活出美好 Chapter 32 Living with Enthusiasm

Psa 32:1  (大衛的訓誨詩。)得赦免其過、遮蓋其罪的,這人是有福的!
Psa 32:2  凡心裡沒有詭詐、耶和華不算為有罪的,這人是有福的!
Psa 32:3  我閉口不認罪的時候,因終日唉哼而骨頭枯乾。
Psa 32:4  黑夜白日,你的手在我身上沉重;我的精液耗盡,如同夏天的乾旱。(細拉)
Psa 32:5  我向你陳明我的罪,不隱瞞我的惡。我說:我要向耶和華承認我的過犯,你就赦免我的罪惡。(細拉)
Psa 32:6  為此,凡虔誠人都當趁你可尋找的時候禱告你;大水泛溢的時候,必不能到他那裡。
Psa 32:7  你是我藏身之處;你必保佑我脫離苦難,以得救的樂歌四面環繞我。(細拉)
Psa 32:8  我要教導你,指示你當行的路;我要定睛在你身上勸戒你。
Psa 32:9  你不可像那無知的騾馬,必用嚼環轡頭勒住他;不然,就不能馴服。
Psa 32:10  惡人必多受苦楚;惟獨倚靠耶和華的必有慈愛四面環繞他。
Psa 32:11  你們義人應當靠耶和華歡喜快樂;你們心裡正直的人都當歡呼。

Psalm 32

Of David. A maskil. [a]
 1 Blessed is he
       whose transgressions are forgiven,
       whose sins are covered.

 2 Blessed is the man
       whose sin the LORD does not count against him
       and in whose spirit is no deceit.

 3 When I kept silent,
       my bones wasted away
       through my groaning all day long.

 4 For day and night
       your hand was heavy upon me;
       my strength was sapped
       as in the heat of summer.
       Selah

 5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you
       and did not cover up my iniquity.
       I said, "I will confess
       my transgressions to the LORD "—
       and you forgave
       the guilt of my sin.
       Selah

 6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you
       while you may be found;
       surely when the mighty waters rise,
       they will not reach him.

 7 You are my hiding place;
       you will protect me from trouble
       and surround me with songs of deliverance.
       Selah

 8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
       I will counsel you and watch over you.

 9 Do not be like the horse or the mule,
       which have no understanding
       but must be controlled by bit and bridle
       or they will not come to you.

 10 Many are the woes of the wicked,
       but the LORD's unfailing love
       surrounds the man who trusts in him.

 11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous;
       sing, all you who are upright in heart!

  1. Psalm 32:1 Title: Probably a literary or musical term

 


本詩的背景與第五十一篇相同,是大衛犯姦淫罪之後,向神認罪悔改的詩篇。



大衛深深痛悔自己的罪,他看見罪所產生的嚴重後果何等可怕,慶幸的是,神以「赦免」、「遮蓋」和「不算」三種方法來恩待他(1〜2節),大衛嘗了赦罪之福後,發現自己認罪前後的心情,真有天壤之別。因此:

1.他一方面痛恨自己不早認罪,一方面仍慶幸自己及時認罪。為此他奉勸人若偶而失足,要及時悔改,否則到「大水泛濫之時」(6節)(指審判的日子,或罪惡泛濫至無可收拾之時),悔之已晚。

2.大衛重獲神的庇護,喜樂地唱出得救的樂歌─「你是我藏身之處」(7節)。原本是聖潔公義、審判罪惡的神,竟成了罪人的「藏身之處」,真是不可思議!因著神的保守與環繞,罪惡、仇敵不能再追趕,這是神為犯罪之人所設的「逃城」。



但是8節以後,語氣卻由歡呼赦罪之樂,突然轉變為從神來的警告,神要教導祂的兒女走在正道。神如何教導呢?神要「定睛在他的身上勸戒他」,世上作 兒女的,有的只需父母眼睛一瞥,就知遵命而行。有的卻必須大聲叱責,甚至掌擊鞭打才能就範屈從。其實一般父母並不喜歡用強烈手段教導兒女,神也是如此,所 以祂提醒我們,「不可像無知的驢馬」,以致逼使神用「嚼環」和「轡頭」來使我們馴服。



神應許:「我要教導你,指示你當行的路」(8節)。試想,對一個常迷路、犯錯的人而言,有這樣一位全能、全知的神引導,不用再重覆地犯錯、認罪,不用再走冤枉路,這是何等寶貴的事,怎能不注意聽從神的教導呢!

我留意神的勸戒,及時悔改嗎?或是仍像無知的驢馬呢?

親愛的主,當我偏行己路,請你提醒我,勸戒我,甚至以嚼環、轡頭勒住我,不要任憑我,使我重享赦罪之福,歡唱得救的樂歌
