诗篇 42

卷二:诗篇42—72

流落异乡者的祷告

可拉后裔作的训诲诗,交给乐长。

1上帝啊,我的心切慕你,
像鹿切慕溪水。
我心里渴慕上帝,
渴慕永活的上帝,
我何时才能去朝拜祂呢?
我不吃不喝,昼夜以泪洗面,
人们整天讥笑我:
“你的上帝在哪里?”
从前我带领众人浩浩荡荡去上帝的殿,
在欢呼、感恩声中一起过节。
我回想这些事,
心中无限忧伤。
我的心啊!
你为何沮丧?为何烦躁?
要仰望上帝,
因为我还要赞美祂——我的救主,我的上帝。

我的上帝啊,我心中沮丧,
便在约旦河、黑门山和米萨山想起你。
你的瀑布发出巨响,
回荡在深渊之间,
你的洪涛巨浪淹没我。
白天耶和华将祂的慈爱浇灌我;
夜间我歌颂祂,
向赐我生命的上帝祷告。
我对上帝——我的磐石说:
“你为何忘记我?
为何要我受仇敌的攻击,使我哀伤不已呢?”
10 仇敌的辱骂刺骨钻心。
他们整天对我说:
“你的上帝在哪里?”
11 我的心啊!
你为何沮丧?为何烦躁?
要仰望上帝,
因为我还要赞美祂——我的救主,我的上帝。

Psalm 42

BOOK 2

Thirsting for God in Trouble and Exile.

For the choir director. A [a]Maskil of the sons of Korah.

1As the deer [b]pants for the water brooks,
So my soul [c]pants for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God;
When shall I come and [d]appear before God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
While they say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
These things I remember and I pour out my soul within me.
For I used to go along with the throng and [e]lead them in procession to the house of God,
With the voice of joy and thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival.

Why are you [f]in despair, O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
[g]Hope in God, for I shall [h]again praise [i]Him
For the [j]help of His presence.
O my God, my soul is [k]in despair within me;
Therefore I remember You from the land of the Jordan
And the [l]peaks of Hermon, from Mount Mizar.
Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls;
All Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me.
The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime;
And His song will be with me in the night,
A prayer to the God of my life.

I will say to God my rock, “Why have You forgotten me?
Why do I go mourning [m]because of the oppression of the enemy?”
10 As a shattering of my bones, my adversaries revile me,
While they say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
11 Why are you [n]in despair, O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
[o]Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him,
The [p]help of my countenance and my God.
