The Message

Psalm 57

A David Psalm, When He Hid in a Cave from Saul

11-3 Be good to me, God—and now!
    I’ve run to you for dear life.
I’m hiding out under your wings
    until the hurricane blows over.
I call out to High God,
    the God who holds me together.
He sends orders from heaven and saves me,
    he humiliates those who kick me around.
God delivers generous love,
    he makes good on his word.

I find myself in a pride of lions
    who are wild for a taste of human flesh;
Their teeth are lances and arrows,
    their tongues are sharp daggers.

Soar high in the skies, O God!
    Cover the whole earth with your glory!

They booby-trapped my path;
    I thought I was dead and done for.
They dug a mantrap to catch me,
    and fell in headlong themselves.

7-8 I’m ready, God, so ready,
    ready from head to toe,
Ready to sing, ready to raise a tune:
    “Wake up, soul!
Wake up, harp! wake up, lute!
    Wake up, you sleepyhead sun!”

9-10 I’m thanking you, God, out loud in the streets,
    singing your praises in town and country.
The deeper your love, the higher it goes;
    every cloud is a flag to your faithfulness.

11 Soar high in the skies, O God!
    Cover the whole earth with your glory!

诗篇 57

被围困中的呼求

大卫作的诗,交给乐长,调用“休要毁坏”。当时他因逃避扫罗躲进了洞里。

1上帝啊,求你怜悯我,怜悯我,
因为我投靠你。
我要在你翅膀下得到荫庇,
直到灾难结束。
我向至高的上帝,
向为我成就一切的上帝呼求。
上帝从天上施助、拯救我,
使迫害我的人蒙羞。
上帝必彰显祂的慈爱和信实。
我被狮子包围,
躺卧在吃人的野兽中。
他们的牙齿是矛和箭,
舌头是尖刀。
上帝啊,
愿人对你的尊崇超过诸天,
愿你的荣耀覆盖大地。
我的仇敌设下网罗,
我心中沮丧。
他们在我走的路上挖了陷阱,
自己却掉了进去。(细拉)

上帝啊,我心坚定,我心坚定,
我要唱诗赞美你。
我的心啊,要振奋起来!
琴瑟啊,弹奏吧!
我要唤醒黎明!
主啊,我要在列邦称谢你,
在列国歌颂你。
10 因为你的慈爱高达诸天,
你的信实广及穹苍。
11 上帝啊,
愿你得到的尊崇超过诸天,
愿你的荣耀覆盖大地。
