诗篇 103

上帝的慈爱

大卫的诗。

1我的心啊,要称颂耶和华,
我要全心全意地称颂祂的圣名。
我的心啊,要称颂耶和华,
不要忘记祂的一切恩惠。
祂赦免我一切的罪恶,
医治我一切的疾病。
祂救赎我的生命脱离死亡,
以慈爱和怜悯环绕我。
祂以美物满足我的愿望,
使我如鹰一般恢复青春。

耶和华为一切受欺压的人伸张正义,主持公道。
祂让摩西明白自己的旨意,
向以色列人彰显自己的作为。
耶和华有怜悯和恩典,
不轻易发怒,充满慈爱。
祂不永久责备人,
也不永远怀怒。
10 祂没有按我们的过犯对待我们,
也没有照我们的罪恶惩罚我们。
11 因为天离地有多高,
祂对敬畏祂之人的爱也多大!
12 东离西有多远,
祂叫我们的过犯离我们也多远!
13 耶和华怜爱敬畏祂的人,
如同慈父怜爱自己的儿女。
14 因为祂知道我们的本源,
顾念我们不过是尘土。

15 世人的年日如同草芥,
如野地茂盛的花,
16 一经风吹,便无影无踪,
永远消逝。
17 耶和华永永远远爱敬畏祂的人,
以公义待他们的子子孙孙,
18 就是那些守祂的约、
一心遵行祂命令的人。

19 耶和华在天上设立了宝座,
祂的王权无所不及。
20 听从耶和华的命令、遵行祂吩咐的大能天使啊,
你们要称颂祂!
21 事奉耶和华、遵从祂旨意的天军啊,
你们要称颂祂!
22 耶和华所造的万物啊,
要在祂掌管的各处称颂祂。

我的心啊,要称颂耶和华!

The Message

Psalm 103

A David Psalm

11-2 O my soul, bless God.
    From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless God,
    don’t forget a single blessing!

3-5 He forgives your sins—every one.
    He heals your diseases—every one.
    He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
    He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
    He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
    He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence.

6-18 God makes everything come out right;
    he puts victims back on their feet.
He showed Moses how he went about his work,
    opened up his plans to all Israel.
God is sheer mercy and grace;
    not easily angered, he’s rich in love.
He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold,
    nor hold grudges forever.
He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve,
    nor pay us back in full for our wrongs.
As high as heaven is over the earth,
    so strong is his love to those who fear him.
And as far as sunrise is from sunset,
    he has separated us from our sins.
As parents feel for their children,
    God feels for those who fear him.
He knows us inside and out,
    keeps in mind that we’re made of mud.
Men and women don’t live very long;
    like wildflowers they spring up and blossom,
But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly,
    leaving nothing to show they were here.
God’s love, though, is ever and always,
    eternally present to all who fear him,
Making everything right for them and their children
    as they follow his Covenant ways
    and remember to do whatever he said.

19-22 God has set his throne in heaven;
    he rules over us all. He’s the King!
So bless God, you angels,
    ready and able to fly at his bidding,
    quick to hear and do what he says.
Bless God, all you armies of angels,
    alert to respond to whatever he wills.
Bless God, all creatures, wherever you are—
    everything and everyone made by God.

And you, O my soul, bless God!
