诗篇 18

大卫的胜利之歌

耶和华的仆人大卫的诗,交给乐长。当时耶和华从众仇敌和扫罗手中拯救了他,他向耶和华吟唱此诗。

1耶和华啊,你是我的力量,
我爱你。
耶和华是我的磐石,我的堡垒,我的拯救者;
我的上帝是保护我的磐石,
我的盾牌,
是拯救我的力量,我的堡垒。
我求告当受颂赞的耶和华,
祂救我脱离仇敌。
死亡的锁链曾缠住我,
罪恶的狂流曾淹没我。
阴间的绳索曾捆绑我,
死亡的陷阱曾威胁我。
在苦难中我呼求耶和华,
向我的上帝求助。
祂从殿中垂听我的呼求,
我的声音达到祂耳中。
祂一发怒,大地震动,
山的根基摇晃。
祂的鼻孔冒烟,
口喷烈焰和火炭。
祂拨开云天,脚踩密云,
亲自降临。
10 祂乘着基路伯天使飞翔,
乘着风的翅膀疾驰。
11 祂藏身于黑暗中,
四围以密云作幔幕。
12 从祂面前的荣光中,
冰雹和火炭冲破云层。
13 耶和华在天上打雷,
至高者发出的声音响彻在冰雹和火炭中。
14 祂射出利箭驱散仇敌,
发出闪电击溃他们。
15 耶和华啊,你斥责一声,
鼻孔一吹气,海底就显现,
大地也露出根基。

16 祂从高天伸手抓住我,
从深渊中把我拉上来。
17 祂救我脱离强敌,
脱离我无法战胜的仇敌。
18 他们在我危难之时攻击我,
但耶和华扶持我。
19 祂拯救我,领我到宽阔之地,
因为祂喜悦我。
20 耶和华因我公义而善待我,
因我清白而赏赐我,
21 因为我坚守祂的道,
没有作恶背弃我的上帝。
22 我遵守祂的一切法令,
没有把祂的律例弃置一旁。
23 我在祂面前纯全无过,
没有沾染罪恶。
24 耶和华因我公义、
在祂面前清白而奖赏我。

25 仁慈的人,你以仁慈待他;
纯全的人,你以纯全待他;
26 纯洁的人,你以纯洁待他;
心术不正的人,你以计谋待他。
27 你搭救谦卑的人,
贬抑眼目高傲的人。
28 我的上帝耶和华啊,
你是我的明灯,
你使我的黑暗变为光明。
29 我倚靠你的力量迎战敌军,
靠着我的上帝跃过墙垣。

30 上帝的道完美,
耶和华的话纯全,
祂是投靠祂之人的盾牌。
31 除了耶和华以外,谁是上帝呢?
除了我们的上帝,谁是磐石呢?
32 是上帝赐我力量,
使我行为纯全。
33 祂使我的脚如母鹿的蹄,
稳踏在高处。
34 祂训练我,
使我的手能争战、
我的臂膀能拉开铜弓。
35 耶和华啊,你是拯救我的盾牌,
你的右手扶持我,
你的垂顾使我强大。
36 你使我脚下的道路宽阔,
不致滑倒。
37 我追赶仇敌直到追上,
不消灭他们决不回头。
38 我打垮他们,
使他们倒在我的脚下,
再也站不起来。
39 你赐我征战的能力,
使我的仇敌降服在我脚下。
40 你使我的仇敌狼狈而逃,
我歼灭了恨我的人。
41 他们高声求救,却无人搭救;
他们呼求耶和华,祂也不应允。
42 我把他们打得粉碎,
如同风中的灰尘;
我把他们倒掉,
如同街上的泥土。
43 你救我脱离我百姓的攻击,
立我做列国的元首。
素不认识的民族也归顺我。
44 他们望风而降,
外族人对我俯首称臣。
45 外族人闻风丧胆,
战战兢兢地走出他们的城池。
46 耶和华永远活着,
保护我的磐石当受颂赞,
拯救我的上帝当受尊崇。
47 祂是为我申冤的上帝,
祂使列邦臣服于我。
48 祂救我脱离仇敌,
使我胜过强敌,
拯救我脱离残暴之徒。
49 因此,耶和华啊,
我要在列邦中赞美你,
歌颂你的名。
50 你使你立的王大获全胜,
向你膏立的大卫及其后代广施慈爱,直到永远。

New Living Translation

Psalm 18

Psalm 18

For the choir director: A psalm of David, the servant of the Lord. He sang this song to the Lord on the day the Lord rescued him from all his enemies and from Saul. He sang:

I love you, Lord;
    you are my strength.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
    my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.
He is my shield, the power that saves me,
    and my place of safety.
I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
    and he saved me from my enemies.

The ropes of death entangled me;
    floods of destruction swept over me.
The grave[a] wrapped its ropes around me;
    death laid a trap in my path.
But in my distress I cried out to the Lord;
    yes, I prayed to my God for help.
He heard me from his sanctuary;
    my cry to him reached his ears.

Then the earth quaked and trembled.
    The foundations of the mountains shook;
    they quaked because of his anger.
Smoke poured from his nostrils;
    fierce flames leaped from his mouth.
    Glowing coals blazed forth from him.
He opened the heavens and came down;
    dark storm clouds were beneath his feet.
10 Mounted on a mighty angelic being,[b] he flew,
    soaring on the wings of the wind.
11 He shrouded himself in darkness,
    veiling his approach with dark rain clouds.
12 Thick clouds shielded the brightness around him
    and rained down hail and burning coals.[c]
13 The Lord thundered from heaven;
    the voice of the Most High resounded
    amid the hail and burning coals.
14 He shot his arrows and scattered his enemies;
    great bolts of lightning flashed, and they were confused.
15 Then at your command, O Lord,
    at the blast of your breath,
the bottom of the sea could be seen,
    and the foundations of the earth were laid bare.

16 He reached down from heaven and rescued me;
    he drew me out of deep waters.
17 He rescued me from my powerful enemies,
    from those who hated me and were too strong for me.
18 They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress,
    but the Lord supported me.
19 He led me to a place of safety;
    he rescued me because he delights in me.
20 The Lord rewarded me for doing right;
    he restored me because of my innocence.
21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord;
    I have not turned from my God to follow evil.
22 I have followed all his regulations;
    I have never abandoned his decrees.
23 I am blameless before God;
    I have kept myself from sin.
24 The Lord rewarded me for doing right.
    He has seen my innocence.

25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful;
    to those with integrity you show integrity.
26 To the pure you show yourself pure,
    but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.
27 You rescue the humble,
    but you humiliate the proud.
28 You light a lamp for me.
    The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness.
29 In your strength I can crush an army;
    with my God I can scale any wall.

30 God’s way is perfect.
    All the Lord’s promises prove true.
    He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
31 For who is God except the Lord?
    Who but our God is a solid rock?
32 God arms me with strength,
    and he makes my way perfect.
33 He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
    enabling me to stand on mountain heights.
34 He trains my hands for battle;
    he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.
35 You have given me your shield of victory.
    Your right hand supports me;
    your help[d] has made me great.
36 You have made a wide path for my feet
    to keep them from slipping.

37 I chased my enemies and caught them;
    I did not stop until they were conquered.
38 I struck them down so they could not get up;
    they fell beneath my feet.
39 You have armed me with strength for the battle;
    you have subdued my enemies under my feet.
40 You placed my foot on their necks.
    I have destroyed all who hated me.
41 They called for help, but no one came to their rescue.
    They even cried to the Lord, but he refused to answer.
42 I ground them as fine as dust in the wind.
    I swept them into the gutter like dirt.
43 You gave me victory over my accusers.
    You appointed me ruler over nations;
    people I don’t even know now serve me.
44 As soon as they hear of me, they submit;
    foreign nations cringe before me.
45 They all lose their courage
    and come trembling from their strongholds.

46 The Lord lives! Praise to my Rock!
    May the God of my salvation be exalted!
47 He is the God who pays back those who harm me;
    he subdues the nations under me
48     and rescues me from my enemies.
You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies;
    you save me from violent opponents.
49 For this, O Lord, I will praise you among the nations;
    I will sing praises to your name.
50 You give great victories to your king;
    you show unfailing love to your anointed,
    to David and all his descendants forever.
