Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

诗篇 99

上帝是圣洁的君王

1耶和华掌权,万民当战抖;
祂坐在基路伯天使之上,
大地当战抖。
耶和华在锡安伟大无比,
超越万邦。
万国要赞美你伟大而可畏的名,
你是圣洁的。
你是大能的君王,
喜爱正义,维护公平,
在雅各家秉公行义。
要尊崇我们的上帝耶和华,
俯伏在祂脚凳前敬拜,
祂是圣洁的。
祂的祭司中有摩西和亚伦,
呼求祂的人中有撒母耳。
他们求告耶和华,
祂就应允他们。
祂在云柱中向他们说话,
他们遵守祂赐下的法度和律例。
耶和华,我们的上帝啊,
你应允了他们,
向他们显明你是赦罪的上帝,
但也惩罚他们的罪恶。
要尊崇我们的上帝耶和华,
在祂的圣山上敬拜祂,
因为我们的上帝耶和华是圣洁的。

The Message

Psalm 99

11-3 God rules. On your toes, everybody!
He rules from his angel throne—take notice!
God looms majestic in Zion,
He towers in splendor over all the big names.
Great and terrible your beauty: let everyone praise you!
    Holy. Yes, holy.

4-5 Strong King, lover of justice,
You laid things out fair and square;
You set down the foundations in Jacob,
Foundation stones of just and right ways.
Honor God, our God; worship his rule!
    Holy. Yes, holy.

6-9 Moses and Aaron were his priests,
Samuel among those who prayed to him.
They prayed to God and he answered them;
He spoke from the pillar of cloud.
And they did what he said; they kept the law he gave them.
And then God, our God, answered them
(But you were never soft on their sins).
Lift high God, our God; worship at his holy mountain.
    Holy. Yes, holy is God our God.
