Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 30

感恩的禱告

大衛的詩,作獻殿之歌。

1耶和華啊,我要讚美你,
因為你救我脫離危難,
不讓我的仇敵幸災樂禍。
我的上帝耶和華啊,
我呼求你,你就醫治了我。
耶和華啊,你從陰間把我救出,
沒有讓我落入墳墓。
耶和華忠心的子民啊,
你們要歌頌祂,
讚美祂的聖名。
因為祂的怒氣瞬間消逝,
祂的恩惠卻持續一生。
我們雖然整夜哭泣,
早晨必定歡呼。
我在順境中曾說:
「我永不動搖。」
耶和華啊,
你向我施恩,我便穩固如山;
你掩面不理我,我就驚慌失措。
耶和華啊,我向你呼求,
懇求你憐憫,說:
「耶和華啊,
我被毀滅、落入墳墓有何益處?
我歸於塵土,還能讚美你、
宣揚你的信實嗎?
10 耶和華啊,求你垂聽我的呼求,憐憫我!
耶和華啊,求你幫助我!」
11 你把我的哀哭變成了舞步,
為我脫下悲傷的麻衣,
披上喜樂的外袍,
12 好叫我從心底歌頌你,
不致默然無聲。
我的上帝耶和華啊,
我要永遠向你感恩!

The Message

Psalm 30

A David Psalm

1I give you all the credit, God
    you got me out of that mess,
    you didn’t let my foes gloat.

2-3 God, my God, I yelled for help
    and you put me together.
God, you pulled me out of the grave,
    gave me another chance at life
    when I was down-and-out.

4-5 All you saints! Sing your hearts out to God!
    Thank him to his face!
He gets angry once in a while, but across
    a lifetime there is only love.
The nights of crying your eyes out
    give way to days of laughter.

6-7 When things were going great
    I crowed, “I’ve got it made.
I’m God’s favorite.
    He made me king of the mountain.”
Then you looked the other way
    and I fell to pieces.

8-10 I called out to you, God;
    I laid my case before you:
“Can you sell me for a profit when I’m dead?
    auction me off at a cemetery yard sale?
When I’m ‘dust to dust’ my songs
    and stories of you won’t sell.
So listen! and be kind!
    Help me out of this!”

11-12 You did it: you changed wild lament
    into whirling dance;
You ripped off my black mourning band
    and decked me with wildflowers.
I’m about to burst with song;
    I can’t keep quiet about you.
God, my God,
    I can’t thank you enough.
