Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 10

求上帝懲治惡人

1耶和華啊,你為何遠遠站著?
為何在我遭難時隱藏起來?
惡人狂妄地追逼窮苦人,
願他們落入自己所設的圈套。
惡人誇耀自己的貪慾,
貪婪的人憎恨、咒詛耶和華。
他們狂傲自大,心中沒有上帝,
從不尋求耶和華。
他們凡事順利,
對你的審判不屑一顧,
對所有的仇敵嗤之以鼻。
他們自以為可以屹立不倒,
世世代代永不遭殃。
他們滿口咒詛、謊話和恐嚇之言,
舌頭沾滿禍害和邪惡。
他們埋伏在村莊,
暗中監視受害者,殺害無辜。
他們像獅子埋伏在暗處,
獵取無助的人,
用網羅拖走他們。
10 不幸的人被擊垮,
倒在他們的暴力下。
11 他們自言自語:「上帝忘記了,
祂掩面不理這些事!」
12 耶和華啊,求你起來!
上帝啊,求你舉手施罰,
不要忘記無助的人!
13 惡人為何輕視上帝,
以為上帝不會追究呢?
14 但你已看到世人的疾苦,
隨時伸出援手。
困苦無助的人投靠你,
你是孤兒的幫助。
15 求你打斷惡人的臂膀,
徹底追究他們的罪惡。
16 耶和華永永遠遠是君王,
列邦必從祂的土地上滅亡。
17 耶和華啊,
你知道困苦人的願望,
你必垂聽他們的呼求,
安慰他們。
18 你為孤兒和受欺壓的人伸冤,
使渺小的世人不能再恐嚇他們。

New Living Translation

Psalm 10

Psalm 10

O Lord, why do you stand so far away?
    Why do you hide when I am in trouble?
The wicked arrogantly hunt down the poor.
    Let them be caught in the evil they plan for others.
For they brag about their evil desires;
    they praise the greedy and curse the Lord.

The wicked are too proud to seek God.
    They seem to think that God is dead.
Yet they succeed in everything they do.
    They do not see your punishment awaiting them.
    They sneer at all their enemies.
They think, “Nothing bad will ever happen to us!
    We will be free of trouble forever!”

Their mouths are full of cursing, lies, and threats.[a]
    Trouble and evil are on the tips of their tongues.
They lurk in ambush in the villages,
    waiting to murder innocent people.
    They are always searching for helpless victims.
Like lions crouched in hiding,
    they wait to pounce on the helpless.
Like hunters they capture the helpless
    and drag them away in nets.
10 Their helpless victims are crushed;
    they fall beneath the strength of the wicked.
11 The wicked think, “God isn’t watching us!
    He has closed his eyes and won’t even see what we do!”

12 Arise, O Lord!
    Punish the wicked, O God!
    Do not ignore the helpless!
13 Why do the wicked get away with despising God?
    They think, “God will never call us to account.”
14 But you see the trouble and grief they cause.
    You take note of it and punish them.
The helpless put their trust in you.
    You defend the orphans.

15 Break the arms of these wicked, evil people!
    Go after them until the last one is destroyed.
16 The Lord is king forever and ever!
    The godless nations will vanish from the land.
17 Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless.
    Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.
18 You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed,
    so mere people can no longer terrify them.
