I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways are before thee.

119:169 耶和华阿,愿我的呼吁达到你面前,照你的话赐我悟性。

Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word.

119:170 愿我的恳求达到你面前,照你的话搭救我。

Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.

119:171 愿我的嘴发出赞美的话。因为你将律例教训我。

My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes.

119:172 愿我的舌头歌唱你的话。因你一切的命令尽都公义。

My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

119:173 愿你用手帮助我。因我拣选了你的训词。

Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.

119:174 耶和华阿,我切慕你的救恩。你的律法也是我所喜爱的。

I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.

119:175 愿我的性命存活,得以赞美你。愿你的典章帮助我。

Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.

119:176 我如亡羊走迷了路。求你寻梢仆人。因我不忘记你的命令。

I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.


119篇 这是最长的诗篇,也是圣经中最长的一章。它可能是以斯拉在圣殿重建之后写的(参拉6:14, 15),使我们不断默想神的话语之美,以及帮助我们如何出污泥而不染,并在信心中成长。第119篇分为22个布局严谨的部分,每一部分均以顺序的希伯来字母开始,该部分每一节又都用同一个字母起首。几乎每节都提到了神的话。这样的重复结构在希伯来文化中很常见。当时的以色列百姓不像我们,他们没有自己的圣经,故藉此记颂神的话语,口传下去。这首诗的结构使人容易记忆。请记住,神的话语──圣经是我们过纯洁生活的惟一绝对引导。

119:9 我们快要淹没在不洁净的海洋之中,到处都在引诱我们过不洁净的生活。诗人提的问题也使我们感到困惑:我们如何能在这污秽的环境中过洁净的生活?靠自己是完全不可能的。我们必须有个能够提点我们的智囊,并有比我们周围的诱惑力更强大的力量。我们在哪里能找到这样的智慧和力量呢?通过读圣经和照著上面说的去做就可以。

119:11 将神的话语藏在心中就是在制止罪恶。这是激励我们去背诵圣经的经句。但光靠背诵经文是不能使我们不犯罪的,我们必须让神的话语活在我们的生活里面,使它成为我们行为的重要指南。

119:12-24 我们许多人都讨厌规则,认为它们太严厉了,限制我们做想要做的事情。乍一听,这位诗人挺奇怪,竟然说“我喜悦你的法度,如同喜悦一切的财物”。但神的律法是要释放我们,并且让我们做神要我们做的事。它们阻止我们做那些会毁坏我们的事情,并保守我们得到最好的东西。神的引导帮助我们遵循神的道路,避免走向毁灭。

119:19 诗人说他是个“在地上寄居的”,所以需要引导。长途旅行很需要一张地图和一位向导。当我们走过人生旅程的时候,圣经就应成为我们的指路地图,指出哪里是安全的路线、要避免的障碍和我们最终的目的地。我们必须认识到自己是地上的旅行者,需要学习神的地图来认路。如果我们忽视了地图的话,我们将在人生中迷失方向。

119:27-28 我们的生活被众多讲规则的书搅得毫无头绪,而那些作者从未帮助过我们遵守这些规则。但神不是这样,这就是圣经的独特之处。神不仅为我们提供了规则和指南,而且每天亲自同我们在一起,给我们力量来按照神的规则生活。我们要做的就是接纳神,并回应神的引导。

119:36 在今天的世界里,人们大多数的时间是花在贪求经济收益上。金钱代表著权力、影响力和成功。对于许多人来说,金钱就是神。他们不想其他的了。不错,金钱是可以买到些舒适。但比财富更宝贵的是认识神,因为那不是属世的而是属天的财富(参路12:33)。我们不管自己的经济情况如何,都要做神让我们做的一切。就让这位诗人的祷告成为我们自己的祷告,求神把我们的心从多多赚钱转向神的法度;从长远来看,这对我们是有好处的。

119:44-46 诗人谈到了要守律法,但有行为选择的自由。这与我们通常所期望的相反。顺服神的律法并不是限制我们,而是将我们释放以成为合神要求的人。寻求神的救赎和赦免常常能把我们从罪恶和由此引起的负罪感中释放出来。遵循神的生活方式,就是让神来实现他在我们生活上的计划。

119:97-104 神的话语使我们聪明起来,比我们的敌人和一切忽视它的教师都要聪明。真正的智慧超过了知识;它在生命转化的方面是非常实用的。智商高和有经验的人并不一定就聪明。智慧是来自神给我们的教导。

119:105 夜间在丛林中行走,我们需要的是光,这样我们才不会被树根绊倒或掉进坑里。我们的一生,也会通过罪恶的黑森林,圣经就是我们前面引路的亮光,它将暗中的树根和坑洼显示出来。学习圣经可以帮我们清楚地看见道路,使我们的脚踏在正确的路上。

119:113 三心二意的人是不能在善恶之间作出决定的。在顺服神的问题上,没有中间的路可选。我们必须立场鲜明,要么顺服神,要么不顺服,要么做神要我们做的事,要么不做。我们应当选择顺服神,同诗人一起说:“我喜爱你的律法。”

119:125 诗人向神求领悟。当我们将经文应用在日常工作中的时候,信心就活出来了。我们需要领悟才能明白,所以我们需要把经文应用到我们需要的地方去。圣经就像药似的,将它用到受感染的地方它就起作用。我们读圣经的时候,要留意那些能运用在实际中的教训、命令和例子。

119:160 信实是神性格的一方面。它将完美的真理彰显了出来。神是不会说谎的,他是真实而可靠的指南和帮助(参约17:14-17)。圣经是完全真实和可靠的。

119:165 现代社会的人渴望有心灵上的宁静。这里给出了如何得到宁静的明确指令:我们如果爱神并顺服神的律法,就有“极大的平安”。要相信惟有神能凌驾于日常生活的压力之上,并给予我们安全的保证。
