詩篇 81

歌頌上帝的恩惠

亞薩的詩,交給樂長,用迦特樂器。

1要歌頌賜我們力量的上帝,
向雅各的上帝歡呼。
要唱詩,擊鼓,彈起琴瑟。
要在我們過節的朔日和望日[a]吹響號角。
這是以色列的律例,
是雅各的上帝所定的法令。
上帝攻擊埃及的時候,
為約瑟立下此法度。
我在那裡聽見陌生的聲音說:
「我卸下了你肩上的重擔,
使你的雙手不再做苦工,
你在苦難中向我呼求,
我就拯救了你,
從雷聲隆隆的密雲中應允了你。
我在米利巴泉邊考驗你。(細拉)
我的子民啊,
要聽我的警告。
以色列人啊,
但願你們聽從我的話。
你們斷不可供奉別的神明,
也不可向外族的神明下拜,
10 我是你們的上帝耶和華,
曾把你們帶出埃及。
張開你們的口吧,
我必使你們飽足。
11 我的子民卻不肯聽我的話,
以色列不願意順從我。
12 因此我就任憑他們頑固不化,
為所欲為。
13 但願我的子民肯聽從我,
以色列人肯遵行我的道。
14 那時,我必迅速制伏他們的敵人,
伸手攻擊他們的仇敵。
15 憎惡我的人要在我面前屈膝投降,永遠沉淪。
16 我要以上好的麥子供養我的子民,
讓他們飽享磐石間的蜂蜜。」

The Message

Psalm 81

An Asaph Psalm

11-5 A song to our strong God!
    a shout to the God of Jacob!
Anthems from the choir, music from the band,
    sweet sounds from lute and harp,
Trumpets and trombones and horns:
    it’s festival day, a feast to God!
A day decreed by God,
    solemnly ordered by the God of Jacob.
He commanded Joseph to keep this day
    so we’d never forget what he did in Egypt.

I hear this most gentle whisper from One
I never guessed would speak to me:

6-7 “I took the world off your shoulders,
    freed you from a life of hard labor.
You called to me in your pain;
    I got you out of a bad place.
I answered you from where the thunder hides,
    I proved you at Meribah Fountain.

8-10 “Listen, dear ones—get this straight;
    O Israel, don’t take this lightly.
Don’t take up with strange gods,
    don’t worship the latest in gods.
I’m God, your God, the very God
    who rescued you from doom in Egypt,
Then fed you all you could eat,
    filled your hungry stomachs.

11-12 “But my people didn’t listen,
    Israel paid no attention;
So I let go of the reins and told them, ‘Run!
    Do it your own way!’

13-16 “Oh, dear people, will you listen to me now?
    Israel, will you follow my map?
I’ll make short work of your enemies,
    give your foes the back of my hand.
I’ll send the God-haters cringing like dogs,
    never to be heard from again.
You’ll feast on my fresh-baked bread
    spread with butter and rock-pure honey.”
