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.

詩篇 123

祈求上帝憐憫

上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1在天上做王的耶和華啊!
我仰望你。
我們要仰望我們的上帝耶和華,
如同僕人仰望主人、婢女仰望主母,
一直到蒙祂憐憫。
耶和華啊,
求你憐憫我們,求你憐憫我們,
因為我們飽受鄙視。
我們飽受富足人的嘲弄、驕傲人的鄙視。
