诗篇 40

赞美上帝之歌

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1我曾耐心等候耶和华,
祂倾听了我的呼求。
祂把我从绝望的深渊拉出来,
救我脱离泥泞沼泽,
把我安置在磐石上,
使我步履稳健。
祂赐给我一首新歌,
一首赞美我们上帝的诗歌。
许多人看见便敬畏、信靠耶和华。
信靠耶和华的人有福了!
他们不随从骄傲自大、信靠假神的人。
我的上帝耶和华啊,
你行了许多奇事,
为我们定了许多美好的计划,
谁能与你相比!
你奇妙的作为不可胜数。
祭物和供品非你所悦,
你开通了我的耳朵,
燔祭和赎罪祭非你所要。
于是我说:
“看啊,我来了,
正如经卷上有关我的记载。
我的上帝啊,
我乐意遵行你的旨意,
我铭记你的律法。”
耶和华啊,你知道我在大会中宣扬你的公义,
没有闭口不言。
10 我述说你的信实和拯救之恩,
没有把你的公义隐而不宣,
没有在大会中避而不谈你的慈爱和真理。
11 耶和华啊,
求你不要收回你的怜悯,
愿你的慈爱和真理时刻守护我!
12 我患难重重,罪恶缠身,
看不到出路。
我的罪过比我的头发还多,
我心惊胆战。
13 耶和华啊,求你拯救我!
耶和华啊,求你快来帮助我!
14 愿谋取我性命的人蒙羞受辱!
愿喜欢我被害的人狼狈逃窜!
15 愿那些哈哈嘲笑我的人羞愧难当!
16 愿所有寻求你的人因你而欢喜快乐!
愿渴望蒙你拯救的人时常说:
“耶和华当受尊崇!”
17 我贫穷困苦,
但主眷顾我。
我的上帝啊,
你是我的帮助、我的拯救,
求你不要迟延!

King James Version

Psalm 40

1I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest.

10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me: O Lord, make haste to help me.

14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.

15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The Lord be magnified.

17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
