The Psalms  ("sarms")  (1 - 50) 詩篇/聖詠集

Psalm 1

Happy the person who avoids evil and evil entertainment.

Such a person is on the Way of Life.
People who do evil are on the Way of Death.

誰遠離邪惡和邪惡消遣是幸福的。

The heavens proclaim the glory of God,
the starry skies are the work of his hands.

The universe is a masterpiece, and so is God's law
which shines in our hearts.

The precepts of the Lord enlighten our lives each day.
The law of the Lord gives joy and wisdom to our hearts.

The decrees of the Lord are to be desired more than gold,
they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.

But  often we are unaware of  our errors.
Lord, please protect us from making mistakes.

的戒律開導我們每一天的生活。
的律法給予我們的心喜悅和智慧。

and the thoughts of my heart  be pleasing to you

Psalm 22 (Many things in this psalm happened to Jesus when he was put to death. This psalm prophesizes Jesus' death)

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
I call to you for help, but day and night you give no reply.

I am a worm and not a man.
Everyone who sees me makes fun of me.

They taunt  me: "He trusted in the Lord, why doesn't the Lord help him?"

Like water I am poured out, my bones no longer connected.
My throat is parched, my tongue sticks to my jaws.

Many evil people attack me.
They make holes in my hands and my feet.
They await my death.

They divide my clothing among them,
they throw a dice for my robe.

Yet I know Lord, that  you are good and holy.
I know how you heard the cries of our ancestors and you helped them.

It was you who took me from the womb
and entrusted me to my mother's breast.

To you I was committed from my birth,
from my mother's womb you have been my God.

Lord, I trust in you even now.
I trust you will not scorn my prayer.

Even now I praise you as my Creator.
May all the nations know and worship you.

22 (在這詩篇裏的許多事情都
發生在耶穌身上,當他被處死時。
這詩篇預言耶穌的死亡)

我的,我的,你為什麼捨棄我?
我呼喚你的幫助,但你日夜不給任何答覆。

我是蟲而不是人。 看見我的人都取笑我。

他們嘲笑我說:
他信賴,為什麼不幫助他?

我如水般傾瀉,我的骨頭都巳脫散。
我的喉嚨枯乾,我的舌頭貼在我的顎上。

許多邪惡的人攻擊我。
他們刺穿我的手腳。
他們在等待我的死亡。

他們瓜分我的衣服,他們為我的長袍抽籤。

但我知道,你是善良和聖潔的。
我知道你聽到我們祖先的呼喊你幫助他

是你使我由母腹中出生,把我交托於母懷。

自我的誕生,就已交托於你,
尚在母懷時,你已是我的

,我信賴你至現在
我相信你不會輕蔑地拒絕我的禱告。

即使現在,我稱讚你為我的造物主
願列國都認識和尊崇你。

Lord, please help people who are in big trouble right now,
especially people whose lives are in danger

,請幫助現正陷入嚴重困境的人,
尤其是生命危殆的人


Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me, to revive my drooping spirit.

He guides me along the right path. He is true to his name.
If I should walk in the valley of darkness no evil would I fear.
You are there with your crook and your staff; with these you give me comfort.

You have prepared a banquet for me in the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil. My cup is overflowing.

Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me all the days of my life. In the Lord's own house shall I dwell for ever and ever.

23

是我的牧者,我沒有想要的。
青翠的牧場是他給我歇息的地方。
他領我到幽靜的水旁,恢復我頹喪的精神。

他領我踏上正義的坦途。 他名符其實。
縱使我要走過陰森的幽谷,我不怕兇險。
你與你的牧杖和短棒在那裏;
你用這些給我舒暢

在我仇敵前,你為我擺設了筵席。
你在我的頭上塗油。 我的福杯滿溢。

幸福與慈愛必定會一生一世隨著我;
我會住在的殿裏,直到永遠。  

Thank you, Lord, for being my good shepherd

感謝你,,做我的善牧

I will turn my mind to a parable,
with the harp I will solve a problem.

The problem is: why do bad people prosper and succeed?

The answer: at the end of their lives bad people will have to face death and judgement, just like everyone else.

When we are rich, we often lack wisdom.
Wealth blinds our minds and hearts.

Let's not forgot God and his laws.
Let's try to be good and lead good lives

財富蒙蔽了我們的理智和心靈。

讓我們不要忘記和他的律法。
讓我們努力做好,過正直仁愛的生活。

Lord, please help me understand the meaning of life
