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。”

Psalm 58

Psalm 58[a]

For the director of music. To the tune of ‘Do Not Destroy’. Of David. A miktam.[b]

Do you rulers indeed speak justly?
    Do you judge people with equity?
No, in your heart you devise injustice,
    and your hands mete out violence on the earth.

Even from birth the wicked go astray;
    from the womb they are wayward, spreading lies.
Their venom is like the venom of a snake,
    like that of a cobra that has stopped its ears,
that will not heed the tune of the charmer,
    however skilful the enchanter may be.

Break the teeth in their mouths, O God;
    Lord, tear out the fangs of those lions!
Let them vanish like water that flows away;
    when they draw the bow, let their arrows fall short.
May they be like a slug that melts away as it moves along,
    like a stillborn child that never sees the sun.

Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns –
    whether they be green or dry – the wicked will be swept away.[c]
10 The righteous will be glad when they are avenged,
    when they dip their feet in the blood of the wicked.
11 Then people will say,
    ‘Surely the righteous still are rewarded;
    surely there is a God who judges the earth.’
