詩篇 68

得勝的凱歌

大衛作的詩,交給樂長。

1願上帝起來驅散祂的仇敵,
使恨祂的人四散奔逃。
願你驅散他們,
如風把煙吹散。
願惡人在上帝面前滅亡,
如蠟在火中熔化。
願義人在上帝面前歡欣快樂,
願他們高興歡喜。
要歌頌上帝,
讚美祂的名,
要頌揚駕雲而行的上帝。
祂的名字是耶和華,
要在祂面前歡喜快樂。
住在聖所的上帝是孤兒的父親,寡婦的保護者。
祂使孤苦者有家,
讓被囚者歡然脫離牢籠。
但叛逆者要住在乾旱之地。
上帝啊,
你曾帶領你的子民走過荒野。(細拉)
那時,在西奈山的上帝面前,
在以色列的上帝面前,
大地震動,諸天降雨。

上帝啊,你降下沛雨,
滋潤你乾旱的產業——以色列,
10 讓你的子民得以安居在那裡。
上帝啊,
你滿懷恩慈地供養窮苦人。
11 主下達命令,
成群的婦女便奔相走告:
12 「眾王和他們的軍隊逃走了,逃走了!」
以色列的婦女都在分戰利品。
13 即使羊圈裡的看羊人也披金戴銀,
就像鴿子鍍銀的翅膀和金光閃閃的羽毛。
14 全能的上帝驅散了眾王,
勢如大雪灑落在撒們。
15 巴珊的山巍峨雄壯,群峰聳立。
16 崇山峻嶺啊,
你們為何嫉妒地盯著上帝選為居所的山,
耶和華永遠居住的地方呢?
17 上帝帶著千千萬萬的戰車從西奈山來到祂的聖所。
18 你升上高天時,
帶著許多俘虜;
你接受了眾人的禮物,
甚至叛逆者的禮物。
耶和華上帝就住在那裡。
19 要稱頌主,
稱頌我們的救主上帝,
祂天天背負我們的重擔。(細拉)

20 我們的上帝是拯救的上帝,
主耶和華救我們脫離死亡。
21 上帝必打碎仇敵的頭顱,
敲破怙惡不悛者的腦袋。
22 主說:
「我要把他們從巴珊帶回來,
從深海帶回來,
23 好讓你們的腳從他們的血泊中踩過,
你們的狗也可以吃他們的肉。」
24 上帝啊,你的隊伍已經出現;
我的上帝,我的王啊,
你的隊伍進了聖所,
25 歌唱的在前,奏樂的殿後,
搖手鼓的少女居中。
26 要在大會中讚美上帝,
以色列的會眾都要讚美耶和華。
27 最小的便雅憫支派在前領路,
後面跟著大群的猶大首領,
還有西布倫和拿弗他利的首領。
28 上帝啊,求你施展你的權能;
上帝啊,求你像以前一樣為我們彰顯你的力量。
29 君王都帶著禮物來到你耶路撒冷的聖殿。
30 求你斥責那蘆葦中的野獸,
斥責成群的公牛和列邦的牛犢,
使他們俯首獻上貢銀。
求你驅散好戰的列邦。
31 埃及的使節來朝見,
古實也要歸降上帝。
32 世上的列國啊,
要向上帝歌唱,
你們要歌頌主,
33 歌頌凌駕在萬古穹蒼之上的主。
聽啊,祂聲如雷鳴。
34 你們要傳揚上帝的大能,
祂的威榮普照以色列,
祂的權能彰顯於穹蒼。
35 上帝啊,你在聖所中令人敬畏。
以色列的上帝把力量和權能賜給祂的子民。
上帝當受稱頌!

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 68

Psalm 68

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

May God rise up and scatter his enemies.
    May they turn and run away from him.
    May you, God, blow them away like smoke.
As fire melts wax,
    so may God destroy sinful people.
But may those who do what is right be glad
    and filled with joy when they are with him.
    May they be happy and joyful.

Sing to God, sing praise to his name.
    Lift up a song to the God who rides on the clouds.
    Be glad when you are with him.
    His name is the Lord.
God is in his holy temple.
    He is a father to children whose fathers have died.
    He takes care of women whose husbands have died.
God gives lonely people a family.
    He sets prisoners free, and they go out singing.
But those who refuse to obey him
    live in a land that is baked by the sun.

God, you led your people out.
    You marched through the desert.
The ground shook
    when you, the God of Sinai, appeared.
The heavens poured down rain
    when you, the God of Israel, appeared.
God, you gave us plenty of rain.
    You renewed your worn-out land.
10 God, your people made their homes in it.
    From all your riches, you provided for those who were poor.

11 The Lord gives the message.
    The women who make it known are a huge group.
12 They said, “Kings and armies are running away.
    The women at home are dividing up
    the things the army took from their enemies.
13 Even while the soldiers sleep near the sheep pens,
    God wins the battle for them.
He gives the enemy’s silver and gold
    to Israel, his dove.”
14 The Mighty One has scattered the kings around the land.
    It was like snow falling on Mount Zalmon.

15 Mount Bashan is a majestic mountain.
    Mount Bashan is a very rocky mountain.
16 Why are you jealous of Mount Zion, you rocky mountain?
    That’s where God chooses to rule.
    That’s where the Lord himself will live forever.
17 God has come with tens of thousands of his chariots.
    He has come with thousands and thousands of them.
The Lord has come from Mount Sinai.
    He has entered his holy place.
18 When he went up to his place on high,
    he took many prisoners.
He received gifts from people,
    even from those who refused to obey him.
    The Lord God went up to live on Mount Zion.

19 Give praise to the Lord. Give praise to God our Savior.
    He carries our heavy loads day after day.
20 Our God is a God who saves.
    He is the King and the Lord. He saves us from death.

21 God will certainly smash the heads of his enemies.
    He will break the hairy heads of those who keep on sinning.
22 The Lord says, “I will bring your enemies from Bashan.
    I will bring them up from the bottom of the sea.
23 Then your feet can wade in their blood.
    The tongues of your dogs can lick up all the blood they want.”

24 God, those who worship you come marching into view.
    My God and King, those who follow you have entered the sacred tent.
25 The singers are walking in front.
    Next come the musicians.
    Young women playing tambourines are with them.
26 The leaders sing, “Praise God among all those who worship him.
    Praise the Lord in the community of Israel.”
27 The little tribe of Benjamin leads the worshipers.
    Next comes the great crowd of Judah’s princes.
    Then come the princes of Zebulun and the princes of Naphtali.

28 God, show us your power.
    Show us your strength.
    God, do as you have done before.
29 Do it from your temple at Jerusalem,
    where kings will bring you gifts.
30 Give a strong warning to Egypt, that beast among the tall grass.
    It is like a herd of bulls among the calves.
May that beast bow down before you with gifts of silver.
    Scatter the nations who like to make war.
31 Messengers will come from Egypt.
    The people of Cush will be quick to bring gifts to you.

32 Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth.
    Sing praise to the Lord.
33 He rides across the highest places in heaven.
He rides across the ancient skies above.
    He thunders with his mighty voice.
34 Tell how powerful God is.
    He rules as king over Israel.
    The skies show how powerful he is.
35 How wonderful is God in his holy place!
    The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people.

Give praise to God!
