撮要

詩篇作為一本「小律法」有它的編修向導,目的就是引導人進入律法的默想而轉化生命。本文嘗試介紹古近東的文士訓練系統,了解這些文士如何在訓練期間把所學習的東西用來塑造他們的信仰與思維,從而在這場景下了解利未歌頌者作為詩篇編修者的類似取向,說明「默想律法」的思維如何影響他們對詩篇的編修。本文主張詩篇第一篇、第十九篇及第一一九篇成為編修的路標,引導讀者進入「默想律法」的重要性

 

ABSTRACT

The book of Psalms as a “small Torah” has its redactional orientation. This orientation directs readers to enter into a meditation of Torah that brings a transformation of life. This paper aims to introduce Sumero-Akkadian scribal education, exploring how this training influences the religious belief of the training scribes. Then I explore how we can understand the editor of the Psalter (i.e. Levitical singers) within this Mesopotamian scribal context. This paper contends that “Torah meditation” should be one of the prime concerns in the editing of the Psalter, and uses Psalm 1, 19, 119 to illustrate the point.
