诗篇 78

上帝引导祂的子民

亚萨的训诲诗。

1我的百姓啊!
你们要听我的教导,
侧耳倾听我的话。
我要开口讲比喻,
道出古时的奥秘,
是我们所闻所知、世代流传下来的事。
我们不要在子孙面前隐瞒事实,
要把耶和华当受称颂的作为、
祂的权能和所行的奇事告诉下一代。
因为祂为雅各制定法度,
为以色列设立律法,
又吩咐我们的祖先把这些律法传给儿女,
好让他们也照样教导自己的子孙后代,
世代相传。
这样,他们就会信靠上帝,
遵行祂的命令,
不忘记祂的作为;
也不会像自己的祖先那样顽梗叛逆,
对上帝不忠,心怀二意。
以法莲人备上了弓箭,
却临阵逃命。
10 他们不遵守上帝的约,
拒绝遵行祂的律法。
11 他们忘记了祂的作为,
忘记了祂为他们所行的奇事。
12 祂曾在埃及,在琐安当着他们祖先的面行神迹。
13 祂把海水分开,
带领他们安然渡过;
祂使海水堆起如墙壁。
14 祂白天以云柱带领他们,
晚上用火柱引导他们。
15 祂在旷野劈开磐石,
供应他们丰沛的水源。
16 祂使水从磐石中滚滚流出,
如滔滔江河。
17 然而,他们仍旧犯罪,
在旷野反叛至高的上帝。
18 他们顽梗地试探上帝,
索要他们想吃的食物。
19 他们抱怨上帝,说:
“难道上帝可以在旷野摆宴席吗?
20 祂击打磐石,
水就涌出,流淌成河,
但祂能赐给我们——祂的子民食物和肉吗?”
21 耶和华听后大怒,
祂的怒火烧向雅各,
祂的怒气撒向以色列。
22 因为他们不相信上帝,也不信靠祂的拯救。
23 祂向穹苍发出命令,
又打开天门,
24 降下吗哪给他们吃,赐下天粮。
25 他们吃了天使的食物,
上帝赐给他们丰富的食物。
26 祂使空中刮起东风,
用大能引来南风,
27 使飞鸟像雨点一般降在他们当中,多如尘埃,
使他们有多如海沙的肉吃。
28 祂使飞鸟降落在他们营中的帐篷周围,
29 让他们尽情地吃,
遂了他们的心愿。
30 但是,他们还没有吃完,
肉还在口中的时候,
31 上帝就向他们发怒,
杀掉了他们当中最强壮的,
消灭了以色列的青年。
32 即使如此,
他们依旧犯罪,
不相信上帝奇妙的作为。
33 所以上帝使他们虚度一生,
让他们的岁月充满恐惧。
34 直到上帝击杀他们的时候,
他们才回转,诚心寻求上帝。
35 他们才想起上帝是他们的磐石,
至高的上帝是他们的救赎主。
36 他们却虚情假意,满口谎言。
37 他们不忠于祂,
也不信守祂的约。
38 但上帝充满怜悯,
赦免了他们的罪,
没有毁灭他们。
祂多次收住怒气,
没有完全发出祂的烈怒。
39 祂顾念他们不过是血肉之躯,
像一阵风转眼消逝。
40 他们在旷野屡屡反叛祂,
使祂伤心。
41 他们再三试探上帝,
惹以色列的圣者发怒。
42 他们忘记了祂的大能,
忘记了祂救他们脱离压迫的日子,
43 也忘记了祂在埃及所行的神迹,
在琐安的田野所行的奇事。
44 祂曾使江河溪流变成血,
以致无人能喝。
45 祂曾使成群的苍蝇吞没他们,
使青蛙毁灭他们。
46 祂将他们的五谷赏给蚱蜢,
让蝗虫吃尽他们的收成。
47 祂用冰雹毁坏他们的葡萄树,
用严霜毁坏他们的无花果树,
48 又用冰雹毁灭他们的牛群,
用闪电毁灭他们的牲畜。
49 祂把怒火、烈怒、愤恨和祸患倾倒在他们身上,
遣下一群降灾的天使。
50 祂的怒气尽发,
使他们被瘟疫吞噬,难逃一死。
51 祂击杀了埃及人所有的长子,
就是含帐篷中头生的儿子。
52 祂领出自己的子民,
好像领出羊群,
引领他们经过旷野,
53 使他们一路平安,免受惊吓,
大海却淹没了他们的仇敌。
54 祂带领自己的子民来到圣地的边界,
来到祂亲手为他们预备的山区,
55 从他们面前赶出外族人,
把外族人的土地分给他们,
作为他们的产业,
使以色列各支派安顿下来。
56 可是,他们仍旧试探上帝,
反叛至高者,不遵行祂的法度。
57 他们跟祖先一样背信弃义,
像断弓一样毫不可靠。
58 他们建造丘坛,惹祂发怒;
他们竖起神像,令祂愤怒。
59 上帝知道了他们的恶行,
怒不可遏,
彻底弃绝了以色列人。
60 祂离弃了设在示罗的圣幕,
就是祂在人间的居所。
61 祂任凭自己的约柜被人掳去,
让自己的荣耀落在敌人手中。
62 祂使自己的子民被刀剑杀戮,
向自己的产业大发怒气。
63 青年被烈火吞噬,
少女无法婚嫁。
64 祭司丧身刀下,
寡妇无法哭丧。
65 那时,主像从睡眠中醒来,
又如酒后醒来的勇士。
66 祂击退仇敌,
叫他们永远蒙羞。
67 祂丢弃了约瑟的子孙,
没有拣选以法莲支派。
68 祂拣选了犹大支派,
祂所喜爱的锡安山。
69 祂为自己建造高耸的圣所,
使它像大地一样长存。
70 祂拣选了祂的仆人大卫,
把他从羊圈中召来,
71 让他离开牧羊的生活,
去牧养祂的子民雅各的后裔,
牧养祂的产业以色列。
72 于是,大卫以正直的心牧养他们,
用灵巧的手带领他们。

King James Version

Psalm 78

1Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.

We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.

For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:

That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:

That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:

And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.

10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;

11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.

12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.

13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.

14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.

15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.

16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.

17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.

18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.

19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?

20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?

21 Therefore the Lord heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;

22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:

23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,

24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.

25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.

26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.

27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:

28 And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.

29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;

30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,

31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.

32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.

33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.

34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.

35 And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.

36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.

37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.

38 But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.

39 For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.

40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!

41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.

42 They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.

43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan.

44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.

45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.

46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.

47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.

48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.

49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.

50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham:

52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.

55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.

56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:

57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.

59 When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:

60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men;

61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.

62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.

63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.

64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.

65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.

66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.

67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:

68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.

69 And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever.

70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:

71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.

72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
