詩篇 44

祈求上帝保護

可拉後裔作的訓誨詩,交給樂長。

1上帝啊,
我們親耳聽過祖先講述你在古時,
在我們祖先時代的作為。
你親手趕出外族,
把我們的祖先安置在那裡;
你擊潰列邦,
使我們的祖先興旺發達。
他們不是靠自己的刀劍征服那裡,
不是靠自己的臂膀得勝,
而是靠你的權能、力量和恩惠,
因為你愛他們。
你是我的君王,我的上帝;
你讓雅各得勝。
我們靠你擊退敵人,
靠你的名踐踏仇敵。
我不倚靠我的弓,
我的劍不能使我得勝。
只有你使我們戰勝敵人,
使我們的仇敵蒙羞。
上帝啊,我們終日以你為榮,
我們永遠讚美你。(細拉)

現在你卻丟棄我們,
讓我們受辱,
不再幫我們的軍隊作戰。
10 你使我們在仇敵面前敗退,
遭敵人擄掠。
11 你使我們如被宰殺的羊,
將我們分散在列國。
12 你把我們廉價賣掉,
視我們一文不值。
13 你使我們遭四鄰辱罵,
被周圍人譏諷、嘲笑。
14 你使我們成為列國的笑柄,
人們對我們連連搖頭。
15 我終日受辱,滿面羞愧,
16 因為咒罵和譭謗我的人譏笑我,仇敵報復我。
17 雖然這一切臨到我們身上,
我們卻沒有忘記你,
也沒有違背你的約。
18 我們對你沒有異心,
也沒有偏離你的道路。
19 你在豺狼出沒的地方壓碎我們,
使死亡的陰影籠罩我們。
20 倘若我們忘記我們的上帝,
或舉手向外邦的神明禱告,
21 上帝怎會不知道呢?
祂洞悉人心中的秘密。
22 為了你,我們終日出生入死,
被視為待宰的羊。
23 主啊,求你醒來,
你為何沉睡?
求你起來,不要永遠丟棄我們。
24 你為何掩面不理我們,
不理會我們所受的苦難和壓迫?
25 我們仆倒在地,橫臥在塵土中。
26 求你起來幫助我們,
施慈愛救贖我們。

Psalm 44

Psalm 44

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

God, we have heard what you did.
    Those who came before us have told us
what you did in their days,
    in days long ago.
By your power you drove out the nations.
    You gave our people homes in the land.
You crushed the people who were there.
    And you made our people do well.
They didn’t win the land with their swords.
    They didn’t gain success by their own power.
Your powerful right hand and your mighty arm gave them victory.
    You gave them success because you loved them.

You are my King and my God.
    You give victories to the people of Jacob.
With your help we push back our enemies.
    By your power we walk all over them.
I put no trust in my bow.
    My sword doesn’t bring me victory.
But you give us victory over our enemies.
    You put them to shame.
All day long we talk about how great God is.
    We will praise your name forever.

But now you have turned your back on us and made us humble.
    You don’t march out with our armies anymore.
10 You made us turn and run from our enemies.
    They have taken what belongs to us.
11 You handed us over to be eaten up like sheep.
    You have scattered us among the nations.
12 You sold your people for very little.
    You didn’t gain anything when you sold them.

13 You have made us something that our neighbors laugh at.
    Those who live around us make fun of us and tease us.
14 The nations make jokes about us.
    They shake their heads at us.
15 All day long I have to live with my shame.
    My face is covered with it.
16 That’s because they laugh at me and attack me with their words.
    They want to get even with me.

17 All of this happened to us,
    even though we had not forgotten you.
    We had not broken the covenant you made with us.
18 Our hearts had not turned away from you.
    Our feet had not wandered from your path.
19 But you crushed us and left us to the wild dogs.
    You covered us over with deep darkness.

20 We didn’t forget our God.
    We didn’t spread out our hands in prayer to a false god.
21 If we had, God would have discovered it.
    He knows the secrets of our hearts.
22 But because of you, we face death all day long.
    We are considered as sheep to be killed.

23 Lord, wake up! Why are you sleeping?
    Get up! Don’t say no to us forever.
24 Why do you turn your face away from us?
    Why do you forget our pain and troubles?

25 We are brought down to the dust.
    Our bodies lie flat on the ground.
26 Rise up and help us.
    Save us because of your faithful love.
