The Message

Psalm 95

11-2 Come, let’s shout praises to God,
    raise the roof for the Rock who saved us!
Let’s march into his presence singing praises,
    lifting the rafters with our hymns!

3-5 And why? Because God is the best,
    High King over all the gods.
In one hand he holds deep caves and caverns,
    in the other hand grasps the high mountains.
He made Ocean—he owns it!
    His hands sculpted Earth!

6-7 So come, let us worship: bow before him,
    on your knees before God, who made us!
Oh yes, he’s our God,
    and we’re the people he pastures, the flock he feeds.

7-11 Drop everything and listen, listen as he speaks:
    “Don’t turn a deaf ear as in the Bitter Uprising,
As on the day of the Wilderness Test,
    when your ancestors turned and put me to the test.
For forty years they watched me at work among them,
    as over and over they tried my patience.
And I was provoked—oh, was I provoked!
    ‘Can’t they keep their minds on God for five minutes?
    Do they simply refuse to walk down my road?’
Exasperated, I exploded,
    ‘They’ll never get where they’re headed,
    never be able to sit down and rest.’”

诗篇 95

赞美上帝之歌

1来吧,让我们向耶和华歌唱,
向拯救我们的磐石欢呼。
让我们怀着感恩的心来到祂面前,
向祂高唱赞美诗。
因为耶和华是伟大的上帝,
是众神明之上的大君王。
祂掌管地的深处,
祂拥有山的高峰。
海洋属于祂,是祂创造的,
陆地也是祂造的。
来吧,让我们俯伏敬拜,
在创造我们的耶和华面前跪下。
因为祂是我们的上帝,
我们是祂照管的子民,
是祂牧放的羊群。

你们今日若听见祂的声音,
不可像你们祖先在米利巴,
在旷野的玛撒那样心里顽固。
耶和华说:“虽然他们见过我的作为,
却仍然试探我。
10 所以,我憎恶他们四十年之久,
我说,‘他们偏离正路,不遵行我的命令。’
11 因此我在怒中起誓说,
‘他们绝不可进入我的安息!’”
