查經- 詩篇

Bible Study- The Book of Psalms

 

Lately, we started to read and meditate  on the book of Psalms. We started with Psalm 1, then Psalm 2. then Psalm 3, etc. It has been indeed an amazing journey in meditating, pleading, and praising with the psalm’s authors to our merciful and almighty LORD.
最近,我們開始閱讀和沈思詩篇。 我們從詩篇1開始,然後是詩篇2,然後是詩篇3,以此類推。在詩篇的課程中, 學習和詩篇作者一起來沉思,懇求和讚美慈悲萬能的耶和華上帝,這確實是一個奇妙的旅程。

 

There are five divisions of the book of psalms. Each division ends in a doxology. The five divisions are Ps 1 to Ps 41; Ps 42 to Ps 72; Ps 73 to Ps 89; Ps 90 to Ps 106; and finally Ps 107 to Ps 150. The book of psalms covers a period of 900 years from Moses time (1410 BC) to the post-exilic period. There are many authors of the psalms including most famously King David. We love the David’s psalms because of its description of his conflicts with his enemies, and his reliance on God.
詩篇分為五個部分。 每個部門都以上帝讚美詩結尾. 這五個部分分別是詩篇 1至詩篇 41;詩篇42至詩篇 72; 詩篇73至詩篇89; 詩篇90至詩篇 106; 最後是詩篇 107至詩篇150。詩篇涵蓋了900年,從摩西時代(公元前1410年)到流放後的時期。 詩篇的作者很多,其中包括最著名的大衛王。 我們愛大衛的詩篇,因為它描述了他與敵人的衝突,以及他對上帝的依賴。

 

The actual author of the Psalter  is,  of course, God. Thus, it is instructional, inspirational, and comforting, just as indicated in  2 Tim 3:16-17, ”16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” Personally, we are amazed by the immense applicabilities of the Psalter to our daily living.
詩篇的真正作者當然是上帝。 因此,這是有教益,鼓舞人心和令人欣慰的,正如提摩太後書 3:16-17中所述 聖經都是有益的: “16 聖經都是神所默示的,於教訓、督責、使人歸正、教導人學義都是有益的, 17 叫屬神的人得以完全,預備行各樣的善事。” 就個人而言,我們對詩篇在日常生活中的巨大適用性感到驚訝.


In psalms, we are instructed about God’s holy attributes; we read psalms praising God as the Creator in controlling clouds and thunders, wind and storms, growing fruits and foods,  and healing diseases; God in control of history by involving in saving His people, in blessing His people, and in defeating their enemies; we saw disobedience of Israel and in the foolishness of gentiles in idol worship, and severe judgements from God; we read people crying to God for their distresses and God heard their dire pleads and saved them; we also read the prophesies concerning our Lord Jesus Christ; we are taught on  the ways to blessing and the ways to destruction. Most of all, we saw the conflicts among peoples, and among individuals, particularly sufferings of King David. We are also reassured and thankful to God of purifying the faithful remainders of His chosen people. Indeed, the book of psalms fully portray our current world and show us how to live in a wicked world, and how to rely on God alone and praising His wonderful deeds among us all the times.

在詩篇中,我們被教導關於神的聖潔屬性;我們讀過詩篇,讚美上帝為創造者,讚美上帝在控制雲層,雷電,暴風雨,保佑生產水果和食物以及治癒疾病方面強大權力;上帝通過參與拯救他的子民,祝福他的子民以及打敗他們的敵人來控制歷史; 我們看到以色列人不服從他們的救主上帝,外邦人在偶像崇拜中的愚昧無知,以及上帝的嚴厲審判; 我們讀到人們為痛苦而向上帝哭泣,上帝聽到了他們的懇求並救了他們; 我們還看到了有關我們的主耶穌基督的預言; 我們學習了獲得上帝祝福的道路和毀滅的道路; 最重要的是,我們看到了民族之間和個人之間的衝突,特別是大衛王的苦難。 我們也為上帝淨化選定人民的忠實餘民而感恩; 的確,詩篇充分地描繪了我們當今的世界,並向我們展示瞭如何生活在一個邪惡的世界中,以及如何單單依靠上帝並在我們當中無時無刻地讚美他的奇妙作為.
