詩篇 144

祈求拯救與豐裕

大衛的詩。

1耶和華——我的磐石當受稱頌,
祂使我能爭善戰。
祂是我慈愛的上帝,
我的堡壘,我的避難所,
我的拯救者,我的盾牌,
我投靠祂。
祂使列國臣服於我。

耶和華啊,
人算什麼,你竟顧念他?
世人算什麼,你竟眷顧他?
因為人不過像一口氣,
他的年日不過像影子轉眼消逝。
耶和華啊,
求你打開天門,親自降臨;
求你觸摸群山,使群山冒煙。
求你發出閃電驅散敵人,
求你射出利箭擊潰他們。
求你從天上伸手從驚濤駭浪中拯救我,
從外族人手中拯救我。
他們滿口謊言,
起誓也心懷詭詐。
上帝啊,我要向你唱新歌,
用十弦琴歌頌你。
10 你使君王得勝,
救你的僕人大衛逃離刀劍的殺戮。
11 求你從外族人手中拯救我,
他們滿口謊言,
起誓也心懷詭詐。

12 願我們的兒子年輕時像茁壯的樹木,

我們的女兒像宮殿中精雕的柱子。
13 願我們的倉庫堆滿各樣的穀物,
我們的羊在田野繁衍眾多,
成千上萬。
14 願我們的牲口馱滿貨物[a]
我們的城牆固若金湯,
無人被擄,街上沒有哭叫聲。
15 生活在這種光景裡的人有福了!
尊耶和華為上帝的人有福了!

Psalm 144

Prayer for Rescue and Prosperity.

A Psalm of David.

1Blessed be the Lord, my rock,
Who trains my hands for war,
And my fingers for battle;
My lovingkindness and my fortress,
My stronghold and my deliverer,
My shield and He in whom I take refuge,
Who subdues [a]my people under me.
O Lord, what is man, that You take knowledge of him?
Or the son of man, that You think of him?
Man is like a mere breath;
His days are like a passing shadow.

Bow Your heavens, O Lord, and come down;
Touch the mountains, that they may smoke.
Flash forth lightning and scatter them;
Send out Your arrows and confuse them.
Stretch forth Your hand from on high;
Rescue me and deliver me out of great waters,
Out of the hand of aliens
Whose mouths speak deceit,
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

I will sing a new song to You, O God;
Upon a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You,
10 Who gives salvation to kings,
Who rescues David His servant from the evil sword.
11 Rescue me and deliver me out of the hand of aliens,
Whose mouth speaks deceit
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

12 Let our sons in their youth be as grown-up plants,
And our daughters as corner pillars [b]fashioned as for a palace;
13 Let our garners be full, furnishing every kind of produce,
And our flocks bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our [c]fields;
14 Let our cattle [d]bear
Without [e]mishap and without [f]loss,
Let there be no outcry in our streets!
15 How blessed are the people who are so situated;
How blessed are the people whose God is the Lord!
