詩篇 103

上帝的慈愛

大衛的詩。

1我的心啊,要稱頌耶和華,
我要全心全意地稱頌祂的聖名。
我的心啊,要稱頌耶和華,
不要忘記祂的一切恩惠。
祂赦免我一切的罪惡,
醫治我一切的疾病。
祂救贖我的生命脫離死亡,
以慈愛和憐憫環繞我。
祂以美物滿足我的願望,
使我如鷹一般恢復青春。

耶和華為一切受欺壓的人伸張正義,主持公道。
祂讓摩西明白自己的旨意,
向以色列人彰顯自己的作為。
耶和華有憐憫和恩典,
不輕易發怒,充滿慈愛。
祂不永久責備人,
也不永遠懷怒。
10 祂沒有按我們的過犯對待我們,
也沒有照我們的罪惡懲罰我們。
11 因為天離地有多高,
祂對敬畏祂之人的愛也多大!
12 東離西有多遠,
祂叫我們的過犯離我們也多遠!
13 耶和華憐愛敬畏祂的人,
如同慈父憐愛自己的兒女。
14 因為祂知道我們的本源,
顧念我們不過是塵土。

15 世人的年日如同草芥,
如野地茂盛的花,
16 一經風吹,便無影無蹤,
永遠消逝。
17 耶和華永永遠遠愛敬畏祂的人,
以公義待他們的子子孫孫,
18 就是那些守祂的約、
一心遵行祂命令的人。

19 耶和華在天上設立了寶座,
祂的王權無所不及。
20 聽從耶和華的命令、遵行祂吩咐的大能天使啊,
你們要稱頌祂!
21 事奉耶和華、遵從祂旨意的天軍啊,
你們要稱頌祂!
22 耶和華所造的萬物啊,
要在祂掌管的各處稱頌祂。

我的心啊,要稱頌耶和華!

The Message

Psalm 103

A David Psalm

11-2 O my soul, bless God.
    From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless God,
    don’t forget a single blessing!

3-5 He forgives your sins—every one.
    He heals your diseases—every one.
    He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
    He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
    He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
    He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence.

6-18 God makes everything come out right;
    he puts victims back on their feet.
He showed Moses how he went about his work,
    opened up his plans to all Israel.
God is sheer mercy and grace;
    not easily angered, he’s rich in love.
He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold,
    nor hold grudges forever.
He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve,
    nor pay us back in full for our wrongs.
As high as heaven is over the earth,
    so strong is his love to those who fear him.
And as far as sunrise is from sunset,
    he has separated us from our sins.
As parents feel for their children,
    God feels for those who fear him.
He knows us inside and out,
    keeps in mind that we’re made of mud.
Men and women don’t live very long;
    like wildflowers they spring up and blossom,
But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly,
    leaving nothing to show they were here.
God’s love, though, is ever and always,
    eternally present to all who fear him,
Making everything right for them and their children
    as they follow his Covenant ways
    and remember to do whatever he said.

19-22 God has set his throne in heaven;
    he rules over us all. He’s the King!
So bless God, you angels,
    ready and able to fly at his bidding,
    quick to hear and do what he says.
Bless God, all you armies of angels,
    alert to respond to whatever he wills.
Bless God, all creatures, wherever you are—
    everything and everyone made by God.

And you, O my soul, bless God!
