Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 130

患難中求助的禱告

上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1耶和華啊!
我在絕望的深淵中向你呼求。
主啊,求你垂聽我的呼求,
側耳聽我的祈求。
主耶和華啊,
倘若你追究我們的罪過,
誰能站得住呢?
然而,你赦免我們,
所以你當受敬畏。

我等候耶和華,一心等候祂,
祂的話語是我的盼望。
我一心等候耶和華,
比守夜的盼望天明還要迫切,
比守夜的盼望天明還要迫切。
以色列啊,要信靠耶和華,
因為祂有慈愛,能完全救贖我們。
祂必把以色列從罪惡中救贖出來。

The Message

Psalm 130

A Pilgrim Song

11-2 Help, God—the bottom has fallen out of my life!
    Master, hear my cry for help!
Listen hard! Open your ears!
    Listen to my cries for mercy.

3-4 If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
    who would stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
    and that’s why you’re worshiped.

5-6 I pray to God—my life a prayer—
    and wait for what he’ll say and do.
My life’s on the line before God, my Lord,
    waiting and watching till morning,
    waiting and watching till morning.

7-8 O Israel, wait and watch for God
    with God’s arrival comes love,
    with God’s arrival comes generous redemption.
No doubt about it—he’ll redeem Israel,
    buy back Israel from captivity to sin.
