The Message

Psalm 6

A David Psalm

11-2 Please, God, no more yelling,
    no more trips to the woodshed.
Treat me nice for a change;
    I’m so starved for affection.

2-3 Can’t you see I’m black-and-blue,
    beat up badly in bones and soul?
God, how long will it take
    for you to let up?

4-5 Break in, God, and break up this fight;
    if you love me at all, get me out of here.
I’m no good to you dead, am I?
    I can’t sing in your choir if I’m buried in some tomb!

6-7 I’m tired of all this—so tired. My bed
    has been floating forty days and nights
On the flood of my tears.
    My mattress is soaked, soggy with tears.
The sockets of my eyes are black holes;
    nearly blind, I squint and grope.

8-9 Get out of here, you Devil’s crew:
    at last God has heard my sobs.
My requests have all been granted,
    my prayers are answered.

10 Cowards, my enemies disappear.
Disgraced, they turn tail and run.

诗篇 6

患难中祈求怜悯

大卫的诗,交给乐长,弦乐器伴奏。

1耶和华啊,
求你不要在怒中责备我,
不要在烈怒中惩罚我。
耶和华啊,求你怜悯,
因为我软弱无力。
耶和华啊,求你医治,
因为我痛彻入骨。
我心中忧伤,
耶和华啊,
你要我忧伤到何时呢?
耶和华啊,求你回来救我,
因你的慈爱而拯救我。
因为死去的人不会记得你,
谁会在阴间赞美你呢?
我因哀叹心力交瘁,
夜夜哭泣,泪漂床榻,
湿透被褥。
我的眼睛因忧愁而模糊,
因敌人的攻击而昏花。
你们所有作恶的人,快走开!
因为耶和华已经听见我的哭声。
耶和华听见了我的恳求,
祂必答应我的祷告。
10 我所有的仇敌都必羞愧,
惊恐不已;
他们必忽然蒙羞,
掉头逃窜。
