Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 139

上帝的全知和佑護

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1耶和華啊,你洞察我的內心,
知道我的一切。
我或坐下或起來,你都知道,
你從遠處就知道我的心思意念。
我或外出或躺臥,你都瞭解,
你熟悉我的一切行為。
耶和華啊,我話未出口,
你已洞悉一切。
你在我前後護衛著我,
以大能的手保護我。
這一切實在是太奇妙,
太深奧了,我無法明白。

我去哪裡可躲開你的靈?
我跑到哪裡可避開你的面?
我若升到天上,你在那裡;
我若下到陰間,你也在那裡。
縱使我乘著晨風飛到遙遠的海岸居住,
10 就是在那裡,
你的手必引導我,
你大能的手必扶持我。
11 我想,黑暗一定可以遮蔽我,
讓我四圍變成黑夜。
12 然而,即使黑暗也無法遮住你的視線。
在你看來,黑夜亮如白晝,
黑暗與光明無異。
13 你創造了我,
使我在母腹中成形。
14 我稱謝你,
因為你創造我的作為是多麼奇妙可畏,
我心深深知道。
15 我在隱秘處被造、在母腹中成形的時候,
你對我的形體一清二楚。
16 我的身體還未成形,
你早已看見了。
你為我一生所定的年日,
我還沒有出生就已經記在你的冊子上了。
17 耶和華啊,
你的意念對我來說是何等寶貴,何等浩博!
18 我若數算,它們比海沙還多。
我醒來的時候,
依然與你在一起。
19 耶和華啊,願你殺戮惡人!
嗜血成性的人啊,你們走開!
20 他們惡言頂撞你,
你的仇敵褻瀆你的名。
21 耶和華啊,
我憎恨那些憎恨你的人,
我厭惡那些攻擊你的人。
22 我恨透了他們,
我視他們為敵人。
23 上帝啊,求你鑒察我,
好知道我的內心;
求你試驗我,好知道我的心思。
24 求你看看我裡面是否有邪惡,
引導我走永恆的道路。

The Message

Psalm 139

A David Psalm

11-6 God, investigate my life;
    get all the facts firsthand.
I’m an open book to you;
    even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
    I’m never out of your sight.
You know everything I’m going to say
    before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you’re there,
    then up ahead and you’re there, too—
    your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
    I can’t take it all in!

7-12 Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
    to be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you’re there!
    If I go underground, you’re there!
If I flew on morning’s wings
    to the far western horizon,
You’d find me in a minute—
    you’re already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, “Oh, he even sees me in the dark!
    At night I’m immersed in the light!”
It’s a fact: darkness isn’t dark to you;
    night and day, darkness and light, they’re all the same to you.

13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
    you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
    Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
    I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
    you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
    how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
    all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
    before I’d even lived one day.

17-22 Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful!
    God, I’ll never comprehend them!
I couldn’t even begin to count them—
    any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!
    And please, God, do away with wickedness for good!
And you murderers—out of here!—
    all the men and women who belittle you, God,
    infatuated with cheap god-imitations.
See how I hate those who hate you, God,
    see how I loathe all this godless arrogance;
I hate it with pure, unadulterated hatred.
    Your enemies are my enemies!

23-24 Investigate my life, O God,
    find out everything about me;
Cross-examine and test me,
    get a clear picture of what I’m about;
See for yourself whether I’ve done anything wrong—
    then guide me on the road to eternal life.
