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!

Psalm 40

Psalm 40[a]

For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

I waited patiently for the Lord;
    he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
    out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
    and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
    and put their trust in him.

Blessed is the one
    who trusts in the Lord,
who does not look to the proud,
    to those who turn aside to false gods.[b]
Many, Lord my God,
    are the wonders you have done,
    the things you planned for us.
None can compare with you;
    were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
    they would be too many to declare.

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire –
    but my ears you have opened;[c] –
    burnt offerings and sin offerings[d] you did not require.
Then I said, ‘Here I am, I have come –
    it is written about me in the scroll.[e]
I desire to do your will, my God;
    your law is within my heart.’

I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly;
    I do not seal my lips, Lord,
    as you know.
10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart;
    I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help.
I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness
    from the great assembly.

11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, Lord;
    may your love and faithfulness always protect me.
12 For troubles without number surround me;
    my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.
They are more than the hairs of my head,
    and my heart fails within me.
13 Be pleased to save me, Lord;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.

14 May all who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.
15 May those who say to me, ‘Aha! Aha!’
    be appalled at their own shame.
16 But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
    ‘The Lord is great!’

17 But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    may the Lord think of me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
    you are my God, do not delay.
