Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 27

讚美的禱告

大衛的詩。

1耶和華是我的光,我的拯救,
我還怕誰?
耶和華是我的堡壘,
我還怕誰?
當惡人來吞吃我,
仇敵來攻擊我時,
必失足跌倒。
雖然大軍圍攻我,
我心中卻一無所懼;
雖然戰爭來臨,我仍滿懷信心。
我曾向耶和華求一件事,
我還要求,就是能一生住在祂的殿中,
瞻仰祂的榮美,尋求祂的旨意。
危難之時,祂保護我,
把我藏在祂的聖幕裡,
高高地安置在磐石上。
我要昂首面對四圍的敵人,
我要在祂的聖幕裡歡呼獻祭,
歌頌讚美祂。

耶和華啊,求你垂聽我的呼求,
求你恩待我,應允我。
你說:「來尋求我!」
我心中回應:
「耶和華啊,我要尋求你。」
別掩面不理我,
別憤然拒絕你的僕人,
你一向是我的幫助。
拯救我的上帝啊,
別離開我,別撇棄我。
10 縱使父母離棄我,
耶和華也必收留我。
11 耶和華啊,
求你指教我行你的道,
引導我走正路,遠離仇敵。
12 求你不要讓仇敵抓到我,
遂其所願,
因為他們誣告我,恐嚇我。

13 我深信今世必能看見耶和華的美善。
14 要等候耶和華,
要堅定不移地等候耶和華。

The Message

Psalm 27

A David Psalm

1Light, space, zest—
    that’s God!
So, with him on my side I’m fearless,
    afraid of no one and nothing.

    When vandal hordes ride down
    ready to eat me alive,
Those bullies and toughs
    fall flat on their faces.

When besieged,
    I’m calm as a baby.
When all hell breaks loose,
    I’m collected and cool.

I’m asking God for one thing,
    only one thing:
To live with him in his house
    my whole life long.
I’ll contemplate his beauty;
    I’ll study at his feet.

That’s the only quiet, secure place
    in a noisy world,
The perfect getaway,
    far from the buzz of traffic.

God holds me head and shoulders
    above all who try to pull me down.
I’m headed for his place to offer anthems
    that will raise the roof!
Already I’m singing God-songs;
    I’m making music to God.

7-9 Listen, God, I’m calling at the top of my lungs:
    “Be good to me! Answer me!”
When my heart whispered, “Seek God,”
    my whole being replied,
“I’m seeking him!”
    Don’t hide from me now!

9-10 You’ve always been right there for me;
    don’t turn your back on me now.
Don’t throw me out, don’t abandon me;
    you’ve always kept the door open.
My father and mother walked out and left me,
    but God took me in.

11-12 Point me down your highway, God;
    direct me along a well-lighted street;
    show my enemies whose side you’re on.
Don’t throw me to the dogs,
    those liars who are out to get me,
    filling the air with their threats.

13-14 I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness
    in the exuberant earth.
Stay with God!
    Take heart. Don’t quit.
I’ll say it again:
    Stay with God.
