New International Reader's Version

Psalm 13

Psalm 13

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Lord, how long must I wait? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you turn your face away from me?
How long must I struggle with my thoughts?
    How long must my heart be sad day after day?
    How long will my enemies keep winning the battle over me?

Lord my God, look at me and answer me.
    Give me new life, or I will die.
Then my enemies will say, “We have beaten him.”
    They will be filled with joy when I die.

But I trust in your faithful love.
    My heart is filled with joy because you will save me.
I will sing praise to the Lord.
    He has been so good to me.

诗篇 13

祈求上帝垂顾

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1耶和华啊,你忘记我要到何时呢?要到永远吗?
你转脸不顾我要到何时呢?
我思绪烦乱,日夜忧伤要到何时呢?
我的仇敌占尽上风要到何时呢?
我的上帝耶和华啊,
求你垂顾我,回答我,
使我眼睛明亮,
免得我在沉睡中死去,
免得我的仇敌说:“我们战胜了他!”
免得他们因我败落而欢喜。
我深信你的慈爱,
我的心要因你的拯救而欢欣。
耶和华一直恩待我,
我要向祂歌唱。
