Psalm 52

Psalm 52

For the director of music. A maskil of David when Doeg, who was from Edom, had gone to Saul. Doeg had told Saul, “David has gone to the house of Ahimelek.”

You think you are such a big, strong man!
    Why do you brag about the evil things you’ve done?
    You are a dishonor to God all the time.
You plan ways to destroy others.
    Your tongue is like a blade that has a sharp edge.
    You are always telling lies.
You love evil instead of good.
    You would rather lie than tell the truth.
    You love to harm others with your words, you liar!

So God will destroy you forever.
    He will grab you and pluck you from your tent.
    He will remove you from this life.
Those who do what is right will see it and learn a lesson from it.
    They will laugh at you and say,
“Just look at this fellow!
    He didn’t depend on God for his safety.
He put his trust in all his wealth.
    He grew strong by destroying others!”

But I am like a healthy olive tree.
    My roots are deep in the house of God.
I trust in your faithful love
    for ever and ever.
I will praise you forever for what you have done.
    I will praise you when I’m with your faithful people.
    I will put my hope in you because you are good.

诗篇 52

上帝的审判和慈爱

以东人多益去告诉扫罗:“大卫到了亚希米勒家。”那时大卫作了这首训诲诗,交给乐长。

1勇士啊,你为何以作恶为荣?
上帝的慈爱永远长存。
你这诡诈的人啊,
舌头利如剃刀,
尽是害人的奸计。
你喜爱邪恶,不爱良善;
你喜爱虚谎,不爱真理。(细拉)
你有诡诈的舌头,
好说恶言恶语。
上帝必永远毁灭你,
祂必抓住你,
把你从家里拉出来,
从活人之地铲除。(细拉)
义人看见必心生敬畏,
他们必嘲笑说:
“看啊,这就是不依靠上帝的人,
他只倚仗自己的财富和以残暴手段获得的权势。”
我就像上帝殿中的一棵橄榄树,枝繁叶茂,
我永永远远信靠上帝的慈爱。
上帝啊,
我要永远赞美你的作为。
我要在你忠心的子民面前仰望你美善的名。
