King James Version

Psalm 55

1Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.

Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;

Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.

My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.

And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.

Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.

I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.

10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.

11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.

12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:

13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.

14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.

15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.

16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me.

17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.

19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.

20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.

21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

詩篇 55

被朋友出賣者的禱告

大衛作的訓誨詩,交給樂長,用弦樂器。

1上帝啊,
求你垂聽我的禱告,
不要對我的呼求置之不理。
求你垂聽、應允我的呼求。
我思緒煩亂,坐立不安。
仇敵向我咆哮,
惡人迫害我。
他們帶給我苦難,
怒氣沖沖地辱罵我。
我內心悲痛,
被死亡的恐怖籠罩。
我渾身顫慄,驚恐不已。
啊,但願我能像鴿子展翅飛去,
得享安息。
我要飛到遠方,住在曠野。(細拉)
我要趕快躲進避難所,
避過暴雨狂風。

主啊,
我在城中看見暴力和爭鬥,
求你使他們言語混亂。
10 他們晝夜在城牆上出沒,
城內充滿了邪惡和壓迫,
11 毀壞的勢力到處肆虐,
恐嚇與欺詐遍佈大街小巷。
12 倘若是仇敵辱罵我,
我還能忍受;
倘若是恨我的人欺凌我,
我還可以躲開。
13 可是,竟然是你——我志同道合的夥伴,我的摯友!
14 從前我們情誼深厚,
與眾人同去上帝的殿。
15 願死亡突然抓住我的仇敵,
願他們活活地下陰間,
因為他們的內心和家中罪惡充斥。
16 但我要呼求耶和華上帝,
祂必拯救我。
17 晚上、早晨和中午,
我發出痛苦的呼求,
祂必垂聽。
18 雖然許多人攻擊我,
祂必救我平安脫離險境。
19 永掌王權的上帝必鑒察並懲罰他們,
因為他們頑梗悖逆、不敬畏上帝。

20 我的同伴違背盟約,攻擊朋友。
21 他口蜜腹劍,笑裡藏刀。
22 把你的重擔卸給耶和華,
祂必扶持你。
祂必不讓義人跌倒。

23 上帝啊,
你必把惡人送進滅亡的坑裡。
嗜血成性的騙子必早早夭亡。
但我要信靠你。
