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.

詩篇 105

上帝和祂的子民

1你們要稱謝耶和華,呼求祂的名,
在列邦傳揚祂的作為。
要歌頌、讚美祂,
述說祂一切奇妙的作為。
要以祂的聖名為榮,
願尋求耶和華的人都歡欣。
要尋求耶和華和祂的能力,
時常來到祂面前。
5-6 祂僕人亞伯拉罕的後裔,
祂所揀選的雅各的子孫啊,
要記住祂所行的神蹟奇事和祂口中的判詞。
祂是我們的上帝耶和華,
祂在普天下施行審判。
祂永遠記得祂的約,
歷經千代也不忘祂的應許,
就是祂與亞伯拉罕所立的約,
向以撒所起的誓。
10 祂把這約定為律例賜給雅各,
定為永遠的約賜給以色列。
11 祂說:「我必把迦南賜給你,
作為你的產業。」
12 那時他們人丁稀少,
在當地寄居。
13 他們在異國他鄉流離飄零。
14 耶和華不容人壓迫他們,
還為他們的緣故責備君王,
15 說:「不可難為我膏立的人,
也不可傷害我的先知。」
16 祂在那裡降下饑荒,
斷絕一切食物的供應。
17 祂派一個人率先前往,
這人就是被賣為奴隸的約瑟。
18 他被戴上腳鐐,套上枷鎖,
19 直到後來他的預言應驗,
耶和華的話試煉了他。
20 埃及王下令釋放他,
百姓的首領給他自由,
21 派他執掌朝政,
管理國中的一切,
22 有權柄管束王的大臣,
將智慧傳授王的長老。

23 以色列來到埃及,
寄居在含地。
24 耶和華使祂的子民生養眾多,
比他們的仇敵還要強盛。
25 祂使仇敵憎恨他們,
用詭計虐待他們。
26 祂派遣祂的僕人摩西和祂揀選的亞倫,
27 在埃及行神蹟,
在含地行奇事。
28 祂降下黑暗,使黑暗籠罩那裡;
他們沒有違背祂的話。
29 祂使埃及的水變成血,
魚都死去;
30 又使國中到處是青蛙,
王宮禁院也不能倖免。
31 祂一發命令,
蒼蠅蜂擁而至,蝨子遍滿全境。
32 祂使雨變成冰雹,
遍地電光閃閃。
33 祂擊倒他們的葡萄樹和無花果樹,
摧毀他們境內的樹木。
34 祂一發聲,
就飛來無數蝗蟲和螞蚱,
35 吃盡他們土地上的植物,
吃盡他們田間的出產。
36 祂又擊殺他們境內所有的長子,
就是他們年輕力壯時生的長子。
37 祂帶領以色列人攜金帶銀地離開埃及,
各支派中無人畏縮。
38 埃及人懼怕他們,
樂見他們離去。

39 祂鋪展雲彩為他們遮蔭,
晚上用火給他們照明。
40 他們祈求,
祂就賜下鵪鶉,降下天糧,
叫他們飽足。
41 祂使磐石裂開、湧出水來,
在乾旱之地奔流成河。
42 因為祂沒有忘記祂賜給僕人亞伯拉罕的神聖應許。
43 祂帶領自己的子民歡然離去,
祂所揀選的百姓歡唱著前行。
44 祂把列國的土地賜給他們,
使他們獲得別人的勞動成果。
45 祂這樣做是要使他們持守祂的命令,
遵行祂的律法。
你們要讚美耶和華!
