Psalm 51

Psalm 51

For the choir director: A psalm of David, regarding the time Nathan the prophet came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba.

Have mercy on me, O God,
    because of your unfailing love.
Because of your great compassion,
    blot out the stain of my sins.
Wash me clean from my guilt.
    Purify me from my sin.
For I recognize my rebellion;
    it haunts me day and night.
Against you, and you alone, have I sinned;
    I have done what is evil in your sight.
You will be proved right in what you say,
    and your judgment against me is just.[a]
For I was born a sinner—
    yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.
But you desire honesty from the womb,[b]
    teaching me wisdom even there.

Purify me from my sins,[c] and I will be clean;
    wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Oh, give me back my joy again;
    you have broken me—
    now let me rejoice.
Don’t keep looking at my sins.
    Remove the stain of my guilt.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God.
    Renew a loyal spirit within me.
11 Do not banish me from your presence,
    and don’t take your Holy Spirit[d] from me.

12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
    and make me willing to obey you.
13 Then I will teach your ways to rebels,
    and they will return to you.
14 Forgive me for shedding blood, O God who saves;
    then I will joyfully sing of your forgiveness.
15 Unseal my lips, O Lord,
    that my mouth may praise you.

16 You do not desire a sacrifice, or I would offer one.
    You do not want a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.
    You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
18 Look with favor on Zion and help her;
    rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then you will be pleased with sacrifices offered in the right spirit—
    with burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings.
    Then bulls will again be sacrificed on your altar.

诗篇 51

祈求上帝赦免

大卫与拔示芭通奸后,先知拿单来找他,他作了此诗,交给乐长。

1上帝啊,求你怜悯我,
因为你的慈爱永不改变;
求你除去我的过犯,
因为你有无限的怜悯。
求你洗净我的罪过,
清除我的罪恶。
我知道自己的过犯,
我的罪恶一直萦绕眼前。
我犯罪得罪了你,
唯独得罪了你,
做了你看为邪恶的事,
所以你对我的责备是正当的,
你对我的审判是公正的。
我生来就是个罪人,
在母腹成胎的时候就有罪。
你所喜爱的是内心的诚实,
求你使我内心有智慧。
求你用牛膝草洁净我的罪,
使我干净;
求你洗净我,使我比雪更白。
求你让我听到欢喜快乐的声音,
让我这被你压碎的骨头可以欢跳。
求你饶恕我的罪过,
除去我一切的罪恶。
10 上帝啊,
求你为我造一颗纯洁的心,
使我里面重新有正直的灵。
11 不要丢弃我,
使我离开你,
也不要从我身上收回你的圣灵。
12 求你让我重新享受蒙你拯救的喜乐,
赐我一颗乐意顺服你的心灵。
13 这样,我就能把你的法则教导罪人,
使他们归向你。
14 拯救我的上帝啊,
求你赦免我杀人流血的罪,
使我颂扬你的公义。
15 主啊,求你开我的口,
我要向你发出赞美。
16 你不喜欢祭物,
否则我会献上,
你也不喜爱燔祭。
17 你所要的祭是忧伤的心灵。
上帝啊,你必不轻看忧伤痛悔的心。
18 求你恩待锡安,重建耶路撒冷的城墙。
19 那时,你必悦纳诚心献上的祭物、燔祭和全牲燔祭,
人们必把公牛献在你的坛上。
