Psalm 7

Psalm 7

A shiggaion of David. He sang it to the Lord about Cush, who was from the tribe of Benjamin.

Lord my God, I go to you for safety.
    Help me. Save me from all those who are chasing me.
If you don’t, they will tear me apart as if they were lions.
    They will rip me to pieces so that no one can save me.

Lord my God, suppose I have done something wrong.
    Suppose I am guilty.
Or I have done evil to my friend.
    Or I have robbed my enemy without any reason.
Then let my enemy chase me and catch me.
    Let him stomp me into the ground.
    Let him bury me in the dust.

Lord, rise up in your anger.
    Rise up against the great anger of my enemies.
    My God, wake up. Command that the right thing be done.
Let all the people of the earth gather around you.
    Rule over them from your throne in heaven.
    Lord, judge all people.
Lord, show that I have done what is right.
    Most High God, remember that I am honest.
God, you always do what is right.
    You look deep down inside the hearts and minds of people.
Bring to an end the terrible things sinful people do.
    Make godly people safe.

10 The Most High God is like a shield that keeps me safe.
    He saves those whose hearts are honest.
11 God judges fairly.
    He shows his anger every day.
12 If evil people don’t change their ways,
    God will sharpen his sword.
    He will get his bow ready to use.
13 He has prepared his deadly weapons.
    He has made his flaming arrows ready.

14 Whoever is full of evil
    plans trouble and ends up telling lies.
15 Whoever digs a hole and shovels it out
    falls into the pit they have made.
16 The trouble they cause comes back on them.
    The terrible things they do will happen to them.

17 I will give thanks to the Lord because he does what is right.
    I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.

诗篇 7

求上帝伸张正义

大卫向耶和华唱的诗,与便雅悯人古实有关。

1我的上帝耶和华啊,我投靠你,
求你拯救我脱离追赶我的人。
别让他们像狮子般撕裂我,
无人搭救。
我的上帝耶和华啊,
倘若我犯了罪,
手上沾了不义;
倘若我恩将仇报,
无故抢夺仇敌,
就让仇敌追上我,
践踏我,使我声名扫地。(细拉)

耶和华啊,
求你发怒攻击我暴怒的仇敌。
我的上帝啊,
求你来伸张正义。
愿万民环绕你,
愿你从高天治理他们,
愿你审判万民!
至高的耶和华啊,
我是公义正直的,
求你为我主持公道。
鉴察人心肺腑的公义上帝啊,
求你铲除邪恶,扶持义人。
10 上帝是我的盾牌,
祂拯救心地正直的人。
11 上帝是公义的审判官,
天天向恶人发怒。
12 他们若不悔改,祂必磨刀霍霍,
弯弓搭箭,诛灭他们。
13 祂准备好了夺命的兵器,
火箭已在弦上。
14 恶人心怀恶念,
居心叵测,滋生虚谎。
15 他们挖了陷阱,却自陷其中。
16 他们的恶行临到自己头上,
他们的暴力落到自己脑壳上。
17 我要称谢耶和华的公义,
我要歌颂至高者耶和华的名。
