The Message

Psalm 123

A Pilgrim Song

11-4 I look to you, heaven-dwelling God,
    look up to you for help.
Like servants, alert to their master’s commands,
    like a maiden attending her lady,
We’re watching and waiting, holding our breath,
    awaiting your word of mercy.
Mercy, God, mercy!
    We’ve been kicked around long enough,
Kicked in the teeth by complacent rich men,
    kicked when we’re down by arrogant brutes.

詩篇 123

祈求上帝憐憫

上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1在天上做王的耶和華啊!
我仰望你。
我們要仰望我們的上帝耶和華,
如同僕人仰望主人、婢女仰望主母,
一直到蒙祂憐憫。
耶和華啊,
求你憐憫我們,求你憐憫我們,
因為我們飽受鄙視。
我們飽受富足人的嘲弄、驕傲人的鄙視。
