New International Version

Psalm 129

Psalm 129

A song of ascents.

“They have greatly oppressed me from my youth,”
    let Israel say;
“they have greatly oppressed me from my youth,
    but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back
    and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous;
    he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”

May all who hate Zion
    be turned back in shame.
May they be like grass on the roof,
    which withers before it can grow;
a reaper cannot fill his hands with it,
    nor one who gathers fill his arms.
May those who pass by not say to them,
    “The blessing of the Lord be on you;
    we bless you in the name of the Lord.”

詩篇 129

求上帝擊退仇敵

上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1以色列要說:
我從小就深受仇敵的迫害,
我從小就深受仇敵的迫害,
但他們沒能勝過我。
他們鞭打我的背,
傷痕如同農夫耕出的長長犁溝。
耶和華是公義的,
祂砍斷了惡人捆綁我的繩索。
願所有憎惡錫安的人狼狽而逃。
願他們像房頂的草,
沒長起來就已枯萎,
割下來不滿一把,
紮起來不足一捆。
沒有一個路過的人說:
「願耶和華賜福給你們!
我們奉耶和華的名祝福你們。」
