圣咏集 Psalms
1达味诗歌,交与乐官,八度低音。1Help us, O Lord, none of the godly are left, the faithful have vanished.
2上主,求你拯救,因为热心者已缺少,忠诚的人在人间也已绝迹不见了。2Everyone lies; with flattering lips they speak from a double heart.
3人们彼此言谈虚伪,嘴唇圆滑,口是心非,3May the Lord cut off insincere lips, every glib tongue that utters deceit.
4愿上主将一切欺诈的口唇除去。把大言不惭的舌头剪除!4Many say, "Our strength lies in our tongue. We know how to speak, who will lord it over us?"
5他们扬言说:「我们以口以舌取胜;有口有唇护卫我们,谁能作我们的主人?」5"The poor are despoiled and the needy suffer, now I will save them," says the Lord. "I will give them security."
6「为了贫苦者的委屈,为了穷困者的叹息,我要立刻站起──上主说:将渴望救援的人救起。」6The promises of the Lord are sure and lasting - silver refined in the furnace seven times and freed from dross.
7上主的圣言是真诚的圣言,如同纯银经过七次的锻炼。7Hold us, O Lord, in your keeping; protect us always from this generation,
8上主,恳求你护祐我们,由这一代常拯救我们。8where the wicked prowl on all sides, and the basest are exalted.
