祈求上帝施恩

大衛的祈禱。

1耶和華啊,我窮苦無助,
求你垂聽我的禱告,應允我。
求你保護我的性命,
因為我忠於你。
你是我的上帝,我信靠你,
求你拯救僕人。
主啊,我終日向你呼求,
求你憐憫我。
主啊,我的心仰望你,
求你賜我歡樂。
主啊,你良善仁慈,樂意赦免,
以無限的慈愛待一切求告你的人。
耶和華啊,求你聽我的禱告,
垂聽我的懇求。
患難之時,我要向你呼求,
因為你必應允我。
主啊,
眾神明中沒有一位能與你相比,
你的作為無與倫比。
主啊,
你創造的萬國都要來敬拜你,
將榮耀歸給你的名。
10 因為你偉大無比,行事奇妙,
唯有你是上帝。
11 耶和華啊,求你教我行你的道,
我要行在你的真理中,
求你使我一心敬畏你。
12 主——我的上帝啊,
我要全心全意地讚美你,
我要永遠將榮耀歸給你的名。
13 因為你深愛我,
從陰間的深處拯救了我。
14 上帝啊,狂傲的人攻擊我,
一群兇殘之徒要殺害我,
他們藐視你。
15 但主啊,
你是有憐憫和恩典的上帝,
不輕易發怒,充滿慈愛,
無比信實。
16 求你垂顧我,憐憫我,
賜力量給你的僕人,
拯救你婢女的兒子。
17 求你賜下恩待我的憑據,
使那些恨我的人見狀就抱愧蒙羞,
因為你耶和華幫助我、安慰我。

The Message

Psalm 86

A David Psalm

11-7 Bend an ear, God; answer me.
    I’m one miserable wretch!
Keep me safe—haven’t I lived a good life?
    Help your servant—I’m depending on you!
You’re my God; have mercy on me.
    I count on you from morning to night.
Give your servant a happy life;
    I put myself in your hands!
You’re well-known as good and forgiving,
    bighearted to all who ask for help.
Pay attention, God, to my prayer;
    bend down and listen to my cry for help.
Every time I’m in trouble I call on you,
    confident that you’ll answer.

8-10 There’s no one quite like you among the gods, O Lord,
    and nothing to compare with your works.
All the nations you made are on their way,
    ready to give honor to you, O Lord,
Ready to put your beauty on display,
    parading your greatness,
And the great things you do—
    God, you’re the one, there’s no one but you!

11-17 Train me, God, to walk straight;
    then I’ll follow your true path.
Put me together, one heart and mind;
    then, undivided, I’ll worship in joyful fear.
From the bottom of my heart I thank you, dear Lord;
    I’ve never kept secret what you’re up to.
You’ve always been great toward me—what love!
    You snatched me from the brink of disaster!
God, these bullies have reared their heads!
    A gang of thugs is after me—
    and they don’t care a thing about you.
But you, O God, are both tender and kind,
    not easily angered, immense in love,
    and you never, never quit.
So look me in the eye and show kindness,
    give your servant the strength to go on,
    save your dear, dear child!
Make a show of how much you love me
    so the bullies who hate me will stand there slack-jawed,
As you, God, gently and powerfully
    put me back on my feet.
