New International Version

Psalm 10

Psalm 10[a]

Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
    Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
    who are caught in the schemes he devises.
He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
    he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
    in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
His ways are always prosperous;
    your laws are rejected by[b] him;
    he sneers at all his enemies.
He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.”
    He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.”

His mouth is full of lies and threats;
    trouble and evil are under his tongue.
He lies in wait near the villages;
    from ambush he murders the innocent.
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
    like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
    he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
10 His victims are crushed, they collapse;
    they fall under his strength.
11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;
    he covers his face and never sees.”

12 Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
    Do not forget the helpless.
13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
    Why does he say to himself,
    “He won’t call me to account”?
14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
    you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
    you are the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break the arm of the wicked man;
    call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
    that would not otherwise be found out.

16 The Lord is King for ever and ever;
    the nations will perish from his land.
17 You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18 defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror.

詩篇 10

求上帝懲治惡人

1耶和華啊,你為何遠遠站著?
為何在我遭難時隱藏起來?
惡人狂妄地追逼窮苦人,
願他們落入自己所設的圈套。
惡人誇耀自己的貪慾,
貪婪的人憎恨、咒詛耶和華。
他們狂傲自大,心中沒有上帝,
從不尋求耶和華。
他們凡事順利,
對你的審判不屑一顧,
對所有的仇敵嗤之以鼻。
他們自以為可以屹立不倒,
世世代代永不遭殃。
他們滿口咒詛、謊話和恐嚇之言,
舌頭沾滿禍害和邪惡。
他們埋伏在村莊,
暗中監視受害者,殺害無辜。
他們像獅子埋伏在暗處,
獵取無助的人,
用網羅拖走他們。
10 不幸的人被擊垮,
倒在他們的暴力下。
11 他們自言自語:「上帝忘記了,
祂掩面不理這些事!」
12 耶和華啊,求你起來!
上帝啊,求你舉手施罰,
不要忘記無助的人!
13 惡人為何輕視上帝,
以為上帝不會追究呢?
14 但你已看到世人的疾苦,
隨時伸出援手。
困苦無助的人投靠你,
你是孤兒的幫助。
15 求你打斷惡人的臂膀,
徹底追究他們的罪惡。
16 耶和華永永遠遠是君王,
列邦必從祂的土地上滅亡。
17 耶和華啊,
你知道困苦人的願望,
你必垂聽他們的呼求,
安慰他們。
18 你為孤兒和受欺壓的人伸冤,
使渺小的世人不能再恐嚇他們。
