King James Version

Psalm 89

1I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.

For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.

I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,

Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.

And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Lord: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.

For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord?

God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.

O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?

Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.

10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.

11 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.

12 The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.

13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.

14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.

16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

17 For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.

18 For the Lord is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.

19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:

21 With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.

22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.

24 But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.

25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.

26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.

27 Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.

28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.

29 His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;

31 If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;

32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.

34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.

36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.

37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.

38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.

39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.

40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin.

41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to his neighbours.

42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.

43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle.

44 Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground.

45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.

46 How long, Lord? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?

47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?

48 What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.

49 Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses, which thou swarest unto David in thy truth?

50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; how I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty people;

51 Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O Lord; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.

52 Blessed be the Lord for evermore. Amen, and Amen.

詩篇 89

永遠配受稱頌的上帝

以斯拉人以探的訓誨詩。

1我要永遠稱頌耶和華的慈愛!
我的口要傳揚你的信實直到萬代。
我要讓人知道:
你的慈愛存到永遠,
你的信實與天同存。
你曾說:
「我與我所揀選的人立了約,
向我的僕人大衛起了誓,
『我要使你的後裔永遠坐在寶座上,世代為王。』」(細拉)
耶和華啊,
諸天要頌揚你的奇妙,
眾聖者要讚美你的信實。
天上有誰能與耶和華相比,
眾天使中誰能像祂?
祂在眾聖者的會中大受敬畏,
祂的威嚴無與倫比。
萬軍之上帝耶和華啊,
誰能像你能力偉大,信實無比?
你掌管洶湧的大海,
平息驚濤駭浪。
10 你擊碎海怪[a]
以大能的臂膀驅散仇敵。
11 天地都屬於你,
世界和其中的一切都是你造的。
12 你創造了南方和北方,
他泊山和黑門山都向你歡呼。
13 你有大能的臂膀,
雙手充滿力量。
14 你的寶座以公平和正義為根基,
你以慈愛和信實為先鋒。
15 耶和華啊,
懂得向你歡呼的人有福了,
他們走在你的榮光之中。
16 他們因你的名終日歡欣,
因你的公義而雀躍。
17 你是他們的力量和榮耀,
你的恩惠使我們充滿力量。
18 耶和華賜下保護我們的盾牌,
我們的王屬於以色列的聖者。
19 你曾在異象中對你忠心的子民說:
「我已把力量賜給一位勇士,
已擢升我在民中揀選的人。
20 我找到了我的僕人大衛,
用我的聖油膏立他。
21 我的手必扶持他,
我的臂膀必加給他力量。
22 仇敵勝不過他,
惡人不能欺壓他。
23 我要當著他的面擊垮他的敵人,
打倒恨他的人。
24 我要以信實和慈愛待他,
他必因我的名而充滿力量。
25 我要使他左手掌管大海,
右手統治江河。
26 他要向我高呼,
『你是我的父親,我的上帝,
拯救我的磐石。』
27 我要立他為我的長子,
使他做天下至尊的君王。
28 我要永遠用慈愛待他,
我與他立的約永不更改。
29 我要使他的後裔永無窮盡,
讓他的王位與天同存。
30 如果他的後代背棄我的律法,
不遵行我的典章,
31 觸犯我的律例,
不守我的誡命,
32 我就會因他們的罪用杖懲罰他們,
用鞭子責打他們。
33 但我不會收回我的慈愛,
也不會背棄我的信實。
34 我必不毀約,也不食言。
35 因我曾憑自己的聖潔向大衛起誓,
我絕無謊言。
36 他的後裔必永無窮盡,
他的王位必在我面前如日長存,
37 又如天上亙古不變的月亮,
永遠堅立。」(細拉)
38 如今,你對你所膏立的王大發怒氣,丟棄了他。
39 你廢棄與他所立的約,
把他的冠冕扔在塵土中。
40 你攻破了他的城牆,
使他的堅壘淪為廢墟。
41 路人都趁機劫掠他的財物,
鄰居都嘲笑他。
42 你助長了他敵人的勢力,
使敵人洋洋得意。
43 你使他的刀劍失去鋒芒,
你使他敗退沙場。
44 你使他的威榮盡失,
王位傾覆。
45 你使他未老先衰,
滿面羞愧。(細拉)
46 耶和華啊,
你隱藏自己要到何時呢?
要到永遠嗎?
你的怒火要燒到何時呢?
47 願你顧念我的生命何其短暫!
你創造的世人何其虛幻!
48 誰能長生不死?
誰能救自己脫離死亡的權勢呢?(細拉)

49 主啊,你從前憑自己的信實向大衛應許的慈愛在哪裡呢?
50 主啊,求你顧念你僕人——我所受的羞辱,
我心中如何忍受列國的嘲笑。
51 耶和華啊,
你的仇敵嘲笑你所膏立的王,
他們嘲笑他的一舉一動。
52 耶和華永遠當受稱頌。
阿們!阿們!
