圣咏集 Psalms
1登圣殿歌,撒罗满作。若不是上主兴工建屋,建筑的人是徒然劳苦;若不是上主在护守城堡,守城的人白白儆醒护守。1Unless the Lord builds the house, in vain do its builders labor. Unless the Lord guards the city, in vain does the guard stay awake.
2你们极早起床尽属徒然,每夜坐至深更图谋打算,为了求食经过多少辛酸;唯独天主赐所爱者安眠。2It is in vain that you rise early and stay up late, putting off your rest, toiling for your hard-earned bread; God gives it to his loved ones, and they sleep.
3的确子女全是上主的赐予,胎儿也全是他的报酬。3Sons are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward.
4年轻少壮所生的子嗣,有如勇士手中的箭矢。4Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are the sons of one's youth.
5装满自己箭囊的人,真有福祺,城门前与敌人争辩,不受羞耻。5Blessed is the man who has filled his quiver with arrows of this kind, their foes will not silence them when they contend in court.
