Amplified Bible

Psalm 143

Prayer for Help and Guidance.

A Psalm of David.

1Hear my prayer, O Lord,
Listen to my supplications!
Answer me in Your faithfulness, and in Your righteousness.

And do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
For in Your sight no man living is righteous or justified.

For the enemy has persecuted me,
He has crushed my life down to the ground;
He has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have been long dead.

Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed and weak within me [wrapped in darkness];
My heart grows numb within me.


I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all that You have done;
I ponder the work of Your hands.

I reach out my hands to You;
My throat thirsts for You, as a parched land [thirsts for water]. Selah.


Answer me quickly, O Lord, my spirit fails;
Do not hide Your face from me,
Or I will become like those who go down into the pit (grave).

Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For I trust in You.
Teach me the way in which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You.

Rescue me, O Lord, from my enemies;
I take refuge in You.

10 
Teach me to do Your will [so that I may please You],
For You are my God;
Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
11 
Save my life, O Lord, for Your name’s sake;
In Your righteousness bring my life out of trouble.
12 
In your lovingkindness, silence and destroy my enemies
And destroy all those who afflict my life,
For I am Your servant.

诗篇 143

求上帝拯救

大卫的诗。

1耶和华啊,求你垂听我的祷告,
倾听我的呼求,
求你凭你的信实和公义应允我的祈求。
求你不要审判你的仆人,
因为在你眼中没有一个义人。
敌人迫害我,打垮我,
使我生活在黑暗中,
像死去很久的人。
我心力交瘁,惊恐万分。
我想起遥远的过去,
我思想你的一切作为,
回想你所做的事。
我举手向你呼求,
我的心渴慕你如同干旱之地渴慕甘霖。(细拉)

耶和华啊,求你快快应允我!
我已绝望,求你不要掩面不顾我,
不然我必和下坟墓的人无异。
求你让我在清晨就听见你的慈言爱语,
因为我信靠你;
求你指示我当走的路,
因为我的心仰望你。
耶和华啊,求你救我脱离仇敌,
我要到你那里寻求庇护。
10 求你教导我遵行你的旨意,
因为你是我的上帝,
愿你良善的灵引导我走平坦的路。
11 耶和华啊,
求你为自己名的缘故拯救我,
凭你的公义救我脱离患难。
12 求你铲除我的仇敌,
因为你爱我。
求你消灭一切迫害我的人,
因为我是你的仆人。
