Amplified Bible

Psalm 94

The Lord Implored to Avenge His People.

1O Lord God, You to whom vengeance belongs,
O God, You to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth [in judgment]!

Rise up, O Judge of the earth;
Give to the proud a fitting compensation.

O Lord, how long will the wicked,
How long will the wicked rejoice in triumph?

They pour out words, speaking arrogant things;
All who do evil boast proudly.

They crush Your people, O Lord,
And afflict and abuse Your heritage.

[a]They kill the widow and the alien
And murder the fatherless.

Yet they say, “The Lord does not see,
Nor does the God of Jacob (Israel) notice it.”


Consider thoughtfully, you senseless (stupid ones) among the people;
And you [dull-minded] fools, when will you become wise and understand?

He who made the ear, does He not hear?
He who formed the eye, does He not see?
10 
He who instructs the nations,
Does He not rebuke and punish,
He who teaches man knowledge?
11 
The Lord knows the thoughts of man,
That they are a mere breath (vain, empty, futile).

12 
Blessed [with wisdom and prosperity] is the man whom You discipline and instruct, O Lord,
And whom You teach from Your law,
13 
That You may grant him [power to calm himself and find] peace in the days of adversity,
Until the pit is dug for the wicked and ungodly.
14 
For the Lord will not abandon His people,
Nor will He abandon His inheritance.
15 
For judgment will again be righteous,
And all the upright in heart will follow it.
16 
Who will stand up for me against the evildoers?
Who will take a stand for me against those who do wickedness?

17 
If the Lord had not been my help,
I would soon have dwelt in [the land of] silence.
18 
If I say, “My foot has slipped,”
Your compassion and lovingkindness, O Lord, will hold me up.
19 
When my anxious thoughts multiply within me,
Your comforts delight me.
20 
Can a throne of destruction be allied with You,
One which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?
21 
They band themselves together against the life of the righteous
And condemn the innocent to death.
22 
But the Lord has become my high tower and defense,
And my God the rock of my refuge.
23 
He has turned back their own wickedness upon them
And will destroy them by means of their own evil;
The Lord our God will wipe them out.

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 94:6 Widows, resident aliens, and the fatherless were particularly vulnerable members of ancient society, since they often had little or no economic means. The wicked could easily take advantage of them. God in several Old Testament passages commanded Israel to care especially for these helpless members of society. See, for example, Deut 24:17-22; Ps 146:9; Is 1:17; Zech 7:9, 10.

诗篇 94

上帝是审判者

1耶和华啊,你是申冤的上帝;
申冤的上帝啊,
求你彰显你的荣光。
审判世界的主啊,
求你起来使骄傲人受到应得的报应。
耶和华啊,
恶人洋洋得意,要到何时呢?
要到何时呢?
他们大放厥词,狂妄自大。
耶和华啊,他们压迫你的子民,
苦害你的产业。
他们谋害寡妇、外族人和孤儿,
并说:“耶和华看不见,
雅各的上帝不会知道。”

愚昧的人啊,你们要思想;
无知的人啊,你们何时才能明白呢?
难道创造耳朵的上帝听不见吗?
难道创造眼睛的上帝看不见吗?
10 管教列国的上帝难道不惩罚你们吗?
赐知识的上帝难道不知道吗?
11 耶和华洞悉人的思想,
祂知道人的思想虚妄,

12 耶和华啊,蒙你管教并用律法训诲的人有福了!
13 你使他们在患难中有平安,
恶人终必灭亡。
14 耶和华不会丢弃祂的子民,
也不会遗弃祂的产业。
15 公正的审判必重现,
心地正直的人都必拥护。

16 谁肯为我奋起攻击恶人?
谁肯为我起来抵挡作恶的人?
17 耶和华若不帮助我,
我早已归入死亡的沉寂中了。
18 我说:“我要倒下了!”
耶和华啊,你便以慈爱扶助我。
19 当我忧心忡忡的时候,
你的抚慰带给我欢乐。

20 借律例制造不幸的首领,
岂能与你联盟?
21 他们结党攻击义人,
残害无辜。
22 但耶和华是我的堡垒,
我的上帝是保护我的磐石。
23 祂必使恶人自食恶果,
因他们的罪恶而毁灭他们。
我们的上帝耶和华必毁灭他们。
