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!

New Living Translation

Psalm 40

Psalm 40

For the choir director: A psalm of David.

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
    and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
    out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
    and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
    They will put their trust in the Lord.

Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord,
    who have no confidence in the proud
    or in those who worship idols.
O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us.
    Your plans for us are too numerous to list.
    You have no equal.
If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds,
    I would never come to the end of them.

You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings.
    Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand[a]
    you don’t require burnt offerings or sin offerings.
Then I said, “Look, I have come.
    As is written about me in the Scriptures:
I take joy in doing your will, my God,
    for your instructions are written on my heart.”

I have told all your people about your justice.
    I have not been afraid to speak out,
    as you, O Lord, well know.
10 I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart;
    I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power.
I have told everyone in the great assembly
    of your unfailing love and faithfulness.

11 Lord, don’t hold back your tender mercies from me.
    Let your unfailing love and faithfulness always protect me.
12 For troubles surround me—
    too many to count!
My sins pile up so high
    I can’t see my way out.
They outnumber the hairs on my head.
    I have lost all courage.

13 Please, Lord, rescue me!
    Come quickly, Lord, and help me.
14 May those who try to destroy me
    be humiliated and put to shame.
May those who take delight in my trouble
    be turned back in disgrace.
15 Let them be horrified by their shame,
    for they said, “Aha! We’ve got him now!”

16 But may all who search for you
    be filled with joy and gladness in you.
May those who love your salvation
    repeatedly shout, “The Lord is great!”
17 As for me, since I am poor and needy,
    let the Lord keep me in his thoughts.
You are my helper and my savior.
    O my God, do not delay.
