Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 113

讚美上帝的美善

1你們要讚美耶和華!
耶和華的僕人啊,
你們要讚美,讚美耶和華。
願耶和華的名受稱頌,
從現在直到永遠!
從日出之地到日落之處,
普世都應當讚美耶和華。
耶和華高居萬國之上,
祂的榮耀高過諸天。
誰能與我們的上帝耶和華相比?
祂坐在至高之處,
俯視諸天和大地。
祂從灰塵中提拔貧窮人,
從糞堆中擢升困苦人,
使他們與王子同坐,
與本國的王子同坐。
祂賜給不育的婦人兒女,
使她們成為快樂的母親。
你們要讚美耶和華!

The Message

Psalm 113

11-3 Hallelujah!
You who serve God, praise God!
    Just to speak his name is praise!
Just to remember God is a blessing—
    now and tomorrow and always.
From east to west, from dawn to dusk,
    keep lifting all your praises to God!

4-9 God is higher than anything and anyone,
    outshining everything you can see in the skies.
Who can compare with God, our God,
    so majestically enthroned,
Surveying his magnificent
    heavens and earth?
He picks up the poor from out of the dirt,
    rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash,
Seats them among the honored guests,
    a place of honor among the brightest and best.
He gives childless couples a family,
    gives them joy as the parents of children.
Hallelujah!
