The Message

Psalm 108

A David Prayer

11-2 I’m ready, God, so ready,
    ready from head to toe.
Ready to sing,
    ready to raise a God-song:
“Wake, soul! Wake, lute!
    Wake up, you sleepyhead sun!”

3-6 I’m thanking you, God, out in the streets,
    singing your praises in town and country.
The deeper your love, the higher it goes;
    every cloud’s a flag to your faithfulness.
Soar high in the skies, O God!
    Cover the whole earth with your glory!
And for the sake of the one you love so much,
    reach down and help me—answer me!

7-9 That’s when God spoke in holy splendor:
    “Brimming over with joy,
I make a present of Shechem,
    I hand out Succoth Valley as a gift.
Gilead’s in my pocket,
    to say nothing of Manasseh.
Ephraim’s my hard hat,
    Judah my hammer.
Moab’s a scrub bucket—
    I mop the floor with Moab,
Spit on Edom,
    rain fireworks all over Philistia.”

10-11 Who will take me to the thick of the fight?
    Who’ll show me the road to Edom?
You aren’t giving up on us, are you, God?
    refusing to go out with our troops?

12-13 Give us help for the hard task;
    human help is worthless.
In God we’ll do our very best;
    he’ll flatten the opposition for good.

詩篇 108

祈求上帝的幫助

大衛的詩歌。

1上帝啊!我的心堅定不移,
我要用心靈歌頌你。
琴瑟啊,彈奏吧,
我要喚醒黎明。
耶和華啊,我要在列邦稱謝你,
在列國歌頌你。
因為你的慈愛廣及諸天,
你的信實高達穹蒼。
上帝啊,
願你得到的尊崇超過諸天,
願你的榮耀覆蓋大地。
求你應允我們的禱告,
伸出右手幫助我們,
使你所愛的人獲救。
上帝在祂的聖所說:
「我要歡然劃分示劍,丈量疏割谷。
基列是我的,瑪拿西也是我的,
以法蓮是我的頭盔,
猶大是我的權杖。
摩押是我的洗腳盆,
我要把鞋扔給以東,
我要在非利士高唱凱歌。」
10 誰能帶我進入堅固的城池?
誰能領我到以東?
11 上帝啊,你拋棄了我們嗎?
上帝啊,你不再和我們的軍隊一同出戰了嗎?
12 求你幫助我們攻打仇敵,
因為人的幫助徒然無益。
13 我們依靠上帝才能取勝,
祂必把我們的敵人踩在腳下。
