诗篇 107:1-43

卷五:诗篇107—150

第 107 篇

称谢上帝的美善

1你们要称谢耶和华,

因为祂是美善的;

祂的慈爱永远长存。

2-3耶和华救赎的人,

就是祂从敌人手中救赎出来、

从东西南北招聚的人,

都要称谢祂。

4他们在旷野中飘泊,居无定所,

5又饥又渴,陷入绝境。

6他们在危难中呼求耶和华,

祂就拯救他们脱离困境,

7带领他们走直路,

到可居住的城邑。

8他们当称谢耶和华的慈爱,

称谢祂为世人所行的奇事。

9因为祂满足干渴的人,

以美食喂饱饥饿的人。

10有些人坐在黑暗里,

在死亡的阴影下,

被铁链捆绑,

痛苦不堪。

11因为他们违背上帝的话,

藐视至高者的旨意,

12所以上帝用苦役使他们顺服,

他们跌倒也无人扶助。

13于是,他们在患难中呼求耶和华,

耶和华就拯救他们脱离困境。

14祂带领他们脱离黑暗和死亡的阴影,

断开他们的锁链。

15他们当称谢耶和华的慈爱,

称谢祂为世人所行的奇事。

16因为祂打碎了铜门,

砍断了铁闩。

17有些人愚顽,

因自己的悖逆和罪恶而受苦,

18食欲全消,几近死亡。

19于是,他们在患难中呼求耶和华,

耶和华便拯救他们脱离困境。

20祂一发令,就医治了他们,

救他们脱离死亡。

21他们当称谢耶和华的慈爱,

称谢祂为世人所行的奇事。

22他们当向祂献上感恩祭,

欢然歌颂祂的作为。

23有些人乘船在汪洋大海上经商,

24他们看见了耶和华的作为,

看见了祂在深海所行的奇事。

25祂一声令下,

狂风大作,巨浪滔天。

26他们的船只忽而被抛向半空,

忽而落入深渊,

他们吓得面无人色,

27东倒西歪,如同醉汉,

束手无策。

28于是,他们在患难中呼求耶和华,

耶和华便拯救他们脱离困境。

29祂使狂风止息,海浪平静。

30他们因风平浪静而欢喜,

祂带领他们到所向往的港湾。

31他们当称谢耶和华的慈爱,

称谢祂为世人所行的奇事。

32他们当在众人面前尊崇祂,

在众首领面前赞美祂。

33祂使江河变成荒漠,

水泉变成干地,

34叫沃土变成荒凉的盐碱地,

因为那里的居民邪恶。

35祂叫荒漠水塘遍布,

使旱地甘泉涌流。

36祂使饥饿的人住在那里,

建造可安居的城邑,

37耕种田地,栽植葡萄园,

收成丰硕。

38祂赐福给他们,

使他们人丁兴旺,

牲口有增无减。

39后来他们在压迫、患难和痛苦的煎熬下人口减少,

地位卑下。

40祂使贵族蒙羞受辱,

漂流在荒芜之地。

41但祂搭救贫苦的人脱离苦难,

使他们家族兴旺,多如羊群。

42正直人看见就欢喜,

邪恶人都哑口无言。

43有智慧的人都当留心这些事,

思想耶和华的慈爱。

King James Version

Psalm 107

1O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;

11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:

12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.

13 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.

14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.

15 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

16 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

19 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.

20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

21 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.

23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

24 These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.

25 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end.

28 Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

31 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.

33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;

34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.

36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;

37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.

38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.

40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.

41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.

42 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.

43 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.
