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!

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 135

Psalm 135

Praise the Lord.

Praise the name of the Lord.
    You who serve the Lord, praise him.
You who serve in the house of the Lord, praise him.
    You who serve in the courtyards of the temple of our God, praise him.

Praise the Lord, because he is good.
    Sing praise to his name, because that is pleasant.
The Lord has chosen the people of Jacob to be his own.
    He has chosen Israel to be his special treasure.

I know that the Lord is great.
    I know that our Lord is greater than all gods.
The Lord does anything he wants to do
    in the heavens and on the earth.
    He does it even in the deepest parts of the oceans.
He makes clouds rise from one end of the earth to the other.
    He sends lightning with the rain.
    He brings the wind out of his storerooms.

He killed the oldest son of each family in Egypt.
    He struck down the oldest males that were born to people and animals.
He did miraculous signs in Egypt.
    He did wonders against Pharaoh and everyone who served him.
10 He destroyed many nations.
    He killed mighty kings.
11 He killed Sihon, the king of the Amorites,
    and Og, the king of Bashan.
    He killed all the kings of Canaan.
12 He gave their land as a gift
    to his people Israel.

13 Lord, your name continues forever.
    Lord, your fame will last for all time to come.
14 When the Lord hands down his sentence, it will be in his people’s favor.
    He will show deep concern for those who serve him.

15 The statues of the nations’ gods are made out of silver and gold.
    They are made by human hands.
16 They have mouths but can’t speak.
    They have eyes but can’t see.
17 They have ears but can’t hear.
    They have mouths but can’t breathe.
18 Those who make statues of gods will be like them.
    So will all those who trust in them.

19 People of Israel, praise the Lord.
    Priests of Aaron, praise the Lord.
20 Tribe of Levi, praise the Lord.
    You who have respect for the Lord, praise him.
21 Give praise to the Lord in Zion.
    Give praise to the God who lives in Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord.
