Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 4

求助的晚禱

大衛的詩,交給樂長,弦樂器伴奏。

1稱我為義人的上帝啊!
我呼求的時候,求你回答。
你曾救我脫離困境,
現在求你憐憫我,
垂聽我的禱告。
世人啊!你們把我的榮耀變為羞辱要到何時呢?
你們追求虛謊之事要到何時呢?(細拉)
要知道,耶和華已經把敬虔人分別出來,使之聖潔,歸祂自己。
祂必垂聽我的祈求。
不要因生氣而犯罪;
躺在床上的時候要默然思想。(細拉)
要獻上當獻的祭物,
信靠耶和華。
許多人說:「誰會善待我們呢?」
耶和華啊,
求你的聖容光照我們。
你使我比那收穫五穀新酒的人更喜樂。
只有你耶和華使我安然居住,
我必高枕無憂。

The Message

Psalm 4

A David Psalm

1When I call, give me answers. God, take my side!
Once, in a tight place, you gave me room;
Now I’m in trouble again: grace me! hear me!

You rabble—how long do I put up with your scorn?
How long will you lust after lies?
How long will you live crazed by illusion?

Look at this: look
Who got picked by God!
He listens the split second I call to him.

4-5 Complain if you must, but don’t lash out.
Keep your mouth shut, and let your heart do the talking.
Build your case before God and wait for his verdict.

6-7 Why is everyone hungry for more? “More, more,” they say.
“More, more.”
I have God’s more-than-enough,
More joy in one ordinary day

7-8 Than they get in all their shopping sprees.
At day’s end I’m ready for sound sleep,
For you, God, have put my life back together.
