诗篇 71

一个老年人的祈祷

1耶和华啊,我投靠了你,
求你使我永不蒙羞。
求你凭公义搭救我,
侧耳听我的恳求,拯救我。
求你成为保护我的磐石,
让我可以随时投靠你。
求你下令救我,
因为你是我的磐石和堡垒。
我的上帝啊,
求你从恶人手中拯救我,
从邪恶、残暴之徒掌下拯救我。
主耶和华啊,你是我的盼望,
我从小就信靠你。
你使我出了母胎,
我从出生就依靠你,
我要永远赞美你。
我的遭遇使许多人感到惊骇,
但你是我坚固的避难所。
我口中充满对你的赞美,
终日述说你的荣耀。
我年老时,求你不要丢弃我;
我体力衰微时,求你不要离弃我。
10 我的仇敌议论我,
那些想杀害我的一起策划阴谋,说:
11 “上帝已经丢弃了他。
去追赶、捉拿他吧,
因为无人会救他。”

12 上帝啊,不要远离我;
我的上帝啊,求你快来帮助我!
13 愿我的仇敌在羞辱中灭亡,
愿那些害我的人抱愧蒙羞。
14 我必常常心怀盼望,
向你献上更多的赞美。
15 虽然我无法测度你的公义和拯救之恩,
但我要终日传扬你的作为。
16 主耶和华啊,
我要传扬你大能的作为,
单单述说你的公义。
17 上帝啊,
我从小就受你的教导,
直到今日我仍传扬你奇妙的作为。
18 上帝啊,
就是我年老发白的时候,
求你也不要丢弃我,
好让我把你的大能告诉下一代,世代相传。
19 上帝啊,你的公义高达穹苍,
你成就了奇妙大事。
上帝啊,有谁能像你?
20 你使我经历了许多患难,
最终必使我重获新生,
救我脱离死亡的深渊。
21 你必赐我更大的尊荣,
你必再次安慰我。
22 我的上帝啊,
我要弹琴赞美你的信实;
以色列的圣者啊,
我要伴随着琴声赞美你。
23 你救赎了我的灵魂,
我的口和灵魂都要欢呼歌颂你。
24 我要终日向人述说你的公义,
因为那些想害我的人已经蒙羞受辱。

Amplified Bible

Psalm 71

Prayer of an Old Man for Rescue.

1In you, O Lord, I have put my trust and confidently taken refuge;
Let me never be [a]put to shame.

In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
Incline Your ear to me and save me.

Be to me a rock of refuge and a sheltering stronghold to which I may continually come;
You have given the commandment to save me,
For You are my rock and my fortress.

Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked (godless),
From the grasp of the unrighteous and ruthless man.

For You are my hope;
O Lord God, You are my trust and the source of my confidence from my youth.

Upon You have I relied and been sustained from my birth;
You are He who took me from my mother’s womb and You have been my benefactor from that day.
My praise is continually of You.


I am as a wonder to many,
For You are my strong refuge.

My mouth is filled with Your praise
And with Your glory all day long.

Do not cast me off nor send me away in the time of old age;
Do not abandon me when my strength fails and I am weak.
10 
For my enemies have spoken against me;
Those who watch for my life have consulted together,
11 
Saying, “God has abandoned him;
Pursue and seize him, for there is no one to rescue him.”

12 
O God, do not be far from me;
O my God, come quickly to help me!
13 
Let those who attack my life be ashamed and consumed;
Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor, who seek to injure me.
14 
But as for me, I will wait and hope continually,
And will praise You yet more and more.
15 
My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And of Your [deeds of] salvation all day long,
For their number is more than I know.
16 
I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord God [and in His strength];
I will make mention of Your righteousness, Yours alone.

17 
O God, You have taught me from my youth,
And I still declare Your wondrous works and miraculous deeds.
18 
And even when I am old and gray-headed, O God, do not abandon me,
Until I declare Your [mighty] strength to this generation,
Your power to all who are to come.
19 
Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the [height of the] heavens,
You who have done great things;
O God, who is like You, [who is Your equal]?
20 
You who have shown [b]me many troubles and distresses
Will revive and renew me again,
And will bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21 
May You increase my greatness (honor)
And turn to comfort me.

22 
I will also praise You with the harp,
Your truth and faithfulness, O my God;
To You I will sing praises with the lyre,
O Holy One of Israel.
23 
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You,
And my soul, which You have redeemed.
24 
My tongue also will speak of Your righteousness all day long;
For they are ashamed, for they are humiliated who seek my injury.
