Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 32

認罪與赦免

大衛的詩。

1過犯得赦免、罪惡被饒恕的人有福了!
心裡沒有詭詐、
不被耶和華算為有罪的人有福了!
我默然不語、拒絕認罪的時候,
就因整日哀歎而身心疲憊。
你晝夜管教我,
我的精力耗盡,
如水在盛夏枯竭。(細拉)

我向你承認自己的罪,
不再隱瞞自己的惡。
我說:「我要向耶和華認罪。」
你就赦免了我。(細拉)

因此,趁著還能尋求你的時候,
凡敬虔的人都當向你禱告;
洪水氾濫時,就沒有機會了。
你是我的藏身之所,
你保護我免遭危難,
用得勝的凱歌四面環繞我。(細拉)

耶和華說:「我要教導你,
引領你走正路;
我要勸導你,看顧你。
不要像無知的騾馬,
不用嚼環轡頭就不馴服。」

10 惡人必多遭禍患,
耶和華的慈愛必環繞信靠祂的人。
11 義人啊,
你們要靠耶和華歡喜快樂;
心地正直的人啊,
你們都要歡呼。

The Message

Psalm 32

A David Psalm

1Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be—
    you get a fresh start,
    your slate’s wiped clean.

Count yourself lucky—
    God holds nothing against you
    and you’re holding nothing back from him.

When I kept it all inside,
    my bones turned to powder,
    my words became daylong groans.

The pressure never let up;
    all the juices of my life dried up.

Then I let it all out;
    I said, “I’ll make a clean breast of my failures to God.”

Suddenly the pressure was gone—
    my guilt dissolved,
    my sin disappeared.

These things add up. Every one of us needs to pray;
    when all hell breaks loose and the dam bursts
    we’ll be on high ground, untouched.

God’s my island hideaway,
    keeps danger far from the shore,
    throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

Let me give you some good advice;
    I’m looking you in the eye
    and giving it to you straight:

“Don’t be ornery like a horse or mule
    that needs bit and bridle
    to stay on track.”

10 God-defiers are always in trouble;
    God-affirmers find themselves loved
    every time they turn around.

11 Celebrate God.
    Sing together—everyone!
    All you honest hearts, raise the roof!
