Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 19

上帝的作為和律法

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1諸天述說上帝的榮耀,
穹蒼傳揚祂的作為。
它們日復一日地訴說,
夜復一夜地宣揚,
無言無語,無聲無息。
它們的聲音傳遍天下,
它們的話語傳到地極。
上帝在天上為太陽設立居所。
太陽出來時,如步出洞房的新郎,
又如歡然奔跑賽程的健兒。
它滑過長空,
從天這邊繞到天那邊,
熱量廣及萬物。
耶和華的律法完美,
能更新生命;
耶和華的法度可靠,
讓愚人有智慧。
耶和華的法則公正,
使人充滿喜樂;
耶和華的命令純全,
讓人眼目明亮。
要以純潔的心敬畏耶和華,
直到永遠;
耶和華的法令可靠,
全然公義。
10 這些比純金還寶貴,
比蜂房的蜜更甘甜。

11 你僕人從中受到警戒,
遵守的人必得大賞賜。
12 誰能知道自己的過失呢?
求你赦免我心中隱藏的過錯。
13 求你攔阻我,
別讓我明知故犯,
別讓罪惡轄制我。
這樣,我才純全正直,
免犯大過。
14 耶和華——我的磐石、我的救贖主啊,
願你喜悅我口中的言語、心中的意念。

Psalm 19

Psalm 19

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

The heavens tell about the glory of God.
    The skies show that his hands created them.
Day after day they speak about it.
    Night after night they make it known.
But they don’t speak or use words.
    No sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into the whole earth.
    Their words go out from one end of the world to the other.

God has set up a tent in the heavens for the sun.
    The sun is like a groom leaving the room of his wedding night.
    The sun is like a great runner who takes delight in running a race.
It rises at one end of the heavens.
    Then it moves across to the other end.
    Everything enjoys its warmth.

The law of the Lord is perfect.
    It gives us new strength.
The laws of the Lord can be trusted.
    They make childish people wise.
The rules of the Lord are right.
    They give joy to our hearts.
The commands of the Lord shine brightly.
    They give light to our minds.
The law that brings respect for the Lord is pure.
    It lasts forever.
The commands the Lord gives are true.
    All of them are completely right.
10 They are more priceless than gold.
    They have greater value than huge amounts of pure gold.
They are sweeter than honey
    that is taken from the honeycomb.
11 Your servant is warned by them.
    When people obey them, they are greatly rewarded.

12 But who can know their own mistakes?
    Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Also keep me from the sins I want to commit.
    May they not be my master.
Then I will be without blame.
    I will not be guilty of any great sin against your law.

14 Lord, may these words of my mouth please you.
And may these thoughts of my heart please you also.
    You are my Rock and my Redeemer.
