58:1 (大卫的金诗,交与伶长,调用休要毁坏)世人哪,你们默然不语,真合公义吗。施行审判,岂按正直吗。

Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

58:2 不然,你们是心中作恶。你们在地上秤出你们手所行的强暴。

Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

58:3 恶人一出母胎,就与神疏远。一离母腹,便走错路,说谎话。

The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

58:4 他们的毒气,好像蛇的毒气。他们好像塞耳的聋虺,

Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

58:5 不听行法术的声音。虽用极灵的咒语,也是不听。

Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

58:6 神阿,求你敲碎他们口中的牙。耶和华阿,求你敲掉少壮狮子的大牙。

Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

58:7 愿他们消灭如急流的水一般。他们瞅准射箭的时候,愿箭头彷佛砍断。

Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

58:8 愿他们像蜗牛消化过去,又像妇人坠落未见天日的胎。

As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

58:9 你们用荆棘烧火。锅还未热,他要用旋风把青的和烧着的一齐刮去。

Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.

58:10 义人见仇敌遭报,就欢喜,要在恶人的血中洗脚。

The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

58:11 因此,人必说,义人诚然有善报。在地上果有施行判断的神。

So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

诗篇58参考

古时断案总是凭人的意思定断,难怪诗人要为公义呼号;你,可有诗人的心怀?
58篇 这就叫咒诅诗(参35:1的注释)。这是对正义强烈的呼喊,乍一看似乎是在为复仇而呼喊。旧约充满了公义,这在诗篇中也是个重要的主题。不幸的是,古代的许多法官和统治者把公义掌握在自己的手中。他们有完全的权柄但毫不负责任,靠权力制订自己的法律。法官腐化,人们在今生今世便失去了希望。神爱公义,那些顺从神的人将在永恒中经历到完美的公义。

有一天,神的公义必会伸张出来,纵在今天未见。你,相信吗?
58:11 对于百姓而言,国家的领袖应该公正公平。当他们不公正和不公平时,人民就受苦,富人越来越富,穷人越来越穷。搞政治的从人民那里攫取权力,全民族的道德水平就恶化,神就被忽视。但正义最终得胜,“义人要欢乐”(58:10)。我们确信,终有一天,神将公平地作出审判。我们要谨慎,不可与不公义者为伍。如若不然,我们会发现自己是站在一位愤怒的法官面前。
