시편 120

도움을 구하는 기도

(성전에 올라가는 노래)

1내가 환난 가운데서
여호와께 부르짖었더니
그가 나에게 응답하셨다.

여호와여, 거짓말하고
속이는 자들에게서
나를 구하소서.

거짓말하는 자들아,
하나님이 너희를 어떻게 하며
너희에게 무슨 벌을
내리실 것 같으냐?
그가 날카로운 화살과
벌겋게 타는 숯불로
너희를 벌하시리라.
내가 메섹에 머물며
게달 사람 가운데 살고 있으니
나에게 화가 미쳤구나.

내가 평화를 싫어하는 사람들과
너무 오랫동안 살았다.
내가 그들과
평화롭게 지내고자 하나
그들은 오히려 싸우려 드는구나.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 120

Prayer for Breaking Away from the Treacherous.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

1In my trouble I cried to the Lord,
And He answered me.

Rescue my soul, O Lord, from lying lips,
And from a deceitful tongue.

What shall be given to you, and what more shall be done to you,
You deceitful tongue?—

Sharp arrows of the warrior,
With the [b]burning coals of the broom tree.


Woe to me, for I sojourn in Meshech,
and I live among the tents of Kedar [among hostile people]!

Too long my soul has had its dwelling
With those who hate peace.

I am for peace, but when I speak,
They are for war.

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 120:1 It is possible that the fifteen psalms (chs 120-134) known as the “Songs of Degrees or Ascents” were sung by the caravans of pilgrims going up to attend the annual feasts at Jerusalem. But it is equally possible that the title has reference to some peculiarity in connection with the music or the manner of using it.
  2. Psalm 120:4 The ancient rabbis explained that coals from a broom tree are unusual in that they continue burning on the inside even after they are extinguished on the outside. They compared this to a person who listens to slander: even if you try to persuade him otherwise and he seems to be convinced, he is still “burning” on the inside, i.e. still unconvinced.
