Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 66

頌讚與感恩

一首詩歌,交給樂長。

1世人啊,你們要向上帝歡呼,
頌讚祂榮耀的名,
讚美祂的榮耀。
要對上帝說:「你的作為令人敬畏!
你的大能使敵人屈膝投降。
普天下都敬拜你,
頌讚你,頌讚你的名。」(細拉)

來吧,看看上帝的作為,
祂為世人行了何等奇妙的事!
祂將滄海變為乾地,
讓百姓步行經過。
讓我們因祂的作為而歡欣吧!
祂以大能永遠掌權,
祂的眼目鑒察列國,
悖逆之徒不可在祂面前妄自尊大。(細拉)

列邦啊,要讚美我們的上帝,
讓歌頌祂的聲音四處飄揚。
祂保全我們的生命,
不讓我們失腳滑倒。
10 上帝啊,你試驗我們,
熬煉我們如熬煉銀子。
11 你讓我們陷入網羅,
把重擔壓在我們的背上。
12 你讓別人騎在我們的頭上。
我們曾經歷水火,
但你帶我們到達豐盛之地。
13 我要帶著燔祭來到你殿中,
履行我向你許的誓言,
14 就是我在危難中許下的誓言。
15 我要獻上肥美的牲畜,
以公綿羊作馨香之祭獻給你,
我要獻上公牛和山羊。(細拉)

16 敬畏上帝的人啊,
你們都來聽吧,
我要告訴你們祂為我所做的事。
17 我曾開口向祂呼求,
揚聲讚美祂。
18 倘若我心中藏匿罪惡,
主必不垂聽我的呼求。
19 然而,上帝聽了我的禱告,
傾聽了我的祈求。
20 上帝當受稱頌!
祂沒有對我的禱告拒而不聽,
也沒有收回祂對我的慈愛。

The Message

Psalm 66

11-4 All together now—applause for God!
    Sing songs to the tune of his glory,
    set glory to the rhythms of his praise.
Say of God, “We’ve never seen anything like him!”
    When your enemies see you in action,
    they slink off like scolded dogs.
The whole earth falls to its knees—
    it worships you, sings to you,
    can’t stop enjoying your name and fame.

5-6 Take a good look at God’s wonders—
    they’ll take your breath away.
He converted sea to dry land;
    travelers crossed the river on foot.
    Now isn’t that cause for a song?

Ever sovereign in his high tower, he keeps
    his eye on the godless nations.
Rebels don’t dare
    raise a finger against him.

8-12 Bless our God, O peoples!
    Give him a thunderous welcome!
Didn’t he set us on the road to life?
    Didn’t he keep us out of the ditch?
He trained us first,
    passed us like silver through refining fires,
Brought us into hardscrabble country,
    pushed us to our very limit,
Road-tested us inside and out,
    took us to hell and back;
Finally he brought us
    to this well-watered place.

13-15 I’m bringing my prizes and presents to your house.
    I’m doing what I said I’d do,
What I solemnly swore I’d do
    that day when I was in so much trouble:
The choicest cuts of meat
    for the sacrificial meal;
Even the fragrance
    of roasted lamb is like a meal!
Or make it an ox
    garnished with goat meat!

16-20 All believers, come here and listen,
    let me tell you what God did for me.
I called out to him with my mouth,
    my tongue shaped the sounds of music.
If I had been cozy with evil,
    the Lord would never have listened.
But he most surely did listen,
    he came on the double when he heard my prayer.
Blessed be God: he didn’t turn a deaf ear,
    he stayed with me, loyal in his love.
