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.

詩篇 52

上帝的審判和慈愛

以東人多益去告訴掃羅:「大衛到了亞希米勒家。」那時大衛作了這首訓誨詩,交給樂長。

1勇士啊,你為何以作惡為榮?
上帝的慈愛永遠長存。
你這詭詐的人啊,
舌頭利如剃刀,
盡是害人的奸計。
你喜愛邪惡,不愛良善;
你喜愛虛謊,不愛真理。(細拉)
你有詭詐的舌頭,
好說惡言惡語。
上帝必永遠毀滅你,
祂必抓住你,
把你從家裡拉出來,
從活人之地剷除。(細拉)
義人看見必心生敬畏,
他們必嘲笑說:
「看啊,這就是不依靠上帝的人,
他只倚仗自己的財富和以殘暴手段獲得的權勢。」
我就像上帝殿中的一棵橄欖樹,枝繁葉茂,
我永永遠遠信靠上帝的慈愛。
上帝啊,
我要永遠讚美你的作為。
我要在你忠心的子民面前仰望你美善的名。
