詩篇 9

稱頌上帝的公義

大衛的詩,交給樂長,調用「慕拉辨」[a]

1耶和華啊,
我要全心全意地讚美你,
傳揚你一切奇妙的作為。
我要因你歡喜快樂,
至高者啊,我要歌頌你的名。
我的仇敵必在你面前敗退,
倒地身亡。
你坐在寶座上按公義審判,
你為我主持公道。
你斥責列國,消滅惡人,
永永遠遠抹去他們的名字。
仇敵永遠滅亡了,
你把他們的城池連根拔起,
無人再記得他們。
耶和華永遠掌權,
祂已設立施行審判的寶座。
祂要以公義審判世界,
在萬民中伸張正義。
耶和華是受欺壓之人的避難所,
是他們患難之時的避風港。
10 耶和華啊,
凡認識你名的人都必信靠你,
因為你從來不丟棄尋求你的人。
11 要歌頌住在錫安的耶和華,
在列邦傳揚祂的作為。
12 祂追討血債,顧念受害者,
不忘傾聽受苦者的呼求。
13 耶和華啊,
看看仇敵對我的迫害!
求你憐憫我,
救我離開死亡之門,
14 我好在錫安的城門口稱頌你,
因你的拯救而歡樂。
15 列邦挖了陷阱卻自陷其中,
設下網羅卻纏住自己的腳。
16 耶和華彰顯了自己的公義,
使惡人自食其果。(細拉)
17 惡人必下陰間,這是所有忘記上帝之人的結局。
18 貧乏人不會永遠被遺忘,
受苦人的希望也不會一直落空。
19 耶和華啊,求你起來,
別讓人向你誇勝,
願你審判列邦。
20 耶和華啊,
求你使列邦恐懼戰抖,
讓他們明白自己不過是人。(細拉)

The Message

Psalm 9

A David Psalm

11-2 I’m thanking you, God, from a full heart,
    I’m writing the book on your wonders.
I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy;
    I’m singing your song, High God.

3-4 The day my enemies turned tail and ran,
    they stumbled on you and fell on their faces.
You took over and set everything right;
    when I needed you, you were there, taking charge.

5-6 You blow the whistle on godless nations;
    you throw dirty players out of the game,
    wipe their names right off the roster.
Enemies disappear from the sidelines,
    their reputation trashed,
    their names erased from the halls of fame.

7-8 God holds the high center,
    he sees and sets the world’s mess right.
He decides what is right for us earthlings,
    gives people their just deserts.

9-10 God’s a safe-house for the battered,
    a sanctuary during bad times.
The moment you arrive, you relax;
    you’re never sorry you knocked.

11-12 Sing your songs to Zion-dwelling God,
    tell his stories to everyone you meet:
How he tracks down killers
    yet keeps his eye on us,
    registers every whimper and moan.

13-14 Be kind to me, God;
    I’ve been kicked around long enough.
Once you’ve pulled me back
    from the gates of death,
I’ll write the book on Hallelujahs;
    on the corner of Main and First
    I’ll hold a street meeting;
I’ll be the song leader; we’ll fill the air
    with salvation songs.

15-16 They’re trapped, those godless countries,
    in the very snares they set,
Their feet all tangled
    in the net they spread.
They have no excuse;
    the way God works is well-known.
The cunning machinery made by the wicked
    has maimed their own hands.

17-20 The wicked bought a one-way
    ticket to hell.
No longer will the poor be nameless—
    no more humiliation for the humble.
Up, God! Aren’t you fed up with their empty strutting?
    Expose these grand pretensions!
Shake them up, God!
    Show them how silly they look.
