詩篇 55

被朋友出賣者的禱告

大衛作的訓誨詩,交給樂長,用弦樂器。

1上帝啊,
求你垂聽我的禱告,
不要對我的呼求置之不理。
求你垂聽、應允我的呼求。
我思緒煩亂,坐立不安。
仇敵向我咆哮,
惡人迫害我。
他們帶給我苦難,
怒氣沖沖地辱罵我。
我內心悲痛,
被死亡的恐怖籠罩。
我渾身顫慄,驚恐不已。
啊,但願我能像鴿子展翅飛去,
得享安息。
我要飛到遠方,住在曠野。(細拉)
我要趕快躲進避難所,
避過暴雨狂風。

主啊,
我在城中看見暴力和爭鬥,
求你使他們言語混亂。
10 他們晝夜在城牆上出沒,
城內充滿了邪惡和壓迫,
11 毀壞的勢力到處肆虐,
恐嚇與欺詐遍佈大街小巷。
12 倘若是仇敵辱罵我,
我還能忍受;
倘若是恨我的人欺凌我,
我還可以躲開。
13 可是,竟然是你——我志同道合的夥伴,我的摯友!
14 從前我們情誼深厚,
與眾人同去上帝的殿。
15 願死亡突然抓住我的仇敵,
願他們活活地下陰間,
因為他們的內心和家中罪惡充斥。
16 但我要呼求耶和華上帝,
祂必拯救我。
17 晚上、早晨和中午,
我發出痛苦的呼求,
祂必垂聽。
18 雖然許多人攻擊我,
祂必救我平安脫離險境。
19 永掌王權的上帝必鑒察並懲罰他們,
因為他們頑梗悖逆、不敬畏上帝。

20 我的同伴違背盟約,攻擊朋友。
21 他口蜜腹劍,笑裡藏刀。
22 把你的重擔卸給耶和華,
祂必扶持你。
祂必不讓義人跌倒。

23 上帝啊,
你必把惡人送進滅亡的坑裡。
嗜血成性的騙子必早早夭亡。
但我要信靠你。

Psalm 55

Psalm 55[a]

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A maskil[b] of David.

Listen to my prayer, O God,
    do not ignore my plea;
    hear me and answer me.
My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught
    because of what my enemy is saying,
    because of the threats of the wicked;
for they bring down suffering on me
    and assail me in their anger.

My heart is in anguish within me;
    the terrors of death have fallen on me.
Fear and trembling have beset me;
    horror has overwhelmed me.
I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
    I would fly away and be at rest.
I would flee far away
    and stay in the desert;[c]
I would hurry to my place of shelter,
    far from the tempest and storm.”

Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words,
    for I see violence and strife in the city.
10 Day and night they prowl about on its walls;
    malice and abuse are within it.
11 Destructive forces are at work in the city;
    threats and lies never leave its streets.

12 If an enemy were insulting me,
    I could endure it;
if a foe were rising against me,
    I could hide.
13 But it is you, a man like myself,
    my companion, my close friend,
14 with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship
    at the house of God,
as we walked about
    among the worshipers.

15 Let death take my enemies by surprise;
    let them go down alive to the realm of the dead,
    for evil finds lodging among them.

16 As for me, I call to God,
    and the Lord saves me.
17 Evening, morning and noon
    I cry out in distress,
    and he hears my voice.
18 He rescues me unharmed
    from the battle waged against me,
    even though many oppose me.
19 God, who is enthroned from of old,
    who does not change—
he will hear them and humble them,
    because they have no fear of God.

20 My companion attacks his friends;
    he violates his covenant.
21 His talk is smooth as butter,
    yet war is in his heart;
his words are more soothing than oil,
    yet they are drawn swords.

22 Cast your cares on the Lord
    and he will sustain you;
he will never let
    the righteous be shaken.
23 But you, God, will bring down the wicked
    into the pit of decay;
the bloodthirsty and deceitful
    will not live out half their days.

But as for me, I trust in you.
