Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 94

上帝是審判者

1耶和華啊,你是伸冤的上帝;
伸冤的上帝啊,
求你彰顯你的榮光。
審判世界的主啊,
求你起來使驕傲人受到應得的報應。
耶和華啊,
惡人洋洋得意,要到何時呢?
要到何時呢?
他們大放厥詞,狂妄自大。
耶和華啊,他們壓迫你的子民,
苦害你的產業。
他們謀害寡婦、外族人和孤兒,
並說:「耶和華看不見,
雅各的上帝不會知道。」

愚昧的人啊,你們要思想;
無知的人啊,你們何時才能明白呢?
難道創造耳朵的上帝聽不見嗎?
難道創造眼睛的上帝看不見嗎?
10 管教列國的上帝難道不懲罰你們嗎?
賜知識的上帝難道不知道嗎?
11 耶和華洞悉人的思想,
祂知道人的思想虛妄,

12 耶和華啊,蒙你管教並用律法訓誨的人有福了!
13 你使他們在患難中有平安,
惡人終必滅亡。
14 耶和華不會丟棄祂的子民,
也不會遺棄祂的產業。
15 公正的審判必重現,
心地正直的人都必擁護。

16 誰肯為我奮起攻擊惡人?
誰肯為我起來抵擋作惡的人?
17 耶和華若不幫助我,
我早已歸入死亡的沉寂中了。
18 我說:「我要倒下了!」
耶和華啊,你便以慈愛扶助我。
19 當我憂心忡忡的時候,
你的撫慰帶給我歡樂。

20 藉律例製造不幸的首領,
豈能與你聯盟?
21 他們結黨攻擊義人,
殘害無辜。
22 但耶和華是我的堡壘,
我的上帝是保護我的磐石。
23 祂必使惡人自食惡果,
因他們的罪惡而毀滅他們。
我們的上帝耶和華必毀滅他們。

The Message

Psalm 94

11-2 God, put an end to evil;
    avenging God, show your colors!
Judge of the earth, take your stand;
    throw the book at the arrogant.

3-4 God, the wicked get away with murder—
    how long will you let this go on?
They brag and boast
    and crow about their crimes!

5-7 They walk all over your people, God,
    exploit and abuse your precious people.
They take out anyone who gets in their way;
    if they can’t use them, they kill them.
They think, “God isn’t looking,
    Jacob’s God is out to lunch.”

8-11 Well, think again, you idiots,
    fools—how long before you get smart?
Do you think Ear-Maker doesn’t hear,
    Eye-Shaper doesn’t see?
Do you think the trainer of nations doesn’t correct,
    the teacher of Adam doesn’t know?
God knows, all right—
    knows your stupidity,
    sees your shallowness.

12-15 How blessed the man you train, God,
    the woman you instruct in your Word,
Providing a circle of quiet within the clamor of evil,
    while a jail is being built for the wicked.
God will never walk away from his people,
    never desert his precious people.
Rest assured that justice is on its way
    and every good heart put right.

16-19 Who stood up for me against the wicked?
    Who took my side against evil workers?
If God hadn’t been there for me,
    I never would have made it.
The minute I said, “I’m slipping, I’m falling,”
    your love, God, took hold and held me fast.
When I was upset and beside myself,
    you calmed me down and cheered me up.

20-23 Can Misrule have anything in common with you?
    Can Troublemaker pretend to be on your side?
They ganged up on good people,
    plotted behind the backs of the innocent.
But God became my hideout,
    God was my high mountain retreat,
Then boomeranged their evil back on them:
    for their evil ways he wiped them out,
    our God cleaned them out for good.
