New International Reader's Version

Psalm 144

Psalm 144

A psalm of David.

Give praise to the Lord, my Rock.
    He trains my hands for war.
    He trains my fingers for battle.
He is my loving God and is like a fort to me.
    He is my place of safety and the God who saves me.
He is like a shield that keeps me safe.
    He brings nations under my control.

Lord, what are human beings that you take care of them?
    What are mere people that you think about them?
Their lives don’t last any longer than a breath.
    Their days are like a shadow that quickly disappears.

Lord, open up your heavens and come down.
    Touch the mountains, and they will pour out smoke.
Send flashes of lightning and scatter my enemies.
    Shoot your arrows and chase them away.
My enemies are like a mighty flood.
    Reach down from heaven and save me.
    Save me from outsiders who attack me.
They tell all kinds of lies with their mouths.
    Even when they make a promise by raising their right hands, they don’t mean it.

My God, I will sing a new song to you.
    I will make music to you on a lyre that has ten strings.
10 You are the God who helps kings win battles.
    You save your servant David.

From death by the sword 11 save me.
    Set me free from outsiders who attack me.
They tell all kinds of lies with their mouths.
    Even when they make a promise by raising their right hands, they don’t mean it.

12 While our sons are young,
    they will be like healthy plants.
Our daughters will be like pillars
    that have been made to decorate a palace.
13 Our storerooms will be filled
    with every kind of food.
The sheep in our fields will increase by thousands.
    They will increase by tens of thousands.
14     Our oxen will pull heavy loads.
None of our city walls will be broken down.
    No one will be carried off as a prisoner.
    No cries of pain will be heard in our streets.

15 Blessed is the nation about whom all these things are true.
    Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.

诗篇 144

祈求拯救与丰裕

大卫的诗。

1耶和华——我的磐石当受称颂,
祂使我能争善战。
祂是我慈爱的上帝,
我的堡垒,我的避难所,
我的拯救者,我的盾牌,
我投靠祂。
祂使列国臣服于我。

耶和华啊,
人算什么,你竟顾念他?
世人算什么,你竟眷顾他?
因为人不过像一口气,
他的年日不过像影子转眼消逝。
耶和华啊,
求你打开天门,亲自降临;
求你触摸群山,使群山冒烟。
求你发出闪电驱散敌人,
求你射出利箭击溃他们。
求你从天上伸手从惊涛骇浪中拯救我,
从外族人手中拯救我。
他们满口谎言,
起誓也心怀诡诈。
上帝啊,我要向你唱新歌,
用十弦琴歌颂你。
10 你使君王得胜,
救你的仆人大卫逃离刀剑的杀戮。
11 求你从外族人手中拯救我,
他们满口谎言,
起誓也心怀诡诈。

12 愿我们的儿子年轻时像茁壮的树木,

我们的女儿像宫殿中精雕的柱子。
13 愿我们的仓库堆满各样的谷物,
我们的羊在田野繁衍众多,
成千上万。
14 愿我们的牲口驮满货物[a]
我们的城墙固若金汤,
无人被掳,街上没有哭叫声。
15 生活在这种光景里的人有福了!
尊耶和华为上帝的人有福了!
