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。

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 120

Psalm 120

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

I call out to the Lord when I’m in trouble,
    and he answers me.
Lord, save me from people whose lips tell lies.
    Save me from people whose tongues don’t tell the truth.

What will the Lord do to you, you lying tongue?
    And what more will he do?
He will punish you with the sharp arrows of a soldier.
    He will punish you with burning coals from a desert bush.

How terrible it is for me to live in the tents of the people of Meshek!
    How terrible to live in the tents of the people of Kedar!
I have lived too long
    among those who hate peace.
I want peace.
    But when I speak, they want war.
