詩篇 57

被圍困中的呼求

大衛作的詩,交給樂長,調用「休要毀壞」。當時他因逃避掃羅躲進了洞裡。

1上帝啊,求你憐憫我,憐憫我,
因為我投靠你。
我要在你翅膀下得到蔭庇,
直到災難結束。
我向至高的上帝,
向為我成就一切的上帝呼求。
上帝從天上施助、拯救我,
使迫害我的人蒙羞。
上帝必彰顯祂的慈愛和信實。
我被獅子包圍,
躺臥在吃人的野獸中。
他們的牙齒是矛和箭,
舌頭是尖刀。
上帝啊,
願人對你的尊崇超過諸天,
願你的榮耀覆蓋大地。
我的仇敵設下網羅,
我心中沮喪。
他們在我走的路上挖了陷阱,
自己卻掉了進去。(細拉)

上帝啊,我心堅定,我心堅定,
我要唱詩讚美你。
我的心啊,要振奮起來!
琴瑟啊,彈奏吧!
我要喚醒黎明!
主啊,我要在列邦稱謝你,
在列國歌頌你。
10 因為你的慈愛高達諸天,
你的信實廣及穹蒼。
11 上帝啊,
願你得到的尊崇超過諸天,
願你的榮耀覆蓋大地。

The Message

Psalm 57

A David Psalm, When He Hid in a Cave from Saul

11-3 Be good to me, God—and now!
    I’ve run to you for dear life.
I’m hiding out under your wings
    until the hurricane blows over.
I call out to High God,
    the God who holds me together.
He sends orders from heaven and saves me,
    he humiliates those who kick me around.
God delivers generous love,
    he makes good on his word.

I find myself in a pride of lions
    who are wild for a taste of human flesh;
Their teeth are lances and arrows,
    their tongues are sharp daggers.

Soar high in the skies, O God!
    Cover the whole earth with your glory!

They booby-trapped my path;
    I thought I was dead and done for.
They dug a mantrap to catch me,
    and fell in headlong themselves.

7-8 I’m ready, God, so ready,
    ready from head to toe,
Ready to sing, ready to raise a tune:
    “Wake up, soul!
Wake up, harp! wake up, lute!
    Wake up, you sleepyhead sun!”

9-10 I’m thanking you, God, out loud in the streets,
    singing your praises in town and country.
The deeper your love, the higher it goes;
    every cloud is a flag to your faithfulness.

11 Soar high in the skies, O God!
    Cover the whole earth with your glory!
