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。」

Psalm 81

Psalm 81[a]

For the director of music. According to gittith.[b] Of Asaph.

Sing for joy to God our strength;
    shout aloud to the God of Jacob!
Begin the music, strike the tambourine,
    play the melodious harp and lyre.

Sound the ram’s horn at the New Moon,
    and when the moon is full, on the day of our Feast;
this is a decree for Israel,
    an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
When God went out against Egypt,
    he established it as a statute for Joseph.

I heard an unknown voice say:

‘I removed the burden from their shoulders;
    their hands were set free from the basket.
In your distress you called and I rescued you,
    I answered you out of a thundercloud;
    I tested you at the waters of Meribah.[c]
Hear me, my people, and I will warn you –
    if you would only listen to me, Israel!
You shall have no foreign god among you;
    you shall not worship any god other than me.
10 I am the Lord your God,
    who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.

11 ‘But my people would not listen to me;
    Israel would not submit to me.
12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts
    to follow their own devices.

13 ‘If my people would only listen to me,
    if Israel would only follow my ways,
14 how quickly I would subdue their enemies
    and turn my hand against their foes!
15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe before him,
    and their punishment would last for ever.
16 But you would be fed with the finest of wheat;
    with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.’
