詩篇 88

求上帝眷顧

可拉後裔的詩,就是以斯拉人希幔的訓誨詩,交給樂長,調用「麻哈拉利暗俄」[a]

1耶和華,拯救我的上帝啊,
我晝夜不停地呼求你。
求你垂聽我的禱告,
傾聽我的呼求。
我飽經患難,
生命在死亡的邊緣。
我被列在下墳墓的人中,
我的精力耗盡。
我被扔在死人中,
如同被殺的人躺在墳墓裡,
被你遺忘,不再蒙你眷顧。
你已經把我扔在漆黑的深淵。
你的烈怒重重地壓著我,
如洶湧波濤把我淹沒。(細拉)

你使我眾叛親離,遭人唾棄。
我陷入困境,無路可逃。
我的眼睛因哭泣而視力模糊。
耶和華啊,我天天呼求你,
舉手向你呼求。
10 你要行神蹟給死人看嗎?
死人會起來讚美你嗎?(細拉)
11 墳墓裡的死人怎能宣揚你的慈愛呢?
滅亡的人怎能傳揚你的信實呢?
12 黑暗之地有誰知道你的神蹟呢?
在被遺忘之地有誰知道你的公義作為呢?
13 耶和華啊,我向你呼求,
我在清晨向你禱告。
14 耶和華啊,你為何棄絕我?
為何掩面不理我?
15 我從小受苦,幾乎喪命。
你使我驚恐不已,陷入絕望。
16 你的烈怒吞噬了我,
你可怕的攻擊毀滅了我。
17 這些災難如洪濤整天環繞我,
徹底圍住我。
18 你使我的親朋好友離我而去,
只有黑暗與我相伴。

The Message

Psalm 88

A Korah Prayer of Heman

11-9 God, you’re my last chance of the day.
    I spend the night on my knees before you.
Put me on your salvation agenda;
    take notes on the trouble I’m in.
I’ve had my fill of trouble;
    I’m camped on the edge of hell.
I’m written off as a lost cause,
    one more statistic, a hopeless case.
Abandoned as already dead,
    one more body in a stack of corpses,
And not so much as a gravestone—
    I’m a black hole in oblivion.
You’ve dropped me into a bottomless pit,
    sunk me in a pitch-black abyss.
I’m battered senseless by your rage,
    relentlessly pounded by your waves of anger.
You turned my friends against me,
    made me horrible to them.
I’m caught in a maze and can’t find my way out,
    blinded by tears of pain and frustration.

9-12 I call to you, God; all day I call.
    I wring my hands, I plead for help.
Are the dead a live audience for your miracles?
    Do ghosts ever join the choirs that praise you?
Does your love make any difference in a graveyard?
    Is your faithful presence noticed in the corridors of hell?
Are your marvelous wonders ever seen in the dark,
    your righteous ways noticed in the Land of No Memory?

13-18 I’m standing my ground, God, shouting for help,
    at my prayers every morning, on my knees each daybreak.
Why, God, do you turn a deaf ear?
    Why do you make yourself scarce?
For as long as I remember I’ve been hurting;
    I’ve taken the worst you can hand out, and I’ve had it.
Your wildfire anger has blazed through my life;
    I’m bleeding, black-and-blue.
You’ve attacked me fiercely from every side,
    raining down blows till I’m nearly dead.
You made lover and neighbor alike dump me;
    the only friend I have left is Darkness.
