Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 141

求上帝蔭庇

大衛的詩。

1耶和華啊,
我向你呼求,求你快來幫助我;
我向你呼求的時候,求你垂聽。
願我的禱告如香升到你面前,
願我舉手所獻的禱告如同晚祭。
耶和華啊,
求你守住我的口,
看住我的嘴。
耶和華啊,求你不要讓我的心偏向邪惡,
免得我與惡人同流合污;
也不要讓我吃他們的美食。
我情願受義人出於愛心的責打,
他們的責打是良藥,
我不會逃避。
我要不斷地用禱告抵擋惡人的行徑。
他們的首領被拋下懸崖的時候,
他們就會知道我所言不虛。
那些惡人的骨頭散落在墓旁,
好像耕田翻起的土塊。
主耶和華啊,
我仰望你,我投靠你,
求你不要讓我遭害。
求你不要使我落入惡人設下的網羅,
不要掉進他們的陷阱。
10 願他們作繭自縛,
而我可以安然逃脫。

The Message

Psalm 141

A David Psalm

11-2 God, come close. Come quickly!
    Open your ears—it’s my voice you’re hearing!
Treat my prayer as sweet incense rising;
    my raised hands are my evening prayers.

3-7 Post a guard at my mouth, God,
    set a watch at the door of my lips.
Don’t let me so much as dream of evil
    or thoughtlessly fall into bad company.
And these people who only do wrong—
    don’t let them lure me with their sweet talk!
May the Just One set me straight,
    may the Kind One correct me,
Don’t let sin anoint my head.
    I’m praying hard against their evil ways!
Oh, let their leaders be pushed off a high rock cliff;
    make them face the music.
Like a rock pulverized by a maul,
    let their bones be scattered at the gates of hell.

8-10 But God, dear Lord,
    I only have eyes for you.
Since I’ve run for dear life to you,
    take good care of me.
Protect me from their evil scheming,
    from all their demonic subterfuge.
Let the wicked fall flat on their faces,
    while I walk off without a scratch.
