Psalm 107

BOOK 5

The Lord Delivers Men from Manifold Troubles.

1Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary
And gathered from the lands,
From the east and from the west,
From the north and from the [a]south.

They wandered in the wilderness in a [b]desert region;
They did not find a way to [c]an inhabited city.
They were hungry [d]and thirsty;
Their soul fainted within them.
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He delivered them out of their distresses.
He led them also by a [e]straight way,
To go to [f]an inhabited city.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His [g]wonders to the sons of men!
For He has satisfied the [h]thirsty soul,
And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.

10 There were those who dwelt in darkness and in the shadow of death,
Prisoners in [i]misery and [j]chains,
11 Because they had rebelled against the words of God
And spurned the counsel of the Most High.
12 Therefore He humbled their heart with labor;
They stumbled and there was none to help.
13 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He saved them out of their distresses.
14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death
And broke their bands apart.
15 Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His [k]wonders to the sons of men!
16 For He has shattered gates of bronze
And cut bars of iron asunder.

17 Fools, because of [l]their rebellious way,
And because of their iniquities, were afflicted.
18 Their soul abhorred all kinds of food,
And they drew near to the gates of death.
19 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He saved them out of their distresses.
20 He sent His word and healed them,
And delivered them from their [m]destructions.
21 Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His [n]wonders to the sons of men!
22 Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
And tell of His works with joyful singing.

23 Those who go down to the sea in ships,
Who do business on great waters;
24 They have seen the works of the Lord,
And His [o]wonders in the deep.
25 For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind,
Which lifted up the waves [p]of the sea.
26 They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths;
Their soul melted away in their misery.
27 They reeled and staggered like a drunken man,
And [q]were at their wits’ end.
28 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
And He brought them out of their distresses.
29 He caused the storm to be still,
So that the waves [r]of the sea were hushed.
30 Then they were glad because they were quiet,
So He guided them to their desired haven.
31 Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,
And for His [s]wonders to the sons of men!
32 Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people,
And praise Him at the seat of the elders.

33 He [t]changes rivers into a [u]wilderness
And springs of water into a thirsty ground;
34 A fruitful land into a salt waste,
Because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it.
35 He [v]changes a [w]wilderness into a pool of water
And a dry land into springs of water;
36 And there He makes the hungry to dwell,
So that they may establish [x]an inhabited city,
37 And sow fields and plant vineyards,
And [y]gather a fruitful harvest.
38 Also He blesses them and they multiply greatly,
And He does not let their cattle decrease.

39 When they are diminished and bowed down
Through oppression, misery and sorrow,
40 He pours contempt upon [z]princes
And makes them wander in a pathless waste.
41 But He sets the needy [aa]securely on high away from affliction,
And makes his families like a flock.
42 The upright see it and are glad;
But all unrighteousness shuts its mouth.
43 Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things,
And consider the lovingkindnesses of the Lord.

诗篇 107

卷五:诗篇107—150

称谢上帝的美善

1你们要称谢耶和华,
因为祂是美善的;
祂的慈爱永远长存。
2-3 耶和华救赎的人,
就是祂从敌人手中救赎出来、
从东西南北招聚的人,
都要称谢祂。
他们在旷野中飘泊,居无定所,
又饥又渴,陷入绝境。
他们在危难中呼求耶和华,
祂就拯救他们脱离困境,
带领他们走直路,
到可居住的城邑。
他们当称谢耶和华的慈爱,
称谢祂为世人所行的奇事。
因为祂满足干渴的人,
以美食喂饱饥饿的人。
10 有些人坐在黑暗里,
在死亡的阴影下,
被铁链捆绑,
痛苦不堪。
11 因为他们违背上帝的话,
藐视至高者的旨意,
12 所以上帝用苦役使他们顺服,
他们跌倒也无人扶助。
13 于是,他们在患难中呼求耶和华,
耶和华就拯救他们脱离困境。
14 祂带领他们脱离黑暗和死亡的阴影,
断开他们的锁链。
15 他们当称谢耶和华的慈爱,
称谢祂为世人所行的奇事。
16 因为祂打碎了铜门,
砍断了铁闩。
17 有些人愚顽,
因自己的悖逆和罪恶而受苦,
18 食欲全消,几近死亡。
19 于是,他们在患难中呼求耶和华,
耶和华便拯救他们脱离困境。
20 祂一发令,就医治了他们,
救他们脱离死亡。
21 他们当称谢耶和华的慈爱,
称谢祂为世人所行的奇事。
22 他们当向祂献上感恩祭,
欢然歌颂祂的作为。
23 有些人乘船在汪洋大海上经商,
24 他们看见了耶和华的作为,
看见了祂在深海所行的奇事。
25 祂一声令下,
狂风大作,巨浪滔天。
26 他们的船只忽而被抛向半空,
忽而落入深渊,
他们吓得面无人色,
27 东倒西歪,如同醉汉,
束手无策。
28 于是,他们在患难中呼求耶和华,
耶和华便拯救他们脱离困境。
29 祂使狂风止息,海浪平静。
30 他们因风平浪静而欢喜,
祂带领他们到所向往的港湾。
31 他们当称谢耶和华的慈爱,
称谢祂为世人所行的奇事。
32 他们当在众人面前尊崇祂,
在众首领面前赞美祂。
33 祂使江河变成荒漠,
水泉变成干地,
34 叫沃土变成荒凉的盐碱地,
因为那里的居民邪恶。
35 祂叫荒漠水塘遍布,
使旱地甘泉涌流。
36 祂使饥饿的人住在那里,
建造可安居的城邑,
37 耕种田地,栽植葡萄园,
收成丰硕。
38 祂赐福给他们,
使他们人丁兴旺,
牲口有增无减。
39 后来他们在压迫、患难和痛苦的煎熬下人口减少,
地位卑下。
40 祂使贵族蒙羞受辱,
漂流在荒芜之地。
41 但祂搭救贫苦的人脱离苦难,
使他们家族兴旺,多如羊群。
42 正直人看见就欢喜,
邪恶人都哑口无言。
43 有智慧的人都当留心这些事,
思想耶和华的慈爱。
