Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

诗篇 106

上帝恩待祂的子民

1你们要赞美耶和华!
要称谢耶和华,
因为祂是美善的,
祂的慈爱永远长存!
谁能述说耶和华的大能作为?
谁能道尽祂当受赞美之处?
那些行事公正,
持守公义的人有福了。
耶和华啊!
你恩待你子民的时候,
求你别忘了我;
你拯救他们的时候,
求你帮助我,
使我看到你所拣选的人繁荣昌盛,
与他们同乐,
与你的子民一同夸耀。
我们跟祖先一样也犯了罪,
行事邪恶。
我们祖先在埃及漠视你行的神迹,
忘记你向他们屡施慈爱,
在红海边反叛你。

但祂为了自己的名拯救了他们,
以彰显祂的大能。
祂斥责红海,海就干了,
祂带领他们走过深渊,
如履干地。
10 祂救他们逃脱敌人的追赶,
从仇敌的手中救赎了他们。
11 海水淹没了敌军,
没有一人生还。
12 那时他们才相信祂的话,
歌唱赞美祂。
13 然而,他们很快忘了祂的作为,
不愿等候祂的引导。
14 他们在旷野大起贪念,
试探上帝。
15 祂满足了他们的要求,
但在他们当中降下了瘟疫。
16 他们还在营中嫉妒摩西和耶和华拣选为祭司的亚伦。
17 于是大地裂开,
吞没了大坍、亚比兰和他们的家人。
18 火在他们的党羽中烧起,
消灭了这些恶人。
19 他们在何烈山铸造牛犊,祭拜偶像,
20 他们把荣耀的上帝变成了吃草之牛的铸像。
21 他们忘记了拯救他们的上帝,
祂曾在埃及行奇事,
22 在含地行神迹,
在红海边行可畏的事。
23 因此祂说要消灭他们。
若不是祂所拣选的摩西为他们求情,
祂早已在烈怒中毁灭了他们。
24 他们藐视那佳美之地,
不相信祂的应许。
25 他们在帐篷里发怨言,
不听从祂的命令。
26 因此,祂举手起誓要使他们倒毙在旷野,
27 使他们的后代分散到各族各方去。
28 他们在毗珥祭拜巴力,
吃献给假神的祭物。
29 他们的所作所为触怒耶和华,
以致瘟疫降在他们中间,
30 直到非尼哈起来惩罚罪人,
瘟疫才停止。
31 这就是他的义行,世代永存。
32 他们在米利巴泉边惹耶和华发怒,
连累了摩西。
33 因为他们惹摩西发怒,
以致他说了鲁莽的话。
34 他们没有照耶和华的命令消灭外族人,
35 反倒与他们混居,
仿效他们的习俗,
36 拜他们的神像,陷入网罗。
37 他们把自己的儿女当祭物献给鬼魔,
38 他们把自己的儿女献给迦南的神像作祭物,
流他们儿女无辜的血,
玷污了那地方。
39 他们的行为玷污了自己,
使自己沦为淫妇。
40 耶和华因此向祂的子民发怒,
厌恶他们,
41 使他们落在列邦的手中,
受敌人的辖制。
42 他们的敌人压迫他们,
奴役他们。
43 祂多次拯救他们,
他们却执意背叛,
陷入罪中不能自拔。
44 但祂听见他们在苦难中呼求时,
仍然眷顾他们。
45 祂没有忘记与他们立的约,
因祂伟大无比的爱而怜悯他们。
46 祂使掳掠他们的人怜悯他们。
47 我们的上帝耶和华啊,
求你拯救我们,
从各国招聚我们,
使我们可以称谢你的圣名,
欢然赞美你。
48 以色列的上帝耶和华永永远远当受称颂。
愿万民都说:“阿们!”
你们要赞美耶和华!

Psalm 106

Psalm 106

Praise the Lord.

Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good.
    His faithful love continues forever.
Who can speak enough about the mighty acts of the Lord?
    Who can praise him as much as he should be praised?
Blessed are those who always do what is fair.
    Blessed are those who keep doing what is right.
Lord, remember me when you bless your people.
    Help me when you save them.
Then I will enjoy the good things you give your chosen ones.
    I will be joyful together with your people.
    I will join them when they praise you.

We have sinned, just as our people of long ago did.
    We too have done what is evil and wrong.
When our people were in Egypt,
    they forgot about the Lord’s miracles.
They didn’t remember his many kind acts.
    At the Red Sea they refused to obey him.
But he saved them for the honor of his name.
    He did it to make his mighty power known.
He ordered the Red Sea to dry up, and it did.
    He led his people through it as if it were a desert.
10 He saved them from the power of their enemies.
    He set them free from their control.
11 The waters covered their enemies.
    Not one of them escaped alive.
12 Then his people believed his promises
    and sang praise to him.

13 But they soon forgot what he had done.
    They didn’t wait for what he had planned to happen.
14 In the desert they longed for food.
    In that dry and empty land they tested God.
15 So he gave them what they asked for.
    But he also sent a sickness that killed many of them.

16 In their camp some of them became jealous of Moses and Aaron.
    Aaron had been set apart to serve the Lord.
17 The ground opened up and swallowed Dathan.
    It buried Abiram and his followers.
18 Fire blazed among all of them.
    Flames destroyed those evil people.

19 At Mount Horeb they made a metal statue of a bull calf.
    They worshiped that statue of a god.
20 They traded their glorious God
    for a statue of a bull that eats grass.
21 They forgot the God who saved them.
    They forgot the God who had done great things in Egypt.
22 They forgot the miracles he did in the land of Ham.
    They forgot the wonderful things he did by the Red Sea.
23 So he said he would destroy them.
    But Moses, his chosen one,
stood up for them.
    He kept God’s anger from destroying them.

24 Later on, they refused to enter the pleasant land of Canaan.
    They didn’t believe God’s promise.
25 In their tents they told the Lord how unhappy they were.
    They didn’t obey him.
26 So he lifted up his hand and promised
    that he would make them die in the desert.
27 He promised he would scatter their children’s children among the nations.
    He would make them die in other lands.

28 They joined in worshiping the Baal that was worshiped at Peor.
    They ate food that had been offered to gods that aren’t even alive.
29 Their evil ways made the Lord angry.
    So a plague broke out among them.
30 But Phinehas stood up and took action.
    Then the plague stopped.
31 What Phinehas did made him right with the Lord.
    It will be remembered for all time to come.

32 By the waters of Meribah the Lord’s people made him angry.
    Moses got in trouble because of them.
33 They refused to obey the Spirit of God.
    So Moses spoke without thinking.

34 They didn’t destroy the nations in Canaan
    as the Lord had commanded them.
35 Instead, they mixed with those nations
    and adopted their ways.
36 They worshiped statues of their gods.
    That became a trap for them.
37 They sacrificed their sons and daughters
    as offerings to false gods.
38 They killed those who weren’t guilty of doing anything wrong.
    They killed their own sons and daughters.
They sacrificed them as offerings to statues of the gods of Canaan.
    The land became “unclean” because of the blood of their children.
39 The people made themselves impure by what they had done.
    They weren’t faithful to the Lord.

40 So the Lord became angry with his people.
    He turned away from his own children.
41 He handed them over to the nations.
    Their enemies ruled over them.
42 Their enemies treated them badly
    and kept them under their power.
43 Many times the Lord saved them.
    But they refused to obey him.
    So he destroyed them because of their sins.

44 Yet he heard them when they cried out.
    He paid special attention to their suffering.
45 Because they were his people, he remembered his covenant.
    Because of his great love, he felt sorry for them.
46 He made all those who held them as prisoners
    have mercy on them.

47 Lord our God, save us.
    Bring us back from among the nations.
Then we will give thanks to you, because your name is holy.
    We will celebrate by praising you.

48 Give praise to the Lord, the God of Israel,
    for ever and ever.

Let all the people say, “Amen!”

Praise the Lord.
