Psalm 118

Psalm 118

Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good.
    His faithful love continues forever.

Let the people of Israel say,
    “His faithful love continues forever.”
Let the priests of Aaron say,
    “His faithful love continues forever.”
Let those who have respect for the Lord say,
    “His faithful love continues forever.”

When I was in great trouble, I cried out to the Lord.
    He answered me and set me free from my trouble.
The Lord is with me. I will not be afraid.
    What can mere human beings do to me?
The Lord is with me. He helps me.
    I win the battle over my enemies.

It is better to go to the Lord for safety
    than to trust in mere human beings.
It is better to go to the Lord for safety
    than to trust in human leaders.

10 The nations were all around me.
    But by the Lord’s power I destroyed them.
11 They were around me on every side.
    But by the Lord’s power I destroyed them.
12 They attacked me like swarms of bees.
    But they were burned up as quickly as thorns in a fire.
    By the Lord’s power I destroyed them.

13 I was pushed back and about to be killed.
    But the Lord helped me.
14 The Lord gives me strength and makes me secure.
    He has saved me.

15 Shouts of joy ring out in the tents of godly people.
    They praise him for his help in battle.
They shout, “The Lord’s powerful right hand has done mighty things!
16     The Lord’s powerful right hand has won the battle!
    The Lord’s powerful right hand has done mighty things!”

17 I will not die but live.
    I will talk about what the Lord has done.
18 The Lord has really punished me.
    But he didn’t let me die.

19 Open for me the gates where the godly can go in.
    I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord.
    Only those who do what is right can go through it.
21 Lord, I will give thanks to you, because you answered me.
    You have saved me.

22 The stone the builders didn’t accept
    has become the most important stone of all.
23 The Lord has done it.
    It is wonderful in our eyes.
24 The Lord has done it on this day.
    Let us be joyful today and be glad.

25 Lord, save us.
    Lord, give us success.
26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.
    From the temple of the Lord we bless you.
27 The Lord is God.
    He has been good to us.
Take branches in your hands. Join in the march on the day of the feast.
    March up to the corners of the altar.

28 You are my God, and I will praise you.
    You are my God, and I will honor you.

29 Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good.
    His faithful love continues forever.

诗篇 118

为胜利而感恩

1你们要称谢耶和华,
因为祂是美善的,
祂的慈爱永远长存。
愿以色列人说:
“祂的慈爱永远长存。”
愿亚伦家说:
“祂的慈爱永远长存。”
愿那些敬畏耶和华的人说:
“祂的慈爱永远长存。”
我在苦难中求告耶和华,
祂就答应我,救我脱离困境。
有耶和华与我同在,
我必不惧怕,
人能把我怎么样?
耶和华与我同在,帮助我,
我必看见那些恨我的人一败涂地。
投靠耶和华胜过倚靠人。
投靠耶和华胜过倚靠权贵。
10 列国围住我,
但我靠着耶和华消灭了他们。
11 他们四面围住我,
但我靠着耶和华消灭了他们。
12 他们如蜜蜂围住我,
然而他们必像燃烧的荆棘,
转瞬消逝;
我靠着耶和华必消灭他们。
13 我受到猛烈的攻击,
几乎要倒下了,
但耶和华帮助了我。
14 耶和华是我的力量,
是我的诗歌;
祂拯救了我。
15 义人的帐篷里传出胜利的欢呼声:
“耶和华伸出右手施展了大能!
16 耶和华高举右手,
耶和华的右手施展了大能!”
17 我必不至于死,
我要活着,
并要述说耶和华的作为。
18 耶和华虽然重重地惩罚我,
却没有置我于死地。
19 给我打开圣殿的门吧,
我要进去称谢耶和华。
20 这是耶和华的门,
义人都可以进去。
21 耶和华啊!我称谢你,
因为你听了我的祷告,
拯救了我。
22 工匠丢弃的石头已成了房角石。
23 这是耶和华的作为,
在我们看来奇妙莫测。
24 这是耶和华得胜的日子,
我们要欢喜快乐。
25 耶和华啊,求你拯救我们;
耶和华啊,求你使我们亨通。
26 奉耶和华之名而来的当受称颂!
我们要在耶和华的殿中祝福你们。
27 耶和华是上帝,
祂的光照亮我们。
要用绳索拴住祭牲,
牵到祭坛的角那里。
28 你是我的上帝,我要称谢你;
你是我的上帝,我要尊崇你。
29 你们要称谢耶和华,
因为祂是美善的,
祂的慈爱永远长存。
