New International Reader's Version

Psalm 146

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord.

I will praise the Lord.
    I will praise the Lord all my life.
    I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Don’t put your trust in human leaders.
    Don’t trust in people who can’t save you.
When they die, they return to the ground.
    On that day their plans come to nothing.

Blessed are those who depend on the God of Jacob for help.
    Blessed are those who put their hope in the Lord their God.
He is the Maker of heaven and earth and the ocean.
    He made everything in them.
    He remains faithful forever.
He stands up for those who are treated badly.
    He gives food to hungry people.
The Lord sets prisoners free.
    The Lord gives sight to those who are blind.
The Lord lifts up those who feel helpless.
    The Lord loves those who do what is right.
The Lord watches over the outsiders who live in our land.
    He takes good care of children whose fathers have died.
    He also takes good care of widows.
But he causes evil people to fail
    in everything they do.

10 The Lord rules forever.
    The God of Zion will rule for all time to come.

Praise the Lord.

诗篇 146

赞美上帝的帮助

1你们要赞美耶和华!
我的心啊,你要赞美耶和华。
我要一生赞美耶和华,
我一息尚存都要赞美祂。
你们不要倚靠权贵,
不要倚靠世人,
他们救不了你们。
他们气息一断,便归回尘土,
他们的打算转眼成空。
蒙雅各的上帝相助、仰望上帝耶和华的人有福了!
耶和华创造了天、地、海和其中的万物,
祂永远信实可靠。
祂为受压制的人申冤,
赐食物给饥饿的人,
使被囚者得自由。
耶和华叫瞎子看见,
扶持被重担所压的人,
祂喜爱义人。
耶和华保护寄居异地的人,
看顾孤儿寡妇,
祂挫败恶人的阴谋诡计。
10 耶和华永远掌权。
锡安啊,
你的上帝要世世代代做王。
你们要赞美耶和华!
