诗篇 33

颂赞之歌

1义人啊,
你们要欢然歌颂耶和华,
正直的人理应赞美祂。
你们要弹琴赞美耶和华,
弹奏十弦琴赞美祂。
要为祂唱新歌,
琴声要美妙,歌声要嘹亮。
因为耶和华的话是真理,
祂的作为信实可靠。
祂喜爱公平正义,
大地充满祂的慈爱。

诸天靠祂的话而造,
群星靠祂口中的气而成。
祂将海水聚在一处,把汪洋收进仓库。

愿普世都敬畏耶和华!
愿世人都尊崇祂!
因为祂一发话,就创造了天地;
祂一命令,就立定了万物。
10 祂挫败列国的谋算,
拦阻列邦的计划。
11 祂的计划永不落空,
祂的旨意万代长存。
12 尊祂为上帝的邦国有福了!
蒙拣选做祂子民的人有福了!

13 祂从天上俯视人间,
14 从祂的居所察看世上万民。
15 祂塑造人心,
洞察人的一切行为。

16 君王不能靠兵多取胜,
勇士不能凭力大获救。
17 靠战马取胜实属妄想,
马虽力大也不能救人。
18 但耶和华看顾敬畏祂、仰望祂慈爱的人。
19 祂救他们脱离死亡,
保护他们度过饥荒。
20 我们仰望耶和华,
祂是我们的帮助,
是我们的盾牌。
21 我们信靠祂的圣名,
我们的心因祂而充满喜乐。
22 耶和华啊,我们仰望你,求你向我们施慈爱。

Psalm 33

Psalm 33

You who are godly, sing with joy to the Lord.
    It is right for honest people to praise him.
With the harp, praise the Lord.
    With the lyre that has ten strings, make music to him.
Sing a new song to him.
    Play with skill, and shout with joy.

What the Lord says is right and true.
    He is faithful in everything he does.
The Lord loves what is right and fair.
    The earth is full of his faithful love.

The heavens were made when the Lord commanded it to happen.
    All the stars were created by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers together the waters of the sea.
    He puts the oceans in their places.
Let the whole earth have respect for the Lord.
    Let all the people in the world honor him.
He spoke, and the world came into being.
    He commanded, and it stood firm.
10 The Lord blocks the sinful plans of the nations.
    He keeps them from doing what they want to do.
11 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever.
    What he wants to do will last for all time.

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.
    Blessed are the people he chose to be his own.
13 From heaven the Lord looks down
    and sees everyone.
14 From his throne he watches
    all those who live on the earth.
15 He creates the hearts of all people.
    He is aware of everything they do.
16 A king isn’t saved just because his army is big.
    A soldier doesn’t escape just because he is very strong.
17 People can’t trust a horse to save them either.
    Though it is very strong, it can’t save them.
18 But the Lord looks with favor on those who respect him.
    He watches over those who put their hope in his faithful love.
19 He watches over them to save them from death.
    He wants to keep them alive when there is no food in the land.

20 We wait in hope for the Lord.
    He helps us. He is like a shield that keeps us safe.
21 Our hearts are full of joy because of him.
    We trust in him, because he is holy.
22 Lord, may your faithful love be with us.
    We put our hope in you.
