詩篇 135

讚美之歌

11-2 你們要讚美耶和華!
讚美祂的名!
耶和華的僕人啊,
在耶和華的殿中,
在我們上帝的院宇中事奉的人啊,
你們要讚美祂!
你們要讚美耶和華,
因為祂是美善的;
你們要歌頌祂的名,
因為祂的名美好無比。
祂揀選雅各做祂的子民,
揀選以色列作祂的產業。
我知道耶和華偉大,
我們的主超越一切神明。
耶和華在天上、地下、海洋、
深淵按自己的旨意行事。
祂使雲霧從地極上升,
發出電光,帶來雨水,
從祂的倉庫帶出風來。

祂擊殺了埃及人的長子和頭胎的牲畜。
祂在埃及行神蹟奇事,
懲罰法老和他的一切臣僕。
10 祂毀滅列國,
殺戮強大的君王:
11 亞摩利王西宏、巴珊王噩和迦南所有的君王。
12 祂把這些國家的土地賜給祂的以色列子民,
作為他們的產業。
13 耶和華啊,
你的名永遠長存,
你的威名傳到萬代。
14 因為耶和華必為祂的子民伸冤,
憐憫祂的僕人。

15 外族人的神像是人用金銀造的。
16 它們有口不能說,有眼不能看,
17 有耳不能聽,口中毫無氣息。
18 那些製造它們、信靠它們的人也會和它們一樣。
19 以色列人啊,
你們要稱頌耶和華!
亞倫的子孫啊,
你們要稱頌耶和華!
20 利未的子孫啊,
你們要稱頌耶和華!
你們敬畏耶和華的人都要稱頌祂![a]
21 要讚美錫安的耶和華,
讚美住在耶路撒冷的耶和華。
你們要讚美耶和華!

The Message

Psalm 135

11-4 Hallelujah!
Praise the name of God,
    praise the works of God.
All you priests on duty in God’s temple,
    serving in the sacred halls of our God,
Shout “Hallelujah!” because God’s so good,
    sing anthems to his beautiful name.
And why? Because God chose Jacob,
    embraced Israel as a prize possession.

5-12 I, too, give witness to the greatness of God,
    our Lord, high above all other gods.
He does just as he pleases—
    however, wherever, whenever.
He makes the weather—clouds and thunder,
    lightning and rain, wind pouring out of the north.
He struck down the Egyptian firstborn,
    both human and animal firstborn.
He made Egypt sit up and take notice,
    confronted Pharaoh and his servants with miracles.
Yes, he struck down great nations,
    he slew mighty kings—
Sihon king of the Amorites, also Og of Bashan—
    every last one of the Canaanite kings!
Then he turned their land over to Israel,
    a gift of good land to his people.

13-18 God, your name is eternal,
    God, you’ll never be out-of-date.
God stands up for his people,
    God holds the hands of his people.
The gods of the godless nations are mere trinkets,
    made for quick sale in the markets:
Chiseled mouths that can’t talk,
    painted eyes that can’t see,
Carved ears that can’t hear—
    dead wood! cold metal!
Those who make and trust them
    become like them.

19-21 Family of Israel, bless God!
    Family of Aaron, bless God!
Family of Levi, bless God!
    You who fear God, bless God!
Oh, blessed be God of Zion,
    First Citizen of Jerusalem!
Hallelujah!
