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!

诗篇 32

认罪与赦免

大卫的诗。

1过犯得赦免、罪恶被饶恕的人有福了!
心里没有诡诈、
不被耶和华算为有罪的人有福了!
我默然不语、拒绝认罪的时候,
就因整日哀叹而身心疲惫。
你昼夜管教我,
我的精力耗尽,
如水在盛夏枯竭。(细拉)

我向你承认自己的罪,
不再隐瞒自己的恶。
我说:“我要向耶和华认罪。”
你就赦免了我。(细拉)

因此,趁着还能寻求你的时候,
凡敬虔的人都当向你祷告;
洪水泛滥时,就没有机会了。
你是我的藏身之所,
你保护我免遭危难,
用得胜的凯歌四面环绕我。(细拉)

耶和华说:“我要教导你,
引领你走正路;
我要劝导你,看顾你。
不要像无知的骡马,
不用嚼环辔头就不驯服。”

10 恶人必多遭祸患,
耶和华的慈爱必环绕信靠祂的人。
11 义人啊,
你们要靠耶和华欢喜快乐;
心地正直的人啊,
你们都要欢呼。
