King James Version

Psalm 102

1Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee.

Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.

For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.

My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.

By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.

I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.

I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.

For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping.

10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.

11 My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.

12 But thou, O Lord, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.

15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

16 When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.

19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth;

20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;

21 To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;

22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.

23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.

24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations.

25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:

27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.

詩篇 102

患難中的祈禱

受苦之人的禱告,在疲憊不堪時向耶和華的傾訴。

1耶和華啊,求你聽我的禱告,
垂聽我的呼求!
我在危難的時候,
求你不要掩面不理我。
求你垂聽我的呼求,
趕快應允我。
我的年日如煙消散,
我全身如火焚燒。
我的心被摧殘,如草枯萎,
以致我不思飲食。
我因哀歎而瘦骨嶙峋。
我就像曠野中的鴞鳥,
又像廢墟中的貓頭鷹。
我無法入睡,
我就像屋頂上一隻孤伶伶的麻雀。
我的仇敵終日辱罵我,
嘲笑我的用我的名字咒詛人。
我以爐灰為食物,
眼淚拌著水喝,
10 因為你向我大發烈怒,
把我抓起來丟在一邊。
11 我的生命就像黃昏的影子,
又如枯乾的草芥。

12 耶和華啊!唯有你永遠做王,
你的大名萬代長存。
13 你必憐憫錫安,
因為現在是你恩待她的時候了,時候到了。
14 你的僕人們喜愛城中的石頭,
憐惜城中的塵土。
15 列國敬畏耶和華的名,
世上的君王都因祂的榮耀而戰抖。
16 因為耶和華必重建錫安,
帶著榮耀顯現。
17 祂必垂聽窮人的禱告,
不藐視他們的祈求。

18 要為後代記下這一切,
好讓將來的人讚美耶和華。
19 耶和華從至高的聖所俯視人間,
從天上察看大地,
20 要垂聽被囚之人的哀歎,
釋放被判死刑的人。
21-22 這樣,萬族萬國聚集、敬拜
耶和華時,
人們必在錫安傳揚祂的名,
在耶路撒冷讚美祂。

23 祂使我未老先衰,
縮短了我的歲月。
24 我說:「我的上帝啊,
你世代長存,
求你不要叫我中年早逝。
25 太初你奠立大地的根基,
親手創造諸天。
26 天地都要消亡,
但你永遠長存。
天地都會像外衣漸漸破舊,
你必更換天地,如同更換衣服,
天地都要消逝。
27 但你永遠不變,
你的年日永無窮盡。
28 你僕人的後代必生生不息,
在你面前安然居住。」
