诗篇 135

赞美之歌

11-2 你们要赞美耶和华!
赞美祂的名!
耶和华的仆人啊,
在耶和华的殿中,
在我们上帝的院宇中事奉的人啊,
你们要赞美祂!
你们要赞美耶和华,
因为祂是美善的;
你们要歌颂祂的名,
因为祂的名美好无比。
祂拣选雅各做祂的子民,
拣选以色列作祂的产业。
我知道耶和华伟大,
我们的主超越一切神明。
耶和华在天上、地下、海洋、
深渊按自己的旨意行事。
祂使云雾从地极上升,
发出电光,带来雨水,
从祂的仓库带出风来。

祂击杀了埃及人的长子和头胎的牲畜。
祂在埃及行神迹奇事,
惩罚法老和他的一切臣仆。
10 祂毁灭列国,
杀戮强大的君王:
11 亚摩利王西宏、巴珊王噩和迦南所有的君王。
12 祂把这些国家的土地赐给祂的以色列子民,
作为他们的产业。
13 耶和华啊,
你的名永远长存,
你的威名传到万代。
14 因为耶和华必为祂的子民申冤,
怜悯祂的仆人。

15 外族人的神像是人用金银造的。
16 它们有口不能说,有眼不能看,
17 有耳不能听,口中毫无气息。
18 那些制造它们、信靠它们的人也会和它们一样。
19 以色列人啊,
你们要称颂耶和华!
亚伦的子孙啊,
你们要称颂耶和华!
20 利未的子孙啊,
你们要称颂耶和华!
你们敬畏耶和华的人都要称颂祂![a]
21 要赞美锡安的耶和华,
赞美住在耶路撒冷的耶和华。
你们要赞美耶和华!

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 135

Psalm 135

Praise the Lord.

Praise the name of the Lord.
    You who serve the Lord, praise him.
You who serve in the house of the Lord, praise him.
    You who serve in the courtyards of the temple of our God, praise him.

Praise the Lord, because he is good.
    Sing praise to his name, because that is pleasant.
The Lord has chosen the people of Jacob to be his own.
    He has chosen Israel to be his special treasure.

I know that the Lord is great.
    I know that our Lord is greater than all gods.
The Lord does anything he wants to do
    in the heavens and on the earth.
    He does it even in the deepest parts of the oceans.
He makes clouds rise from one end of the earth to the other.
    He sends lightning with the rain.
    He brings the wind out of his storerooms.

He killed the oldest son of each family in Egypt.
    He struck down the oldest males that were born to people and animals.
He did miraculous signs in Egypt.
    He did wonders against Pharaoh and everyone who served him.
10 He destroyed many nations.
    He killed mighty kings.
11 He killed Sihon, the king of the Amorites,
    and Og, the king of Bashan.
    He killed all the kings of Canaan.
12 He gave their land as a gift
    to his people Israel.

13 Lord, your name continues forever.
    Lord, your fame will last for all time to come.
14 When the Lord hands down his sentence, it will be in his people’s favor.
    He will show deep concern for those who serve him.

15 The statues of the nations’ gods are made out of silver and gold.
    They are made by human hands.
16 They have mouths but can’t speak.
    They have eyes but can’t see.
17 They have ears but can’t hear.
    They have mouths but can’t breathe.
18 Those who make statues of gods will be like them.
    So will all those who trust in them.

19 People of Israel, praise the Lord.
    Priests of Aaron, praise the Lord.
20 Tribe of Levi, praise the Lord.
    You who have respect for the Lord, praise him.
21 Give praise to the Lord in Zion.
    Give praise to the God who lives in Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord.
