|For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.|
1 O LORD, You have searched me and known me,
2 You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
3 You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
5 You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.
7 Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me,"
Even the night shall be light about me;
12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother's womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
|詩 Psalm 139:13 我的肺腑是祢所造的。我在母腹中，祢已覆庇我。 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb.|
|詩人大衛寫這篇詩，似乎他曾經想過躲避神的面，可是讚美神，我們的神是全知全在的，萬事萬物連同我們的心思意念在祂面前都是敞開的。亞當夏娃犯罪後躲在無花果樹後面，終究還是要面對神；世人都犯了罪，本是硫磺火湖的材料，活在世上沒有指望，但讚美神，耶穌來，為要尋找拯救失喪的人，因為神不願一人沉淪，乃願人人得救。祂說過，若是一百隻羊裏面有一隻走迷了，祂也要放下那九十九隻，把那一隻給找回來:讚美神，我的牧人認得我聲音，即使走到天涯海角，祂還是會把我們帶回來；讚美神，祂的眼目遍察全地，即使在暗中所做的事，也不能隱瞞祂。祂造我們，我們的日子祂都知道；他愛我們，連我們的頭髮祂都數過，所以讚美神，祂按我們的本相接納我們，並要賜給我們更豐盛的生命！||When the psalmist David wrote this psalm, he seems to have thought of fleeing from God's presence, but praise God, our God is omniscient and omnipresent, all things including our thoughts are open in front of Him. After Adam and Eve sinned, they hid themselves behind a fig tree, but sooner or later they had to confront God; likewise all have sinned, were originally destined for the lake of fire and brimstone, living in the world without hope, but praise God, Jesus came to seek and to save those that are lost, for God does not want any to perish but that all should come to repentance. He said, if one out of a hundred sheep is lost, He would put down the 99 to find the lost one: praise God, my shepherd knows my voice, He is going to bring us back even if we are at the ends of the world; praise God, His eyes run to and fro throughout the whole earth, nothing could be concealed from Him, even things done in secret. He formed us, and knows our days; He loves us, even counted our hairs, therefore praise God, He receives us in our current state, and gives us more abundant life!|
