Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 61

祈求上帝保護

大衛作的訓誨詩,交給樂長,用弦樂器。

1上帝啊,求你傾聽我的呼求,
垂聽我的禱告!
我心裡沮喪之時,
從地極呼求你,
求你領我到高高的磐石上。
因為你是我的避難所,
是我抗敵的堅壘。
我要永遠住在你的聖幕裡,
在你翅膀下得蔭庇!(細拉)
上帝啊,你已經聽見我的誓言,
把你賜給敬畏你名之人的產業賜給我。
願你延長王的壽命,
使他的年日恆久。
願他在你的護佑下永遠做王,
求你以慈愛和信實來保護他。
我要永遠歌頌你的名,
天天還我許的願。

The Message

Psalm 61

A David Psalm

11-2 God, listen to me shout,
    bend an ear to my prayer.
When I’m far from anywhere,
    down to my last gasp,
I call out, “Guide me
    up High Rock Mountain!”

3-5 You’ve always given me breathing room,
    a place to get away from it all,
A lifetime pass to your safe-house,
    an open invitation as your guest.
You’ve always taken me seriously, God,
    made me welcome among those who know and love you.

6-8 Let the days of the king add up
    to years and years of good rule.
Set his throne in the full light of God;
    post Steady Love and Good Faith as lookouts,
And I’ll be the poet who sings your glory—
    and live what I sing every day.
