Psalm 27

Psalm 27

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my light, and he saves me.
    Why should I fear anyone?
The Lord is my place of safety.
    Why should I be afraid?
My enemies are evil.
    They will trip and fall
when they attack me
    and try to swallow me up.
Even if an army attacks me,
    my heart will not be afraid.
Even if war breaks out against me,
    I will still trust in God.

I’m asking the Lord for only one thing.
    Here is what I want.
I want to live in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life.
I want to look at the beauty of the Lord.
    I want to worship him in his temple.
When I’m in trouble,
    he will keep me safe in his house.
He will hide me in the safety of his holy tent.
    He will put me on a rock that is very high.
Then I will win the battle
    over my enemies who are all around me.
At his holy tent I will offer my sacrifice with shouts of joy.
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Lord, hear my voice when I call out to you.
    Treat me with kindness and answer me.
My heart says, “Seek him!”
    Lord, I will seek you.
Don’t turn your face away from me.
    Don’t turn me away because you are angry.
    You have helped me.
God my Savior, don’t say no to me.
    Don’t desert me.
10 My father and mother may desert me,
    but the Lord will accept me.
11 Lord, teach me your ways.
    Lead me along a straight path.
    There are many people who treat me badly.
12 My enemies want to harm me. So don’t turn me over to them.
    Witnesses who tell lies are rising up against me.
    They say all sorts of evil things about me.

13 Here is something I am still sure of.
    I will see the Lord’s goodness
    while I’m still alive.
14 Wait for the Lord.
    Be strong and don’t lose hope.
    Wait for the Lord.

詩篇 27

讚美的禱告

大衛的詩。

1耶和華是我的光,我的拯救,
我還怕誰?
耶和華是我的堡壘,
我還怕誰?
當惡人來吞吃我,
仇敵來攻擊我時,
必失足跌倒。
雖然大軍圍攻我,
我心中卻一無所懼;
雖然戰爭來臨,我仍滿懷信心。
我曾向耶和華求一件事,
我還要求,就是能一生住在祂的殿中,
瞻仰祂的榮美,尋求祂的旨意。
危難之時,祂保護我,
把我藏在祂的聖幕裡,
高高地安置在磐石上。
我要昂首面對四圍的敵人,
我要在祂的聖幕裡歡呼獻祭,
歌頌讚美祂。

耶和華啊,求你垂聽我的呼求,
求你恩待我,應允我。
你說:「來尋求我!」
我心中回應:
「耶和華啊,我要尋求你。」
別掩面不理我,
別憤然拒絕你的僕人,
你一向是我的幫助。
拯救我的上帝啊,
別離開我,別撇棄我。
10 縱使父母離棄我,
耶和華也必收留我。
11 耶和華啊,
求你指教我行你的道,
引導我走正路,遠離仇敵。
12 求你不要讓仇敵抓到我,
遂其所願,
因為他們誣告我,恐嚇我。

13 我深信今世必能看見耶和華的美善。
14 要等候耶和華,
要堅定不移地等候耶和華。
