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.

詩篇 7

求上帝伸張正義

大衛向耶和華唱的詩,與便雅憫人古實有關。

1我的上帝耶和華啊,我投靠你,
求你拯救我脫離追趕我的人。
別讓他們像獅子般撕裂我,
無人搭救。
我的上帝耶和華啊,
倘若我犯了罪,
手上沾了不義;
倘若我恩將仇報,
無故搶奪仇敵,
就讓仇敵追上我,
踐踏我,使我聲名掃地。(細拉)

耶和華啊,
求你發怒攻擊我暴怒的仇敵。
我的上帝啊,
求你來伸張正義。
願萬民環繞你,
願你從高天治理他們,
願你審判萬民!
至高的耶和華啊,
我是公義正直的,
求你為我主持公道。
鑒察人心肺腑的公義上帝啊,
求你剷除邪惡,扶持義人。
10 上帝是我的盾牌,
祂拯救心地正直的人。
11 上帝是公義的審判官,
天天向惡人發怒。
12 他們若不悔改,祂必磨刀霍霍,
彎弓搭箭,誅滅他們。
13 祂準備好了奪命的兵器,
火箭已在弦上。
14 惡人心懷惡念,
居心叵測,滋生虛謊。
15 他們挖了陷阱,卻自陷其中。
16 他們的惡行臨到自己頭上,
他們的暴力落到自己腦殼上。
17 我要稱謝耶和華的公義,
我要歌頌至高者耶和華的名。
