詩篇 43

流亡異鄉者的禱告

1上帝啊,
求你為我伸張正義,
在不虔敬的人面前為我辯護,
救我脫離詭詐邪惡的人。
你是保護我的上帝,
你為何丟棄我?
為何讓我受仇敵的攻擊,
使我哀傷不已呢?
求你以光明和真理引導我,
領我到你的聖山,到你的居所。
我要到上帝的祭壇前,
到賜我喜樂的上帝面前。
上帝啊,我的上帝,
我要彈琴讚美你。
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。

The Message

Psalm 43

11-2 Clear my name, God; stick up for me
    against these loveless, immoral people.
Get me out of here, away
    from these lying degenerates.
I counted on you, God.
    Why did you walk out on me?
Why am I pacing the floor, wringing my hands
    over these outrageous people?

3-4 Give me your lantern and compass,
    give me a map,
So I can find my way to the sacred mountain,
    to the place of your presence,
To enter the place of worship,
    meet my exuberant God,
Sing my thanks with a harp,
    magnificent God, my God.

Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul?
    Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God—
    soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face.
    He’s my God.
