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!

New Living Translation

Psalm 105

Psalm 105

Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.
    Let the whole world know what he has done.
Sing to him; yes, sing his praises.
    Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds.
Exult in his holy name;
    rejoice, you who worship the Lord.
Search for the Lord and for his strength;
    continually seek him.
Remember the wonders he has performed,
    his miracles, and the rulings he has given,
you children of his servant Abraham,
    you descendants of Jacob, his chosen ones.

He is the Lord our God.
    His justice is seen throughout the land.
He always stands by his covenant—
    the commitment he made to a thousand generations.
This is the covenant he made with Abraham
    and the oath he swore to Isaac.
10 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree,
    and to the people of Israel as a never-ending covenant:
11 “I will give you the land of Canaan
    as your special possession.”

12 He said this when they were few in number,
    a tiny group of strangers in Canaan.
13 They wandered from nation to nation,
    from one kingdom to another.
14 Yet he did not let anyone oppress them.
    He warned kings on their behalf:
15 “Do not touch my chosen people,
    and do not hurt my prophets.”

16 He called for a famine on the land of Canaan,
    cutting off its food supply.
17 Then he sent someone to Egypt ahead of them—
    Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18 They bruised his feet with fetters
    and placed his neck in an iron collar.
19 Until the time came to fulfill his dreams,[a]
    the Lord tested Joseph’s character.
20 Then Pharaoh sent for him and set him free;
    the ruler of the nation opened his prison door.
21 Joseph was put in charge of all the king’s household;
    he became ruler over all the king’s possessions.
22 He could instruct[b] the king’s aides as he pleased
    and teach the king’s advisers.

23 Then Israel arrived in Egypt;
    Jacob lived as a foreigner in the land of Ham.
24 And the Lord multiplied the people of Israel
    until they became too mighty for their enemies.
25 Then he turned the Egyptians against the Israelites,
    and they plotted against the Lord’s servants.

26 But the Lord sent his servant Moses,
    along with Aaron, whom he had chosen.
27 They performed miraculous signs among the Egyptians,
    and wonders in the land of Ham.
28 The Lord blanketed Egypt in darkness,
    for they had defied[c] his commands to let his people go.
29 He turned their water into blood,
    poisoning all the fish.
30 Then frogs overran the land
    and even invaded the king’s bedrooms.
31 When the Lord spoke, flies descended on the Egyptians,
    and gnats swarmed across Egypt.
32 He sent them hail instead of rain,
    and lightning flashed over the land.
33 He ruined their grapevines and fig trees
    and shattered all the trees.
34 He spoke, and hordes of locusts came—
    young locusts beyond number.
35 They ate up everything green in the land,
    destroying all the crops in their fields.
36 Then he killed the oldest son in each Egyptian home,
    the pride and joy of each family.

37 The Lord brought his people out of Egypt, loaded with silver and gold;
    and not one among the tribes of Israel even stumbled.
38 Egypt was glad when they were gone,
    for they feared them greatly.
39 The Lord spread a cloud above them as a covering
    and gave them a great fire to light the darkness.
40 They asked for meat, and he sent them quail;
    he satisfied their hunger with manna—bread from heaven.
41 He split open a rock, and water gushed out
    to form a river through the dry wasteland.
42 For he remembered his sacred promise
    to his servant Abraham.
43 So he brought his people out of Egypt with joy,
    his chosen ones with rejoicing.
44 He gave his people the lands of pagan nations,
    and they harvested crops that others had planted.
45 All this happened so they would follow his decrees
    and obey his instructions.

Praise the Lord!
