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.

詩篇 144

祈求拯救與豐裕

大衛的詩。

1耶和華——我的磐石當受稱頌,
祂使我能爭善戰。
祂是我慈愛的上帝,
我的堡壘,我的避難所,
我的拯救者,我的盾牌,
我投靠祂。
祂使列國臣服於我。

耶和華啊,
人算什麼,你竟顧念他?
世人算什麼,你竟眷顧他?
因為人不過像一口氣,
他的年日不過像影子轉眼消逝。
耶和華啊,
求你打開天門,親自降臨;
求你觸摸群山,使群山冒煙。
求你發出閃電驅散敵人,
求你射出利箭擊潰他們。
求你從天上伸手從驚濤駭浪中拯救我,
從外族人手中拯救我。
他們滿口謊言,
起誓也心懷詭詐。
上帝啊,我要向你唱新歌,
用十弦琴歌頌你。
10 你使君王得勝,
救你的僕人大衛逃離刀劍的殺戮。
11 求你從外族人手中拯救我,
他們滿口謊言,
起誓也心懷詭詐。

12 願我們的兒子年輕時像茁壯的樹木,

我們的女兒像宮殿中精雕的柱子。
13 願我們的倉庫堆滿各樣的穀物,
我們的羊在田野繁衍眾多,
成千上萬。
14 願我們的牲口馱滿貨物[a]
我們的城牆固若金湯,
無人被擄,街上沒有哭叫聲。
15 生活在這種光景裡的人有福了!
尊耶和華為上帝的人有福了!
