詩篇 69

祈求上帝拯救的禱告

大衛作的詩,交給樂長,調用「百合花」。

1上帝啊,求你拯救我,
因為洪水快把我淹沒;
我深陷泥沼,無法站穩腳;
我落入深淵,被洪流淹沒。
我連連呼救,已聲嘶力竭;
我期盼上帝的幫助,望眼欲穿。
無故恨我的人不計其數,
無故害我的仇敵勢力強大,
逼我償還我沒有偷過的東西。
上帝啊,你知道我的愚昧,
我的罪惡也瞞不過你。
主——萬軍之耶和華啊,
求你不要使等候你的人因我而受辱;
以色列的上帝啊,
求你不要讓信靠你的人因我而蒙羞。
我為了你的緣故遭受辱罵,
羞辱滿面。
我的弟兄視我為陌生人,
我的手足看我為外人。
我對你的殿充滿炙熱的愛,
辱罵你之人的辱罵都落在我身上。
10 我悲傷禁食,
他們就羞辱我。
11 我披上麻衣,
他們就譏笑我。
12 我成了街談巷議的話題,
醉漢作歌取笑我。

13 可是,耶和華啊,
在你悅納人的時候,
我向你禱告。
上帝啊,
求你以你的大愛和信實拯救我。
14 求你救我脫離泥沼,
不要讓我沉下去;
求你救我脫離恨我的人,
使我離開深淵。
15 求你不要讓洪水淹沒我,
深淵吞滅我,
墳墓吞噬我。

16 耶和華啊,求你答應我的禱告,
因為你充滿慈愛和良善;
求你以無限的憐憫眷顧我。
17 求你不要掩面不理你的僕人。
我正身陷困境,
求你快快答應我。
18 求你前來拯救我,
把我從仇敵手中救贖出來。
19 你知道我受的辱罵、欺凌和羞辱,
你看到了我仇敵的所作所為。
20 他們的辱罵使我心碎,
令我絕望無助。
我渴望有人同情,卻沒有一個;
期望有人安慰,卻無一人。
21 他們給我苦膽當食物,
又拿醋給我解渴。

22 願他們面前的宴席變為網羅,
成為他們的陷阱。
23 願他們眼目昏暗,無法看見;
願他們哆哆嗦嗦,直不起腰來。
24 求你把烈怒傾倒在他們身上,
將怒氣撒向他們。
25 願他們的家園一片荒涼,
願他們的帳篷無人居住。
26 因為他們迫害你擊打過的人,
嘲笑你所打傷之人的痛苦。
27 求你清算他們的種種罪行,
不要讓他們有份於你的拯救之恩。
28 願他們的名字從生命冊上被抹去,
不得和義人的名字列在一起。
29 上帝啊,
我陷入痛苦和憂傷,
求你拯救我,保護我。
30 我要用歌聲讚美上帝的名,
以感恩的心尊崇祂。
31 這要比獻上有蹄有角的公牛等祭牲更討耶和華喜悅。
32 卑微的人看見這一切就歡喜快樂,
願你們尋求上帝的人精神振奮。
33 耶和華垂聽窮苦人的祈求,
不輕看祂被囚的子民。
34 願天地都讚美祂,
願海和其中的一切都讚美祂!
35 因為上帝必拯救錫安,
重建猶大的城邑。
祂的子民要住在那裡,
擁有那片土地。
36 祂僕人的後裔要承受那地方為業,
凡愛祂的人都要住在那裡。

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 69

Psalm 69

For the director of music. A psalm of David to the tune of “Lilies.”

God, save me.
    My troubles are like a flood.
    I’m up to my neck in them.
I’m sinking in deep mud.
    I have no firm place to stand.
I am out in deep water.
    The waves roll over me.
I’m worn out from calling for help.
    My throat is very dry.
My eyes grow tired
    looking for my God.
Those who hate me without any reason
    are more than the hairs on my head.
Many people who don’t have any reason to be my enemies
    are trying to destroy me.
They force me to give back
    what I didn’t steal.

God, you know how foolish I’ve been.
    My guilt is not hidden from you.

Lord, you are the Lord who rules over all.
    May those who put their hope in you not be dishonored because of me.
You are the God of Israel.
    May those who worship you not be put to shame because of me.
Because of you, people laugh at me.
    My face is covered with shame.
I’m an outsider to my own family.
    I’m a stranger to my own mother’s children.
My great love for your house destroys me.
    Those who make fun of you make fun of me also.
10 When I weep and go without eating,
    they laugh at me.
11 When I put on rough clothing to show how sad I am,
    people make jokes about me.
12 Those who gather in public places make fun of me.
    Those who get drunk make up songs about me.

13 But Lord, I pray to you.
    May this be the time you help me.
God, answer me because you love me so much.
    Save me, as you always do.
14 Save me from the trouble I’m in.
    It’s like slippery mud, so don’t let me sink in it.
Save me from those who hate me.
    Save me from the deep water I’m in.
15 Don’t let the floods cover me.
    Don’t let the deep water swallow me up.
    Don’t let the grave close its mouth over me.
16 Lord, answer me because your love is so good.
    Turn to me because you are so kind.
17 Don’t turn your face away from me.
    Answer me quickly. I’m in trouble.
18 Come near and save me.
    Set me free from my enemies.

19 You know how they make fun of me.
    They dishonor me and put me to shame.
    You know all about my enemies.
20 They have broken my heart by saying evil things about me.
    It has left me helpless.
I looked for pity, but I didn’t find any.
    I looked for someone to comfort me, but I didn’t find anyone.
21 They put bitter spices in my food.
    They gave me vinegar when I was thirsty.

22 Let their feast be a trap and a snare.
    Let my enemies get what’s coming to them.
23 Let their eyes grow weak so they can’t see.
    Let their backs be bent forever.
24 Pour out your anger on them.
    Let them feel what it is like.
25 May their homes be deserted.
    May no one live in their tents.
26 They attack those you have wounded.
    They talk about the pain of those you have hurt.
27 Charge them with one crime after another.
    Don’t save them.
28 May their names be erased from the book of life.
    Don’t include them in the list of those who do right.

29 I’m in pain. I’m in deep trouble.
    God, save me and keep me safe.

30 I will praise God’s name by singing to him.
    I will bring him glory by giving him thanks.
31 That will please the Lord more than offering him an ox.
    It will please him more than offering him a bull with its horns and hooves.
32 Poor people will see it and be glad.
    The hearts of those who worship God will be strengthened.
33 The Lord hears those who are in need.
    He doesn’t forget his people in prison.

34 Let heaven and earth praise him.
    Let the oceans and everything that moves in them praise him.
35 God will save Zion.
    He will build the cities of Judah again.
Then people will live in them and own the land.
36     The children of those who serve God will receive it.
    Those who love him will live there.
