Amplified Bible

Psalm 105

The Lord’s Wonderful Works in Behalf of Israel.

1O give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the people.

Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
Speak of all His wonderful acts and devoutly praise them.

Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those who seek and require the Lord [as their most essential need] rejoice.

Seek and deeply long for the Lord and His strength [His power, His might];
Seek and deeply long for His face and His presence continually.

Remember [with awe and gratitude] the wonderful things which He has done,
His amazing deeds and the judgments uttered by His mouth [on His enemies, as in Egypt],

O you offspring of Abraham, His servant,
O you sons of Jacob, His chosen ones!

He is the Lord our God;
His judgments are in all the earth.


He has remembered His covenant forever,
The word which He commanded and established to a [a]thousand generations,

The covenant which He made with Abraham,
And His sworn oath to Isaac,
10 
Which He confirmed to Jacob as a statute,
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11 
Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
As the measured portion of your inheritance.”
12 
When there were only a few men in number,
Very few [in fact], and strangers in it;
13 
And they wandered from one nation to another,
From one kingdom to another people,
14 
He allowed no man to oppress them;
He rebuked kings for their sakes, saying,
15 
“Do not touch My anointed ones,
And do My prophets no harm.”

16 
And He called for a famine upon the land [of Egypt];
He [b]cut off every source of bread.
17 
He sent a man before them,
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18 
His feet they hurt with shackles;
[c]He was put in chains of iron,
19 
Until the time that his word [of prophecy regarding his brothers] came true,
The word of the Lord tested and refined him.
20 
The king sent and released him,
The ruler of the peoples [of Egypt], and set him free.
21 
He made Joseph lord of his house
And ruler of all his possessions,
22 
To imprison his princes at his will,
That he might teach his elders wisdom.
23 
Israel also came into Egypt;
Thus Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24 
There the Lord greatly increased [the number of] His people,
And made them more powerful than their enemies.

25 
He turned the heart [of the Egyptians] to hate His people,
To deal craftily with His servants.
26 
He sent Moses His servant,
And Aaron, whom He had chosen.
27 
They exhibited His wondrous signs among them,
Great miracles in the land of Ham (Egypt).
28 
He sent [thick, oppressive] darkness and made the land dark;
And Moses and Aaron did not rebel against His words.
29 
He turned Egypt’s waters into blood
And caused their fish to die.
30 
Their land swarmed with frogs,
Even in the chambers of their kings.
31 
He spoke, and there came swarms of flies
And gnats in all their territory.
32 
He gave them hail for rain,
With flaming fire in their land.
33 
He struck their vines also and their fig trees,
And shattered the [ice-laden] trees of their territory.
34 
He spoke, and the [migratory] locusts came,
And the young locusts, even without number,
35 
And ate up all the vegetation in their land,
And devoured the fruit of their ground.
36 
He also struck down all the firstborn in their land,
The first fruits and chief substance of all their strength.

37 
He brought the sons of Israel out [of Egypt] with silver and gold,
And among their tribes there was not one who stumbled.
38 
Egypt was glad when they departed,
For the dread and fear of them had fallen on the Egyptians.
39 
The Lord spread a cloud as a covering [by day],
And a fire to illumine the night.
40 
The Israelites asked, and He brought quail,
And satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41 
He opened the rock and water flowed out;
It ran in the dry places like a river.
42 
For He remembered His holy word
To Abraham His servant;
43 
He brought out His people with joy,
And His chosen ones with a joyful shout,
44 
He gave them the lands of the nations [of Canaan],
So that they would possess the fruits of those peoples’ labor,
45 
So that they might observe His precepts
And keep His laws [obediently accepting and honoring and valuing them].
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 105:8 There were twenty-six recorded generations from Adam to Moses. The ancient rabbis took “thousand” here very literally and maintained that God originally planned to give the Law to the thousandth generation, but He foresaw that they would be wicked, so He declined to create 974 generations and gave the Law to the twenty-sixth generation (Moses) instead.
  2. Psalm 105:16 Lit broke the whole rod of, referring to the fact that bread was stored as ring-shaped loaves on a rod. If the rod was broken, the loaves fell off and were lost or ruined.
  3. Psalm 105:18 Lit his soul came into.

诗篇 105

上帝和祂的子民

1你们要称谢耶和华,呼求祂的名,
在列邦传扬祂的作为。
要歌颂、赞美祂,
述说祂一切奇妙的作为。
要以祂的圣名为荣,
愿寻求耶和华的人都欢欣。
要寻求耶和华和祂的能力,
时常来到祂面前。
5-6 祂仆人亚伯拉罕的后裔,
祂所拣选的雅各的子孙啊,
要记住祂所行的神迹奇事和祂口中的判词。
祂是我们的上帝耶和华,
祂在普天下施行审判。
祂永远记得祂的约,
历经千代也不忘祂的应许,
就是祂与亚伯拉罕所立的约,
向以撒所起的誓。
10 祂把这约定为律例赐给雅各,
定为永远的约赐给以色列。
11 祂说:“我必把迦南赐给你,
作为你的产业。”
12 那时他们人丁稀少,
在当地寄居。
13 他们在异国他乡流离飘零。
14 耶和华不容人压迫他们,
还为他们的缘故责备君王,
15 说:“不可难为我膏立的人,
也不可伤害我的先知。”
16 祂在那里降下饥荒,
断绝一切食物的供应。
17 祂派一个人率先前往,
这人就是被卖为奴隶的约瑟。
18 他被戴上脚镣,套上枷锁,
19 直到后来他的预言应验,
耶和华的话试炼了他。
20 埃及王下令释放他,
百姓的首领给他自由,
21 派他执掌朝政,
管理国中的一切,
22 有权柄管束王的大臣,
将智慧传授王的长老。

23 以色列来到埃及,
寄居在含地。
24 耶和华使祂的子民生养众多,
比他们的仇敌还要强盛。
25 祂使仇敌憎恨他们,
用诡计虐待他们。
26 祂派遣祂的仆人摩西和祂拣选的亚伦,
27 在埃及行神迹,
在含地行奇事。
28 祂降下黑暗,使黑暗笼罩那里;
他们没有违背祂的话。
29 祂使埃及的水变成血,
鱼都死去;
30 又使国中到处是青蛙,
王宫禁院也不能幸免。
31 祂一发命令,
苍蝇蜂拥而至,虱子遍满全境。
32 祂使雨变成冰雹,
遍地电光闪闪。
33 祂击倒他们的葡萄树和无花果树,
摧毁他们境内的树木。
34 祂一发声,
就飞来无数蝗虫和蚂蚱,
35 吃尽他们土地上的植物,
吃尽他们田间的出产。
36 祂又击杀他们境内所有的长子,
就是他们年轻力壮时生的长子。
37 祂带领以色列人携金带银地离开埃及,
各支派中无人畏缩。
38 埃及人惧怕他们,
乐见他们离去。

39 祂铺展云彩为他们遮荫,
晚上用火给他们照明。
40 他们祈求,
祂就赐下鹌鹑,降下天粮,
叫他们饱足。
41 祂使磐石裂开、涌出水来,
在干旱之地奔流成河。
42 因为祂没有忘记祂赐给仆人亚伯拉罕的神圣应许。
43 祂带领自己的子民欢然离去,
祂所拣选的百姓欢唱着前行。
44 祂把列国的土地赐给他们,
使他们获得别人的劳动成果。
45 祂这样做是要使他们持守祂的命令,
遵行祂的律法。
你们要赞美耶和华!
