聖詠集 Psalms
1天主的人梅瑟的祈禱。吾主,從永遠到永遠,你作了我們的靠山。1Lord, you have been our refuge through all generations.
2群山尚未形成,大地寰球尚未生出,從永遠直到永遠,你就已經是天主。2Before the mountains were formed, before you made the earth and the world, from eternity to eternity - you are God.
3你命世人們仍歸灰塵,說:歸來,亞當的子孫們!3You turn humans back to dust, saying, "Return, O mortals!"
4因為千年在你的眼前,好像是剛過去的昨天,好像夜裡的一更時間。4A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has passed, or like a watch in the night.
5你消除他們,使他們有如清晨一覺,又使他們有如剛出生的嫩苗青草,5You sow them in their time, at dawn they peep out.
6早晨雖然旺盛繁茂,傍晚割去即形枯槁。6In the morning they blossom, but the flower fades and withers in the evening.
7這樣,我們因了你的怒火,而消耗殆盡,我們因了你的怒忿,而昏厥不振。7Your fury consumes us like fire, and we are helpless before your anger.
8你把我們的罪過全在你的面前擺出,在你儀容的光輝前,我們的隱惡全露。8Our evils lie before you who scrutinize our hidden sins.
9我們的日月,都在你義怒中消逝,我們的年歲,也不過像一聲嘆息。9Our days pass away in your wrath; our years are gone in no time.
10我們的壽數,不外七十春秋,若是強壯,也不過八十寒暑;但多半還是充滿勞苦與空虛,因轉眼即逝,我們也如飛而去。10Seventy years to our life or eighty if we are strong, yet most of them are sorrow and trouble; speeding by, they sweep us along.
11誰能體會你怒憤的威力,誰能覺察你怒火的可畏?11Who knows the extent of your anger? Who has seen the end of your wrath?
12求你教導我們詳數年歲,使我們達到內心的智慧。12So make us know the shortness of our life, that we may gain wisdom of heart.
13上主,求你歸來,尚待何時?求你快來憐恤你的僕役!13How long will you be angry, O Lord? Have mercy on your servant.
14使我們清晨即飽享你的慈愛,讓我們能歡欣鼓舞天天愉快!14Fill us at daybreak with your goodness, that we may be glad all our days.
15你磨難我們,使我們受苦多少日子,求你也使我們多少年月時日歡喜。15Make joy endure as the misery did, and the years in which we were afflicted.
16求使你的僕人得見你的化工,給他們的子孫彰顯你的尊榮。16Let your work be seen by your servants and your glorious power by their children.
17願上主我們的天主給我們廣施仁風,求你促使我們所行的工作順利成功,求你促使我們所行的工作順利成功。17May the sweetness of the Lord be upon us; may he prosper the work of our hands.
