Salme 111

Herrens storhed og mægtige undere

1Halleluja!
Af hele mit hjerte vil jeg takke Herren,[a]
    berømme ham midt i de gudfrygtiges forsamling.
De ting, han gør, er vidunderlige,
    enhver, der oplever dem, må juble og glæde sig.
Fantastiske er alle hans undere,
    glem ikke hans uendelige godhed.
Herren er nådig og barmhjertig,
    ingen må glemme hans velgerninger.
Jeg ved, at han altid sørger for sit folk.
    Kan han nogensinde glemme sin pagt med dem?
Landet, som tilhørte de fremmede, gav han til sit eget folk,
    med magt drev han de andre væk for øjnene af sine udvalgte.
Når han handler, gør han altid det rigtige,
    ordene fra ham kan man stole på.
Pas på, at I trofast adlyder hans bud,
    retsindighed har evighedsværdi.
Sit folk har han sat i frihed,
    til evig tid varer hans pagt med dem.
Underfuld og hellig er Herren.
10     Visdom udspringer af ærefrygt for Gud.
Ypperlig er den indsigt, man får ved at adlyde ham.
    Æren er hans for evigt!

Notas al pie

  1. 111,1 Salmen er akrostisk, bortset fra indledningsordet, så hver linie begynder med næste bogstav i alfabetet. Oversættelsen er lidt mere fri end normalt for at opnå en tilsvarende effekt.

Psalm 111

Psalm 111

Praise the Lord.

I will praise the Lord with all my heart.
    I will praise him where honest people gather for worship.

The Lord has done great things.
    All who take delight in those things think deeply about them.
What he does shows his glory and majesty.
    He will always do what is right.
The Lord causes his wonders to be remembered.
    He is kind and tender.
He provides food for those who have respect for him.
    He remembers his covenant forever.
He has shown his people what his power can do.
    He has given them the lands of other nations.
He is faithful and right in everything he does.
    All his rules can be trusted.
They will stand firm for ever and ever.
    They were given by the Lord.
    He is faithful and honest.
He set his people free.
    He made a covenant with them that will last forever.
    His name is holy and wonderful.

10 If you really want to become wise,
    you must begin by having respect for the Lord.
All those who follow his rules have good understanding.
    People should praise him forever.
