Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 16

信靠之福

大衛的詩。

1上帝啊!我投靠你,
求你保護我。
我對耶和華說:「你是我的主,
我美好的一切都從你而來。」
世上敬畏你的人極其尊貴,
是我所喜愛的。
追隨假神的人,其愁苦必有增無減。
我必不向他們的假神獻上血祭,
口中也不提假神的名號。
耶和華啊,你是我的一切,
你賜我一切福分,
你掌管我的一切。
你賜我佳美之地,
我的產業何其美!
我要稱頌賜我教誨的耶和華,
我的良心也在夜間提醒我。
我常以耶和華為念,
祂在我右邊,我必不動搖。
因此,我的心歡喜,
我的靈快樂,
我的身體也安然無恙。
10 你不會把我的靈魂撇在陰間,
也不會讓你的聖者身體朽壞。
11 你把生命之路指示我,
你右手有永遠的福樂,
我在你面前充滿喜樂。

The Message

Psalm 16

A David Song

11-2 Keep me safe, O God,
    I’ve run for dear life to you.
I say to God, “Be my Lord!”
    Without you, nothing makes sense.

And these God-chosen lives all around—
    what splendid friends they make!

Don’t just go shopping for a god.
    Gods are not for sale.
I swear I’ll never treat god-names
    like brand-names.

5-6 My choice is you, God, first and only.
    And now I find I’m your choice!
You set me up with a house and yard.
    And then you made me your heir!

7-8 The wise counsel God gives when I’m awake
    is confirmed by my sleeping heart.
Day and night I’ll stick with God;
    I’ve got a good thing going and I’m not letting go.

9-10 I’m happy from the inside out,
    and from the outside in, I’m firmly formed.
You canceled my ticket to hell—
    that’s not my destination!

11 Now you’ve got my feet on the life path,
    all radiant from the shining of your face.
Ever since you took my hand,
    I’m on the right way.
