圣咏集 Psalms
1阿撒夫的诗歌。天主待正直的人多么美善,上主对心里洁净的人亦然!1Surely God is good to Israel, I mean, to the clean of heart.
2我的脚几乎要跌跤,我的脚险些要滑倒,2But, as for me, I almost stumbled, I nearly lost my foothold,
3因我看见恶人安宁幸福,就对骄横的人心生嫉妒。3for I was envious of the arrogant, when I saw the wicked prosper.
4原来他们总没有受过重创,所以他们的身体健康肥胖;4For they suffer no pain; they are strong and sound of body,
5他们没有别人所受的忧伤,也没有常人所遭遇的灾殃。5free from troubles common to mortals; they are not stricken by human ills.
6故此,骄傲缠绕他们相似项链,残暴遮蔽他们有如衣衫。6That is why pride becomes their necklace, and violence the robe that covers them.
7他们的邪恶,出自肥胖的心田,让他们自己的恶念,肆意氾滥。7Evil comes from their callous hearts, boundless evil from their corrupt minds.
8他们讥讽嘲弄,言恶语狂,他们欺压恐吓蛮横倔强;8They scoff and speak with malice, and they threaten arrogantly.
9用自己的口亵渎上天,以自己的舌诋毁尘寰。9Their mouths defy the heavens and their tongues dictate on earth.
10因此我的百姓向他们依归,满口啜饮由他们供给的水,10People, therefore, look up to them because they are well-watered.
11且说:天主岂能知悉,难道至高者能理会?11"Does God see?" they say. "Has the Most High some knowledge of this?
12看,这些人为非作歹,常享平安,积存钱财,12Such are the wicked - always carefree while they rake in riches.
13的确,我白白清心寡欲,我徒然洗手表白无辜。13In vain have I kept my heart clean and washed my hands in innocence
14我时时遭受鞭击,也天天遇到责斥。14if all day long I am stricken and punished every morning."
15我若想:我说话若与他们相同,就等于放弃与你子民为同宗。15Had I spoken like this, I would not be acting as one of your children.
16我愈设法了解这事,我愈觉得神妙莫测。16Although I tried to understand this, it was difficult for me,
17直到我接近天主的奥妙,直到我注意他们的结果。17until I entered the secrets of God. Then I perceived their approaching doom.
18你的确将他们置于坡路,让他们滑倒于消灭之途。18You place them on slippery ground and make them fall into the pit.
19他们瞬息之间变得如此悽凉,他们因受惊过度而从此灭亡。19How suddenly they are destroyed, completely swept away in terror!
20上主,世人睡醒,怎样了解梦境;你醒时,也怎样看他们的幻影。20As one awakes from a nightmare, so when you arise, O Lord, you shake them off like a dream.
21几时我的心灵遭受酸苦,刺痛也会进入我的肺腑。21When my heart was embittered, and my spirit distraught
22原来是我愚昧毫无理性,在你面前竟然好像畜牲。22it was folly, not wisdom; I did not know you better than the beasts.
23但以后,我要常与你同处,你已经握住了我的右手。23Yet I am always with you; you hold my right hand,
24你要以你的圣训来领导我,最后引我进入你的荣耀。24you guide me on the way you chose and your Glory brings me along.
25在天上除你以外,为我还能有谁?在地上除你以外,为我一无所喜。25I have no one in heaven but you; on earth I desire nothing but you.
26我的肉身和我的心灵,虽巳憔瘁;天主却永是我心的福分和磐石。26My flesh and my heart waste away for you, O God, O my rock, you are mine forever.
27看,远离你的人必将趋于沉沦。你必消灭一切背弃你的人民。27Those who abandon you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
28亲近天主对我是多么的美好:只有上主天主是我的避难所。28But as for me, my joy is to be near God; I have made the Lord my refuge, and I will proclaim all his works.
