Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 82

斥責不公正的審判

亞薩的詩。

1上帝站在天庭的會中,
向眾神明宣佈祂的判決,
說:「你們不秉公行義,
偏袒惡人要到何時呢?(細拉)
你們要為窮人和孤兒主持公道,
為貧寒和受壓迫的人伸張正義。
要救助窮苦的人,
使他們脫離惡人的欺壓。
你們愚昧無知,
行在黑暗中,
大地的根基搖動。
我曾說你們都是神,
都是至高者的兒子,
但你們要跟世人一樣死去,
像人間的王侯一樣滅亡。」
上帝啊,求你起來審判世界,
因為世上的萬國都屬於你。

The Message

Psalm 82

An Asaph Psalm

1God calls the judges into his courtroom,
    he puts all the judges in the dock.

2-4 “Enough! You’ve corrupted justice long enough,
    you’ve let the wicked get away with murder.
You’re here to defend the defenseless,
    to make sure that underdogs get a fair break;
Your job is to stand up for the powerless,
    and prosecute all those who exploit them.”

Ignorant judges! Head-in-the-sand judges!
    They haven’t a clue to what’s going on.
And now everything’s falling apart,
    the world’s coming unglued.

6-7 “I commissioned you judges, each one of you,
    deputies of the High God,
But you’ve betrayed your commission
    and now you’re stripped of your rank, busted.”

O God, give them their just deserts!
    You’ve got the whole world in your hands!
