew the power of your anger!
    It’s as great as the respect we should have for you.
12 Teach us to realize how short our lives are.
    Then our hearts will become wise.

13 Lord, please stop punishing us!
    How long will you keep it up?
    Be kind to us.
14 Satisfy us with your faithful love every morning.
    Then we can sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have made us suffer.
    Give us joy for as many years as we’ve had trouble.
16 Show us your mighty acts.
    Let our children see your glorious power.

17 May the Lord our God always be pleased with us.
    Lord, make what we do succeed.
    Please make what we do succeed.
