11/21 Daily Devotional

Chapel Devotional 

Psalm 27 

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to devour my flesh— my adversaries and foes— they shall stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident. One thing I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will set me high on a rock. Now my head is lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the Lord. Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud, be gracious to me and answer me! “Come,” my heart says, “seek his face!” Your face, Lord, do I seek. Do not hide your face from me. Do not turn your servant away in anger, you who have been my help. Do not cast me off, do not forsake me, O God of my salvation! If my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will take me up. Teach me your way, O Lord, and lead me on a level path because of my enemies. Do not give me up to the will of my adversaries, for false witnesses have risen against me, and they are breathing out violence. I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! 

 

(다윗의 시) 여호와는 나의 빛이요 나의 구원이시니 내가 누구를 두려워하리요 여호와는 내 생명의 능력이시니 내가 누구를 무서워하리요 나의 대적나의 원수된 행악자가 내 살을 먹으려고 내게로 왔다가 실족하여 넘어졌도다 군대가 나를 대적하여 진 칠지라도 내 마음이 두렵지 아니하며 전쟁이 일어나 나를 치려 할지라도 내가 오히려 안연하리로다 내가 여호와께 청하였던 한 가지 일 곧 그것을 구하리니 곧 나로 내 생전에 여호와의 집에 거하여 여호와의 아름다움을 앙망하며 그 전에서 사모하게 하실 것이라 여호와께서 환난 날에 나를 그 초막 속에 비밀히 지키시고 그 장막 은밀한 곳에 나를 숨기시며 바위 위에 높이 두시리로다 이제 내 머리가 나를 두른 내 원수 위에 들리리니 내가 그 장막에서 즐거운 제사를 드리겠고 노래하여 여호와를 찬송하리로다여호와여내가 소리로 부르짖을 때에 들으시고 또한 나를 긍휼히 여기사 응답하소서 너희는 내 얼굴을 찾으라 하실 때에 내 마음이 주께 말하되 여호와여내가 주의 얼굴을 찾으리이다 하였나이다 주의 얼굴을 내게서 숨기지 마시고 주의 종을 노하여 버리지 마소서 주는 나의 도움이 되셨나이다 나의 구원의 하나님이시여나를 버리지 말고 떠나지 마옵소서 내 부모는 나를 버렸으나 여호와는 나를 영접하시리이다 여호와여주의 길로 나를 가르치시고 내 원수를 인하여 평탄한 길로 인도하소서 내 생명을 내 대적의 뜻에 맡기지 마소서 위증자와 악을 토하는 자가 일어나 나를 치려 함이니이다 내가 산 자의 땅에 있음이여 여호와의 은혜 볼 것을 믿었도다 너는 여호와를 바랄지어다강하고 담대하며 여호와를 바랄지어다! 

 

(大卫的诗。)耶和华是我的亮光,是我的拯救!我还怕谁呢?耶和华是我性命的保障(或作“力量”)!我还惧谁呢 那作恶的,就是我的仇敌,前来吃我肉的时候,就绊跌仆倒 虽有军兵安营攻击我,我的心也不害怕;虽然兴起刀兵攻击我,我必仍旧安稳 有一件事,我曾求耶和华,我仍要寻求:就是一生一世住在耶和华的殿中,瞻仰他的荣美,在他的殿里求问 因为我遭遇患难,他必暗暗地保守我;在他亭子里,把我藏在他帐幕的隐密处,将我高举在磐石上 现在我得以昂首,高过四面的仇敌;我要在他的帐幕里欢然献祭,我要唱诗歌颂耶和华 耶和华啊,我用声音呼吁的时候,求你垂听;并求你怜恤我,应允我 你说:“你们当寻求我的面。”那时我心向你说:“耶和华啊,你的面我正要寻求。” 不要向我掩面。不要发怒赶逐仆人,你向来是帮助我的。救我的 神啊,不要丢掉我,也不要离弃我 我父母离弃我,耶和华必收留我 耶和华啊,求你将你的道指教我,因我仇敌的缘故引导我走平坦的路 求你不要把我交给敌人,遂其所愿;因为妄作见证的和口吐凶言的,起来攻击我 我若不信在活人之地得见耶和华的恩惠,就早已丧胆了 要等候耶和华!当壮胆,坚固你的心。我再说,要等候耶和华 

 

Hope beyond all human hope, 
     you promised descendants as numerous as the stars 
     to old Abraham and barren Sarah. 
You promise light and salvation 
     in the midst of darkness and despair, 
     and promise redemption to a world that will not listen. 
Gather us to yourself in tenderness, 
     open our ears to listen to your word, 
     and teach us to live faithfully 
     as people confident of the fulfillment of your promises. 
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ.  

Amen.
