Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

诗篇 120

祈求上帝帮助

上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1我在患难中向耶和华祷告,
祂就应允了我。
耶和华啊,
求你救我远离虚谎诡诈之徒。
诡诈之徒啊!
你会受到怎样的惩罚呢?
你会有什么下场呢?
等待你的是勇士的利箭和炙热的炭火。
我寄居在米设和基达的人当中有祸了!
我住在憎恶和平的人当中太久了。
我爱和平,
但我倡导和平的时候,
他们却要战争。

The Message

Psalm 120

A Pilgrim Song

11-2 I’m in trouble. I cry to God,
    desperate for an answer:
“Deliver me from the liars, God!
    They smile so sweetly but lie through their teeth.”

3-4 Do you know what’s next, can you see what’s coming,
    all you barefaced liars?
Pointed arrows and burning coals
    will be your reward.

5-7 I’m doomed to live in Meshech,
    cursed with a home in Kedar,
My whole life lived camping
    among quarreling neighbors.
I’m all for peace, but the minute
    I tell them so, they go to war!
