Psalm 31

Psalm 31[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
    let me never be put to shame;
    deliver me in your righteousness.
Turn your ear to me,
    come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
    a strong fortress to save me.
Since you are my rock and my fortress,
    for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
Keep me free from the trap that is set for me,
    for you are my refuge.
Into your hands I commit my spirit;
    deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.

I hate those who cling to worthless idols;
    as for me, I trust in the Lord.
I will be glad and rejoice in your love,
    for you saw my affliction
    and knew the anguish of my soul.
You have not given me into the hands of the enemy
    but have set my feet in a spacious place.

Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress;
    my eyes grow weak with sorrow,
    my soul and body with grief.
10 My life is consumed by anguish
    and my years by groaning;
my strength fails because of my affliction,[b]
    and my bones grow weak.
11 Because of all my enemies,
    I am the utter contempt of my neighbors
and an object of dread to my closest friends—
    those who see me on the street flee from me.
12 I am forgotten as though I were dead;
    I have become like broken pottery.
13 For I hear many whispering,
    “Terror on every side!”
They conspire against me
    and plot to take my life.

14 But I trust in you, Lord;
    I say, “You are my God.”
15 My times are in your hands;
    deliver me from the hands of my enemies,
    from those who pursue me.
16 Let your face shine on your servant;
    save me in your unfailing love.
17 Let me not be put to shame, Lord,
    for I have cried out to you;
but let the wicked be put to shame
    and be silent in the realm of the dead.
18 Let their lying lips be silenced,
    for with pride and contempt
    they speak arrogantly against the righteous.

19 How abundant are the good things
    that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
    on those who take refuge in you.
20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them
    from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling
    from accusing tongues.

21 Praise be to the Lord,
    for he showed me the wonders of his love
    when I was in a city under siege.
22 In my alarm I said,
    “I am cut off from your sight!”
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
    when I called to you for help.

23 Love the Lord, all his faithful people!
    The Lord preserves those who are true to him,
    but the proud he pays back in full.
24 Be strong and take heart,
    all you who hope in the Lord.

詩篇 31

信靠上帝的禱告

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1耶和華啊,我尋求你的庇護,
求你讓我永不蒙羞;
你是公義的,求你拯救我。
求你側耳聽我的呼求,
快來救我,作我堅固的避難所,
作拯救我的堡壘。
你是我的磐石,我的堡壘,
求你為了自己的名而引導我,帶領我。
你是我的避難所,
求你救我脫離人們為我設下的陷阱。
我將靈魂交托給你。
信實的上帝耶和華啊,
你必救贖我。
我憎恨拜假神的人,
我信靠耶和華。
你已經看見我的困苦,
知道我心中的愁煩,
你的恩慈使我歡喜快樂。
你沒有將我交給仇敵,
而是領我到寬闊之地。
耶和華啊,我落在苦難之中,
求你憐憫我,
我雙眼哭腫,身心疲憊。
10 我的生命被愁苦吞噬,
歲月被哀傷耗盡,
力量因罪惡而消逝,
我成了枯骨一堆。
11 仇敵羞辱我,
鄰居厭棄我,
朋友害怕我,
路人紛紛躲避我。
12 我就像已死之人,被人遺忘;
又像破碎的陶器,被人丟棄。
13 我聽見許多人譭謗我,
驚恐籠罩著我。
他們圖謀不軌,
謀害我的性命。

14 然而,耶和華啊,
我依然信靠你;
我說:「你是我的上帝。」
15 我的時日都掌握在你手中,
求你救我脫離仇敵和追逼我的人。
16 求你笑顏垂顧僕人,
施慈愛拯救我。
17 耶和華啊,我曾向你呼求,
求你不要叫我蒙羞。
求你使惡人蒙羞,
寂然無聲地躺在陰間。
18 願你堵住撒謊之人的口,
他們驕傲自大,
狂妄地攻擊義人。
19 你的恩惠何其大——為敬畏你的人而預備,
在世人面前賜給投靠你的人。
20 你把他們藏在你那裡,
使他們得到庇護,
免遭世人暗算。
你使他們在你的居所安然無恙,
免受惡言惡語的攻擊。
21 耶和華當受稱頌!
因為我被困城中時,
祂以奇妙的愛待我。
22 我曾驚恐地說:
「你丟棄了我!」
其實你聽了我的呼求。
23 耶和華忠心的子民啊,
你們要愛祂。
祂保護忠心的人,
嚴懲驕傲的人。
24 凡仰望耶和華的人啊,
要剛強壯膽!
