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。

New Living Translation

Psalm 44

Psalm 44

For the choir director: A psalm[a] of the descendants of Korah.

O God, we have heard it with our own ears—
    our ancestors have told us
of all you did in their day,
    in days long ago:
You drove out the pagan nations by your power
    and gave all the land to our ancestors.
You crushed their enemies
    and set our ancestors free.
They did not conquer the land with their swords;
    it was not their own strong arm that gave them victory.
It was your right hand and strong arm
    and the blinding light from your face that helped them,
    for you loved them.

You are my King and my God.
    You command victories for Israel.[b]
Only by your power can we push back our enemies;
    only in your name can we trample our foes.
I do not trust in my bow;
    I do not count on my sword to save me.
You are the one who gives us victory over our enemies;
    you disgrace those who hate us.
O God, we give glory to you all day long
    and constantly praise your name. Interlude

But now you have tossed us aside in dishonor.
    You no longer lead our armies to battle.
10 You make us retreat from our enemies
    and allow those who hate us to plunder our land.
11 You have butchered us like sheep
    and scattered us among the nations.
12 You sold your precious people for a pittance,
    making nothing on the sale.
13 You let our neighbors mock us.
    We are an object of scorn and derision to those around us.
14 You have made us the butt of their jokes;
    they shake their heads at us in scorn.
15 We can’t escape the constant humiliation;
    shame is written across our faces.
16 All we hear are the taunts of our mockers.
    All we see are our vengeful enemies.

17 All this has happened though we have not forgotten you.
    We have not violated your covenant.
18 Our hearts have not deserted you.
    We have not strayed from your path.
19 Yet you have crushed us in the jackal’s desert home.
    You have covered us with darkness and death.
20 If we had forgotten the name of our God
    or spread our hands in prayer to foreign gods,
21 God would surely have known it,
    for he knows the secrets of every heart.
22 But for your sake we are killed every day;
    we are being slaughtered like sheep.

23 Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep?
    Get up! Do not reject us forever.
24 Why do you look the other way?
    Why do you ignore our suffering and oppression?
25 We collapse in the dust,
    lying face down in the dirt.
26 Rise up! Help us!
    Ransom us because of your unfailing love.
