詩篇 40

讚美上帝之歌

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1我曾耐心等候耶和華,
祂傾聽了我的呼求。
祂把我從絕望的深淵拉出來,
救我脫離泥濘沼澤,
把我安置在磐石上,
使我步履穩健。
祂賜給我一首新歌,
一首讚美我們上帝的詩歌。
許多人看見便敬畏、信靠耶和華。
信靠耶和華的人有福了!
他們不隨從驕傲自大、信靠假神的人。
我的上帝耶和華啊,
你行了許多奇事,
為我們定了許多美好的計劃,
誰能與你相比!
你奇妙的作為不可勝數。
祭物和供品非你所悅,
你開通了我的耳朵,
燔祭和贖罪祭非你所要。
於是我說:
「看啊,我來了,
正如經卷上有關我的記載。
我的上帝啊,
我樂意遵行你的旨意,
我銘記你的律法。」
耶和華啊,你知道我在大會中宣揚你的公義,
沒有閉口不言。
10 我述說你的信實和拯救之恩,
沒有把你的公義隱而不宣,
沒有在大會中避而不談你的慈愛和真理。
11 耶和華啊,
求你不要收回你的憐憫,
願你的慈愛和真理時刻守護我!
12 我患難重重,罪惡纏身,
看不到出路。
我的罪過比我的頭髮還多,
我心驚膽戰。
13 耶和華啊,求你拯救我!
耶和華啊,求你快來幫助我!
14 願謀取我性命的人蒙羞受辱!
願喜歡我被害的人狼狽逃竄!
15 願那些哈哈嘲笑我的人羞愧難當!
16 願所有尋求你的人因你而歡喜快樂!
願渴望蒙你拯救的人時常說:
「耶和華當受尊崇!」
17 我貧窮困苦,
但主眷顧我。
我的上帝啊,
你是我的幫助、我的拯救,
求你不要遲延!

King James Version

Psalm 40

1I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest.

10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me: O Lord, make haste to help me.

14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.

15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The Lord be magnified.

17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
