詩篇 39

受苦者的呼求

大衛的詩,交給樂長耶杜頓。

1我說:「我要謹言慎行,
免犯口舌之罪。
只要身邊有惡人,
我就用嚼環勒住自己的口。」
然而,我默不作聲,
連好話也不出口時,
內心就更加痛苦。
我心如火燒,越沉思越煩躁,
便開口呼求:
「耶和華啊,求你讓我知道我人生的終點和壽數,
明白人生何其短暫。
你使我的生命轉瞬即逝,
我的歲月在你眼中不到片刻。
人的生命不過是一絲氣息,(細拉)
人生不過是幻影,
勞碌奔波卻一場空,
積蓄財富卻不知誰來享用。
主啊,如今我盼望什麼呢?
你是我的盼望。
求你救我脫離一切過犯,
不要讓愚昧人嘲笑我。
我默然不語,一言不發,
因為我受的責罰是出於你。
10 求你不要再懲罰我,
你的責打使我幾乎喪命。
11 因為人犯罪,你管教他們,
使他們所愛的被吞噬,像被蟲蛀。
世人不過是一絲氣息。(細拉)

12 「耶和華啊,
求你垂聽我的禱告,
傾聽我的呼求,
別對我的眼淚視若無睹。
因為我在你面前只是客旅,
是寄居的,
正如我的祖先。
13 求你寬恕我,
好讓我在離世之前能重展笑容。」

Psalm 39

The Vanity of Life.

For the choir director, for [a]Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

1I said, “I will guard my ways
That I may not sin with my tongue;
I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle
While the wicked are in my presence.”
I was mute [b]and silent,
I [c]refrained even from good,
And my [d]sorrow grew worse.
My heart was hot within me,
While I was musing the fire burned;
Then I spoke with my tongue:
Lord, make me to know my end
And what is the extent of my days;
Let me know how transient I am.
“Behold, You have made my days as handbreadths,
And my lifetime as nothing in Your sight;
Surely every man [e]at his best is [f]a mere breath. [g]Selah.
“Surely every man walks about as [h]a phantom;
Surely they make an uproar for nothing;
He amasses riches and does not know who will gather them.

“And now, Lord, for what do I wait?
My hope is in You.
“Deliver me from all my transgressions;
Make me not the reproach of the foolish.
“I have become mute, I do not open my mouth,
Because it is You who have done it.
10 “Remove Your plague from me;
Because of the opposition of Your hand I am [i]perishing.
11 “With reproofs You chasten a man for iniquity;
You consume as a moth what is precious to him;
Surely every man is a mere breath. Selah.

12 “Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry;
Do not be silent at my tears;
For I am a stranger with You,
A sojourner like all my fathers.
13 “Turn Your gaze away from me, that I may [j]smile again
Before I depart and am no more.”
