诗篇 69

祈求上帝拯救的祷告

大卫作的诗,交给乐长,调用“百合花”。

1上帝啊,求你拯救我,
因为洪水快把我淹没;
我深陷泥沼,无法站稳脚;
我落入深渊,被洪流淹没。
我连连呼救,已声嘶力竭;
我期盼上帝的帮助,望眼欲穿。
无故恨我的人不计其数,
无故害我的仇敌势力强大,
逼我偿还我没有偷过的东西。
上帝啊,你知道我的愚昧,
我的罪恶也瞒不过你。
主——万军之耶和华啊,
求你不要使等候你的人因我而受辱;
以色列的上帝啊,
求你不要让信靠你的人因我而蒙羞。
我为了你的缘故遭受辱骂,
羞辱满面。
我的弟兄视我为陌生人,
我的手足看我为外人。
我对你的殿充满炙热的爱,
辱骂你之人的辱骂都落在我身上。
10 我悲伤禁食,
他们就羞辱我。
11 我披上麻衣,
他们就讥笑我。
12 我成了街谈巷议的话题,
醉汉作歌取笑我。

13 可是,耶和华啊,
在你悦纳人的时候,
我向你祷告。
上帝啊,
求你以你的大爱和信实拯救我。
14 求你救我脱离泥沼,
不要让我沉下去;
求你救我脱离恨我的人,
使我离开深渊。
15 求你不要让洪水淹没我,
深渊吞灭我,
坟墓吞噬我。

16 耶和华啊,求你答应我的祷告,
因为你充满慈爱和良善;
求你以无限的怜悯眷顾我。
17 求你不要掩面不理你的仆人。
我正身陷困境,
求你快快答应我。
18 求你前来拯救我,
把我从仇敌手中救赎出来。
19 你知道我受的辱骂、欺凌和羞辱,
你看到了我仇敌的所作所为。
20 他们的辱骂使我心碎,
令我绝望无助。
我渴望有人同情,却没有一个;
期望有人安慰,却无一人。
21 他们给我苦胆当食物,
又拿醋给我解渴。

22 愿他们面前的宴席变为网罗,
成为他们的陷阱。
23 愿他们眼目昏暗,无法看见;
愿他们哆哆嗦嗦,直不起腰来。
24 求你把烈怒倾倒在他们身上,
将怒气撒向他们。
25 愿他们的家园一片荒凉,
愿他们的帐篷无人居住。
26 因为他们迫害你击打过的人,
嘲笑你所打伤之人的痛苦。
27 求你清算他们的种种罪行,
不要让他们有份于你的拯救之恩。
28 愿他们的名字从生命册上被抹去,
不得和义人的名字列在一起。
29 上帝啊,
我陷入痛苦和忧伤,
求你拯救我,保护我。
30 我要用歌声赞美上帝的名,
以感恩的心尊崇祂。
31 这要比献上有蹄有角的公牛等祭牲更讨耶和华喜悦。
32 卑微的人看见这一切就欢喜快乐,
愿你们寻求上帝的人精神振奋。
33 耶和华垂听穷苦人的祈求,
不轻看祂被囚的子民。
34 愿天地都赞美祂,
愿海和其中的一切都赞美祂!
35 因为上帝必拯救锡安,
重建犹大的城邑。
祂的子民要住在那里,
拥有那片土地。
36 祂仆人的后裔要承受那地方为业,
凡爱祂的人都要住在那里。

Psalm 69

Psalm 69

For the director of music. A psalm of David to the tune of “Lilies.”

God, save me.
    My troubles are like a flood.
    I’m up to my neck in them.
I’m sinking in deep mud.
    I have no firm place to stand.
I am out in deep water.
    The waves roll over me.
I’m worn out from calling for help.
    My throat is very dry.
My eyes grow tired
    looking for my God.
Those who hate me without any reason
    are more than the hairs on my head.
Many people who don’t have any reason to be my enemies
    are trying to destroy me.
They force me to give back
    what I didn’t steal.

God, you know how foolish I’ve been.
    My guilt is not hidden from you.

Lord, you are the Lord who rules over all.
    May those who put their hope in you not be dishonored because of me.
You are the God of Israel.
    May those who worship you not be put to shame because of me.
Because of you, people laugh at me.
    My face is covered with shame.
I’m an outsider to my own family.
    I’m a stranger to my own mother’s children.
My great love for your house destroys me.
    Those who make fun of you make fun of me also.
10 When I weep and go without eating,
    they laugh at me.
11 When I put on rough clothing to show how sad I am,
    people make jokes about me.
12 Those who gather in public places make fun of me.
    Those who get drunk make up songs about me.

13 But Lord, I pray to you.
    May this be the time you help me.
God, answer me because you love me so much.
    Save me, as you always do.
14 Save me from the trouble I’m in.
    It’s like slippery mud, so don’t let me sink in it.
Save me from those who hate me.
    Save me from the deep water I’m in.
15 Don’t let the floods cover me.
    Don’t let the deep water swallow me up.
    Don’t let the grave close its mouth over me.
16 Lord, answer me because your love is so good.
    Turn to me because you are so kind.
17 Don’t turn your face away from me.
    Answer me quickly. I’m in trouble.
18 Come near and save me.
    Set me free from my enemies.

19 You know how they make fun of me.
    They dishonor me and put me to shame.
    You know all about my enemies.
20 They have broken my heart by saying evil things about me.
    It has left me helpless.
I looked for pity, but I didn’t find any.
    I looked for someone to comfort me, but I didn’t find anyone.
21 They put bitter spices in my food.
    They gave me vinegar when I was thirsty.

22 Let their feast be a trap and a snare.
    Let my enemies get what’s coming to them.
23 Let their eyes grow weak so they can’t see.
    Let their backs be bent forever.
24 Pour out your anger on them.
    Let them feel what it is like.
25 May their homes be deserted.
    May no one live in their tents.
26 They attack those you have wounded.
    They talk about the pain of those you have hurt.
27 Charge them with one crime after another.
    Don’t save them.
28 May their names be erased from the book of life.
    Don’t include them in the list of those who do right.

29 I’m in pain. I’m in deep trouble.
    God, save me and keep me safe.

30 I will praise God’s name by singing to him.
    I will bring him glory by giving him thanks.
31 That will please the Lord more than offering him an ox.
    It will please him more than offering him a bull with its horns and hooves.
32 Poor people will see it and be glad.
    The hearts of those who worship God will be strengthened.
33 The Lord hears those who are in need.
    He doesn’t forget his people in prison.

34 Let heaven and earth praise him.
    Let the oceans and everything that moves in them praise him.
35 God will save Zion.
    He will build the cities of Judah again.
Then people will live in them and own the land.
36     The children of those who serve God will receive it.
    Those who love him will live there.
