New International Reader's Version

Psalm 123

Psalm 123

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

I look up and pray to you.
    Your throne is in heaven.
Slaves depend on their masters.
    A female slave depends on the woman she works for.
In the same way, we depend on the Lord our God.
    We wait for him to have mercy on us.

Lord, have mercy on us. Have mercy on us,
    because people haven’t stopped making fun of us.
We have had to put up with a lot from those who are proud.
    They were always laughing at us.

诗篇 123

祈求上帝怜悯

上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1在天上做王的耶和华啊!
我仰望你。
我们要仰望我们的上帝耶和华,
如同仆人仰望主人、婢女仰望主母,
一直到蒙祂怜悯。
耶和华啊,
求你怜悯我们,求你怜悯我们,
因为我们饱受鄙视。
我们饱受富足人的嘲弄、骄傲人的鄙视。
