Psalm 36

Psalm 36

For the director of music. A psalm of David, the servant of the Lord.

I have a message from God in my heart.
    It is about the evil ways of anyone who sins.
    They don’t have any respect for God.
They praise themselves so much
    that they can’t see their sin or hate it.
Their mouths speak words that are evil and false.
    They do not act wisely or do what is good.
Even as they lie in bed they make evil plans.
    They commit themselves to a sinful way of life.
    They never say no to what is wrong.

Lord, your love is as high as the heavens.
    Your faithful love reaches up to the skies.
Your holiness is as great as the height of the highest mountains.
    You are as honest as the oceans are deep.
Lord, you keep people and animals safe.
    How priceless your faithful love is!
    People find safety in the shadow of your wings.
They eat well because there is more than enough in your house.
    You let them drink from your river that flows with good things.
You have the fountain of life.
    We are filled with light because you give us light.

10 Keep on loving those who know you.
    Keep on doing right to those whose hearts are honest.
11 Don’t let the feet of those who are proud step on me.
    Don’t let the hands of those who are evil drive me away.
12 See how those who do evil have fallen!
    They are thrown down and can’t get up.

诗篇 36

人的邪恶与上帝的美善

耶和华的仆人大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1罪恶在恶人内心深处说话,
他们眼中毫无对上帝的畏惧。
他们自以为是,浑然不知自己的罪,
也不憎恶自己的罪。
他们满口恶言谎话,
毫无智慧和善行。
他们躺在床上盘算作恶,
执意走罪恶的道路,
无恶不作。
耶和华啊,你的慈爱广及诸天,
你的信实高达穹苍。
你的公义稳如高山,
你的判断深不可测。
耶和华啊,你保护人类,
也保护牲畜。
上帝啊,
你的慈爱无比宝贵!
世人都在你的翅膀下寻求荫庇。
你让他们饱享你殿里的美食,
畅饮你乐河中的水。
因为你是生命的泉源,
在你的光中我们得见光明。

10 求你常施慈爱给认识你的人,
以公义恩待心地正直的人。
11 别让骄傲人的脚践踏我,
别让凶恶人的手驱赶我。
12 看啊!恶人已经摔倒在地,
再也爬不起来。
