Psalm 73

BOOK 3

The End of the Wicked Contrasted with That of the Righteous.

A Psalm of Asaph.

1Surely God is good to Israel,
To those who are pure in heart!
But as for me, my feet came close to stumbling,
My steps [a]had almost slipped.
For I was envious of the [b]arrogant
As I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
For there are no pains in their death,
And their [c]body is fat.
They are not [d]in trouble as other [e]men,
Nor are they plagued [f]like mankind.
Therefore pride is their necklace;
The garment of violence covers them.
Their eye [g]bulges from fatness;
The imaginations of their heart [h]run riot.
They mock and [i]wickedly speak of oppression;
They speak from on high.
They have set their mouth [j]against the heavens,
And their tongue [k]parades through the earth.

10 Therefore [l]his people return to this place,
And waters of abundance are [m]drunk by them.
11 They say, “How does God know?
And is there knowledge [n]with the Most High?”
12 Behold, these are the wicked;
And always at ease, they have increased in wealth.
13 Surely in vain I have [o]kept my heart pure
And washed my hands in innocence;
14 For I have been stricken all day long
And [p]chastened every morning.

15 If I had said, “I will speak thus,”
Behold, I would have betrayed the generation of Your children.
16 When I pondered to understand this,
It was [q]troublesome in my sight
17 Until I came into the [r]sanctuary of God;
Then I perceived their end.
18 Surely You set them in slippery places;
You cast them down to [s]destruction.
19 How they are [t]destroyed in a moment!
They are utterly swept away by sudden terrors!
20 Like a dream when one awakes,
O Lord, when aroused, You will despise their [u]form.

21 When my heart was embittered
And I was pierced [v]within,
22 Then I was senseless and ignorant;
I was like [w]a beast [x]before You.
23 Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You have taken hold of my right hand.
24 With Your counsel You will guide me,
And afterward receive me [y]to glory.

25 Whom have I in heaven but You?
And [z]besides You, I desire nothing on earth.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
But God is the [aa]strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27 For, behold, those who are far from You will perish;
You have [ab]destroyed all those who [ac]are unfaithful to You.
28 But as for me, the nearness of God is my good;
I have made the Lord [ad]God my refuge,
That I may tell of all Your works.

诗篇 73

卷三:诗篇73—89

上帝的公正审判

亚萨的诗。

1上帝实在善待以色列人,
恩待那些内心纯洁的人。
我却身陷险地,
几乎失脚跌倒。
我看见狂傲的恶人亨通就心怀不平。
他们一生平顺,健康强壮。
他们不像别人受苦,
不像世人遭难。
他们把骄傲作项链戴在颈上,
把暴力作外袍裹在身上。
他们胖得眼睛凸出,
心中充满罪恶。
他们讥讽嘲笑,言语恶毒,
狂妄地以暴力相威胁。
他们亵渎上天,诋毁大地。
10 上帝的子民也跟随他们,
听从他们的话。
11 他们说:
“上帝怎能知道?
至高者会察觉吗?”
12 看这些恶人,
他们总是生活安逸,财富日增。
13 我洁身自爱,保持清白,
实属徒然。
14 我天天遭灾,日日受苦。
15 要是我这样说,
我就是背叛了你的子民。
16 我想明白这一切,
却百思不得其解。
17 直到我进入你的圣所,
才明白他们的结局。
18 你把他们放在容易滑倒的地方,
使他们落入毁灭中。
19 他们顷刻间被毁灭,
在恐怖中彻底灭亡。
20 他们不过是人醒来后的一场梦。
主啊,你一行动,
他们必灰飞烟灭。
21 我曾感到悲伤,心如刀绞。
22 我当时愚昧无知,
在你面前如同畜类。
23 然而,我一直和你在一起,
你牵着我的手引导我。
24 你以谆谆教诲指引我,
以后必接我到荣耀中。
25 除你以外,在天上我还有谁?
除你以外,在地上我别无爱慕。
26 尽管我身心俱衰,
上帝永远是我心中的力量,
永远属于我。
27 那些远离你的人必灭亡,
你必灭绝不忠于你的人。
28 对于我,到上帝面前是何等美好。
我以主耶和华为我的避难所,
并宣扬祂的一切作为。
