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

Psalm 39[a]

For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

I said, “I will watch my ways
    and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
    while in the presence of the wicked.”
So I remained utterly silent,
    not even saying anything good.
But my anguish increased;
    my heart grew hot within me.
While I meditated, the fire burned;
    then I spoke with my tongue:

“Show me, Lord, my life’s end
    and the number of my days;
    let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
    the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
    even those who seem secure.[b]

“Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom;
    in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth
    without knowing whose it will finally be.

“But now, Lord, what do I look for?
    My hope is in you.
Save me from all my transgressions;
    do not make me the scorn of fools.
I was silent; I would not open my mouth,
    for you are the one who has done this.
10 Remove your scourge from me;
    I am overcome by the blow of your hand.
11 When you rebuke and discipline anyone for their sin,
    you consume their wealth like a moth—
    surely everyone is but a breath.

12 “Hear my prayer, Lord,
    listen to my cry for help;
    do not be deaf to my weeping.
I dwell with you as a foreigner,
    a stranger, as all my ancestors were.
13 Look away from me, that I may enjoy life again
    before I depart and am no more.”
