The Message

Psalm 146

11-2 Hallelujah!
    O my soul, praise God!
All my life long I’ll praise God,
    singing songs to my God as long as I live.

3-9 Don’t put your life in the hands of experts
    who know nothing of life, of salvation life.
Mere humans don’t have what it takes;
    when they die, their projects die with them.
Instead, get help from the God of Jacob,
    put your hope in God and know real blessing!
God made sky and soil,
    sea and all the fish in it.
He always does what he says—
    he defends the wronged,
    he feeds the hungry.
God frees prisoners—
    he gives sight to the blind,
    he lifts up the fallen.
God loves good people, protects strangers,
    takes the side of orphans and widows,
    but makes short work of the wicked.

10 God’s in charge—always.
    Zion’s God is God for good!
    Hallelujah!

詩篇 146

讚美上帝的幫助

1你們要讚美耶和華!
我的心啊,你要讚美耶和華。
我要一生讚美耶和華,
我一息尚存都要讚美祂。
你們不要倚靠權貴,
不要倚靠世人,
他們救不了你們。
他們氣息一斷,便歸回塵土,
他們的打算轉眼成空。
蒙雅各的上帝相助、仰望上帝耶和華的人有福了!
耶和華創造了天、地、海和其中的萬物,
祂永遠信實可靠。
祂為受壓制的人伸冤,
賜食物給饑餓的人,
使被囚者得自由。
耶和華叫瞎子看見,
扶持被重擔所壓的人,
祂喜愛義人。
耶和華保護寄居異地的人,
看顧孤兒寡婦,
祂挫敗惡人的陰謀詭計。
10 耶和華永遠掌權。
錫安啊,
你的上帝要世世代代做王。
你們要讚美耶和華!
