Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 116

感謝拯救之恩

1我愛耶和華,
因為祂垂聽了我的呼求和禱告。
因為祂垂聽我的祈求,
我一生都要向祂禱告。
死亡的繩索纏繞我,
陰間的恐怖籠罩我,
我被困苦和憂愁淹沒。
於是,我求告耶和華,
說:「耶和華啊,求你拯救我。」
耶和華仁慈、公義,
我們的上帝充滿憐憫。
耶和華保護心地單純的人,
危難之時祂救了我。
我的心啊,再次安寧吧,
因為耶和華恩待你。
祂救我的性命脫離死亡,
止住我眼中的淚水,
使我雙腳免於滑倒。
我要在世上事奉耶和華。
10 我相信,所以才說:
「我受盡了痛苦。」
11 我曾驚恐地說:
「人人都說謊。」
12 我拿什麼報答耶和華賜給我的一切恩惠呢?
13 我要為耶和華的拯救之恩而舉杯稱頌祂的名。
14 我要在耶和華的子民面前還我向祂許的願。

15 耶和華的眼目顧惜祂聖民的死亡。
16 耶和華啊!我是你的僕人,
是你的僕人,是你婢女的兒子。
你除去了我的鎖鏈。
17 我要向你獻上感恩祭,
呼求你的名。
18-19 我要在耶路撒冷,
在耶和華的殿中,
在耶和華的子民面前還我向祂許的願。

你們要讚美耶和華!

The Message

Psalm 116

11-6 I love God because he listened to me,
    listened as I begged for mercy.
He listened so intently
    as I laid out my case before him.
Death stared me in the face,
    hell was hard on my heels.
Up against it, I didn’t know which way to turn;
    then I called out to God for help:
“Please, God!” I cried out.
    “Save my life!”
God is gracious—it is he who makes things right,
    our most compassionate God.
God takes the side of the helpless;
    when I was at the end of my rope, he saved me.

7-8 I said to myself, “Relax and rest.
    God has showered you with blessings.
    Soul, you’ve been rescued from death;
    Eye, you’ve been rescued from tears;
    And you, Foot, were kept from stumbling.”

9-11 I’m striding in the presence of God,
    alive in the land of the living!
I stayed faithful, though bedeviled,
    and despite a ton of bad luck,
Despite giving up on the human race,
    saying, “They’re all liars and cheats.”

12-19 What can I give back to God
    for the blessings he’s poured out on me?
I’ll lift high the cup of salvation—a toast to God!
    I’ll pray in the name of God;
I’ll complete what I promised God I’d do,
    and I’ll do it together with his people.
When they arrive at the gates of death,
    God welcomes those who love him.
Oh, God, here I am, your servant,
    your faithful servant: set me free for your service!
I’m ready to offer the thanksgiving sacrifice
    and pray in the name of God.
I’ll complete what I promised God I’d do,
    and I’ll do it in company with his people,
In the place of worship, in God’s house,
    in Jerusalem, God’s city.
Hallelujah!
