Psalm 36

Psalm 36[a]

For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord.

I have a message from God in my heart
    concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:[b]
There is no fear of God
    before their eyes.

In their own eyes they flatter themselves
    too much to detect or hate their sin.
The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful;
    they fail to act wisely or do good.
Even on their beds they plot evil;
    they commit themselves to a sinful course
    and do not reject what is wrong.

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
    your justice like the great deep.
    You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
    People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house;
    you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
    in your light we see light.

10 Continue your love to those who know you,
    your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 May the foot of the proud not come against me,
    nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 See how the evildoers lie fallen—
    thrown down, not able to rise!

詩篇 36

人的邪惡與上帝的美善

耶和華的僕人大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1罪惡在惡人內心深處說話,
他們眼中毫無對上帝的畏懼。
他們自以為是,渾然不知自己的罪,
也不憎惡自己的罪。
他們滿口惡言謊話,
毫無智慧和善行。
他們躺在床上盤算作惡,
執意走罪惡的道路,
無惡不作。
耶和華啊,你的慈愛廣及諸天,
你的信實高達穹蒼。
你的公義穩如高山,
你的判斷深不可測。
耶和華啊,你保護人類,
也保護牲畜。
上帝啊,
你的慈愛無比寶貴!
世人都在你的翅膀下尋求蔭庇。
你讓他們飽享你殿裡的美食,
暢飲你樂河中的水。
因為你是生命的泉源,
在你的光中我們得見光明。

10 求你常施慈愛給認識你的人,
以公義恩待心地正直的人。
11 別讓驕傲人的腳踐踏我,
別讓兇惡人的手驅趕我。
12 看啊!惡人已經摔倒在地,
再也爬不起來。
