King James Version

Psalm 143

1Hear my prayer, O Lord, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.

And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.

For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.

Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.

I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.

I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.

Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.

Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.

10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

11 Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.

12 And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.

詩篇 143

求上帝拯救

大衛的詩。

1耶和華啊,求你垂聽我的禱告,
傾聽我的呼求,
求你憑你的信實和公義應允我的祈求。
求你不要審判你的僕人,
因為在你眼中沒有一個義人。
敵人迫害我,打垮我,
使我生活在黑暗中,
像死去很久的人。
我心力交瘁,驚恐萬分。
我想起遙遠的過去,
我思想你的一切作為,
回想你所做的事。
我舉手向你呼求,
我的心渴慕你如同乾旱之地渴慕甘霖。(細拉)

耶和華啊,求你快快應允我!
我已絕望,求你不要掩面不顧我,
不然我必和下墳墓的人無異。
求你讓我在清晨就聽見你的慈言愛語,
因為我信靠你;
求你指示我當走的路,
因為我的心仰望你。
耶和華啊,求你救我脫離仇敵,
我要到你那裡尋求庇護。
10 求你教導我遵行你的旨意,
因為你是我的上帝,
願你良善的靈引導我走平坦的路。
11 耶和華啊,
求你為自己名的緣故拯救我,
憑你的公義救我脫離患難。
12 求你剷除我的仇敵,
因為你愛我。
求你消滅一切迫害我的人,
因為我是你的僕人。
