诗篇 43

流亡异乡者的祷告

1上帝啊,
求你为我伸张正义,
在不虔敬的人面前为我辩护,
救我脱离诡诈邪恶的人。
你是保护我的上帝,
你为何丢弃我?
为何让我受仇敌的攻击,
使我哀伤不已呢?
求你以光明和真理引导我,
领我到你的圣山,到你的居所。
我要到上帝的祭坛前,
到赐我喜乐的上帝面前。
上帝啊,我的上帝,
我要弹琴赞美你。
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。

The Message

Psalm 43

11-2 Clear my name, God; stick up for me
    against these loveless, immoral people.
Get me out of here, away
    from these lying degenerates.
I counted on you, God.
    Why did you walk out on me?
Why am I pacing the floor, wringing my hands
    over these outrageous people?

3-4 Give me your lantern and compass,
    give me a map,
So I can find my way to the sacred mountain,
    to the place of your presence,
To enter the place of worship,
    meet my exuberant God,
Sing my thanks with a harp,
    magnificent God, my God.

Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul?
    Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God—
    soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face.
    He’s my God.
