詩篇 34

上帝的美善

大衛在亞比米勒面前裝瘋,被趕出去後,作了此詩。

1我要常常稱頌耶和華,
時刻讚美祂。
我要誇耀祂的作為,
困苦人聽見必歡欣。
讓我們一同頌讚祂的偉大,
尊崇祂的名!
我向祂禱告,祂便應允我,
救我脫離一切恐懼。
凡仰望祂的必有榮光,
不致蒙羞。
我這可憐的人向祂呼求,
祂就垂聽,
救我脫離一切困境。
祂的天使必四面保護敬畏祂的人,拯救他們。
你們要親身體驗,
就知道耶和華的美善;
投靠祂的人有福了!
耶和華的聖民啊,
你們要敬畏祂,
因為敬畏祂的人一無所缺。
10 壯獅也會忍饑挨餓,
但尋求耶和華的人什麼福分都不缺。

11 孩子們啊,聽我說,
我要教導你們敬畏耶和華。
12 若有人熱愛生命,
渴望長壽和幸福,
13 就要舌頭不出惡言,
嘴唇不說詭詐的話。
14 要棄惡行善,
竭力追求和睦。
15 耶和華的眼睛看顧義人,
祂的耳朵垂聽他們的呼求。
16 耶和華嚴懲作惡之人,
從世上剷除他們。
17 義人向耶和華呼救,祂就垂聽,
拯救他們脫離一切患難。
18 祂安慰悲痛欲絕的人,
拯救心靈破碎的人。
19 義人也會遭遇許多患難,
但耶和華必拯救他,
20 保全他一身的骨頭,
連一根也不折斷。
21 惡人必遭惡報,
與義人為敵的必被定罪。
22 耶和華必救贖祂的僕人,
投靠祂的人必不被定罪。

Psalm 34

Psalm 34

A psalm of David when he was with Abimelek and pretended to be out of his mind. Abimelek drove him away, and David left.

I will thank the Lord at all times.
    My lips will always praise him.
I will find my glory in knowing the Lord.
    Let those who are hurting hear me and be joyful.
Join me in giving glory to the Lord.
    Let us honor him together.

I looked to the Lord, and he answered me.
    He saved me from everything I was afraid of.
Those who look to him have joyful faces.
    They are never covered with shame.
This poor man called out, and the Lord heard him.
    He saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord stands guard
    around those who have respect for him.
    And he saves them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good.
    Blessed is the person who goes to him for safety.
You holy people of God, have respect for the Lord.
    Those who respect him have everything they need.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry.
    But those who look to the Lord have every good thing they need.

11 My children, come. Listen to me.
    I will teach you to have respect for the Lord.
12 Do you love life
    and want to see many good days?
13 Then keep your tongues from speaking evil.
    Keep your lips from telling lies.
14 Turn away from evil, and do good.
    Look for peace, and go after it.

15 The Lord looks with favor on those who are godly.
    His ears are open to their cry.
16 But the Lord doesn’t look with favor on those who do evil.
    He removes all memory of them from the earth.

17 Godly people cry out, and the Lord hears them.
    He saves them from all their troubles.
18 The Lord is close to those whose hearts have been broken.
    He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.

19 The person who does what is right may have many troubles.
    But the Lord saves him from all of them.
20 The Lord watches over all his bones.
    Not one of them will be broken.

21 Sinners will be killed by their own evil.
    The enemies of godly people will be judged.
22 The Lord will save those who serve him.
    No one who goes to him for safety will be found guilty.
