诗篇 38

受苦者的祈求

大卫求上帝眷顾的诗。

1耶和华啊,
求你不要在发怒时惩罚我,
不要在烈怒下管教我。
因为你的箭射穿我,
你的手击打我。
你的怒气使我浑身是病,
我的罪恶使我骨头朽烂。
我的罪恶滔天,使我不堪其重。
我因愚昧而伤口溃烂流脓。
我疼得弯腰驼背,
终日哀伤。
我的腰灼痛难忍,
我浑身是病。
我精疲力尽,彻底崩溃;
我心中悲伤,呻吟不止。
主啊,你知道我的渴望,
听见了我的叹息。
10 我的心砰砰直跳,
气力衰竭,
眼睛黯淡无光。
11 因我的疾病,朋友同伴回避我,
亲人远离我。
12 谋害我的人设下陷阱,
想害我的人威胁我,
整天图谋奸计。
13 但我像听不见的聋子,
无法说话的哑巴。
14 我就像一个不能听、不能辩的人。
15 耶和华啊,我等候你;
主,我的上帝啊,你必应允我。
16 我曾求告你,
别让他们幸灾乐祸,
在我失脚时沾沾自喜。
17 我快要跌倒,
我的痛苦无休无止。
18 我要承认我的罪过,
罪恶使我心里惴惴不安。
19 我的仇敌势力强大,
无故恨我的人不计其数。
20 我追求良善,
他们就恨我,以恶报善。
21 耶和华啊,求你不要撇弃我!
我的上帝啊,求你不要远离我!
22 拯救我的主啊,
求你快来帮助我!

Psalm 38

Psalm 38

A psalm of David. A prayer.

Lord, don’t correct me when you are angry.
    Don’t punish me when you are burning with anger.
You have wounded me with your arrows.
    You have struck me with your hand.
Because of your anger, my whole body is sick.
    Because of my sin, I’m not healthy.
My guilt has become too much for me.
    It is a load too heavy to carry.

My wounds are ugly. They stink.
    I’ve been foolish. I have sinned.
I am bent over. I’ve been brought very low.
    All day long I go around weeping.
My back is filled with burning pain.
    My whole body is sick.
I am weak and feel as if I’ve been broken in pieces.
    I groan because of the great pain in my heart.

Lord, everything I really want is clearly known to you.
    You always hear me when I sigh.
10 My heart pounds, and my strength is gone.
    My eyes can hardly see.
11 My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds.
    My neighbors stay far away from me.
12 Those who are trying to kill me set their traps.
    Those who want to harm me talk about destroying me.
    All day long they make their plans and tell their lies.

13 Like a deaf person, I can’t hear.
    Like someone who can’t speak, I can’t say a word.
14 I’m like someone who doesn’t hear.
    I’m like someone whose mouth can’t make any reply.
15 Lord, I wait for you to help me.
    Lord my God, I know you will answer.
16 I said, “Don’t let my enemies have the joy of seeing me fall.
    Don’t let them brag when my feet slip.”

17 I am about to fall.
    My pain never leaves me.
18 I admit that I have done wrong.
    I am troubled by my sin.
19 Though I have done nothing to cause it, many people have become my enemies.
    They hate me without any reason.
20 They pay me back with evil, even though I was good to them.
    They bring charges against me, though I try only to do what is good.

21 Lord, don’t desert me.
    My God, don’t be far away from me.
22 Lord my Savior,
    come quickly to help me.
