Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 120

祈求上帝幫助

上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1我在患難中向耶和華禱告,
祂就應允了我。
耶和華啊,
求你救我遠離虛謊詭詐之徒。
詭詐之徒啊!
你會受到怎樣的懲罰呢?
你會有什麼下場呢?
等待你的是勇士的利箭和炙熱的炭火。
我寄居在米設和基達的人當中有禍了!
我住在憎惡和平的人當中太久了。
我愛和平,
但我倡導和平的時候,
他們卻要戰爭。

The Message

Psalm 120

A Pilgrim Song

11-2 I’m in trouble. I cry to God,
    desperate for an answer:
“Deliver me from the liars, God!
    They smile so sweetly but lie through their teeth.”

3-4 Do you know what’s next, can you see what’s coming,
    all you barefaced liars?
Pointed arrows and burning coals
    will be your reward.

5-7 I’m doomed to live in Meshech,
    cursed with a home in Kedar,
My whole life lived camping
    among quarreling neighbors.
I’m all for peace, but the minute
    I tell them so, they go to war!
