New International Version

Psalm 43

Psalm 43[a]

Vindicate me, my God,
    and plead my cause
    against an unfaithful nation.
Rescue me from those who are
    deceitful and wicked.
You are God my stronghold.
    Why have you rejected me?
Why must I go about mourning,
    oppressed by the enemy?
Send me your light and your faithful care,
    let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain,
    to the place where you dwell.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
    to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you with the lyre,
    O God, my God.

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
    Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
    for I will yet praise him,
    my Savior and my God.

  1. Psalm 43:1 In many Hebrew manuscripts Psalms 42 and 43 constitute one psalm.

诗篇 43

流亡异乡者的祷告

1上帝啊,
求你为我伸张正义,
在不虔敬的人面前为我辩护,
救我脱离诡诈邪恶的人。
你是保护我的上帝,
你为何丢弃我?
为何让我受仇敌的攻击,
使我哀伤不已呢?
求你以光明和真理引导我,
领我到你的圣山,到你的居所。
我要到上帝的祭坛前,
到赐我喜乐的上帝面前。
上帝啊,我的上帝,
我要弹琴赞美你。
我的心啊!
你为何沮丧?为何烦躁?
要仰望上帝,
因为我还要赞美祂——我的救主,我的上帝。
