バイブルクラスがおこなわれました

 

この日のバイブルクラスは4名の参加でした。


詩篇32編を学びましたが、今回は本文の前に英文解説が併記されているThe Voiceのテキストを掲載しました。


解説によると、この詩はダビデのバテシバへの罪を後にネーサン(ダビデが殺した預言者)がダビデの罪としてすっぱ抜いたことに関連づけ、王ダビデでさえ大きな欠点を持ち合わせていたこと、そこから私たちがこの詩から自らの罪と結びつけないとしても、自らの罪を痛いほど自覚している人々のための懺悔の告白のモデルと記されています。


そして結びは神の赦しへの感謝と賛美で結ばれています。


Psalm 32 The Voice (VOICE)


Psalm 32


A contemplative song[a] of David.


The psalms celebrate God's forgiveness that comes through confession and repentance. Some interpreters link this psalm to David's sin with Bathsheba after Nathan had exposed his transgression, but the king certainly had other failings. Even if we do not associate this psalm with any personal transgression by David, it serves well as a model confession for those who are painfully aware of their sin.


How happy is the one whose wrongs are forgiven,
    whose sin is hidden from sight.
How happy is the person whose sin the Eternal will not take into account.
[b]
    How happy are those who no longer lie, to themselves or others.


When I refused to admit my wrongs, I was miserable,
    moaning and complaining all day long
    so that even my bones felt brittle.
Day and night, Your hand kept pressing on me.
    My strength dried up like water in the summer heat;
    You wore me down.


[pause][c]


When I finally saw my own lies,
    I owned up to my sins before You,
    and I did not try to hide my evil deeds from You.
I said to myself, "I'll admit all my sins to the Eternal,"
    and You lifted and carried away the guilt of my sin.


[pause]


So let all who are devoted to You
    speak honestly to You now, while You are still listening.
For then when the floods come, surely the rushing water
    will not even reach them.
You are my hiding place.
    You will keep me out of trouble
    and envelop me with songs that remind me I am free.


[pause]


I will teach you and tell you the way to go and how to get there;
    I will give you good counsel, and I will watch over you.
But don't be stubborn and stupid like horses and mules
    who, if not reined by leather and metal,
    will run wild, ignoring their masters.


10 Tormented and empty are wicked and destructive people,
    but the one who trusts in the Eternal is wrapped tightly in His gracious love.
11 
Express your joy; be happy in Him, you who are good and true.
    Go ahead, shout and rejoice aloud, you whose hearts are honest and straightforward.
