聖詠集 Psalms
1萬邦為什麼囂張,眾民為什麼妄想?1Why do the nations conspire? Why do the peoples plot in vain?
2世上列王群集一堂,諸侯畢至聚首相商,反抗上主,反抗他的受傅者:2The kings of the earth brace themselves and the rulers together take their stand against the Lord and his anointed.
3「來!我們掙斷他們的綑綁,我們擺脫他們的繩韁!」3They say, "Let us break their bonds! Let us cast away their chains!"
4坐於天上者在冷笑,我主對他們在熱嘲。4The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord looks at them in derision.
5在震怒中對他們發言,在氣焰中對他們喝道:5Then in anger he speaks to them, terrifying them in the fury of his wrath:
6「我已祝聖我的君王,在熙雍我的聖山上。」6"Behold the king I have installed, in Zion, upon my holy hill!"
7我要傳報上主的聖旨:上主對我說:「你是我的兒子,我今日生了你。」7I will proclaim the decree of the Lord. He said to me: "You are my son. This day I have begotten you.
8你向我請求,我必將萬民賜你作產業,我必將八極賜你作領地。8Ask of me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, the ends of the earth for your possession.
9你必以鐵杖將他們粉碎,就如同打破陶匠的瓦器。9You shall rule them with iron scepter and shatter them as a potter's vase."
10眾王!你們現在應當自覺,大地掌權者!你們應受教:10Now therefore, learn wisdom, O kings; be warned, O rulers of the earth.
11應以敬畏之情事奉上主,戰戰兢兢向他跪拜叩首;11Serve the Lord with fear and fall at his feet; lest he be angry and you perish when his anger suddenly flares. Blessed are all who take refuge in him!
