9/15 Daily Devotional

Chapel Devotional  

Psalm 119:97-106 

Oh, how I love your law! It is my meditation all day long. Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is always with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your decrees are my meditation. I understand more than the aged, for I keep your precepts. I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep your word. I do not turn away from your ordinances, for you have taught me. How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I have sworn an oath and confirmed it, to observe your righteous ordinances. 

 

¡Oh, cuánto amo tu ley! Todo el día es ella mi meditación. Más sabio me haces que mis enemigos por tu mandamiento, que por siempre es mío. Tengo más prudencia que todos mis maestros, porque mi meditación son tus dictámenes. Poseo más cordura que los viejosporque guardo tus ordenanzas. Retraigo mis pasos de toda mala senda para guardar tu palabra. De tus juicios no me aparto, porque me instruyes . ¡Cuán dulce al paladar me es tu promesa, más que miel a mi boca! Por tus ordenanzas cobro inteligencia, por eso odio toda senda de mentira. Para mis pies antorcha es tu palabra, luz para mi sendero. He jurado, y he de mantenerlo, guardar tus justos juicios. 
 

주의 규례를 항상 사모함으로 내 마음이 상하나이다 교만하여 저주를 받으며 주의 계명에서 떠나는 자를 주께서 꾸짖으셨나이다 내가 주의 증거를 지켰사오니 훼방과 멸시를 내게서 떠나게 하소서 방백들도 앉아 나를 훼방하였사오나 주의 종은 주의 율례를 묵상하였나이다 주의 증거는 나의 즐거움이요 나의 모사니이다 내 영혼이 진토에 붙었사오니 주의 말씀대로 나를 소성케 하소서 내가 나의 행위를 고하매 주께서 내게 응답하셨으니 주의 율례를 내게 가르치소서 나로 주의 법도의 길을 깨닫게 하소서 그리하시면 내가 주의 기사를 묵상하리이다 나의 영혼이 눌림을 인하여 녹사오니 주의 말씀대로 나를 세우소서 거짓 행위를 내게서 떠나게 하시고 주의 법을 제게 은혜로이 베푸소서 

 

O God, Wisdom of the universe, 

     you bear the pain of your people. 

Grant us the gift of wisdom, 

     that we may discern your way 

     and live justly and graciously 

     amid the struggles of this world.  

Amen.
