Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 115

上帝是獨一真神

1耶和華啊,
不要將榮耀歸於我們,
不要歸於我們。
願榮耀歸於你的名,
因為你慈愛、信實!
為何讓列國說
「他們的上帝在哪裡」?
我們的上帝高居在天,
按自己的旨意行事。
他們的神像不過是人用金銀造的。
它們有口不能言,有眼不能看,
有耳不能聽,有鼻不能聞,
有手不能摸,有腳不能走,
有喉嚨也不能發聲。
那些製造它們、信靠它們的人也會和它們一樣。

以色列人啊,要信靠耶和華!
祂是你們的幫助,
是你們的盾牌。
10 亞倫家啊,要信靠耶和華!
祂是你們的幫助,
是你們的盾牌。
11 敬畏耶和華的人啊,要信靠祂!
祂是你們的幫助,
是你們的盾牌。[a]
12 耶和華眷顧我們,賜福給我們。
祂要賜福給以色列人,
賜福給亞倫家。
13 耶和華要賜福給一切敬畏祂的人,
不分尊貴卑賤。
14 願耶和華使你們和你們的後代人丁興旺!
15 願創造天地的耶和華賜福給你們!
16 高天屬於耶和華,
但祂把大地賜給了世人。
17 死人不能歌頌耶和華,
下到墳墓的人不能讚美祂。
18 但我們要讚美耶和華,
從現在直到永遠。
你們要讚美耶和華!

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 115

Psalm 115

Lord, may glory be given to you, not to us.
    You are loving and faithful.

Why do the nations ask,
    “Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven.
    He does anything he wants to do.
But the statues of their gods are made out of silver and gold.
    They are made by human hands.
They have mouths but can’t speak.
    They have eyes but can’t see.
They have ears but can’t hear.
    They have noses but can’t smell.
They have hands but can’t feel.
    They have feet but can’t walk.
    They have throats but can’t say anything.
Those who make statues of gods will be like them.
    So will all those who trust in them.

All you Israelites, trust in the Lord.
    He helps you like a shield that keeps you safe.
10 Priests of Aaron, trust in the Lord.
    He helps you like a shield that keeps you safe.
11 You who have respect for the Lord, trust in him.
    He helps you like a shield that keeps you safe.

12 The Lord remembers us and will bless us.
    He will bless Israel, his people.
    He will bless the priests of Aaron.
13 The Lord will bless those who have respect for him.
    He will bless important and unimportant people alike.

14 May the Lord give you many children.
    May he give them to you and to your children after you.
15 May the Lord bless you.
    He is the Maker of heaven and earth.

16 The highest heavens belong to the Lord.
    But he has given the earth to human beings.
17 Dead people don’t praise the Lord.
    Those who lie quietly in the grave don’t praise him.
18 But we who are alive praise the Lord,
    both now and forever.

Praise the Lord.
