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。

Psalm 139

Psalm 139

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Lord, you have seen what is in my heart.
    You know all about me.
You know when I sit down and when I get up.
    You know what I’m thinking even though you are far away.
You know when I go out to work and when I come back home.
    You know exactly how I live.
Lord, even before I speak a word,
    you know all about it.

You are all around me, behind me and in front of me.
    You hold me safe in your hand.
I’m amazed at how well you know me.
    It’s more than I can understand.

How can I get away from your Spirit?
    Where can I go to escape from you?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there.
    If I lie down in the deepest parts of the earth, you are also there.
Suppose I were to rise with the sun in the east.
    Suppose I travel to the west where it sinks into the ocean.
10 Your hand would always be there to guide me.
    Your right hand would still be holding me close.

11 Suppose I were to say, “I’m sure the darkness will hide me.
    The light around me will become as dark as night.”
12 Even that darkness would not be dark to you.
    The night would shine like the day,
    because darkness is like light to you.

13 You created the deepest parts of my being.
    You put me together inside my mother’s body.
14 How you made me is amazing and wonderful.
    I praise you for that.
What you have done is wonderful.
    I know that very well.
15 None of my bones was hidden from you
    when you made me inside my mother’s body.
    That place was as dark as the deepest parts of the earth.
When you were putting me together there,
16     your eyes saw my body even before it was formed.
You planned how many days I would live.
    You wrote down the number of them in your book
    before I had lived through even one of them.

17 God, your thoughts about me are priceless.
    No one can possibly add them all up.
18 If I could count them,
    they would be more than the grains of sand.
If I were to fall asleep counting and then wake up,
    you would still be there with me.

19 God, I wish you would kill the people who are evil!
    I wish those murderers would get away from me!
20 They are your enemies. They misuse your name.
    They misuse it for their own evil purposes.
21 Lord, I really hate those who hate you!
    I really hate those who rise up against you!
22 I have nothing but hatred for them.
    I consider them to be my enemies.

23 God, see what is in my heart.
    Know what is there.
Test me.
    Know what I’m thinking.
24 See if there’s anything in my life you don’t like.
    Help me live in the way that is always right.
