Psalm 51

Psalm 51[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba.

Have mercy on me, O God,
    according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
    blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
    and cleanse me from my sin.

For I know my transgressions,
    and my sin is always before me.
Against you, you only, have I sinned
    and done what is evil in your sight;
so you are right in your verdict
    and justified when you judge.
Surely I was sinful at birth,
    sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
    you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
    wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and gladness;
    let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
Hide your face from my sins
    and blot out all my iniquity.

10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
    and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from your presence
    or take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
    and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
    so that sinners will turn back to you.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
    you who are God my Savior,
    and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.
15 Open my lips, Lord,
    and my mouth will declare your praise.
16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
    you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
17 My sacrifice, O God, is[b] a broken spirit;
    a broken and contrite heart
    you, God, will not despise.

18 May it please you to prosper Zion,
    to build up the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous,
    in burnt offerings offered whole;
    then bulls will be offered on your altar.

詩篇 51

祈求上帝赦免

大衛與拔示芭通姦後,先知拿單來找他,他作了此詩,交給樂長。

1上帝啊,求你憐憫我,
因為你的慈愛永不改變;
求你除去我的過犯,
因為你有無限的憐憫。
求你洗淨我的罪過,
清除我的罪惡。
我知道自己的過犯,
我的罪惡一直縈繞眼前。
我犯罪得罪了你,
唯獨得罪了你,
做了你看為邪惡的事,
所以你對我的責備是正當的,
你對我的審判是公正的。
我生來就是個罪人,
在母腹成胎的時候就有罪。
你所喜愛的是內心的誠實,
求你使我內心有智慧。
求你用牛膝草潔淨我的罪,
使我乾淨;
求你洗淨我,使我比雪更白。
求你讓我聽到歡喜快樂的聲音,
讓我這被你壓碎的骨頭可以歡跳。
求你饒恕我的罪過,
除去我一切的罪惡。
10 上帝啊,
求你為我造一顆純潔的心,
使我裡面重新有正直的靈。
11 不要丟棄我,
使我離開你,
也不要從我身上收回你的聖靈。
12 求你讓我重新享受蒙你拯救的喜樂,
賜我一顆樂意順服你的心靈。
13 這樣,我就能把你的法則教導罪人,
使他們歸向你。
14 拯救我的上帝啊,
求你赦免我殺人流血的罪,
使我頌揚你的公義。
15 主啊,求你開我的口,
我要向你發出讚美。
16 你不喜歡祭物,
否則我會獻上,
你也不喜愛燔祭。
17 你所要的祭是憂傷的心靈。
上帝啊,你必不輕看憂傷痛悔的心。
18 求你恩待錫安,重建耶路撒冷的城牆。
19 那時,你必悅納誠心獻上的祭物、燔祭和全牲燔祭,
人們必把公牛獻在你的壇上。
