诗篇 140

祈求上帝保护

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1耶和华啊!
求你拯救我脱离恶人,
保护我脱离残暴之徒。
他们心怀叵测,整天挑拨离间。
他们的言语恶毒如蛇,
嘴唇有蛇的毒液。(细拉)

耶和华啊,
求你使我免遭恶人的毒手,
保护我脱离残暴之徒。
他们图谋害我。
傲慢人在我的路上暗设网罗,
布下圈套,挖了陷阱。(细拉)

耶和华啊,
我说:“你是我的上帝。”
耶和华啊,求你垂听我的呼求。
主耶和华,我大能的拯救者啊,
在战争的日子,你保护我。
耶和华啊,
求你不要让恶人的愿望实现,
不要让他们的阴谋得逞,
免得他们狂妄自大。(细拉)

愿那些围攻我的人自食恶果。
10 愿火炭落在他们身上,
愿他们被丢进火里,
被抛进深坑,不得翻身。
11 愿毁谤者在地上无法立足,
愿祸患毁灭残暴之徒。
12 我知道耶和华必为贫穷人伸张正义,
为困苦者申冤。
13 义人必赞美你的名,
正直人必活在你面前。

Psalm 140

Prayer for Protection against the Wicked.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1Rescue me, O Lord, from evil men;
Preserve me from violent men
Who devise evil things in their hearts;
They continually stir up wars.
They sharpen their tongues as a serpent;
Poison of a viper is under their lips. [a]Selah.

Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
Preserve me from violent men
Who have [b]purposed to [c]trip up my feet.
The proud have hidden a trap for me, and cords;
They have spread a net by the [d]wayside;
They have set snares for me. Selah.

I said to the Lord, “You are my God;
Give ear, O Lord, to the voice of my supplications.
“O [e]God the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of [f]battle.
“Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;
Do not promote his evil device, that they not be exalted. Selah.

“As for the head of those who surround me,
May the mischief of their lips cover them.
10 “May burning coals fall upon them;
May they be cast into the fire,
Into [g]deep pits from which they cannot rise.
11 “May a [h]slanderer not be established in the earth;
May evil hunt the violent man [i]speedily.”

12 I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted
And justice for the poor.
13 Surely the righteous will give thanks to Your name;
The upright will dwell in Your presence.
