诗篇 27

赞美的祷告

大卫的诗。

1耶和华是我的光,我的拯救,
我还怕谁?
耶和华是我的堡垒,
我还怕谁?
当恶人来吞吃我,
仇敌来攻击我时,
必失足跌倒。
虽然大军围攻我,
我心中却一无所惧;
虽然战争来临,我仍满怀信心。
我曾向耶和华求一件事,
我还要求,就是能一生住在祂的殿中,
瞻仰祂的荣美,寻求祂的旨意。
危难之时,祂保护我,
把我藏在祂的圣幕里,
高高地安置在磐石上。
我要昂首面对四围的敌人,
我要在祂的圣幕里欢呼献祭,
歌颂赞美祂。

耶和华啊,求你垂听我的呼求,
求你恩待我,应允我。
你说:“来寻求我!”
我心中响应:
“耶和华啊,我要寻求你。”
别掩面不理我,
别愤然拒绝你的仆人,
你一向是我的帮助。
拯救我的上帝啊,
别离开我,别撇弃我。
10 纵使父母离弃我,
耶和华也必收留我。
11 耶和华啊,
求你指教我行你的道,
引导我走正路,远离仇敌。
12 求你不要让仇敌抓到我,
遂其所愿,
因为他们诬告我,恐吓我。

13 我深信今世必能看见耶和华的美善。
14 要等候耶和华,
要坚定不移地等候耶和华。

The Message

Psalm 27

A David Psalm

1Light, space, zest—
    that’s God!
So, with him on my side I’m fearless,
    afraid of no one and nothing.

    When vandal hordes ride down
    ready to eat me alive,
Those bullies and toughs
    fall flat on their faces.

When besieged,
    I’m calm as a baby.
When all hell breaks loose,
    I’m collected and cool.

I’m asking God for one thing,
    only one thing:
To live with him in his house
    my whole life long.
I’ll contemplate his beauty;
    I’ll study at his feet.

That’s the only quiet, secure place
    in a noisy world,
The perfect getaway,
    far from the buzz of traffic.

God holds me head and shoulders
    above all who try to pull me down.
I’m headed for his place to offer anthems
    that will raise the roof!
Already I’m singing God-songs;
    I’m making music to God.

7-9 Listen, God, I’m calling at the top of my lungs:
    “Be good to me! Answer me!”
When my heart whispered, “Seek God,”
    my whole being replied,
“I’m seeking him!”
    Don’t hide from me now!

9-10 You’ve always been right there for me;
    don’t turn your back on me now.
Don’t throw me out, don’t abandon me;
    you’ve always kept the door open.
My father and mother walked out and left me,
    but God took me in.

11-12 Point me down your highway, God;
    direct me along a well-lighted street;
    show my enemies whose side you’re on.
Don’t throw me to the dogs,
    those liars who are out to get me,
    filling the air with their threats.

13-14 I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness
    in the exuberant earth.
Stay with God!
    Take heart. Don’t quit.
I’ll say it again:
    Stay with God.
