Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

诗篇 10

求上帝惩治恶人

1耶和华啊,你为何远远站着?
为何在我遭难时隐藏起来?
恶人狂妄地追逼穷苦人,
愿他们落入自己所设的圈套。
恶人夸耀自己的贪欲,
贪婪的人憎恨、咒诅耶和华。
他们狂傲自大,心中没有上帝,
从不寻求耶和华。
他们凡事顺利,
对你的审判不屑一顾,
对所有的仇敌嗤之以鼻。
他们自以为可以屹立不倒,
世世代代永不遭殃。
他们满口咒诅、谎话和恐吓之言,
舌头沾满祸害和邪恶。
他们埋伏在村庄,
暗中监视受害者,杀害无辜。
他们像狮子埋伏在暗处,
猎取无助的人,
用网罗拖走他们。
10 不幸的人被击垮,
倒在他们的暴力下。
11 他们自言自语:“上帝忘记了,
祂掩面不理这些事!”
12 耶和华啊,求你起来!
上帝啊,求你举手施罚,
不要忘记无助的人!
13 恶人为何轻视上帝,
以为上帝不会追究呢?
14 但你已看到世人的疾苦,
随时伸出援手。
困苦无助的人投靠你,
你是孤儿的帮助。
15 求你打断恶人的臂膀,
彻底追究他们的罪恶。
16 耶和华永永远远是君王,
列邦必从祂的土地上灭亡。
17 耶和华啊,
你知道困苦人的愿望,
你必垂听他们的呼求,
安慰他们。
18 你为孤儿和受欺压的人申冤,
使渺小的世人不能再恐吓他们。

New Living Translation

Psalm 10

Psalm 10

O Lord, why do you stand so far away?
    Why do you hide when I am in trouble?
The wicked arrogantly hunt down the poor.
    Let them be caught in the evil they plan for others.
For they brag about their evil desires;
    they praise the greedy and curse the Lord.

The wicked are too proud to seek God.
    They seem to think that God is dead.
Yet they succeed in everything they do.
    They do not see your punishment awaiting them.
    They sneer at all their enemies.
They think, “Nothing bad will ever happen to us!
    We will be free of trouble forever!”

Their mouths are full of cursing, lies, and threats.[a]
    Trouble and evil are on the tips of their tongues.
They lurk in ambush in the villages,
    waiting to murder innocent people.
    They are always searching for helpless victims.
Like lions crouched in hiding,
    they wait to pounce on the helpless.
Like hunters they capture the helpless
    and drag them away in nets.
10 Their helpless victims are crushed;
    they fall beneath the strength of the wicked.
11 The wicked think, “God isn’t watching us!
    He has closed his eyes and won’t even see what we do!”

12 Arise, O Lord!
    Punish the wicked, O God!
    Do not ignore the helpless!
13 Why do the wicked get away with despising God?
    They think, “God will never call us to account.”
14 But you see the trouble and grief they cause.
    You take note of it and punish them.
The helpless put their trust in you.
    You defend the orphans.

15 Break the arms of these wicked, evil people!
    Go after them until the last one is destroyed.
16 The Lord is king forever and ever!
    The godless nations will vanish from the land.
17 Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless.
    Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.
18 You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed,
    so mere people can no longer terrify them.
