New International Reader's Version

Psalm 9

Psalm 9

For the director of music. A psalm of David to the tune of “The Death of the Son.”

Lord, I will give thanks to you with all my heart.
    I will tell about all the wonderful things you have done.
I will be glad and full of joy because of you.
    Most High God, I will sing the praises of your name.

My enemies turn back.
    They fall down and die right in front of you.
You have proved that I haven’t done anything wrong.
    You have sat on your throne and judged fairly.
You have punished the nations. You have destroyed evil people.
    You have erased their names from your book for ever and ever.
My enemies have been destroyed forever.
    You have leveled their cities to the ground.
    Even the memory of them is gone.

The Lord rules forever.
    He has set up his throne so that he can judge people.
He rules the world in keeping with what is right.
    He judges all its people fairly.
The Lord is a place of safety for those who have been treated badly.
    He keeps them safe in times of trouble.
10 Lord, those who know you will trust in you.
    You have never deserted those who look to you.

11 Sing the praises of the Lord. He rules from his throne in Zion.
    Tell among the nations what he has done.
12 The God who pays back murderers remembers.
    He doesn’t forget the cries of those who are hurting.

13 Lord, see how badly my enemies treat me!
    Help me! Don’t let me go down to the gates of death!
14 Then I can give praise to you
    at the gates of the city of Zion.
There I will be full of joy
    because you have saved me.
15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug.
    Their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.
16 The Lord is known to be fair by the things he does.
    Evil people are trapped by what they have done.
17 Sinful people go down to the place of the dead.
    So do all the nations that forget God.
18 But God will never forget needy people.
    The hope of those who are hurting will never die.

19 Lord, rise up. Don’t let people win the battle.
    Let the nations come to you and be judged.
20 Lord, strike them with terror.
Let the nations know they are only human beings.

诗篇 9

称颂上帝的公义

大卫的诗,交给乐长,调用“慕拉辨”[a]

1耶和华啊,
我要全心全意地赞美你,
传扬你一切奇妙的作为。
我要因你欢喜快乐,
至高者啊,我要歌颂你的名。
我的仇敌必在你面前败退,
倒地身亡。
你坐在宝座上按公义审判,
你为我主持公道。
你斥责列国,消灭恶人,
永永远远抹去他们的名字。
仇敌永远灭亡了,
你把他们的城池连根拔起,
无人再记得他们。
耶和华永远掌权,
祂已设立施行审判的宝座。
祂要以公义审判世界,
在万民中伸张正义。
耶和华是受欺压之人的避难所,
是他们患难之时的避风港。
10 耶和华啊,
凡认识你名的人都必信靠你,
因为你从来不丢弃寻求你的人。
11 要歌颂住在锡安的耶和华,
在列邦传扬祂的作为。
12 祂追讨血债,顾念受害者,
不忘倾听受苦者的呼求。
13 耶和华啊,
看看仇敌对我的迫害!
求你怜悯我,
救我离开死亡之门,
14 我好在锡安的城门口称颂你,
因你的拯救而欢乐。
15 列邦挖了陷阱却自陷其中,
设下网罗却缠住自己的脚。
16 耶和华彰显了自己的公义,
使恶人自食其果。(细拉)
17 恶人必下阴间,这是所有忘记上帝之人的结局。
18 贫乏人不会永远被遗忘,
受苦人的希望也不会一直落空。
19 耶和华啊,求你起来,
别让人向你夸胜,
愿你审判列邦。
20 耶和华啊,
求你使列邦恐惧战抖,
让他们明白自己不过是人。(细拉)
