Salme 31

Tillid i kriser

1Til korlederen: En sang af David.

Herre, jeg søger ly hos dig,
    for du svigter mig aldrig.
Kom og red mig,
    for du er altid trofast.
Bøj dig og lyt til min bøn,
    grib ind og red mig hurtigt.
Vær du min fæstning og mit tilflugtssted,
    hvor mine fjender ikke kan nå mig.
Ja, du er min klippeborg og min fæstning.
    Hjælp mig igen, og jeg vil ære dig.
Gør mig fri af den fælde, mine fjender har sat,
    for du er mit håb og min tilflugt.
Mit liv er i dine hænder.[a]
    Frels mig, Herre, min trofaste Gud.

Jeg hader dem, der dyrker jammerlige afguder.
    Jeg stoler altid selv på dig og din magt.
Jeg jubler over din trofaste nåde,
    for du kender mine problemer,
        og du har set mine lidelser.
Du udleverede mig ikke til fjenden,
    men førte mig til et sikkert sted.
10 Herre, vær mig nådig,
    for jeg er i nød.
Mine øjne er røde af gråd,
    mit indre fortæres af smerte.
11 Jeg er døden nær af sorg,
    mine dage går med at sukke.
Mit livsmod er brudt,
    min krop sygner hen.
12 Mine fjender håner mig,
    mine naboer spotter mig.
Mine venner frygter mig,
    de flygter, når de ser mig på gaden.
13 De har afskrevet mig, som var jeg allerede død,
    jeg er kasseret som en krukke, der blev knust.
14 Jeg hører, hvad der hviskes i krogene,
    jeg ved, jeg er omringet af fjender.
De rotter sig sammen imod mig,
    de planlægger at slå mig ihjel.
15 Men Herre, jeg stoler på dig.
    Jeg siger: „Du er min Gud!
16 Mit liv er i dine hænder.
    Red mig fra alle mine fjender.
17 Se i nåde til din stakkels tjener,
    frels mig, min trofaste Gud.”
18 Herre, lad mig ikke i stikken,
    når jeg råber til dig om hjælp.
Gør det af med de onde mennesker,
    lad dem synke stumme i graven.
19 Sæt en stopper for deres falske anklager,
    luk munden på de hovmodige løgnere,
    som anklager de gudfrygtige uden grund.

20 Hvor er din godhed dog stor,
    du velsigner alle, der ærer dig.
Enhver kan se din nåde
    over dem, der søger din hjælp.
21 Du beskytter dem, der adlyder dig,
    de er skærmet mod vold og overgreb.
Du holder din hånd over dem
    og renser dem fra de falske anklager.

22 Jeg priser dig, Herre, for din trofaste nåde.
    Du reddede mig, da jeg var omringet af fjender.
23 Jeg sagde i min angst,
    „Herren har forladt mig.”
Men du hørte min bøn,
    da jeg råbte om hjælp.

24 Følg Herren, alt hans folk,
    for han beskytter de lydige,
        men straffer de oprørske.
25 Hold ud og tab ikke modet,
    I, der stoler på Herren.

Psalm 31

Psalm 31

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Lord, I have come to you for safety.
    Don’t let me ever be put to shame.
    Save me, because you do what is right.
Pay attention to me.
    Come quickly to help me.
Be the rock I go to for safety.
    Be the strong fort that saves me.
You are my rock and my fort.
    Lead me and guide me for the honor of your name.
Keep me free from the trap that is set for me.
    You are my place of safety.
Into your hands I commit my very life.
    Lord, set me free. You are my faithful God.

I hate those who worship worthless statues of gods.
    But I trust in the Lord.
I will be glad and full of joy because you love me.
    You saw that I was hurting.
    You took note of my great pain.
You have not handed me over to the enemy.
    You have put me in a wide and safe place.

Lord, have mercy on me. I’m in deep trouble.
    I’m so sad I can hardly see.
    My whole body grows weak with sadness.
10 Pain has taken over my life.
    My years are spent in groaning.
I have no strength because I’m hurting so much.
    My body is getting weaker and weaker.
11 My neighbors make fun of me
    because I have so many enemies.
My closest friends are afraid of me.
    People who see me on the street run away from me.
12 No one remembers me. I might as well be dead.
    I have become like broken pottery.
13 I hear many people whispering,
    “There is terror all around him!”
Many have joined together against me.
    They plan to kill me.

14 But I trust in you, Lord.
    I say, “You are my God.”
15 My whole life is in your hands.
    Save me from the hands of my enemies.
    Save me from those who are chasing me.
16 May you look on me with favor.
    Save me because your love is faithful.
17 Lord, I have cried out to you.
    Don’t let me be put to shame.
But let sinners be put to shame.
    Let them lie silent in the place of the dead.
18 Their lips tell lies. Let them be silenced.
    They speak with pride against those who do right.
    They make fun of them.

19 You have stored up so many good things.
    You have stored them up for those who have respect for you.
You give those things while everyone watches.
    You give them to people who run to you for safety.
20 They are safe because you are with them.
    You hide them from the evil plans of their enemies.
In your house you keep them safe
    from those who bring charges against them.

21 Give praise to the Lord.
    He showed me his wonderful love
    when my enemies attacked the city I was in.
22 I was afraid and said,
    “I’ve been cut off from you!”
But you heard my cry for your favor.
    You heard me when I called out to you for help.

23 Love the Lord, all you who are faithful to him!
    The Lord keeps safe those who are faithful to him.
    But he completely pays back those who are proud.
24 Be strong, all you who put your hope in the Lord.
    Never give up.
