詩篇 38

受苦者的祈求

大衛求上帝眷顧的詩。

1耶和華啊,
求你不要在發怒時懲罰我,
不要在烈怒下管教我。
因為你的箭射穿我,
你的手擊打我。
你的怒氣使我渾身是病,
我的罪惡使我骨頭朽爛。
我的罪惡滔天,使我不堪其重。
我因愚昧而傷口潰爛流膿。
我疼得彎腰駝背,
終日哀傷。
我的腰灼痛難忍,
我渾身是病。
我精疲力盡,徹底崩潰;
我心中悲傷,呻吟不止。
主啊,你知道我的渴望,
聽見了我的歎息。
10 我的心砰砰直跳,
氣力衰竭,
眼睛黯淡無光。
11 因我的疾病,朋友同伴迴避我,
親人遠離我。
12 謀害我的人設下陷阱,
想害我的人威脅我,
整天圖謀奸計。
13 但我像聽不見的聾子,
無法說話的啞巴。
14 我就像一個不能聽、不能辯的人。
15 耶和華啊,我等候你;
主,我的上帝啊,你必應允我。
16 我曾求告你,
別讓他們幸災樂禍,
在我失腳時沾沾自喜。
17 我快要跌倒,
我的痛苦無休無止。
18 我要承認我的罪過,
罪惡使我心裡惴惴不安。
19 我的仇敵勢力強大,
無故恨我的人不計其數。
20 我追求良善,
他們就恨我,以惡報善。
21 耶和華啊,求你不要撇棄我!
我的上帝啊,求你不要遠離我!
22 拯救我的主啊,
求你快來幫助我!

New Living Translation

Psalm 38

Psalm 38

A psalm of David, asking God to remember him.

O Lord, don’t rebuke me in your anger
    or discipline me in your rage!
Your arrows have struck deep,
    and your blows are crushing me.
Because of your anger, my whole body is sick;
    my health is broken because of my sins.
My guilt overwhelms me—
    it is a burden too heavy to bear.
My wounds fester and stink
    because of my foolish sins.
I am bent over and racked with pain.
    All day long I walk around filled with grief.
A raging fever burns within me,
    and my health is broken.
I am exhausted and completely crushed.
    My groans come from an anguished heart.

You know what I long for, Lord;
    you hear my every sigh.
10 My heart beats wildly, my strength fails,
    and I am going blind.
11 My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease.
    Even my own family stands at a distance.
12 Meanwhile, my enemies lay traps to kill me.
    Those who wish me harm make plans to ruin me.
    All day long they plan their treachery.

13 But I am deaf to all their threats.
    I am silent before them as one who cannot speak.
14 I choose to hear nothing,
    and I make no reply.
15 For I am waiting for you, O Lord.
    You must answer for me, O Lord my God.
16 I prayed, “Don’t let my enemies gloat over me
    or rejoice at my downfall.”

17 I am on the verge of collapse,
    facing constant pain.
18 But I confess my sins;
    I am deeply sorry for what I have done.
19 I have many aggressive enemies;
    they hate me without reason.
20 They repay me evil for good
    and oppose me for pursuing good.
21 Do not abandon me, O Lord.
    Do not stand at a distance, my God.
22 Come quickly to help me,
    O Lord my savior.
