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!

Psalm 105

Psalm 105

Give praise to the Lord and announce who he is.
    Tell the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him.
    Tell about all the wonderful things he has done.
Praise him, because his name is holy.
    Let the hearts of those who trust in the Lord be glad.
Seek the Lord and the strength he gives.
    Always seek him.

Remember the wonderful things he has done.
    Remember his miracles and how he judged our enemies.
Remember what he has done, you children of his servant Abraham.
    Remember it, you people of Jacob, God’s chosen ones.
He is the Lord our God.
    He judges the whole earth.

He will keep his covenant forever.
    He will keep his promise for all time to come.
He will keep the covenant he made with Abraham.
    He will keep the promise he made to Isaac.
10 He made it stand as a law for Jacob.
    He made it stand as a covenant for Israel that will last forever.
11 He said, “I will give you the land of Canaan.
    It will belong to you.”

12 At first there weren’t very many of God’s people.
    There were only a few, and they were strangers in the land.
13 They wandered from nation to nation.
    They wandered from one kingdom to another.
14 But God didn’t allow anyone to treat them badly.
    To keep them safe, he gave a command to kings.
15 He said to them, “Do not touch my anointed ones.
    Do not harm my prophets.”

16 He made the people in the land go hungry.
    He destroyed all their food supplies.
17 He sent a man ahead of them into Egypt.
    That man was Joseph. He had been sold as a slave.
18 The Egyptians put his feet in chains.
    They put an iron collar around his neck.
19 He was in prison until what he said would happen came true.
    The word of the Lord proved that he was right.
20 The king of Egypt sent for Joseph and let him out of prison.
    The ruler of many nations set him free.
21 He put Joseph in charge of his palace.
    He made him ruler over everything he owned.
22 Joseph was in charge of teaching the princes.
    He taught the elders how to think and live wisely.

23 Then the rest of Jacob’s family went to Egypt.
    The people of Israel lived as outsiders in the land of Ham.
24 The Lord gave his people so many children
    that there were too many of them for their enemies.
25 He made the Egyptians hate his people.
    The Egyptians made evil plans against them.
26 The Lord sent his servant Moses to the king of Egypt.
    He sent Aaron, his chosen one, along with him.
27 The Lord gave them the power to do signs among the Egyptians.
    They did his wonders in the land of Ham.
28 The Lord sent darkness over the land.
    He did it because the Egyptians had refused to obey his words.
29 He turned their rivers and streams into blood.
    He caused the fish in them to die.
30 Their land was covered with frogs.
    Frogs even went into the bedrooms of the rulers.
31 The Lord spoke, and large numbers of flies came.
    Gnats filled the whole country.
32 He turned their rain into hail.
    Lightning flashed all through their land.
33 He destroyed their vines and fig trees.
    He broke down the trees in Egypt.
34 He spoke, and the locusts came.
    There were so many of them they couldn’t be counted.
35 They ate up every green thing in the land.
    They ate up what the land produced.
36 Then he killed the oldest son of every family in Egypt.
    He struck down the oldest of all their sons.

37 He brought the people of Israel out of Egypt.
    The Egyptians loaded them down with silver and gold.
    From among the tribes of Israel no one got tired or fell down.
38 The Egyptians were glad when the people of Israel left.
    They were terrified because of Israel.
39 The Lord spread out a cloud to cover his people.
    He gave them a fire to light up the night.
40 They asked for meat, and he brought them quail.
    He fed them well with manna, the bread of heaven.
41 He broke open a rock, and streams of water poured out.
    They flowed like a river in the desert.

42 He remembered the holy promise
    he had made to his servant Abraham.
43 His chosen people shouted for joy
    as he brought them out of Egypt.
44 He gave them the lands of other nations.
    He let them take over what others had worked for.
45 He did it so they might obey his rules
    and follow his laws.

Praise the Lord.
