Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 129

求上帝擊退仇敵

上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1以色列要說:
我從小就深受仇敵的迫害,
我從小就深受仇敵的迫害,
但他們沒能勝過我。
他們鞭打我的背,
傷痕如同農夫耕出的長長犁溝。
耶和華是公義的,
祂砍斷了惡人捆綁我的繩索。
願所有憎惡錫安的人狼狽而逃。
願他們像房頂的草,
沒長起來就已枯萎,
割下來不滿一把,
紮起來不足一捆。
沒有一個路過的人說:
「願耶和華賜福給你們!
我們奉耶和華的名祝福你們。」

The Message

Psalm 129

A Pilgrim Song

11-4 “They’ve kicked me around ever since I was young”
    —this is how Israel tells it—
“They’ve kicked me around ever since I was young,
    but they never could keep me down.
Their plowmen plowed long furrows
    up and down my back;
Then God ripped the harnesses
    of the evil plowmen to shreds.”

5-8 Oh, let all those who hate Zion
    grovel in humiliation;
Let them be like grass in shallow ground
    that withers before the harvest,
Before the farmhands can gather it in,
    the harvesters get in the crop,
Before the neighbors have a chance to call out,
    “Congratulations on your wonderful crop!
    We bless you in God’s name!”
