New International Version

Psalm 79

Psalm 79

A psalm of Asaph.

O God, the nations have invaded your inheritance;
    they have defiled your holy temple,
    they have reduced Jerusalem to rubble.
They have left the dead bodies of your servants
    as food for the birds of the sky,
    the flesh of your own people for the animals of the wild.
They have poured out blood like water
    all around Jerusalem,
    and there is no one to bury the dead.
We are objects of contempt to our neighbors,
    of scorn and derision to those around us.

How long, Lord? Will you be angry forever?
    How long will your jealousy burn like fire?
Pour out your wrath on the nations
    that do not acknowledge you,
on the kingdoms
    that do not call on your name;
for they have devoured Jacob
    and devastated his homeland.

Do not hold against us the sins of past generations;
    may your mercy come quickly to meet us,
    for we are in desperate need.
Help us, God our Savior,
    for the glory of your name;
deliver us and forgive our sins
    for your name’s sake.
10 Why should the nations say,
    “Where is their God?”

Before our eyes, make known among the nations
    that you avenge the outpoured blood of your servants.
11 May the groans of the prisoners come before you;
    with your strong arm preserve those condemned to die.
12 Pay back into the laps of our neighbors seven times
    the contempt they have hurled at you, Lord.
13 Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture,
    will praise you forever;
from generation to generation
    we will proclaim your praise.

诗篇 79

祈求上帝拯救

亚萨的诗。

1上帝啊,
外族人侵占你的产业,
玷污你的圣殿,
使耶路撒冷沦为废墟。
他们把你仆人的尸体喂飞鸟,
把你忠心子民的尸体给野兽吃,
使耶路撒冷周围血流成河,
尸体无人埋葬。
我们成了列国羞辱的对象,
周围的人都嗤笑、讥讽我们。
耶和华啊,你向我们发怒,
要到何时呢?
难道要到永远吗?
你的怒火要烧到何时呢?
求你把烈怒撒向那些不承认你的列邦,
撒向那些不求告你的列国。
因为他们吞噬了雅各,
摧毁了他的家园。
求你不要向我们追讨我们祖先的罪,
愿你快快地怜悯我们,
因为我们已经落入绝望中。
拯救我们的上帝啊,
求你为了自己荣耀的名而帮助我们,
为你名的缘故拯救我们,
赦免我们的罪。
10 为何让列邦说:
“他们的上帝在哪里?”
求你让我们亲眼看见,
也让列邦都知道,
你为自己被害的子民申冤。
11 求你垂听被囚之人的哀叹,
求你用大能的臂膀留住死囚的性命。
12 主啊,我们的邻邦羞辱你,
求你以七倍的羞辱来报应他们。
13 这样,你的子民,你草场上的羊必永远称谢你,世代称颂你。
