Psalm 116

Psalm 116

I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
    he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
    I will call on him as long as I live.

The cords of death entangled me,
    the anguish of the grave came over me;
    I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
    Lord, save me!”

The Lord is gracious and righteous;
    our God is full of compassion.
The Lord protects the unwary;
    when I was brought low, he saved me.

Return to your rest, my soul,
    for the Lord has been good to you.

For you, Lord, have delivered me from death,
    my eyes from tears,
    my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before the Lord
    in the land of the living.

10 I trusted in the Lord when I said,
    “I am greatly afflicted”;
11 in my alarm I said,
    “Everyone is a liar.”

12 What shall I return to the Lord
    for all his goodness to me?

13 I will lift up the cup of salvation
    and call on the name of the Lord.
14 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people.

15 Precious in the sight of the Lord
    is the death of his faithful servants.
16 Truly I am your servant, Lord;
    I serve you just as my mother did;
    you have freed me from my chains.

17 I will sacrifice a thank offering to you
    and call on the name of the Lord.
18 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people,
19 in the courts of the house of the Lord
    in your midst, Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord.[a]

Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 116

感謝拯救之恩

1我愛耶和華,
因為祂垂聽了我的呼求和禱告。
因為祂垂聽我的祈求,
我一生都要向祂禱告。
死亡的繩索纏繞我,
陰間的恐怖籠罩我,
我被困苦和憂愁淹沒。
於是,我求告耶和華,
說:「耶和華啊,求你拯救我。」
耶和華仁慈、公義,
我們的上帝充滿憐憫。
耶和華保護心地單純的人,
危難之時祂救了我。
我的心啊,再次安寧吧,
因為耶和華恩待你。
祂救我的性命脫離死亡,
止住我眼中的淚水,
使我雙腳免於滑倒。
我要在世上事奉耶和華。
10 我相信,所以才說:
「我受盡了痛苦。」
11 我曾驚恐地說:
「人人都說謊。」
12 我拿什麼報答耶和華賜給我的一切恩惠呢?
13 我要為耶和華的拯救之恩而舉杯稱頌祂的名。
14 我要在耶和華的子民面前還我向祂許的願。

15 耶和華的眼目顧惜祂聖民的死亡。
16 耶和華啊!我是你的僕人,
是你的僕人,是你婢女的兒子。
你除去了我的鎖鏈。
17 我要向你獻上感恩祭,
呼求你的名。
18-19 我要在耶路撒冷,
在耶和華的殿中,
在耶和華的子民面前還我向祂許的願。

你們要讚美耶和華!
