King James Version

Psalm 109

1Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;

For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.

For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.

And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.

When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.

Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.

11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.

12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.

13 Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the Lord; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.

15 Let them be before the Lord continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

16 Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.

17 As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

18 As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.

19 Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.

20 Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the Lord, and of them that speak evil against my soul.

21 But do thou for me, O God the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.

22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.

23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.

24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.

25 I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.

26 Help me, O Lord my God: O save me according to thy mercy:

27 That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, Lord, hast done it.

28 Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.

29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.

30 I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.

31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.

诗篇 109

患难中的苦诉

大卫的诗歌,交给乐长。

1我所赞美的上帝啊,
求你不要沉默不语。
因为邪恶和诡诈的人开口攻击我,
用谎言毁谤我。
他们恶言恶语地围着我,
无缘无故地攻击我。
我爱他们,他们却控告我,
但我为他们祷告。
他们对我以恶报善,
以恨报爱。
求你差恶人攻击我的仇敌,
派人站在他右边控告他。
当他受审时,
愿他被判为有罪,
他的祷告也算为罪过。
愿他的年日短少,
愿别人取代他的职位。
愿他的孩子失去父亲,
妻子成为寡妇。
10 愿他的孩子流浪行乞,
被赶出自己破败的家。
11 愿债主夺取他所有的财产,
陌生人抢走他的劳动成果。
12 愿无人向他施恩,
无人同情他的孤儿。
13 愿他断子绝孙,
他的姓氏传不到下一代。
14 愿耶和华记住他祖辈的罪恶,
不除去他母亲的罪过。
15 愿耶和华永不忘记他的罪恶,
把他从世上铲除。
16 因为他毫无仁慈,
迫害困苦、贫穷和伤心的人,
置他们于死地。
17 他喜欢咒诅人,
愿咒诅临到他;
他不喜欢祝福人,
愿祝福远离他。
18 他咒诅成性,
愿咒诅如水侵入他的身体,
如油浸透他的骨头。
19 愿咒诅不离其身,
如同身上的衣服和腰间的带子。
20 愿耶和华这样报应那些诬告我,
以恶言攻击我的人。
21 主耶和华啊,
求你因自己的名恩待我,
因你的美善和慈爱拯救我。
22 因为我贫穷困苦,
内心饱受创伤。
23 我像黄昏的日影一样消逝,
如蝗虫一般被抖落。
24 禁食使我双腿发软,
瘦骨嶙峋。
25 仇敌都嘲笑我,
他们看见我就连连摇头。
26 我的上帝耶和华啊,
求你帮助我,施慈爱拯救我,
27 让他们都看见这是你耶和华的作为。
28 任凭他们咒诅吧,
你必赐福给我。
攻击我的人必蒙羞,
你的仆人必欢喜。
29 愿诬告我的人满面羞辱,
无地自容。
30 我要竭力颂扬耶和华,
在众人面前赞美祂。
31 因为祂保护贫穷的人,
拯救他们脱离置他们于死地的人。
