The Message

Psalm 130

A Pilgrim Song

11-2 Help, God—the bottom has fallen out of my life!
    Master, hear my cry for help!
Listen hard! Open your ears!
    Listen to my cries for mercy.

3-4 If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
    who would stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
    and that’s why you’re worshiped.

5-6 I pray to God—my life a prayer—
    and wait for what he’ll say and do.
My life’s on the line before God, my Lord,
    waiting and watching till morning,
    waiting and watching till morning.

7-8 O Israel, wait and watch for God
    with God’s arrival comes love,
    with God’s arrival comes generous redemption.
No doubt about it—he’ll redeem Israel,
    buy back Israel from captivity to sin.

詩篇 130

患難中求助的禱告

上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1耶和華啊!
我在絕望的深淵中向你呼求。
主啊,求你垂聽我的呼求,
側耳聽我的祈求。
主耶和華啊,
倘若你追究我們的罪過,
誰能站得住呢?
然而,你赦免我們,
所以你當受敬畏。

我等候耶和華,一心等候祂,
祂的話語是我的盼望。
我一心等候耶和華,
比守夜的盼望天明還要迫切,
比守夜的盼望天明還要迫切。
以色列啊,要信靠耶和華,
因為祂有慈愛,能完全救贖我們。
祂必把以色列從罪惡中救贖出來。
