Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 26

義人的祈求

大衛的詩。

1耶和華啊,求你為我伸冤,
因為我行為純全,
毫不動搖地信靠你。
耶和華啊,求你察驗我,
試煉我,鑒察我的心思意念。
因為我銘記你的慈愛,
我行在你的真理中。
我沒有與詭詐者為伍,
沒有跟虛偽之人同流。
我憎恨奸惡之輩,
不願與惡人交往。
耶和華啊,我洗手表明清白,
再走到你的壇前,
高唱感恩之歌,
述說你的一切奇妙作為。
耶和華啊,我愛你的殿,
你榮耀充滿的地方。
別把我的靈魂和罪人同毀,
別把我的性命與嗜血之徒同滅。
10 他們滿腹奸計,收受賄賂。
11 但我行為純全,
求你施恩拯救我。
12 我站在平安之地,
我要在眾人面前讚美耶和華。

The Message

Psalm 26

A David Psalm

1Clear my name, God;
    I’ve kept an honest shop.
I’ve thrown in my lot with you, God, and
    I’m not budging.

    Examine me, God, from head to foot,
    order your battery of tests.
Make sure I’m fit
    inside and out

    So I never lose
    sight of your love,
But keep in step with you,
    never missing a beat.

4-5     I don’t hang out with tricksters,
    I don’t pal around with thugs;
I hate that pack of gangsters,
    I don’t deal with double-dealers.

6-7     I scrub my hands with purest soap,
    then join hands with the others in the great circle,
    dancing around your altar, God,
Singing God-songs at the top of my lungs,
    telling God-stories.

8-10     God, I love living with you;
    your house glows with your glory.
When it’s time for spring cleaning,
    don’t sweep me out with the quacks and crooks,
Men with bags of dirty tricks,
    women with purses stuffed with bribe-money.

11-12     You know I’ve been aboveboard with you;
    now be aboveboard with me.
I’m on the level with you, God;
    I bless you every chance I get.
