诗篇 58

祈求上帝惩罚恶人

大卫作的诗,交给乐长,调用“休要毁坏”。

1你们做官长的主持公道吗?
你们的审判公正吗?
不,你们心中图谋不义,
你们在地上行凶作恶。
恶人生下来就步入歧途,
一出母胎就离开正道,
谎话连篇。
他们像喷出毒液的毒蛇,
又像耳聋的眼镜蛇,
任法师的邪术再高超,
也听不见他的咒语。
上帝啊,求你敲碎他们的牙齿;
耶和华啊,
求你拔掉这些猛狮的利齿。
愿他们如流水逝去,
愿他们弯弓搭箭时箭头折断。
愿他们像蜗牛一样溶为烂泥,
又如流产的胎儿不见天日。
刹那间,
荆棘还没有把锅烧热的工夫,
上帝必除灭他们。
10 义人必因恶人遭报而欢欣,
并用恶人的血洗脚。
11 这样,人们必说:
“义人终有善报,
确实有一位审判天下的上帝。”

New American Standard Bible

Psalm 58

Prayer for the Punishment of the Wicked.

For the choir director; set to [a]Al-tashheth. A [b]Mikhtam of David.

1Do you indeed [c]speak righteousness, O [d]gods?
Do you judge [e]uprightly, O sons of men?
No, in heart you work unrighteousness;
On earth you weigh out the violence of your hands.
The wicked are estranged from the womb;
These who speak lies go astray from [f]birth.
They have venom like the venom of a serpent;
Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear,
So that it does not hear the voice of [g]charmers,
Or a skillful caster of spells.

O God, shatter their teeth in their mouth;
Break out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord.
Let them flow away like water that runs off;
When he [h]aims his arrows, let them be as [i]headless shafts.
Let them be as a snail which [j]melts away as it goes along,
Like the miscarriages of a woman which never see the sun.
Before your pots can feel the fire of thorns
He will sweep them away with a whirlwind, the [k]green and the burning alike.

10 The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance;
He will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11 And men will say, “Surely there is a [l]reward for the righteous;
Surely there is a God who judges [m]on earth!”
