Amplified Bible

Psalm 13

Prayer for Help in Trouble.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?

How long must I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart day after day?
How long will my enemy exalt himself and triumph over me?


Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
Give light (life) to my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,

And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.


But I have trusted and relied on and been confident in Your lovingkindness and faithfulness;
My heart shall rejoice and delight in Your salvation.

I will sing to the Lord,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

詩篇 13

祈求上帝垂顧

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1耶和華啊,你忘記我要到何時呢?要到永遠嗎?
你轉臉不顧我要到何時呢?
我思緒煩亂,日夜憂傷要到何時呢?
我的仇敵佔盡上風要到何時呢?
我的上帝耶和華啊,
求你垂顧我,回答我,
使我眼睛明亮,
免得我在沉睡中死去,
免得我的仇敵說:「我們戰勝了他!」
免得他們因我敗落而歡喜。
我深信你的慈愛,
我的心要因你的拯救而歡欣。
耶和華一直恩待我,
我要向祂歌唱。
