Psalm 57

Prayer for Rescue from Persecutors.

For the choir director; set to [a]Al-tashheth. A [b]Mikhtam of David, [c]when he fled from Saul in the cave.

1Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me,
For my soul takes refuge in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge
Until destruction passes by.
I will cry to God Most High,
To God who accomplishes all things for me.
He will send from heaven and save me;
He reproaches him who [d]tramples upon me. [e]Selah.
God will send forth His lovingkindness and His [f]truth.

My soul is among lions;
I must lie among those who breathe forth fire,
Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows
And their tongue a sharp sword.
Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory be above all the earth.
They have [g]prepared a net for my steps;
My soul is bowed down;
They dug a pit before me;
They themselves have fallen into the midst of it. Selah.

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!
Awake, my glory!
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.
I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to You among the [h]nations.
10 For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens
And Your [i]truth to the clouds.
11 Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory be above all the earth.

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。
