የጻድቁና የክፉው ዕጣ ፈንታ

የዳዊት መዝሙር

1ዐመፀኞችን በማየት አትሸበር፤

በክፉ አድራጊዎችም አትቅና፤

2እንደ ሣር ፈጥነው ይደርቃሉና፤

እንደ ለምለም ቅጠልም ይጠወልጋሉ።

3በእግዚአብሔር ታመን፤ መልካምንም አድርግ፤

በምድሪቱ ተቀመጥ፤ ዘና ብለህ ተሰማራ።

4በእግዚአብሔር ደስ ይበልህ፤

የልብህንም መሻት ይሰጥሃል።

5መንገድህን ለእግዚአብሔር ዐደራ ስጥ፤

በእርሱ ታመን፤ እርሱም ያከናውንልሃል፤

6ጽድቅህን እንደ ብርሃን፣

ያንተን ፍትሕ እንደ ቀትር ፀሓይ ያበራዋል።

7በእግዚአብሔር ፊት ጸጥ በል፤

በትዕግሥትም ተጠባበቀው፤

መንገዱ በተቃናለት፣

ክፋትንም በሚሸርብ ሰው ልብህ አይሸበር።

8ከንዴት ተቈጠብ፤ ቍጣንም ተወው፤

ወደ እኵይ ተግባር እንዳይመራህ አትከፋ።

9ክፉ ሰዎች ይጠፋሉና፤

እግዚአብሔርን ተስፋ የሚያደርጉ ግን ምድርን ይወርሳሉ።

10ለአፍታ እንጂ፣ ክፉ ሰው አይዘልቅም፤

ስፍራውንም ብታስስ አታገኘውም።

11ገሮች ግን ምድርን ይወርሳሉ፤

በታላቅ ሰላምም ሐሤት ያደርጋሉ።

12ክፉዎች በጻድቃን ላይ ያሤራሉ፤

ጥርሳቸውንም ያፋጩባቸዋል።

13እግዚአብሔር ግን ይሥቅባቸዋል፤

ቀናቸው እንደ ደረሰ ያውቃልና።

14ድኾችንና ችግረኞችን ለመጣል፣

አካሄዳቸው ቀና የሆነውንም ለመግደል፣

ክፉዎች ሰይፋቸውን መዘዙ፤

ቀስታቸውንም ገተሩ።

15ሰይፋቸው የገዛ ልባቸውን ይወጋል፤

ቀስታቸውም ይሰበራል።

16የጻድቅ ጥቂት ሀብት፣

ከክፉዎች ብዙ ጥሪት ይበልጣል።

17የክፉዎች ክንድ ይሰበራልና፤

ጻድቃንን ግን እግዚአብሔር ደግፎ ይይዛቸዋል።

18እግዚአብሔር የንጹሐንን የሕይወት ዘመን ያውቃል፤

ርስታቸውም ለዘላለም ይኖራል።

19በክፉ ጊዜ ዐንገት አይደፉም፤

በራብ ዘመንም ይጠግባሉ።

20ክፉዎች ግን ይጠፋሉ፤

የእግዚአብሔር ጠላቶች እንደ መስክ ውበት ይሆናሉ፤

ይጠፋሉ፤ እንደ ጢስም ተነው ይጠፋሉ።

21ኀጢአተኛ ይበደራል፤ መልሶም አይከፍልም፤

ጻድቅ ግን ይቸራል።

22እግዚአብሔር የባረካቸው ምድርን ይወርሳሉ፤

እርሱ የሚረግማቸው ግን ይጠፋሉ።

23የሰው አካሄድ በእግዚአብሔር ይጸናል፤

በመንገዱ ደስ ይለዋል።

24ቢሰናከልም አይወድቅም፤

እግዚአብሔር በእጁ ደግፎ ይይዘዋልና።

25ጐልማሳ ነበርሁ፤ አሁን አርጅቻለሁ፤

ነገር ግን ጻድቅ ሲጣል፣

ዘሩም እንጀራ ሲለምን አላየሁም።

26ሁል ጊዜ ቸር ነው፤ ያበድራልም፤

ልጆቹም የተባረኩ ይሆናሉ።

27ከክፉ ራቅ፤ መልካሙንም አድርግ፤

ለዘላለምም ትኖራለህ።

28እግዚአብሔር ፍትሕን ይወዳልና፤

ታማኞቹንም አይጥልም፤

ለዘላለምም ይጠብቃቸዋል፤

የኀጢአተኛው ዘር ግን ይጠፋል።

29ጻድቃን ምድርን ይወርሳሉ፤

በእርሷም ለዘላለም ይኖራሉ።

30የጻድቅ አፍ ጥበብን ይናገራል፤

አንደበቱም ፍትሐዊ ነገር ያወራል።

31የአምላኩ ሕግ በልቡ አለ፤

አካሄዱም አይወላገድም።

32ክፉዎች ጻድቁን ይከታተሉታል፤

ሊገድሉትም ይሻሉ።

33እግዚአብሔር ግን በእጃቸው አይጥለውም፤

ፍርድ ፊት ሲቀርብም አሳልፎ አይሰጠውም።

34እግዚአብሔርን ደጅ ጥና፤

መንገዱንም ጠብቅ፤

ምድሪቱን ትወርስ ዘንድ ከፍ ከፍ ያደርግሃል፤

ክፉዎችም ሲጠፉ ታያለህ።

35ክፉና ጨካኙን ሰው፣

እንደ ሊባኖስ ዝግባ ለምልሞ አየሁት፤

36ዳግመኛ በዚያ ሳልፍ፣ እነሆ፣ በቦታው አልነበረም፤

ብፈልገውም አልተገኘም።

37ንጹሐንን ልብ በል፤ ቅኑንም አስተውል፤

የሰላም ሰው ተስፋ አለውና።37፥37 ወይም ዘር ይወጣለታል

38ኀጢአተኞች ግን በአንድነት ይጠፋሉ፤

የክፉዎችም ዘር37፥38 ወይም ትውልድ ይወገዳል።

39የጻድቃን ድነት ከእግዚአብሔር ዘንድ ነው፤

በመከራ ጊዜም መጠጊያቸው እርሱ ነው።

40እግዚአብሔር ይረዳቸዋል፤

ይታደጋቸዋልም፤

ከክፉዎች እጅ ነጥቆ ያወጣቸዋል፤

እርሱን መጠጊያ አድርገዋልና ያድናቸዋል።

Psalms 37:1-40

Psalm 37This psalm is an acrostic poem, the stanzas of which begin with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet.

Of David.

1Do not fret because of those who are evil

or be envious of those who do wrong;

2for like the grass they will soon wither,

like green plants they will soon die away.

3Trust in the Lord and do good;

dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

4Take delight in the Lord,

and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5Commit your way to the Lord;

trust in him and he will do this:

6he will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,

your vindication like the noonday sun.

7Be still before the Lord

and wait patiently for him;

do not fret when people succeed in their ways,

when they carry out their wicked schemes.

8Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;

do not fret – it leads only to evil.

9For those who are evil will be destroyed,

but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

10A little while, and the wicked will be no more;

though you look for them, they will not be found.

11But the meek will inherit the land

and enjoy peace and prosperity.

12The wicked plot against the righteous

and gnash their teeth at them;

13but the Lord laughs at the wicked,

for he knows their day is coming.

14The wicked draw the sword

and bend the bow

to bring down the poor and needy,

to slay those whose ways are upright.

15But their swords will pierce their own hearts,

and their bows will be broken.

16Better the little that the righteous have

than the wealth of many wicked;

17for the power of the wicked will be broken,

but the Lord upholds the righteous.

18The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care,

and their inheritance will endure for ever.

19In times of disaster they will not wither;

in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.

20But the wicked will perish:

though the Lord’s enemies are like the flowers of the field,

they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke.

21The wicked borrow and do not repay,

but the righteous give generously;

22those the Lord blesses will inherit the land,

but those he curses will be destroyed.

23The Lord makes firm the steps

of the one who delights in him;

24though he may stumble, he will not fall,

for the Lord upholds him with his hand.

25I was young and now I am old,

yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken

or their children begging bread.

26They are always generous and lend freely;

their children will be a blessing.37:26 Or freely; / the names of their children will be used in blessings (see Gen. 48:20); or freely; / others will see that their children are blessed

27Turn from evil and do good;

then you will dwell in the land for ever.

28For the Lord loves the just

and will not forsake his faithful ones.

Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed37:28 See Septuagint; Hebrew They will be protected for ever;

the offspring of the wicked will perish.

29The righteous will inherit the land

and dwell in it for ever.

30The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom,

and their tongues speak what is just.

31The law of their God is in their hearts;

their feet do not slip.

32The wicked lie in wait for the righteous,

intent on putting them to death;

33but the Lord will not leave them in the power of the wicked

or let them be condemned when brought to trial.

34Hope in the Lord

and keep his way.

He will exalt you to inherit the land;

when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it.

35I have seen a wicked and ruthless man

flourishing like a luxuriant native tree,

36but he soon passed away and was no more;

though I looked for him, he could not be found.

37Consider the blameless, observe the upright;

a future awaits those who seek peace.37:37 Or upright; / those who seek peace will have posterity

38But all sinners will be destroyed;

there will be no future37:38 Or posterity for the wicked.

39The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;

he is their stronghold in time of trouble.

40The Lord helps them and delivers them;

he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,

because they take refuge in him.
