詩篇 42

卷二:詩篇42—72

流落異鄉者的禱告

可拉後裔作的訓誨詩,交給樂長。

1上帝啊,我的心切慕你,
像鹿切慕溪水。
我心裡渴慕上帝,
渴慕永活的上帝,
我何時才能去朝拜祂呢?
我不吃不喝,晝夜以淚洗面,
人們整天譏笑我:
「你的上帝在哪裡?」
從前我帶領眾人浩浩蕩蕩去上帝的殿,
在歡呼、感恩聲中一起過節。
我回想這些事,
心中無限憂傷。
我的心啊!
你為何沮喪?為何煩躁?
要仰望上帝,
因為我還要讚美祂——我的救主,我的上帝。

我的上帝啊,我心中沮喪,
便在約旦河、黑門山和米薩山想起你。
你的瀑布發出巨響,
迴盪在深淵之間,
你的洪濤巨浪淹沒我。
白天耶和華將祂的慈愛澆灌我;
夜間我歌頌祂,
向賜我生命的上帝禱告。
我對上帝——我的磐石說:
「你為何忘記我?
為何要我受仇敵的攻擊,使我哀傷不已呢?」
10 仇敵的辱罵刺骨鑽心。
他們整天對我說:
「你的上帝在哪裡?」
11 我的心啊!
你為何沮喪?為何煩躁?
要仰望上帝,
因為我還要讚美祂——我的救主,我的上帝。

Psalm 42

BOOK II

Psalms 42–72

Psalm 42

For the director of music. A maskil of the Sons of Korah.

A deer longs for streams of water.
    God, I long for you in the same way.
I am thirsty for God. I am thirsty for the living God.
    When can I go and meet with him?
My tears have been my food
    day and night.
All day long people say to me,
    “Where is your God?”
When I remember what has happened,
    I tell God all my troubles.
I remember how I used to walk to the house of God.
    The Mighty One guarded my steps.
We shouted with joy and praised God
    as we went along with the joyful crowd.

My spirit, why are you so sad?
    Why are you so upset deep down inside me?
Put your hope in God.
    Once again I will have reason to praise him.
    He is my Savior and my God.

My spirit is very sad deep down inside me.
    So I will remember you here where the Jordan River begins.
I will remember you here on the Hermon mountains
    and on Mount Mizar.
You have sent wave upon wave of trouble over me.
    It roars down on me like a waterfall.
All your waves and breakers have rolled over me.

During the day the Lord sends his love to me.
    During the night I sing about him.
    I say a prayer to the God who gives me life.

I say to God my Rock,
    “Why have you forgotten me?
Why must I go around in sorrow?
    Why am I treated so badly by my enemies?”
10 My body suffers deadly pain
    as my enemies make fun of me.
All day long they say to me,
    “Where is your God?”

11 My spirit, why are you so sad?
    Why are you so upset deep down inside me?
Put your hope in God.
    Once again I will have reason to praise him.
    He is my Savior and my God.
