Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 101

君王的諾言

大衛的詩。

1耶和華啊,
我要歌頌你的慈愛和公正,
我要歌頌你。
我要謹慎行事,
走正直的路,
你何時來我這裡?
我要在家中以正直的心行事。
我要棄絕惡事,
我憎惡背棄上帝者的行為,
不沾染他們的惡行。
我要遠離心思悖逆的人,
不與邪惡的事有任何瓜葛。
我要消滅暗中譭謗鄰居的人,
也不容忍心高氣傲的人。
我要看顧國中忠於上帝的人,
讓他們與我同住。
行事正直的人才能服侍我。
詭詐的人必不得與我同住,
口出謊言的人必不得侍立在我面前。
每天早晨我要消滅國中所有的惡人,
從耶和華的城中剷除一切作惡的人。

The Message

Psalm 101

A David Psalm

11-8 My theme song is God’s love and justice,
    and I’m singing it right to you, God.
I’m finding my way down the road of right living,
    but how long before you show up?
I’m doing the very best I can,
    and I’m doing it at home, where it counts.
I refuse to take a second look
    at corrupting people and degrading things.
I reject made-in-Canaan gods,
    stay clear of contamination.
The crooked in heart keep their distance;
    I refuse to shake hands with those who plan evil.
I put a gag on the gossip
    who bad-mouths his neighbor;
I can’t stand
    arrogance.
But I have my eye on salt-of-the-earth people—
    they’re the ones I want working with me;
Men and women on the straight and narrow—
    these are the ones I want at my side.
But no one who traffics in lies
    gets a job with me; I have no patience with liars.
I’ve rounded up all the wicked like cattle
    and herded them right out of the country.
I purged God’s city
    of all who make a business of evil.
