Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 8

上帝的榮耀與人的尊貴

大衛的詩,交給樂長,迦特樂器伴奏。

1我們的主耶和華啊,
你的名在地上何其尊貴!
你的榮耀充滿諸天。
你使孩童和嬰兒的口發出頌讚,
好叫你的仇敵啞口無言。
我觀看你指頭創造的穹蒼和你擺列的月亮星辰,
人算什麼,你竟顧念他!
世人算什麼,你竟眷顧他!
你叫他比天使低微一點,
賜他榮耀和尊貴作冠冕。
你派他管理你親手造的萬物,
使萬物降服在他腳下:
牛羊、田野的獸、
空中的鳥、海裡的魚及其他水族。
我們的主耶和華啊,
你的名在地上何其尊貴!

The Message

Psalm 8

A David Psalm

1God, brilliant Lord,
    yours is a household name.

Nursing infants gurgle choruses about you;
    toddlers shout the songs
That drown out enemy talk,
    and silence atheist babble.

3-4 I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous,
    your handmade sky-jewelry,
Moon and stars mounted in their settings.
    Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,
Why do you bother with us?
    Why take a second look our way?

5-8 Yet we’ve so narrowly missed being gods,
    bright with Eden’s dawn light.
You put us in charge of your handcrafted world,
    repeated to us your Genesis-charge,
Made us lords of sheep and cattle,
    even animals out in the wild,
Birds flying and fish swimming,
    whales singing in the ocean deeps.

God, brilliant Lord,
    your name echoes around the world.
