詩篇 65

讚美和感恩

大衛作的詩,交給樂長。

1上帝啊,
人們在錫安讚美你,
向你履行誓言。
你垂聽禱告,
世人都來到你面前。
雖然我們深陷罪中,
你卻赦免了我們。
蒙你揀選、
能住在你聖所的人有福了!
我們在你美好的居所,
你聖潔的殿中心滿意足。
拯救我們的上帝啊,
你憑公義、行可畏之事來應允我們的祈求。
你是普天下的盼望。
你充滿力量,以大能創造群山,
又平息怒海狂濤,
止息列邦的喧囂。
你奇妙的作為使遠在地極的人心生敬畏,
你使日出之地和日落之處都傳來歡呼聲。
你眷顧大地,降下沛雨,
使土地肥沃富饒。
上帝啊,你使江河湧流不息,
澆灌大地,為世人預備五穀。
10 你降下甘霖,澆透壟溝,
滋潤壟背,使地鬆軟、
長出莊稼。
11 你賜下豐年福月,
你的腳蹤恩澤滿溢。
12 曠野的草地生機盎然,
山嶺間充滿歡樂,
13 草場遍佈羊群,
谷中長滿莊稼,
處處歡歌笑語。

The Message

Psalm 65

A David Psalm

11-2 Silence is praise to you,
    Zion-dwelling God,
And also obedience.
    You hear the prayer in it all.

2-8 We all arrive at your doorstep sooner
    or later, loaded with guilt,
Our sins too much for us—
    but you get rid of them once and for all.
Blessed are the chosen! Blessed the guest
    at home in your place!
We expect our fill of good things
    in your house, your heavenly manse.
All your salvation wonders
    are on display in your trophy room.
Earth-Tamer, Ocean-Pourer,
    Mountain-Maker, Hill-Dresser,
Muzzler of sea storm and wave crash,
    of mobs in noisy riot—
Far and wide they’ll come to a stop,
    they’ll stare in awe, in wonder.
Dawn and dusk take turns
    calling, “Come and worship.”

9-13 Oh, visit the earth,
    ask her to join the dance!
Deck her out in spring showers,
    fill the God-River with living water.
Paint the wheat fields golden.
    Creation was made for this!
Drench the plowed fields,
    soak the dirt clods
With rainfall as harrow and rake
    bring her to blossom and fruit.
Snow-crown the peaks with splendor,
    scatter rose petals down your paths,
All through the wild meadows, rose petals.
    Set the hills to dancing,
Dress the canyon walls with live sheep,
    a drape of flax across the valleys.
Let them shout, and shout, and shout!
    Oh, oh, let them sing!
